Reality star Jessa Duggar, third daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, is now in a courtship with Ben Seewald, after enduring parental security.
The parents, who are dedicated to Christianity, monitored the conversations between Seewald, 18, and Duggar, 20, when communicating by electronic devices.
The 19 Kids & Counting reality star's courtship with Seewald will appear on the TLC show. The show returned this past Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST.
"Courting is getting to know each other in a group setting, both families spending time together and the couple setting goals together to determine if they are meant to marry," said Bob, according to People. "With dating, a couple will often pair off alone and that sometimes leads to a more physical relationship."
The couple met in church and Seewald gained permission from Jessa's family to converse via text and phone. Most of the time, the texts were about theology and scripture.
“It has been interesting to watch their interactions because they share very similar beliefs,” Michelle added, stated The Christian Science Monitor.
