The eldest of the Duggar daughters on TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting recently revealed that they avoid spending time with men in order to not fall prey to sin and have sex before marriage. They were interviewed about this on Good Morning America today.

Their book, Growing Up Duggar, authored by Jana (24), Jill (22), Jessa (21) and Jinger (20), described the pitfalls that can happen when people rush to put themselves into physical and moral compromising situations that only bring temporary fulfillment.

The girls also say they “control” what’s going on internally. ”By censoring our thoughts through the filter of God’s Word, we will be able to recant any wrong thoughts or temptations that try to sneak in.”

Their mom, Michelle Duggar, posted a video just prior to the release of their book and explains it is her belief for children to not date prior to marriage, but definitely at least weekly after marriage.

Your thoughts on such a counter-cultural way to live?  Is it repressive to refrain from developing soul ties and bonds with people you won’t end up marrying? Or is it smart?
