The stars of the patriarchal, pro-life wonder that is TLC's are now counting and expecting more grandchildren, which one can only expect when you're essentially raised as professional human breeders who think everything from hugs to birth control will send you on a highway to Hell.Say what you will about the ultra-conservative, ultra-huge brood, but one thing is pretty clear: They're good at what they do, which is procreating and repressing sexual urges, and covering up their son, Josh Duggar's, sexual molestation proclivities and incest habits to authorities.The couple planned to tie the knot on October 28, but they've reportedly bumped the date up -- to this weekend.The Daily Mail reports that despite a planned seven-month engagement, the couple will wed on Saturday, May 20.

"You need to always be available when he calls," Michelle has said. One example: When Ben Seewald jokingly texted fiance Jessa "Give me a ring," dad Jim Bob was looped in to quickly respond, "No ring yet." No bikinis for this family -- or really, any average swimsuits at all.Instead of going to the police, Jim Bob and Michelle sent Josh Duggar to an Arkansas state trooper's house for "a stern talking to," then he came home and, you know, lived in the same house with the girls he molested already.(This Arkansas state trooper, Joseph Hutchens, later went to prison for child pornography charges.
