For most people, the first kiss can be a bit awkward. For Jill Duggar, “19 Kids and Counting” star, her first kiss took place with an audience of 1,000 friends and family at her wedding in Springdale, Arkansas on June 21.
It was left no secret that the couple would share their first kiss on their wedding day. The Duggars, who are known for their large clan and conservative Christian faith, have strict “courting” policies in their home. Prior to engagement, the couple had limited physical contact. “Side hugging” was the most physical contact that was deemed appropriate for the couple until engagement where they could proceed to hand holding.
However, as ABC reported, Jill broke all the courting rules when she greeted Derick at the airport with a full frontal hug! The “more than side hug” was so steamy it even set off the airport alarms. The family was quick to forgive, but Michelle Duggar noted she was “sure they wouldn’t let that happen again.”
Bless their hearts, they just gave a big hug but I think intentions were to do a side hug. Needless to say, I’m sure they won’t let that happen again.
With all the anticipation leading up to the first kiss, it did not disappoint. See the adorable first kiss photo below.
The couple did not seem the least bit nervous about sharing this special moment with their 1,000 guests. Derick whisks Jill into his arms, tilts her back and lays a big one on her.
Some tweeters were not as impressed with the couple’s wedding or conservative values:

Some were just curious how someone could hold out that long on their first kiss:
