Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar Celebrate Their 31st Wedding Anniversary & It Looks Lovely (PHOTOS)

It's a Duggar-versary! Jim Bob and Michelle celebrated their 31st wedding anniversary yesterday, and from the looks of it, the whole clan gathered to wish them well. The family has been through 31 years, 19 kids, and their fair share of scandals, but JB and Michelle look happier than ever.


Jim Bob and Michelle wrote sweet notes to each other on their family blog and shared a picture from their wedding day. It's adorable, but we can't ignore how young they look. Check it out:

Happy 31st Anniversary, Dad & Mom! We love you!

Crazy, right?! They were married on July 21, 1984, which means Jim Bob had juuussttt turned 19 at the time, and Michelle was 17. That's SO young to get married, but since they're going strong 31 years later, they must have done something right.

Here's what Michelle had to say to Jim Bob:

Recently, when one of our daughters asked, "Mom, what one quality should I look for in a future spouse?", as I considered the answer, I realized what it is that I admire so much in you, Jim Bob. It is that you LOVE & HONOR God and in humility you are open & transparent with me, simply put, HUMILITY and the FEAR OF THE LORD.

In response, Jim Bob wrote: 

The greatest blessing of my life was 31 years ago, on July 21, 1984, when Michelle married me. She is the virtuous woman that Proverbs 31 talks about. She is the ultimate wife and mother and I love her more and more each day.

Jim Bob also gave Michelle a "cube" ... which turned out to be a box with a custom ring with all 19 birthstones of the kids on it (classic dad joke):

Looks like the whole fam was there -- including Josh, Anna, and their new baby Meredith. Josh has LOTS to thank his family for, and it looks like he's still trying to get in their good graces with yet another sweet Instagram post for his parents. You wanted more photos? We got 'em:

There's a lot to be said about this family (and a good deal of it is not good), but we do have respect for any couple that makes it to 31 years. Happy anniversary, Jim Bob and Michelle!
