Bates #12 and #15 Turn 20 and 16

Between January 23rd and February 17th, a span of less than four weeks, the Bates family has a whopping 10 birthdays to celebrate, including two "double birthdays." The first double birthday was Trace and Jeb on February 1st, and the second is today. Jackson is turning 20, and Addallee is turning 16. Happy birthday to this brother-sister duo!

    1. What on earth is a purity ring and do the guys get one as well, or is just for the girls?

    2. Anon 8:03 The rings are supposed to prevent unseemly activity prior to marriage. I don't know exactly how they work though.

    3. The rings are supposed to be a reminder to stay pure until you get married

    4. 6:08- So, the guys get them, too? What's good for the goose, is good for the gander!

    6. I find these "purity" rings to be creepy, especially since the males don't have them. Is it somehow supposed to symbolize the girls are held to a standard the boys are not?

    7. I don't know but it seems the guys don't get them. There have been several male celebrities who wear/wore them though. Agree purity rings are creepy..

  5. Happy Double Birtbdays Jackson and Addallee! Jackson,your becoming quite a young man and will make a good husband and father someday to some lucky girl and Addallee,your becoming quite the young lady. I've noticed your wearing makeup like your older sisters now and it makes you look so beautiful and grown up. You look like Tori the most out of all your 7 older sisters.

    1. Little late here but 16 is still a child. Most young people have naturally good skin and don't need a ton of makeup.

    I'm glad to hear you're driving now. I hope your hearing is doing ok. I hope the Bates family members and the Duggar family members come back on cable TV soon I miss the shows. I have been praying for this a very long time. I love both shows. It would make me very happy and make my day. Natasha b
