Quoting Quiverfull: Porn and Romance Novels Create Idealized Lies?

by the Duggar girls from their book “Growing Up Duggar” page 111 and rather ironic considering Jill’s recent marriage and Jessa’s courtship with Ben Seewald

“We have met some girls who have simply fallen in love with the idea of marriage and are just looking for a guy to fulfill their dreams.  They have an image in mind of what marriage is, and they are in love with that image. One girl told us recently, “I was in love with the thought of being in love, and it consumed my every waking hour.” This is one of the greatest dangers of romance novels. They paint a picture of an unrealistic, unobtainable relationship. It’s the same thing pornography does to men. Viewing pornography gives them a distorted view of women that leads them down the path of immorality and guilt.”
