On her relationship with Uncle Jim Bob

"I kinda get under [Jim Bob’s] skin, but he's not going to control me, and I don't think he wants to control me… I'm not going to change who I am to have a certain image. I'm the free spirit of the family," Duggar exclusively told RadarOnline.

On the Duggars' courting rules

"They have a Duggar bubble. I can't even imagine courting like that. It works for them, and I hope to God they have successful relationships… but what if they suck at kissing? I can't imagine not kissing to full blown 'Let's do it all' in 30 seconds."

On the Duggars' lack of dating

I knew that he did go away for a little bit, but I didn’t know why. Honestly, I don’t even think about it. I think we’re all past it."

"People have always called me the 'Rebel Duggar," Duggar told People, "but I have morals and standards."

On leaving her Duggar surname behind

"I can't wait to change my name! It's going to be a great day when Dillon signs that marriage license and my last name changes. You have no idea."
