The Seewalds attend a Baptist church about an hour away from their home.[23]

Their son Ben followed strict rules throughout his courtship and engagement to Jessa, including limited physical contact and never being without a chaperone.[25] Their daughter Jess does not follow these rules, and has publicly stated that she is against courtship.[26]
