I remember watching a documentary on this family on TLC. =)
I believe they have 19 children now... lol
According to me: As long as they are financially stable and are able to take care of their children indivually, then why not?
I personally wouldnt want to raise such a huge family. The couple ust love each other tons! haha.

No, as far as I know the 18th child (a girl) was born in Dec,2008 Smile. Hats off to Michelle DuggarSmile. She never seems tired of taking care of the kids Clap

I do believe that if people can afford to have that many children and fulfill them emotionally and intellectually then they can have as many as they want.

However, I do think it is an overkill. Not my cup of tea. For me there are a lot more things in the world we can put our time and effort in. A small family is best. You get to know each other better. Quality over quantity.

I know it seems sweet and everything, but if you watch the show you realize that all the kids have an older "buddy". All the kids are divided into teams. The oldest kid is in charge of the team. This involves cooking, cleaning, teaching with the team. The parents are not involved with the kids as much. What is the point of having so many kids if their siblings are going to be raising them. Should the parents not be responsible for each child. Most times it is one of the girls taking care of the kids once the child is on solid food since Michelle is pregnant.
 
The kids dont go to school and are home-schooled. Which means that they are taught by their siblings and mom (hwo BTW is only a high school grad) . What kind of an education do they have? Yeah I know having a big family seems very nice but the logistics are impossible to manage
