The Duggar family of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting has been described as many things over the years. Traditional. Old-fashioned. Different. Even controversial.

Above all, however, they are one large, loving and tight-knit clan. These 21 photos from the family's official Instagram accounts prove it and then some ...

If you watch 19 Kids and Counting online, you know that the Arkansas brood's lifestyle flies in the face of many things we take for granted in modern society.

Forget no sex before marriage ... it's no full-frontal hugs before marriage in the Duggar household, and in many cases, no Internet. Too many temptations.

In that sense, their steadfast religious beliefs belie their collective social media savvy, and may foster the idea that they are backwards, joyless individuals.

Not the case. They may not drink alcohol, or show any skin to speak of, but that doesn't mean they don't enjoy life, have hobbies, or show affection.

From the grown members of the family who have gone on to marry and have kids of their own, to those who are still little, there's a lot of love to go around.

Whatever you think of their religion or politics, there's a lot many of us could all learn - or at least appreciate - when it comes to this adorable bunch.
