The Duck Dynasty clan shares their excitement on social media about making Mary Kate McEacharn an official member of the family. On October 10, 2014, Willie and Korie Robertson's oldest son, John Luke proposed to his then 18-year-old girlfriend. John Luke, who was just 19 at the time caused lots of banter on social media because of the couples young age.
Both John Luke and Mary Kate have spoke out against all of the negative talk. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight John Luke stated:
"Our relationship is focused on God... The divorce rate is 50% for everyone. But, for Christians who are active in their faith, it is 35% less than that.”
The couple and their families are extremely confident that they will make it. The Robertson family, who have a history of young marriages, continue to stand by their commitment to one other and God. Proving all the doubters wrong!
Mary Kate's 19th birthday was celebrated on May 20, 2015 with endless love from the Robertson family on social media, and even some Taylor Swift tunes! Take a look at some of their sweet comments below.
Congratulations John Luke and Mary Kate! Can't wait to see what the future hold for you two!
