Josiah’s hand placement breaks courting rules, as one of the rules is no chest-on-chest contact. Couples are only allowed to express affection through side hugs.

Josiah and Lauren wouldn’t be the first couple to break courtship rules. Joy-Anna Duggar came under fire when her then-boyfriend Austin Forsyth touched her hand while renovating a home. Couples are not allowed to hold hands until they are engaged. When she accepted his marriage proposal, she gave him a full hug instead of a side hug.
