Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar are celebrating 31 years of wedded bliss. 

For the July 21 anniversary, the Duggar family shared a throwback pic of the famous parents on their wedding day. The mother-of-19 was just 17-years-old when she married 19-year-old Jim Bob in their home state of Arkansas in a classic dress straight out of the '80s. "Happy 31st Anniversary, Dad & Mom! We love you!" the caption read. 

Jim Bob and Michelle's oldest son Jush Duggar, who was at the center of the molestation scandal that led to TLC cancelling 19 Kids and Counting earlier this month, also got in on the family fun—sharing with fans his own retro shots of the couple.

In the 27-year-old's Instagram photo, Jim Bob and Michelle look so in love as they walk down the aisle and share a sweet smooch. In the 25 years that followed, Michelle gave birth to 19 bundles of joy and the Duggar family became a household name during its ten season stint on television. 

The 50-year-old patriarch also commemorated the duo's special day with a pretty impressive gift. In a home video shared on the family's website, members of the Duggar clan—including Josh's newborn daughter Meredith—gather around as Michelle opens what Jim Bob jokes is "a little special... cube."

In actuality, the small box was really just housing a Jim Bob-designed ring with each of their children's birthstones. Talk about thoughtful!

The 48-year-old Duggar matriarch also offered some sweet words for Jim Bob, saying she is "so honored" to be his wife. 

"I'm so grateful for how you lead, protect and cherish me," Michelle wrote in the blog post. "You are my best friend and encourager, my most faithful prayer partner and my life long companion & love... I'm so grateful that you share your heart with me. Your hopes, your dreams your successes, your weaknesses and even your failures."

Jim Bob called Michelle "the greatest blessing" of his life, admiring her for being, "a strong leader, yet tender hearted, and [having] a sweet, loving spirit."

"She is my best friend, we share everything. Michelle is selfless, always thinking of others first. She is an example to millions of women, her children rise up and call her blessed," Duggar continued.
