Though their family has experienced rocky times over the past year, the Duggar children say their faith in marriage remains unchanged.
“Even though all this happened, we still want the same things moving forward,” Jana Duggar, 26, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, which features the Duggars opening up about life following a cheating scandal involving their brother Josh. “You’re not going to marry a ‘perfect’ person; we aren’t perfect ourselves!”
And the ladies have an idea of what attributes they would like in an ideal husband.
“I think we would want someone like our dad [Jim Bob] – someone who is a strong leader and who loves God and loves others more than himself,” says Joy, 18.

“We aren’t anxious about get ting married. But when you meet a boy, you examine their character,” says Jinger, 22.
The Duggar family is soon returning to TV with the first full season of TLC’s Jill and Jessa: Counting On. The series premieres March 15 at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
