John Luke Robertson may be young and beardless, but lessons learned from his "Ducky Dynasty" parents Willie and Kori have stuck with him into his own married life. What's one of the great things he learned from them?
According to ABC News, John Luke says his family wasn't always wealthy and successful, and in his younger years "My dad worked at a summer camp and my mom was an art teacher. Growing up in that kind of working environment, I learned my whole life to create and I saw my parents working to make their own mark. That compelled me to make my own mark."
And making his own mark is what he's done after getting married to Mary Kate at the young age of 20. Now he's offering timely advice of his own to his own generation as he's already experienced a hectic life that's involved getting married, building a house, and going to college at the same time. He's written about it in his new book "Young and Beardless: The Search for God, Purpose, and a Meaningful Life."
REASON FOR WRITING THE BOOK?
"I thought I could put out a totally unique perspective that is different from what the rest of the family has shared about the show and about life."
BIG ADVICE FOR 18- TO 25-YEAR-OLDS?
"I think we have more opportunities and resources at our disposal than any other generation before us. And I think that a lot of the time, we waste all of that on Netflix. Our culture, you get respect by watching 25 hours of a TV show. I watch a lot of TV, but there is so much more we could be doing with our time."
HOW HE STAYS CONNECTED WITH HIS WIFE DURING A HECTIC DAY
"We always have dinner together, that's the staple. No mater what's going on, what we are doing, we always have dinner together."
BEST PART OF MARRIAGE WITH MARY KATE
"Just being able to be with her everyday."
"...being with her all the time. When you are dating, you get into a fight, you can go to your separate houses and think about it. When you're married, where are you gonna go?"
