The Duggar family has had a whirlwind year: Jill Duggar got married to Derick Dillard and the two just welcomed their first son Israel David last week, while Jessa Duggar got engaged to (and married) Ben Seewald as well. Now, another Duggar sibling is getting ready to enter that exciting time of his life — 18-year-old Josiah Duggar reportedly just entered a courtship with 17-year-old Marjorie Jackson!
In case you've forgotten, courting is a more old-fashioned form of dating in which the Duggars partake to prepare for marriage. When courting someone, you must always be accompanied by a chaperone and can only side-hug.
Funny enough, Josiah officially began courting Marjorie, who he met while taking Spanish lessons form her mother Analucia, the same day Jill gave birth to her baby. And according to the happy teen, everything so far is going great!
"It's been going very well," Josiah told People. "I met Marjorie a few years ago, when I was taking Spanish lessons at her house and I was very impressed with the way she was with her siblings and her love for the Lord."
The two spent more time together during a mission trip to El Salvador in December, which is where Josiah really became interested in courting Marjorie. "She really caught my eye," he continued. "That is really where I noticed her."
Marjorie, on the other hand, noticed Josiah early on. "I met him at Spanish class a few years back," she explained. "For me it was an immediate thing, I have always admired him and his family."
Hopefully this means we'll have another Duggar wedding soon enough!
