The Duggar Weddings

Everyone has strong opinions about the Duggar family on TLC's 19 kids and counting. However, this is not one of those articles. I'm interested in recent events of Jill getting married, and shortly after Jessa getting engaged. It was also just recently announced that Jill is pregnant, barely 8 weeks after their wedding.

While I think it is wonderful that Jill and her new husband are expecting, I'm surprised that they wanted to try so soon for a baby. I suppose given their family history that it should not be a big surprise, but I thought maybe they would want to enjoy their newlywed life more first. I'm assuming that they are not using birth control, and if that is the case, the world is in for wayyyy more Dillard babies!

Now Jessa was hot to trot to announce her engagement, after the so called long 11 months of courting, but Jill stole her thunder with her baby announcement. It's going to be all weddings and baby showers from here on out! The one thing I am interested in is that the older Duggar sister Jana does not seem to be courting. Now, in the normal modern world, this would be no big deal. But the fact that she is 24 and not dating does seem a little different in this family's world. I wonder if she is embarrassed because she isn't married off like her sisters, and that's why she does not appear much on the show. She should not be embarrassed and Jana if you are reading this, YOU GO GIRL.

That said, seeing how all this is going to go with the sisters getting married right and left, it would appear that we are all in for a long roller coaster ride. How Jim Bob and Michelle will afford all of this I cannot imagine, but it seemed that Jill had a very simple wedding (only attended by 1,000 people!) with a church reception with cupcakes. Jessa seems to be little more high maintenance, so we may have a possible bridezilla on our hands! I can't wait to watch the Derick and Jill wedding special, and see all the fun details of their day go down. Hit the comments and let me know if you will be watching on TLC as well!!
