Jana Duggar is the only 19 Kids and Counting star who remains unmarried in her 30s. Fans believe his dad, Jim Bob Duggar, has something to do with it.
Jana Duggar is Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s eldest daughter. However, she remains single while four of her younger sisters have already walked down the aisle.
Jana’s singleness is an issue for many who has been following the family. Fans know that the Duggar kids usually marry young.
Jana Duggar remains still single
Jana Duggar is John-David’s twin. Both turned 30 years old on Jan. 12.
The Duggar kids tend to start courting and get married in their early 20s. All of them are already parents before they turn 30 years old.
John-David has been married to Abbie Burnett on Nov. 3, 2018. He didn’t marry as early as his other siblings, but he welcomed his first child with Abbie days before he turned 30.
Meanwhile, Joy-Anna was the youngest Duggar to get married. She walked down the aisle when she was just 19 years old. Jill, Jessa, Jinger, and Joy have all started their families already.
Jill Duggar has two children with husband Derick Dillard. Jessa Duggar has three kids with Ben Seewald. Jinger Duggar has one daughter with Jeremy Vuolo. And, Joy-Anna Duggar has one son with Austin Forsyth.
Jana’s two younger brothers Joseph Garrett and Josiah Matthew are also married. Joseph has two children with wife, Kendra. Meanwhile, Josiah has one baby girl with Lauren.
Why Jana is still single
Jana Duggar is very talented and responsible. In fact, many believe that she will make a perfect wife one day. Thus, many are looking forward to witnessing her big day. Fans want to meet Jana’s “the one,” but the waiting has been on for years.
According to a new theory, Jana is single because her father Jim Bob doesn’t want to let her go. The “19 Kids and Counting” patriarch reportedly found her “too important to running the household.”
Jana usually takes over Michelle’s responsibility at home. When the Duggar matriarch is too busy, Jana looks after her younger siblings. She cooks in the kitchen, teaches her brothers and children, and does more around their home.
Based on the speculations, Jim Bon only wanted to delay her marriage not prevent it entirely. However, Jana was reportedly already too discouraged and probably too old to marry.
Jana Duggar’s dating history
Jana Duggar has not introduced any boyfriend on Counting On. However, some fans believed she and Lawson Bates were courting.
Carlin Bates, Lawson’s younger sister, shared a video of them playing cards on Instagram. In the clip were Carlin, her husband, Lawson, Jana, and Jana’s younger sister, Johannah Duggar.
The netizens who saw the video found it odd that Jana and her sister were there. The Duggars practice a one-sibling chaperone when someone is dating. So, they concluded that Jana and Lawson were dating and Johannah was there to chaperone her older sister.
