Is John in a Courtship?


The media sure loves the Duggars...especially the gossip sites! Rumor has it that John-David Duggar is in a courtship.

This afternoon, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar released a statement to put that rumor to rest: 

John is not courting and not in a relationship...and he has never been in one! Just thought we'd set that straight. He's still waiting for the right one at the right time.

Jim Bob, who has tried multiple times to find someone for John, joked in a recent episode that he is accepting applications from eligible women.

After Jessa's wedding, Jana, John-David, Jinger, and Joseph shared their views on relationships with PEOPLE. Click here to read more.

  1. There is a petition going around trying to gain signatures to cancel the Duggar's show because they support traditional marriage between one man and one woman. Please sign this petition telling TLC to keep this show. http://www.petitions24.com/keep_19_kids_and_counting_on_tlc

  2. I think it is great that John David is waiting for just the right lady! Now days the young people feel like they need to rush to get married because if it isn't right they can get divorced and it ends badly. Everything good is worth waiting for. My daughter is 33 and I am pleased that she too is waiting for just the right person to be with forever... If you listen with your heart God will guide you in the right direction!!!!

  3. He seems like such a sweet, humble, hard-working young man. I admire his dedication to his family and his devotion to God. Like his beautiful twin Jana, he will be a great partner for the right person when God reveals His plan. They both seem like shy, private individuals. I hope when that time comes they will be given the privacy and respect they deserve.

  4. John is such a Godly young man. He deserves better than the media budding into his personal life and making up rumors. I pray for God's blessing for him and that the person who started this rumor to have the forgiveness that the lie requires.

  6. Please leave this family alone! Use your judgmental opinions and hateful opinions for some of the tasteless reality shows that are out there. There are plenty of them!

    1. I like this family as well even if I don't agree with everything. One thing we all have to realize is that in doing a reality show-and being paid for it-showing intimate moments that the average person doesn't i. e, childbirth-then you are open fodder for all that goes with it.

  8. I have heard there's a position going around on facebook trying to get you off of TLC. If that happens, there's a Christian station called UPlifting that plays Christian shows all day long. That is another option for you. I love your show and what your family stands for with values, and your family.

    2. I think us fans need a petition to keep the show on, however i really dont see it going anywhere, remember Duck Dynasty, they didnt get cancelled.TLC will only cancel if the ratings drop and these past few seasons have been high.This family has alot of fans and as long as we still watch.Guess we will have to wait and see.

  11. Most young men choose their own wives. This family has different custom? Are they American?

  12. How old is the john man?

  13. I believe the Duggar Family has been set up. We need to start a petition to keep them on. The young man who posted his same sex picture knows the Duggars family views. He is trying to get them canceled because the do not agree with his life style choice. It is their personal page they can keep on or take off any pictures they so choose. When are people gonna learn that just because you don't agree with their choices does not mean you hate them or you are a hate monger. You just don't agree and if you don't want it shoved in your face you have the right to remove it from yout page. If anything the young man who posted that picture is a trouble maker and is tring to stir up the mud.

  14. Is anyone but me concerned about over saturation of The Duggars? I used to watch John & Kate Plus 8. It was so sweet to see how 2 loving parents could manage those kids, then after a few seasons, the activities got bigger and bigger, Kate got full of herself, and all we did was watch her going for spa treatments and pedicures at Ski Lodges, etc., the show lost its sweetness and the rest is history. Likewise with the Duggars, I enjoyed watching them homeschool and build their home, take little adventures around Arkansas. Now all the girls are way dressed up, lots of makeup, jewelry, and the show is becoming about more and more extravagant things. Travelling in Motorhomes, travelling to Europe. I don't like the constant posts, "guess what so and so Duggar is up to today." I think to myself, "I hope so and so Duggar is back in their home living their lives, and not constantly thinking about how they can grab our attention." I get that this is a big family and it's a huge blessing for them to have this show, but seriously in between episodes, can we just not hear every move they make?? Love this family, don't want to see television spoil their lives.

    1. I so agree..i posted a comment like this and i guess it was tooo strait forward.im sure someone pays for all those trips.19 kids with parents even tho they are well off buys used save the diffrence then go on all these expensive trips kinda raises a eyebrow of whose paying for it.i still love the show and continue to learn positive things from this family but i think they getting beside themselves..phrases like private party undisclosed location for their kids honeymoon people who arent on tv have private parties and undisclosed locations..stay humble duggars ! Still got love for them

  15. God will bring the right person at the right time for all your children!! Just be patient I found the right Godly man for me when I wasn't looking!

  16. Its actually smart that he's not in a hurry, as younger marriages (18-24) have a much higher rate of divorce. It pays to wait!

  17. Awww...I was hoping for another Duggar wedding!

  18. Somebody should start a petition to this petition that is going around right now. Christians need to unite to save this show

  19. Why is dad trying to find someone for John. Can't even the boys do that themselves?

  20. I don't think people were being mean. People just love John David and love to see him find love. The same is true with Jana. People like them both and since they are of age only pray both will have beautiful lives if their own. Stop being so mean.

  21. Good to see John - David waiting for the right person like his siblings have. I admire this family for taking the right steps before getting married. People should just ignore the negative comments and not even give them the time of day, just meditate on all the positive feedback. By commenting on the negative you are keeping that negative thinking alive in what maybe a very loving comment by you but brought down by the mentioning of a negative comment. Keep it positive for this loving family.

  22. Love John David! :)

  23. I think Psalm 91 is very fitting for the situation regarding people trying to remove "19 kids and counting" from TLC. I love this chapter in Psalms and I pray that God will protect and hold up the Duggar family and everything they stand for. Light will always shine through darkness!

  24. I love the fact that we can witness such a wonderful family and values like yours. I wish it didn't come with such a price for you. I follow several of you on Instagram as well and I try to not read the comments because somehow there is always people that are bashing this family. I appreciate you putting up with all the judgements to be a shiny star for the rest of us.

  25. I concur. My daughter also waited until she was 30 to find the right one, now they are married 3 years and she is gonna have a baby. I love them both!

  26. @Twana GarrettI agree with you Twana Garrett, I love this show. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but to say they want it off the air is just ridiculous. I don't agree with everything about the Duggar family but I do agree with 99% of their values. I do not agree with a lot of the other reality shows. This is one of the best and I hope they never go off the air.

  27. I love this show and I hope they do not succeed it getting it off the air. It is one of the best reality shows that I watch and there are a whole lot of the reality shows that I have never watched and never will. Hope they stay on the air until Josey grows up and marries. Love your family.

  29. ok that's good but don't you think their kids should be able to find their own boy friends ,or girl friends [ their parents can help them too. i like how they have courtships ,or dating rules .don't get me wrong I love watching their show and watching their kids grow up too. and every one has their own views about everything too.so please don't cancel the duggars. I have one question, I heard that their daughter jana is getting married and she is pregnant too.is this true or false?

  30. We never hear anything about Michelle's family. Are her parents living? Does she have siblings?

  31. The more you know about a family the more chance you would find something to be unhappy about. TheyI claim to be christian. So are 85% of people living in the US. Doesn't mean there needs to be season every year. Through social media and the occassional article that someone accomplished something seems enough. Articles about laundry and registries don't really need to make it to the secular press. It tells nothing about Christianity even.
