  4. When you do decided to get married are you going to take a pre married classes that is 12 week long with books to read and work book and video to watch. And that is a Christian class.
    I Hope you do before you get married it would be good for both of you to take.

  7. Im surprised how comfortable she is with the camera already. I guess she knows what she is getting herself into dating a duggar! Looks like a good match

  9. Wow! I'm already impressed with Marjorie. Very excited to watch this relationship develop and wish them the best.

  10. Well she is surprisingly confident for 16/17! She has quite the bubbly personality too. Since Josiah is so quick witted and outgoing, she seems like a good match. Looks like she will enjoy being in the public eye. Really enjoyed Josh's sit down chat with Josiah. I have long sensed that these two have a good connection. They are both outgoing, have a good sense of humor, and seem to appreciate each other.

  11. Wow, she is spunky! She should be a fun addition to the show. They look like a neat couple already.

  12. Marjorie seems like a great girl.Josiah has always seemed so joyful and full of life on the show, but in that clip he didn't seem very happy. Wishing them both all the best.

  13. I would be interested to know their reasons for marrying at such a young age. Ellie and Lily do you know why young people in these circles marry so early?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I hope when Jana, John, and Joseph go into relationship mode that they have a little space. These three are not as comfortable with the spotlight and I suspect might appreciate more privacy. But who knows, maybe they are all so accustomed to the camera it would not matter to them. Such a peculiar thing really, growing up in front of a camera. I wonder to what extent the crew and the public have effectively influenced and shaped the family members. At this point it would probably be as strange to them to live private lives as it would be to most of their fans to live public lives. I hope the show and all the subsequent celebrity will not have an adverse effect on any of the family in the long run.

  15. I've seen in pictures that she wears jeans. Will she be able to continue to do this? Also, if she is into musical theater, that means dancing. The Duggars are anti-dancing-- does she also have to give this up or will one of the dates be Josiah accompanying her to a Broadway show like Wicked? Will the Duggars come see her if she is in one of her community theater musical productions or will that end too?

  16. Aww, she seems so sweet!!!

  17. Marjorie was so adorable in the video! I am really excited for this courting couple. Sending lots and lots of love!

    ReplyDelete
  18. She's not at all shy in front of the camera
    She'll be a great addition to the famous duggars

    ReplyDelete
  19. I don't think Josiah will be so lovey dovey like his brother and Anna were...it looks like they are already very comfortable with each other

    ReplyDelete
  20. She seems to have a lot of personality and spunk. I like her!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wow. She is one confident young lady. :) It's interesting for me to see a christian girl bursting with that much confidence. In our church , girls try to stay calm and mostly quiet. She is cute though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am not sure what I think of her...she seems a bit too...comfortable..but she sure is cute!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I didn't expect that haha. She's very bubbly and energetic I think it's lovely!
    Good luck to the gorgeous couple

  24. Marjorie is absolutely adorable. . . .

  25. It seems like such a shame these kids just can't simply date, instead of formally announcing they are "courting"!

  30. She seems pretty sweet!:)

  31. I like her personality. I think she will be a good fit to their family!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. This couple will be like Jessa and Ben. They are best friends who have know each other for years, so that is the reason behind her confidence with the camera she was in a bunch of episodes when they were learning Spanish.

    ReplyDelete
  33. In her bio it says she is an actress. That's why she is so comfortable speaking.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is for anonymous 6, she's an actress and has a wonderful spunk about her, why would you think she should sit and not be heard. You go girl! Josiah got one who is not a follower but a doer
    and a perfect fit into a TV family!

  35. She seems really sweet. They are so cute!

  36. Wow so happy I waited to see the couples announcement last night. They look like a perfect pair and she's absolutely adorable. God bless you both

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm so happy for them! I remember having a little crush on Josiah when I first started watching years ago (don't worry we are the same age, haha) She seems like a very nice, outgoing girl. I'm sure they will be a fun couple!

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a lovely couple they make! I wish them all the luck and love together!

    ReplyDelete
  39. She's so sweet! I love how genuine and comfortable they seem to be around one another:) So excited for them!

  40. Do u think they'll save their first kiss for marrige?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Now days it is not enough to be a Godly God fearing woman they have to have 'personality'.
    Which is something I disagree with, I am for Jinger she at least acknowledges that she is not strong on personality and is still a Christian woman.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'd like to understand what's wrong with dating and why these kids are encouraged to start courting so young. Dating can be purposeful as well. If they're concerned about not dating so as to guard their hearts, courtships can be broken off just like dating relationships and maybe even more painfully since it seems that courtship is just another word for pre-engagement. I think the Duggars are great, but as a Christian myself, I'd like to understand more of their peculiar rules a bit better.

  43. I would like to see the video, but it's white.

  46. Josiah, it's important that you & Marjorie take the time in your courtship to get to know each other better. May you both allow Christ to guide your relationship & then you both will know what is right in your relationship with each other. Many people want to impart their own ideas to you both, just remember to take what is of Christ to heart & what isn't, simply let it go. Congratulations on your courting relationship.

  47. The video won't work for me :-( Can u post a picture????. I already saw the other one.

  48. She sure is different from the Duggar girls. She is going to take getting used to. Miss Confidence Marjorie!

  49. I hope they make their own rules and what's right for them. They don't need to follow in everyone's footsteps. They are their own couple.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Happy for him but just a little bit sad for Jana and John! I pray they both find the ones God has for them soon!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Seems to me that the Duggars should be very careful about courtships with their children, and marriages. With 19 kids and each subsequent married partner, there is a huge potential for problems if any of those partners turn against them. They are part of the Duggar"brand" and could create big problems if they were ever to become resentful of Michelle and Jim Bob. I hope that doesn't happen but I 'd want to be careful to not damage the image they have worked so hard to put out publicly. (trusting that someone at 17 is a good fit for marriage seems kind of risky, even the royal family knows better than that.

  52. Such a cute couple! Happy for them both:)

  53. Marjorie is certainly lively and seems to be right on.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I hope she doesn't change from not wearing jeans anymore. She used to wear jeans.

  55. Yay!! Way to go Josiah!!! You got an awesome girl!! Treasure her like the priceless jewel she is, protect her, and love her like your own body. I already love Marjorie! She fits perfect into the Duggar family! You two are just perfect for each other!

  60. She's absolutely adorable! What a breath of fresh air. I wish her and Josiah the best.

    ReplyDelete
  61. they do not seem to have another choice than courtship surrounded by family & friends. Plus this couple looks so young.....

    ReplyDelete
  62. Lol! Wow...I never heard her talk before...her personality is just like Josiah's!! That's awesome. I'm sure they sought the Lord before entering into courtship so it's awesome that God brought these two together. I could totally see them making one of Josiah's funny videos together!! God bless you guys!! So excited for you both!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I think there are too young to consider marriage, but darn they are adorable!

    I always like Josish snd it seems Marjorie has a wonderful personality!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Marjorie -- If you're comfortable in jeans, then go for it. Don't conform to the strict Duggar rules about anything unless that's where God leads YOU. Be yourself. God doesn't care if you wear jeans or a skirt or have long wavy hair or short hair.

    ReplyDelete
  65. The are terribly cute 2gether

    ReplyDelete
  66. Damage the Duggars brand? They are just a family with children who are growing up and spreading their wings. It is right and natural that they will fall in love, get married and start families of their own.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Wow she's really cute! :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. Too young to marry not good

    ReplyDelete
  69. @Anonymous i thought the same thing and am hoping they continue to let the kids decide their own rules and standards and support marjorie in what she enjoys and that after all it's about the heart and why she does what she does not how.

    ReplyDelete
  70. @Anonymousit's not marriage, its courting and can end at any time and does not mean they wil even be engaged. slow down there

    ReplyDelete
  71. @Anonymous

    Jinger has the best personality ever! She's goofy and fun as well as sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  72. response to Anonymous # 45..I think you are thinking more of the Kardashian family when you say things like "brand" and "damage the image". The Duggar family are Christians and are very careful who they select to enter a courtship with. They don't casually pick someone to go out on dates with. I don't see any "huge potential for problems" of spouses "turning against them" because as Christians they make God the focus of their relationship.

  73. These kids have allowed to grow up and, unlike many in this generation, accept responsibility so they are more mature for their age than most. I love the courtship as opposed to dating because ALL of the physical stuff is put on hold so that a relationship can be solidly formed. I think they make a cute couple and I look forward to watching them grow as a team.

  74. I love Marjorie! She's definetly very talkative and funny!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. His girl freinds sooooooo cute. I think by her personality she will be a great fit for him .Do you think they will save their first kiss for marrige? I don't. Young love birds.

    May God Bless,

  76. Marjorie is gorgeous!! I love her bubbly personality...she and Josiah will make a great couple! They are a little young, but they probably won't actually get married for at least a year since they're so young. Congrats guys!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I was just wondering, at what age do the Duggars consider, a child old enough to start courting? Before this announcement, I would have guessed 18. Now, I would guess 16 or 17. Does anybody know the answer to this?
