More on Joy Duggar's Courtship


Did you see our post late last night? Our recap of Jinger's wedding episode will be a few days late because we don't have access to a computer this week, but we want to make sure you know that Joy-Anna Duggar is in a courtship! His name is Austin, and the two have known each other for 15 years.

Here is an announcement video from Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, as well as one from Joy and Austin:

  4. Very happy for them. I ask this in all sincerity Do they not allow Jan a to be in a courtship? It just seems different. It's just she seems like such a lovely young women I find it difficult to believe she hasn't found someone

    1. I've heard that Jana has just turned down a lot of possibilities, that she's very picky. Which there is nothing wrong with. But I will look forward to when she finds her perfect one!

  19. My parents didn't film a message (with me standing right there) for the world every time I started dating someone, or when I got engaged. Did I miss out on this important message of family love? Should I feel shortchanged??

  23. I'm so excited for Joy. What a blessing to be entering a courtship with someone she's pretty much known her whole life, and Jim Bob and Michael are really happy for her. Can't wait to watch them tie the knot.

  24. If I were in the shoes of these young people "courting", I'd be very hesitant to announce it to the world. It's not an engagement or even necessarily a commitment to anything long term. Making such a formal announcement just seems like there's potential for a very awkward situation down the road
    if someone has a change of heart. These two are still so very young and have their whole lives ahead of them. No need to rush things.

  25. Ohhhh,she is one VERY pleased young woman. It will be interesting to see how things pan out for these two.

  28. God bless to both of these young people - know they will be a dynamic couple for the Lord.
