Duggar Courtship Rumor

 Jonathan Hartono, Jedidiah Duggar, and Jeremiah Duggar
2014

A rumor that Jana Duggar is in a courtship with Jonathan Hartono, a foreign exchange student from Indonesia who has been close friends with the Duggars since he and his sister Jennifer met Jana and John-David on a mission trip seven years ago, has been circulating the tabloids.

Many of our readers have been asking if the rumor is true, so we wanted to inform you that it is not. Jonathan has confirmed that he is still single and not in a relationship.

  1. Poor Jana... it can't exactly be enjoyable for people to continually assume you're courting any guy who comes within a ten mile radius of you. :(

    1. I couldn't agree more!!!! I often time wonder what will her future husband think of all this nonsense! In my opinion, all these constant rumors about who she's in a relationship with makes everything sound NOT modest. It's not directly her fault but still.

    2. Exactly, she has said that she isn't going to court the first man that comes along. She's waiting for the right guy. Who knows, maybe she is courting him but we'll just have to wait and see if they announce anything. But also, look how far apart Jill and Derick was for a while during their courtship.... ;)

  2. Glad that lily and Ellie have been able to post the truth so that both Jonathon and Jana can get back to their own lives. Remember Jana said she wanted a man who wasn't in an office. who was hands on. Jonathon is a CEO of a business. And although Jonathon and his sister Jennifer ? are very good friends with Jana and JD Jonathon's work goals are quite different than what Jana wishes for in a husband. I am sure they were both amused at the viewers interest in them as a couple.

    1. Absolutely true! Very well stated by the way! πŸ˜‰

    2. Why is it so difficult to write someones name right? It's Jonathan and not Jonathon!

    3. Oh, Jessica. If we're going to correct other people's posts, then you should have put an apostrophe between "someone" and the "s" at the end of the word.
      :)

    4. Jessica Jonkman, maybe because some people do spell it Jonathon. In fact, I know one personally. But You do get points for getting "it's" right.

    5. Her worth should not be defined by whether she has a man or not. Fly free Jana and enjoy your life on your own terms!

  3. Sad Jana hasn't found a nice young man to share her life with while many of her younger siblings have. But 2017 is still young! Best of luck finding your prince charming Jana!

  4. I still think Tim Tebow would be the perfect husband for the beautiful, inside and out, Jana Duggar!

    2. They at least need to meet if they haven't already

      Delete
    3. You need to stop with the ridiculous rumors and stop playing spouse matcher! This tebow thing ALL started because of speculation like Jonathan. Just let God do his job

      Delete
    4. i agree theyd make a great couple at least jana could meet tim to see if it would work out someone needs to introduce them

      Delete
    5. Jana and Tebow would be a perfect fit! My husband graduated from the University of Fl (where Tebow played) and we saw every game he played as a college player. We also saw him around town - he is a genuine true Christian example. He is also a farm boy - grew up on a farm here in Florida. He knows how to work with his hands which is something Jana said she wants. I have said for years they would be a great couple. I think we fans care more about Jana's love life than she does..lol. I think she has left it in God's hands and is quite content.

    6. I'm sure Tim Tebow is sick of all the rumors himself!

    7. Yeah, yeah... we're all sick of the rumors. But you have to admit it would be a good match.

      Delete
  5. An unlikely couple for many reasons.

    1. They would make a cute couple, what's the problem? o_O
      Jill and Derick was far apart when they was courting.

      Delete
    2. Why do you say that? We don't know neither of them personally to make such a call.

      Delete
    3. Think of the hometown distances, for starters.

      Delete
  6. I think these rumors are going to continue until Jana either announces a courtship/engagement, or she moves out.

    People want to see her doing something just for herself, and not for others/her family, for once.

    1. I was looking for the "like" button.

    2. 10:11, "People want...."? It doesn't matter what they want,it's what Jana wants and PLEASE don't pretend you know what that is! Can't you just get it, she is her own person not the viewers puppet.

      Delete
    3. @11:14 perfectly well said! So sick of people choosing different people for Jana. It's actually quite disgusting

      Delete
    4. @11:14, um, please reread what I wrote. I was not stating what I want, but my thoughts on why these rumors happen (this is not the first time rumors about Jana courting someone have come up).

      Delete
    5. I hate when people make it sound like Jana doesn't have no choices. The only way people will know that if they knew her personally. It sounds to me like she makes her own decisions and chooses the life she wants to live. She helps out with her family because that's what older siblings do - take it from someone who is the oldest of five siblings. She even said herself that she isn't going to court the first man that comes along.

      Delete
    6. I agree! This Isn't early 20th century, so we aren't referring to her as if being single is Wrong... Jana is exercising her dtandards.. πŸ’“πŸ’“

  7. So I just saw something involving a different Duggar family member who is now married. Is Jinger Vuolo really pregnant?! I saw this on BuyBuyBaby and due date says Dec 16 2017 stating its a girl! BUT all info taken down though since it was first posted. I imagine they can't have it revealed before it is announced on the show.

    1. Some scammer made that post. If she would be due in December, she would only be about two months, too soon to know sex of baby. People are so gullible.

      Delete
    2. Don't believe everything you read

      Delete
    3. If that was the due date there would be no way to know it's a girl she'd only be 2 months along

      Delete
    4. They could have simply posted a different due date for whatever reason.

      Delete
    5. Actually they can tell the baby's gender from a blood test at a much earlier time than seeing in an ultrasound. My daughter found out that way at 3 months that she was having a boy.

      Delete
  8. Why is it that we take his word for it, instead of hers? Can't Jana confirm for herself about her own life?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe they wasn't able to talk to her for whatever reason? o_O

      Either way, it confirms that they aren't dating.

      Delete
    2. I guarantee you are going to say it sexiest. I am a woman and I don't find nothing wrong with this. It doesn't matter who they interviewed, the result would be the same.

      Delete
    3. (I am the OP) - It just seems like a roundabout way to get information. Especially considering the blog writers are friends of the Duggars. Fans don't come here to find out if a family friend's personal life. They want to know about Jana and the rest of her family. *shrug*

  9. I believe the most common reason posters sign 'anonymous' is for security reasons over the internet. That's why I remain 'anonymous'..not from fear of speaking my opinions to others' faces'.

    1. Agreed -- who wants their name on the internet? If my name were required, I'd either use a false name or just not comment.

      Delete
    2. Exactly, anons 12:05 & 2:27.

      Delete
    3. I use Anonymous because I don't have any of those accounts listed in the reply box, nor do I want to sign up for them. I could add a name to my comments, but what does that matter? Jane or Sue or Mary is just as anonymous as Anonymous, but with more typing.

      Delete
    4. also I know my computer if I try to sign my name to the comment it wont go thru but will if I do anonymous, not sure why so I just go with it

  10. I think everyone wants that classic happy ending for Jana. You know "she finds the man of her dreams and lives happily ever after". I think Jana is happy and enjoying life. She is living in the present, learning & growing. Everyone's path is different.

  11. Glad that the rumor was put to rest but agree rumors will persist until a courtship is announced , Jana will get her day she is beautiful inside and out

    ReplyDelete
  12. I keep thinking about that last sentence. "Jonathan has confirmed that he is still single and not in a relationship."


    HE's not in a relationship. Does not quell the rumor that Jana could be in a relationship.

  13. I'm shocked a Christian publication fueled that rumor about Jana.
    I just want to be happy for her no matter what.
    Feel bad for her being used to sell rags. She deserves better.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Jane could very well be extremely happy being single. There is more to life than getting married and having babies. She is still young and maybe wants to experience different things that make her happy. Let her be ☺

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes, I would love to hear that Jana was in a courtship, but also one of the boys. It's time for one of them to have something more serious.

  16. Gees people, leave her alone. She will find Mr Right in her own time....or not. Its her life. Let Her live it her way. Sharon frm SC

  17. Poor Jana! She is getting harassed by everyone why she isn't in a relationship. Looks like she doesn't want to yet. That should be just fine. Nobody is bothering her twin brother for not being in a courtship yet.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Leave Jana be! She is doing as she pleases rather than rushing into a courtship. She is seeking God's will for her life and will be faithful and obedient to God, not people. As it should be!

  19. Thank You Lilly and Ellie for clarification on this subject! Took way too long to make this post. Getting out in front of these unkind rumors would be prudent!

    1. Honest question - How is a rumor like this unkind?

  21. Hey Lily and Ellie, are the announcements about Joy wedding also untrue?
    May 20th is the date being published.
    I don't understand how companies can waste time and resources to lie.
    I would assume the family would share despite photos being held...

    1. Just like other Duggar weddings, we will likely find out after the fact. It's a security thing, they don't want fans (well intended or otherwise) showing up. Not sure what companies you are referring to. Tabloids? They make money making guesses like this, that's the only reason they do it.
