Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald opted against having traditional bachelor and bachelorette parties full of strippers, alcohol, and penis-shaped party favors. Instead, the 19 Kids and Counting stars came together for some good, clean fun.
According to People, 19 Kids and Counting fans will get to see Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald’s pre-wedding celebration during tonight’s episode of the TLC show. The couple decided that it would be fun to get physical before their big day, so they asked their friends and family members to join them for a game of flag football. Sadly, the girls didn’t get to play the game — they were forced to sit on the sidelines, while the guys had a blast out on the field. They probably couldn’t join in because they would risk flashing a few knees and thighs while trying to run around in skirts. It’s also likely that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar didn’t want the girls and guys touching one another.
Jessa Duggar might not get to play flag football, but she does get to organize her family’s massive piles of possessions that cover couches, countertops, and carpets. You can check out the other Duggars talking about Jessa’s organizational skills in the video below, but first you have to watch Jim Bob Duggar “whoop up” on the young ‘uns during the flag football game.
Jessa and Ben Seewald didn’t just choose to have a nontraditional bachelor/bachelorette party — they also surprised their families with their unconventional wedding choices. According to People, the couple opted against kissing at the altar, choosing instead to smooch in private. Because it was their first kiss ever, it’s not surprising that they didn’t want everyone to see it. They also decided to serve ice cream sundaes in lieu of wedding cake, and Jessa walked down the altar in a blush-colored gown, instead of a virginal white frock.
Jessa Duggar and her husband might also build their family in their own unique way. Ben and Jessa have revealed that they’re very interested in adopting a child, but they learned that they’ll likely have to wait two years before beginning the adoption process. It would definitely be unusual for a Duggar to wait that long before expanding her family.
As the Inquistir previously reported, there’s a photo making rounds that has sparked rumors that Jessa is already pregnant with a biological child. However, it appears that the pregnant belly photo is simply a screenshot from an old behind-the-scenes People video. Because Jessa has already bucked a few Duggar family traditions, 19 Kids and Counting fans might have to wait a long time before she and Ben Seewald have any real baby news to share.
