Josiah Duggar and Marjorie Jackson started a courtship that didn’t last for long. This 19 Kids and Counting star is now speaking out months later on what happened between the two of them. When they split, Josiah simply said that it was over with and didn’t share all of what happened between them. People shared the details of what Josiah Duggar said happened with this couple. Fans are used to a courtship ending in marriage, so it was pretty surprising when Josiah and Marjorie called it quits pretty early on. Sometimes a courtship just doesn’t work out though.
Marjorie Jackson and Josiah Duggar were friends first. They were only courting for four months before deciding it wasn’t going to work out. Josiah shared the details this week about what happened.
“Marjorie and I had a good time together. We were just trying to follow God’s lead on everything. She didn’t feel that it was the right timing then, so we called it quits for a bit. We have time to grow… you never know. But when you think about a girl to marry, you ask what kind of guy she would want to marry and you try to be that kind of guy.”
Josiah Duggar saying that they have time to grow makes it sound like he hasn’t given up hope just yet. Josiah and Marjorie could end up back together at some point. Right now, Josiah Duggar hasn’t shared that he is courting anyone new. Josiah met her when he was taking Spanish lessons from her mom, and the two seemed to really hit it off.
There was some talk a while back that Josiah Duggar and Marjorie Jackson might be rekindling their romance. Derick Dillard posted some photos of an event that the family had, and in it you can see Marjorie. There is really no reason for her to be there if she isn’t trying to work things out with Josiah. The fans started going a bit crazy in the comments, trying to figure out why Josiah Duggar was there along with Marjorie Jackson. These photos were posted after the two had already shared that their courtship was over.
It is now time for the new show Jill & Jessa: Counting On, which will be all about the older Duggar kids. This series should have a lot about Josiah Duggar on it, and if he is courting again then this will come up again. Jana, Jinger, and Joy Anna were just asked about courting in a new preview for the show. None of the girls seem to want to talk about it and reveal any news, but a courtship would make for a great season of the show. This show will also be all about Jill and Derick and how things are going for them, plus Jessa and Ben with their new son.
There are a lot of the Duggar kids that are old enough to be courting now other than just Josiah. Joy Anna, John David, Jinger, and Jana are all the perfect age and are asked about it in the preview. You just never know who is going to be next.
