The fifth child of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar is involved in a relationship, with her parents’ blessing.
Jessa, one of the daughters on 19 Kids and Counting, has started “courting” her new boyfriend, Ben Seewald.
According to RadarOnline, “courting” involves getting to know someone in a group setting. In the Duggar family, “courting” means refraining from any physical relationship before marriage. Jessa and Ben have decided to not even hold hands in their relationship.
Jim Bob and Michelle are encouraging their daughter and Ben to get to know each other on a deeper, spiritual level. Jim Bob said they both love studying the Bible and have similar interests. They are also gaining advice from other couples.
