If you watch Counting On online, you know that yet another Duggar wedding is in the offing.
And this time, in a change of pace, it’s one of the Duggar men who will be taking the leap from side-hugs to compulsory procreation.
Yes, Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell got engaged during the most recent season premiere of his family’s reality series, Counting On.
The Duggar wedding schedule is getting so packed these days that the nuptials are beginning to overlap.
Joseph popped the question during Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth’s wedding.
Usually, that’s considered something of a jerk move, stealing the thunder from the couple who’s getting hitched, and alll.
But Joy-Anna and Austin were totally on board with the move, and they helped Joseph plan his proposal with the obsessive, borderline psychotic meticulousness one would expect from a family of people who believe God actually cares if women wear pants instead of skirts.
Anyway, Kendra said yes, and soon she’ll be the proud recipient of the Duggar last name and the complimentary lobotomy that comes wth it.
(We kid, Duggar gals!)
And when exactly will Joseph and Kendra be getting hitched?
Well, it seems they’re trying to keep that detail under wraps, but in 2017, there are no secrets.
Fans have already unearthed an Amazon wedding registry attributed to Joe and Kendra that reveals the couple’s wedding date as … October 7, 2017.
Yes, that’s a mighty short engagement even by Duggar standards, but Kendra did say she wants to get married in the fall, so the story checks out.
And there are several reasons that Joe and Kendra might be in a rush to get to the altar.
Last week, The Hollywood Gossip reported exclusively that Kendra courted Jedidiah Duggar before she became romantically involved with Joe.
It’s an odd story that threatens to peel back the layers of wholesomeness that serve as the Duggars’ protective coating and reveal the cultish weirdness beneath,
One hopes that the decision was Kendra’s and that she wasn’t forced to switch her affections to Joe simple because he’s the older brother.
In any case, it’s an odd situation that the family is no doubt eager to put behind them.
Watch Counting On online to remind yourself of just how unsusual this family truly is.
