Counting On star Jana Duggar is 30 years old and yet she remains the eldest child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar who is still single. Jana Duggar has had many opportunities to woo and reportedly her father has tried to set her up with some potential suitors. While Jana is still looking for Mr. Right, a former employee of the Duggar family claims to know exactly why she didn’t get married and start a family.
‘Counting On’ Star Jana Chooses Her Own Path
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar teach their children from an early age that procreation is one of life’s greatest goals. For the Duggars, not getting married and starting a family at a young age is similar to disobedience.
Many Counting On fans disagree with this teaching, but most Duggars are in line with their father’s point of view. So far, the only exception seems to be Jana Duggar, who turned 30 this year and has remained single.
There’s nothing wrong with someone waiting until the age of 30 to find a long-term partner, but it’s unusual when it comes to one of the Duggars. In fact, some fans believe that Jana Duggar is actively rebelling against Jim Bob, while others are just fascinated by her situation.
Jana Duggar has had many opportunities to court, she has yet to find a good match. In previous interviews on the show, she admitted she’s waiting for “Mr. Right” to come into her life.
Counting On: Did Derick try to court Jana Duggar?
While fans continue to speculate about what’s going on in Jana’s love life, viewers have recently speculated that Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, once tried to woo her.
Relying on fans, fans claim that Derick Dillard originally wanted to court Jana, but Jim Bob convinced him that Jill Duggar was a better person.
The theory also holds that Derick Dillard quit his job as an accountant after his marriage because he thought that marrying a Duggar would make him rich.
Derick Dillard was kicked out of Counting On a few years ago after making controversial comments about the LGBTQ community on social media. He didn’t comment on the news about Jana.
Jana Duggar did not comment on the former employee’s claims or rumors that Dillard originally wanted to woo her.
