Everyone is wondering if and when Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald will get engaged and get married. Jessa is a beautiful woman and is looking for a man who puts God first in his life. The Duggar family is well known for their weekly show that airs on The Learning Channel. They are a strong Christian family and they have raised their children with good moral and Biblical values. I have always said that if more families were like this one, this world would be a much better place.
Although there are many fans of the Duggar family, there are also many critics. Many think that some restrictions that they have are a little over done. For example, I heard Michelle Duggar say that Jessa and Ben are not allowed to kiss or hold hands. To many, that is very extreme whether they are Bible believing Christians or not. I do remember Josh and Anna holding hands when they were dating, but I believe they also waited until their wedding day for their first kiss.
Recently, the four oldest Duggar girls wrote a book called Growing up Duggar. In the book they emphasize what they are looking for in a husband. The first thing that they are looking for is if their men have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and that He is number one in his life. Then they look for other important traits like being respectful to their women and to others, and how the man treats them and the family. Ben lives a few hours away from Jessa. He owns a business and works at a country club. He is a true follower of Christ and is a man of great integrity. Jim Bob, Jessa’s father, approves of him greatly.
We may have to wait until the next season to find out how soon these two will get married. In the mean time, we can continue to enjoy the adventures of this family. I really admire them greatly. Jim Bob and Michelle have raised their kids to be respectful and to be good citizens. They are great role models of how each family should be living.
