Just in time for wedding season, another Duggar announced that he’s getting married! Well, eventually…
Josiah Duggar, 18, announced that he’s courting a young lady named Marjorie Jackson, 17, who happens to be the daughter of his Spanish tutor, Analucia!

For those of you unfamiliar with the Duggar style of dating, “courting” isn’t quite an engagement, but it is dating “with the intention of marriage” — so this is a huge step for the young love birds!
The teen’s older sisters, Jill and Jessa, each courted their respective husbands (Derick Dillard and Ben Seewald) for about a year before getting hitched last year!

“It’s been going very well,” Josiah tells ‘People’ of his romance. “I met Marjorie a few years ago, when I was taking Spanish lessons at her house and I was very impressed with the way she was with her siblings and her love for the Lord.”
He was particularly smitten after the two of them were on the same mission trip to El Salvador last December. He says, “She really caught my eye. That is really where I noticed her.”

Marjorie says she’s long had her eye on Josiah, telling ‘People,’ “I met him at Spanish class a few years back. For me, it was an immediate thing. I have always admired him and his family.”
This comes shortly after Michelle and Jim Bob thanked fans for the support following the birth of their fourth grandchild, Jill’s firstborn son named Israel David Dillard!

The Duggar family patriarch joked, “Yeah, so, four grandkids and counting… Going on 200!”
Hey, with another wedding in the works, that doesn’t sound so far off… Congrats again to Josiah and Marjorie!
