“It will also come in handy when they start working on a family of their own,” the insider notes. “Of course, there’s one major rule — they can’t spend the night or move into the home until they’re married.”
Jim Bob, 55, — who shares 19 children with wife Michelle Duggar, 54, — has “sold homes to his kids from $10 to $5,000 to $50,00, depending on the location and square footage,” the insider continues. “It’s kind of his thing.”
Though the Counting On stars’ kiddos “are self-sufficient and hard-working,” the parents are “all about giving them a step up to help their marriages succeed. They know marriage can be hard work, but they both truly believe that a happy home makes a happy family.”
Justin, 18, proposed to Claire, 19, in November 2020 while celebrating his birthday in Texas. After facing online criticism for their young age, Claire praised her soon-to-be husband’s work ethic.
“Justin paid for the ring!” she confirmed in an Instagram comment amid speculation. “Not a dime of it was someone else’s money,” she said in reference to her diamond sparkler. “He is super motivated and does well at his job. He’s been graduated for quite a while and has a full-time job. He also worked part-time while in school, so he’d be prepared to be on his own.”
Following news of their engagement, Justin’s brother-in-law Derek Dillard, who is married to Jill Dillard (née Duggar), took to the comments to congratulate the couple but also had the perfect response to a fan who asked why they are in a “rush” to walk down the aisle.
“Because we want to have sex,” Derek bluntly replied.
Although we don’t know the exact date Justin and Claire will say, “I do,” his soon-to-be mother-in-law, Hilary Spivey, revealed it will take place in 2021. Based on the information above, it sounds like it’ll be sooner than later!
