  1. A few discussions in other threads have sparked some questions for me (and if it seems like this discussion is too tightly linked to another thread, feel free to merge). What is the deal with Jana and John David? This first set of twins appear to be some of the quietest in the family, and obviously their love lives (or lack thereof) have been the topic of much discussion. What are your theories? Personally, I'm leaning toward a combination of naturally shy personalities mixed with early and ferocious "training" in the way of Gothard. With their advancing age (by fundie standards), they are already naturally limiting the size of their families, without having to indulge in "sinful" birth control. I suspect this is due to the extreme conditions of their childhood. Michelle's three course rice meals may have sounded funny to some, but I bet her children were anxious and food insecure (see also: Josh's ever-increasing waistline). Jana sticking around the TTH has the added benefit of ensuring that some younger siblings are still cared for, despite Michelle's lunacy. Gotta be honest, though -- the longer she waits around, the more frightened I'd imagine she'd be of her wedding night. Zero to sixty (sexty?) is quite the accelerated learning curve -- I'd be terrified if it were me, to be honest. John-David can also ensure that his siblings are doing at least okay, if not well. [Don't know the details, but wasn't there also a hard working Bates son who served as a kind of lending center for his siblings? Could be wrong, but JD strikes me as a similar sturdy, reliable figure, if not the most mature amongst men.] I'd really love to hear your favorite theories about the twins.
  2. It's been out, what around a year? As authors, the profits "should have" been divided by 4. (Who knows if they actually were, or if Boob kept it all.) Now that 2 girls are married, they should have been given their share. I don't know anything about publishing and what it takes for a book to be profitable.

    Duggar Matchmaker

    Hi y'all, Longtime reader, new poster. If you were to play matchmaker, what are some of your favorite potential courtships? I want to see: Jana and Tim Tebow Jinger and Skylar Weiss Joy Anna and Lawson Bates Or, Jana with Skylar and Jinger with Lawson, but ... I just really want Jana with Tim, even if unrealistic (or is it!?). I think she deserves to "win" the "best" husband. Besides, the ages work better this way, since I'm pretty sure Skylar is only 23ish. Plus, I think Joy Anna and Lawson would actually be a super cute match. John David is a stumper for me. I'd love to see Jana, Jinger, and Joy Anna married soon, for their sake, and to see what the family dynamics would be like re: Michelle managing. With Joseph at college, Josiah likely getting married, and John David essentially doing his own thing, it'd leave her with 6 teenage/pre-teen boys and 4 girls/little girls. Still quite the handful, especially when juggling relationships with adult children and grandchildren.

    Jana with Tim Tebow?

    Apparently Jim Bob is trying to set Jana up with Tim Tebow via Tebow's mother. I'm not sure how true this is but I have mixed feelings about this. http://jezebel.com/the-duggars-are-tryi ... 1663485260 http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2014/ ... mlinks.com
  5. Just curious--has Jana performed publicly as a so-called "concert pianist'? Even at a church?? Our will her supposed debut as a professional be on this season's show? EDITED to add this: I assume she attended this program when we were wondering where she was? http://ati.iblp.org/ati/students/opportunities/music/
  6. Have you seen Ruth Dunley's youtube video entitled Growing Up Duggar? It's a hangout with Jana, Jill, Jessa and Jinger to answer fan questions and promote their book. Jill and Jessa dominate the conversation of course. At the 14:54 mark, Jessa was supposed to be answering a question about going to college, but steers the conversation to boast about being a missionary and doing the work of Jesus. Then Jill interrupts with "yeahhh, not go out there and just be Career Women." (Followed by a sourpuss face.) I really think they've been brainwashed into thinking that learning a profession or trade and becoming self sufficient precludes being able to "help" others, (although I think proselytizing is offensive and not helpful.) Like having a job is selfish because you are earning money for yourself and every moment should be about others or Jesus. I mean do they really think that missionary work can support their family? Delusional.
  7. Is there any truth behind the article I read that Jana was forced to attend Weight Watchers?
  8. I was certain that I had seen exactly the opposite of what many had been stating- that Jill wanted to be a midwife and had dragged an uninterested Jana along as a chaperone. Actually Jana expressed an interest in midwifery before Jill ever did! Jill is at 4:55 and Jana at 5:03.
  9. Zach Bates is supposed to have asked to court Jana prior to meeting his wife, Whitney. I'm guessing this was after his first courtship ended. Radar says Jana and Zach went on some chaperoned outings and he asked JB for permission to court Jana. Jana, however, was not interested in Zach and told her father no. Zach must have met Whitney soon after this. Jana still has not found a man who interests her. I keep wondering if she actually does want to marry, or if she really is fine with staying single. Remaining single means her days of rearing children are numbered. Josie is five now, so in another few years Jana will be done. I recall JB and Michelle saying that by age 12 their children should be "finished" and able to act responsibly on their own. Of course, that still doesn't mean any of the children are ever treated as adults, no matter their ages, but by 12 the work of instilling values in the children should be done.
  10. Starcasm today had an article about the Duggars and noted that Jana apparently went along on Josh and Anna's road trip but appeared to be edited out, with Josh noting that it was his and Anna's first trip on their own. Does anyone know anything about this? " In tonight’s show, Josh Duggar continues his family road-trip as questions come up about whether Anna Duggar is pregnant. The actual purpose of the trip is to attend Anna’s sister Priscilla Waller’s gender reveal party. Spoiler alert: It’s a girl! Priscilla and husband David Waller welcomed baby Davia Lynn Waller on Nov. 12. They are also parents to 20-month-old Paul.Interestingly, Jana Duggar went along for the road trip, but was edited out of last week’s episode… Josh even made a big deal about it being his family’s first cross-country trip on their own." http://starcasm.net/archives/296475 Some of the comments seem to be speculation that Jana might have had an indiscretion with a boy and that's why she's not courting etc. I don't think so, but who knows? The article also talks about the Duggars visiting College of the Ozarks near Branson, Missouri. I quote: “Every student gets work experience as part of their education and they even have their own dairy farm, bakery and restaurant,†they said on Facebook. The kids even got to learn about weaving and dairy-farming. (Wouldn’t it be great if Jim Bob and Michelle were so impressed they actually allow a few of their kids to go there?)" One can only hope! I find it strange that the Duggars won't even consider a Christian college? Even the Bates allowed some of their kids to attend one for music. Does anyone know why the Duggars are so against higher education?
  11. Don't know if it's posted yet, but just read that today is Jana and John David 25th birthday. Wonder how they're celebrating.
  12. I was thinking about the Christmas video and Jana being in the mail center. Since we all know the Duggar's address, what's preventing people from sending articles and books to them? Perhaps sending some good literature to the children to read. Does Michelle go through all the mail and makes that call? If a younger Duggar gets a fan letter or gift, are the letters read before they are given to the child?
  13. I have a question. Why do some of you insist that the adults (specifically Jana Duggar and Sarah Maxwell) NEED to be rescued by men in order to be happy? Whether most want to accept it or not, Jana Duggar (24 years old) and Sarah Maxwell(30 something) ARE adult women living in America. Jana Duggar,24, is far less isolated than Sarah Maxwell and Jana has regular contact with Amy. If Jana was so unhappy and really wanted to leave, she would. It also is bothersome that some people here insist that these adult women NEED to be rescued by men marrying them. I think it is very ironic that FreeJinger is against what some, claim are backward ideals of the Duggars that pose a threat to feminism yet insist that the only way these adult women can escape is by having men marry them. Isn't that the same backwards thinking that some of you are so against? Look at Jana Duggar. Some of you insist the only way that she can leave is by having a man marry her. This has gone to the extent of people starting a huge false rumor, "Tim Tebow and Jana are courting! Now she will finally be able to escape!" http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-new ... ys-2014612 . These rumors are harmful to Jana and I wish they would stop.
  14. So I just saw on the duggar/bates confession tumblr that someone had a mutual friend who knew the director/producer and he said that dimbulb and J'chelle are paying one of the older girls to stay on the show because they don't want to be a part of it anymore. I'm pretty cynical by nature but this did catch my eye. It makes sense regarding Janas lack of appearance in the road trip if she doesn't want to be part of the show, just seeing Her friend for her baby shower and her niece/nephews Thoughts?
  15. http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/1070681 ... ated-below About Jana, he claims, "There have been a lot of guys who have been interested in her, I have gone to hear about each one, and so far she hasn’t felt that is the way the Lord is leading." To me, this sounds like he hasn't approved of anyone (he's only "gone to hear" about them?), and of course Jana won't go for anyone unless Daddy Dearest gives his thumbs up. And for Jinger, "Jinger is just a dynamic girl that a lot of guys have been interested in,†Jim Bob said. “But so far, she has not been interested in the guys." That's interesting. Jana's supposedly saying that she's not feeling led toward any guy, and Jinger isn't interested in the guys. Maybe it's just the way I was raised, by Okies and Arkansans, but "the" in that context could be left out. I know we aren't allowed to speculate, but I'm really curious about why he said she's "not interested" in that way, while Jana doesn't feel led.

    Jana on Facebook?

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jana-Dug ... 1440155267 Real account? Does this mean she's courting? nah.. Its just to stop the backlash..
  17. MoonFace


    Every once in a while you hear (or read) someone say that they hope Jana finds the right guy. Maybe she just isn't ready and/or willing to lead the Fundie life style. If she were to get married she'd be expected to start having her own babies. Could be she just doesn't want that responsibility. Yes, she helps with the other kids - but that is a lot less responsibility than dealing with a household of your own. A friend of mine got her tubes tied at 23 because as the eldest of 6, she was always 'helping'. That option isn't open to Jana.
  18. So we know that Jana was on the Josh and Anna road trip but she wasn't on screen or mentioned. And we know that Josiah was missing from the whole last season. I was just watching the rerun of when the Duggar and Bates older girls go camping and Jill is missing. I don't think they mentioned why - maybe midwife duties? With so many kids I think it would be easy to air episodes when a kid or two is missing. Any other missing Duggar episodes?
  19. http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/1078993 ... ried-soon/ A few thoughts why no mention of Jana being single, is she in a courtship or have we forgotten she exists? Also what would be on a marriage application anyway especially to a Duggar?
  20. Which Duggar daughter are you? Take the quiz to find out! http://ow.ly/Eai3y
  21. This article is similar to many that have been posted recently. Here it is just in case any of you want to read it! http://www.enstarz.com/articles/50747/2 ... -video.htm
  22. http://www.mikarose.com/index.php?main_ ... cts_id=145 $44.99, glad jana didnt have to sew!
  23. Folks, I just finished watching the episode in which Jana is talked into doing the alterations on Jill's bridesmaid dresses and the ties. Are these people ever ashamed of anything? I doubt it. They're munching on petit fours, drinking tea and smiling venomously into the camera while Cinderella Jana is working her butt off and everybody acts as if this was all natural and a matter of course. I seriously can NOT believe it. It seems like the only genuine appreciation and approval came from Anna and it looked as if she just couldn't believe they had loaded all that work onto her, either. I'm pretty sure all that exploitation and taking advantage of Jana's workforce somehow categorizes as abuse and I wonder if there's a special term for it?
  24. http://www.ibtimes.com/jana-duggars-feu ... ng-1711400 I feel so bad for Jana.
