According to OK magazine online, sweet Jana is demanding a car of her own from JB and Michelle. It seems Jana is tired of carpooling with her siblings and tired of having to wait for one of the family SUV's to free up. She wants a car of her own and I say it is high time she gets it!

I thought all the girls get their own cars in exchange for their servitude??

Yes it has been stated several times, usually by the girls' and then TH confirmed and over explained by JB or JChelle.

Boys have to buy their own cars and do the maintenance on them as well, so they can learn to work on their future family's cars as well.

Jana is the most exploitet, disregarded of all Duggarlings. If there's any one I'd wish would find total happiness, it's her. Oh Lord, please send a hero her way, she needs one to take her out of there .

I call BS. The girls, per their book, get a car. The boys have to earn one.

Well, I guess because it was reported by OK magazine you can't really trust the article. Maybe she is pushing for a newer car or a better car, who knows.. I just hope she gets some flashy wheels to cruise Tontitown in and not some grocery getter!

I would call bs on this but the duggars are always "unaware" of anything that does not portray them in a positive light. I mean this is why we have heard the same questions answered again and again over the past 10 years. If this is true Jana deserves the world after all she has raised all of her mothers children and not once has anyone said "thank you Jana". But this is just the part of me that wants Jana and jinger to make a run for it.however if Jana did demand a car where would she be able to go with all of those crazy rules?

After Jana talked about her "special relationship" with the younger girls (to which I turned to my dad and said, "Yeah, she's basically their mother") in last night's episode, I think she deserves the nicest of cars. Mercedes, BMW, Porche. Someone get her something NEW, something that's all hers. Jana Duggar deserves it.

Jana wouldn't "demand" anything - I can't imagine her demanding five minutes peace and quiet, never mind a car. That servant's heart was well and truly blanket-trained into her..... :? :? :?

I have lurked here for months, but I must say the term "grocery getter" is one of the best things I have ever read! Thanks for making me laugh!

She doesn't need a Mercedes, she needs an apartment. Of her own. In another state. Or another country. One that doesn't have a phone...and with an unlisted address.

BE FREE, JANA!!

Oh Jana, get a job and buy your own car like so, so many people!!! But, make sure it is tiny and that no car seats or boosters will fit in it so you don't have to haul around little kids.

1. I doubt Jana would ever demand ANYTHING. Girl is way too humble. OK magazine is a liar.

2. Jana works probably twice or thrice as much as so, so many people. Having a normal job would probably feel like a vacation.

So true! I only have two kids and she probably cares for more than that, so she does more than me for sure. And I've got a loving husband, a car, a home, etc!

Under normal circumstances, I would totally agree.

But in this case, I think her parents do have an obligation to buy her a car, an apartment, or whatever she wants, pay for her tuition at any college she wants to go to, and give her a huge sum for her free labor all throughout her childhood until now.

Also, even if she wanted to, and even if she would be willing to defy their cult rules which say that women shouldn't work outside the home, thanks to her parents "sheltering", Jana probably couldn't just go out and get a job to earn some money. She doesn't have any real education, and would probably have difficulties to deal with the real world on her own. Sure, if she would have some help and a period to adjust herself, I think she could survive well outside the Duggar-bubble and live an independent life, but right now, the only way to make fast money would be to write a tell-all book.

I agree. With the kind of money they're bringing in, the adult kids better be getting a BIG PAYCHECK, with the freedom to spend it how they want. Anything less is robbery. They are cast members. They deserve their cut. Jana especially, because the house would be a circus without her (and previously, Jill)

It's funny, when I think of fundies leaving the fold and trying to make a life on their own I feel like there are two categories. In both categories it is equally hard to go against your family and possibly lose them, but in one, there are the famous ones whose leaving could make them money via books/interviews/tell alls like the Duggars, in the other are the nobodies that no one cares about leaving the fold. The Duggars have options if they leave! They even have less fundie family that might take them in (Michelle's sister, has she ever said she'd welcome a runaway?).

Let's not forget, Jana DOES have a job: she is a reality tv show worker. And yes, that often is very hard work.

I'm not very convinced that you could call what they do "hard work." I don't think we really have to go so far as to pretend that the Duggars are really going out of their way to have TLC fly them around on family vacations or put a camera behind them while they go grocery shopping. If that's hard work, what do you call what us normal people do every day? I've got a pretty great job and I'd say it's pretty safe to assume that I work a lot harder than the Duggars. And I probably have a much less strenuous or taxing job than the average American.

They deserve big money not because they worked hard for TLC, but because the show would be NOTHING without them. THEY are the key component that keeps viewers tuning in. THEIR medical emergencies and awkward childhoods and personal moments were exploited when they were too young to be able to consent. They deserve to be making so much money off this cash cow that they'll all never have to work again. But that is probably not the way the cookie will crumble. I bet they'll be bankrupt by the time Josie's 18.

I don't think the problem here for Jana (or any of the kids) is the money. They truly believe (or at least most of them) all those Gothard rules and nonsense invented by their parents... She's evil, she's wicked, she must smile because anything else is sin, she must help because God wanted her to take care of 10 kids at 25... She would feel like a terrible sinner if she escaped. I just have to wish and pray she finds someone who truly cares for her and whom she will move with to a country far away from the JBoob and MeChelle cult.

I have been skimming the boards for this topic, but can't make one of my own yet. On last nights episode, the interviewed finale, Josh said he had a prediction that someone else is going to enter into a courtship in the upcoming season (not Josiah). He specified Jana or Jinger. Any thoughts or just drumming up attention for the new season?

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?

      Found this when googling Mother of the Bride dresses for Rod thread when Nurie was engaged...
      Now that my baby just got engaged I'm going need a mother of the bride dress myself, what do you think?  I'm going for tasteful and flattering and I think this fits the bill.
