@VelociRapture I'm also guessing they had a longer than average 'getting to know you' phase. Partly because it was long distance, but mostly because of how young she is. I would bet that Josiah's return to social media last summer coincided with their 'getting to know you' phase entering a more serious stage. All speculation on my part, though.

A step down because they didn't get a People cover? 

Well. She looks happy anyway . . .

Whoa. That was fast! So, late May/early June wedding and a pregnancy announcement by September? Those teenage brides are starting to be a tradition in the Duggar household. I feel like Jill, Jessa and Jinger got pretty lucky.

Food for thought, but do you think they'll make this an extra short engagement because of the Marjorie SCANDAL?

I'm hoping hoping hoping that Josiah still has a spark and ALERT didn't crush it out of him, and that this courtship and engagement is rushed because of desires that cannot be righteously fulfilled...but after the wedding headship Josiah says "no I don't want a million kids. How about 8? Let's have a honeymoon baby and then NFP." And the sad thing is...that's the DREAM scenario. Don't actually think it will happen.

I think they were already serious when they announced the courtship because of the Marj scandal.

I'm predicting a May wedding. Given their (especially her) age and the limited time they've been together, the rational thing would be to have a longer engagement, and since it's the Duggars, they're going to do whatever's the opposite of rational, so. May wedding. That would be on the same timeline as his other siblings, a little less than three months. I'll guess May 25th, since they seem to like getting married on Fridays.

I feel like Josiah and Lauren could start into the perfect conservative political family role in the few years after marriage.

According to them, they only started courting in early January. But I think they were serious in the 'getting to know you' phase for a while before that. I mean... I sure as hell hope they were, anyway.

I still think they got engaged in Australia.

According to the article they got engaged in the same spot her parents did. Doesn't seem like something they'd lie about.

Alyssa Bates had a long getting to know you phase and a short courtship. Probably because she was young like Lauren. I think that probably happened here too. Courtship was just a quick pre-engagement for these two. They could have skipped it completely.

I don’t think so. If my information on her birthdate is correct, then I would guess they’ll marry after she turns 19 on May 18 - putting them in late May at the very earliest. That’s around the same length of time that JoStin had. I’d bet they’ll be married before the end of August at the absolute latest.

Engagement lengths:

Smuggars - just over 3 months

Dills - about 3 months

Benessa - just under 3 months

JinJer - a bit over 3 months

JoKen - just over 3 months

JoStin - just under 3 months

So counting three months from now gives us June 5. I’d bet they’ll marry sometime between May 25th and June 16th.

Younger. She's currently 18 and Kendra is 19.

Wow, already. It's so strange she's so young! I'm sure they'll be married before June. 

However, what does Josiah do? Work for JB? Where are they going to live after they get married? Build a house next to Joe and Kendra?

I somehow feel really, really bad for her. And I feel like she is gonna end up getting hurt/heartbroken. Don't know why.

Can their official nickname be JoLene?  I know it doesn't really work, but I love that song!

I think it was @SapphireSlytherinwho suggested SiRen. I find that one pretty funny, so that’s the one I’m going with personally. :pb_lol:

Wow, I'm shocked. Who knew that a quick courtship would be followed by a quick engagement? We will have a quick wedding, and then quickly pregnant. And then someone else will be courting-> engaged -> getting married -> pregnant. 

*Sings The Circle of Life at the top of my lungs*

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
