I guess the speculation bus had a massive wreck on this one.

Someone last thread said Jana had marketable skills but forgot to mention concert pianist… doh! Her twin is a pilot maybe they could team up and he could fly her to her concerts.

Revving up the speculation bus- It seems to me that Jana never truly was or is no longer hanging out with SW. It appears she is busy (recent trips to CA, GA and TX), Hogs games, conferences, Dodgers games, Vegas , and is happy with her current lot in life. I genuinely hope that this is all HER choice. Maybe she really is living her best life and her own life choices with friends and happily single.

I hope Jana hears about family friend Sarah Maxwell and decides to move out too. 

Like I have said before, if JB and Steve can pass out homes to their adult sons, and in JB’s case fully support an entire very large family, they can certainly do the same for their adult daughters. The Duggar sons certainly don’t have any more visible jobs than Jana does.

Yeah, that was me. 

I was a young women who spend 9 years of her life in a convent before i became a transient teenager at 15, and eventual a few years later started sorting my life out via Au Pair. - i.e. food and housing.  - I truly had no skills to begin with, and here i am, business owner, home owner, world traveler. 

Jana has skills. They might not be considered desirable skills, or fancy skills, she may not be considered educated - and thanks to her parents she has no formal education to speak of, but that women ain't dumb, she ain't lazy, she has seen things, done things, kept her mouth shut and carried on. 

She was smart enough to not get married and to get inseminated every other 12 month - that is what this is, innit, the boys trying to out breed daddy?

She has taught all of her siblings, raised pretty much all of them - and that includes the boys, she has run her parents household. 

All these are employable skills in many small to medium sized businesses. There are cookiers in the US that make good bank, just sayin. And in the cases of many young women with children these are often needed skills in their communities. Jana could earn money on her own that JB could not tax away from her. With money comes the freedom to move out, buy a house, and maybe go back to school and get a degree. Many single parent highschool drop out have done that in their lifes. And Jana would not even be the single parent. 

I hope that she stays single and childless until the day she meets someone that is not a complete selfish prick and that she could have a life with according to Jana and not JB and Of'JB.

@Sabine all this would be true if your basic assumptions are factual. I actually doubt that Jana has stayed single because that’s what she really wanted. I believe she would have followed the marry young and get pregnant as often as possible if it would have been in the cards for her. She wasn’t smart to delay but instead has made comments that definitely imply she would want that. I also wouldn’t agree she isn’t lazy. There were long years were she couldn’t choose if she wants to do things or not. But she was never THE ONE keeping it all up. She had tons is sisters that had their fair share of work. And now her little sisters can do lots of stuff and she is out and about. She is hardly hustling at home to give her sisters more freedom to explore their interests. Not that so think it’s her job, that’s mostly on their abysmal patents. But she has not been hard working since she had a chance to do so. I get enjoying this freedom. But this would be her chance to do stuff for herself and her future. But to me it seems she is just waiting to get married.

@nelliebelle1197 If you have an allergy to cats you can develop a tolerance to them (which is why you can pet the neighbours cats). I know that I do (though this doesn't really extend to them waving their tails in my face).  Petting is all good though once I have developed the tolerance (though my allergy to cats doesn't involve hives I don't think).

@Alisamer The younger kittens are about 4.5 weeks old now (born 2021-09-02 or 03), personally I'm wondering how long until they outsize the kittens that are a couple of weeks older.

I think she was courting Stephen and I think the courtship ended. I don't think we will ever hear about it from either of them. Which is honestly a mature decision.

@JermajestyDuggar any other predictions about who would be a match? lol

In all seriousness though, I don't think it would be hard for Jana to get a job right now and living costs in her part of the country is pretty low. She and Laura or she and Jason/James could easily rent a place and have normal lives. The problem to me is that they got used to a certain kind of life and have continued engaging as influencer-hopefuls.

Why are you assuming it’s over between her and Stephen? I seem to have missed that in the previous pages.

Thanks! I could've popped on Discord to check but was lazy. I saw someone recently who said the smallest of the younger kittens (Scrawl) is actually the same size as one of the other kittens (Caper) at the same age - and all the others are much bigger! Plus the older ones' mom is tiny. I think they'll all be about the same size in a month or less.

(Also @nelliebelle1197 the guy who runs this full time kitten foster is extremely allergic to cats! He gets shots sometimes and takes allergy meds, and is at a point now where it's usually only newborn kittens that trigger his allergies for the first week or two.)

I'm also curious why the speculation is that it's ended. Weren't they just photographed together in the summer?

I absolutely think that Jana’s biggest obstacle to securing employment is her entitled attitude. JB convinced his offspring that working for a living was both anti -God and anti -family. In addition to withholding education, this notion reinforced? mandated? by JB was a major disservice to those kids. Why was working to support yourself wrong, but working to support JB OK?

It was never on as far as anyone knows and it may not be off. The whole relationship is built on speculation and fake registry pages. It's as much over as it is on - we know absolutely nothing for a fact on Jana/Stephen relationship - zero, zilch, nada.

If JB doesn't want his children working for anyone outside of the family or for him directly, then I think that there's no reason that Jana couldn't help Jason (I think it's him) with his construction business.  She's shown that she knows how to tile kitchens and enjoys DiY.  She seems capable of doing some of the finishing work involved in home construction.  She may also receive rental income for the small commercial property that she owns if those funds don't go directly to JB.  JB owns enough land/homes that he could set her up with a small home and she'd be able to support herself.  She wouldn't be able to travel like she's used to doing but she should be able to pay her own bills.  She could probably also earn money from setting up a shop like Michael Bates and sell baby blankets, etc.  She's definitely profecient at sewing.

I’m not sure WHY she’d want to move out, or get a job-job at this point.
She’s clearly able to travel and go to home decorating shows and visit siblings and go to games and hang out with Laura and has money for a complete wardrobe makeover and fancy hi-lighted hair.

Even if she is still in the shared girls room when she’s home — that room is the size of most apartments, with two baths, and IIRCC , it’s arranged so that the little girls and the older daughters had separate  sections - so now that’s just her. And she has her greenhouse/ studio/ garden space. 

Maybe she’s hoping to eventually get married, but her back-up plan is to outlast every other kid and just take over Duggar enterprises entirely. She could run the Big House as a place for conferences and all things Pinteresty country /christian chic. 
 

Her biggest fear at the moment might be that Anna and her brood move in.

Dog knows It’s not like she has any academic yearning either. She does pretty much as she wishes and has sufficient money to indulge in hobbies and interests as far as we can know so why would she want to leave?

I don't know that she's shown any indication that she wants to move out of the house.  I just think that she would be able to support herself if she did move out.  I definitely agree that she wouldn't be able to travel, have her own greenhouse, etc. if she lived on her own.  So she'd have to be willing to give up those extras and I don't know that she wants to do that.  I would like to see her move out and earn her own money.  I think it could be a really good thing for the younger girls to see.  A woman in their family supporting herself and living on her own.

I think the speculation was founded on at least 4 times that they were seen together over the past 10 months. First at the Wissman family either Thanksgiving or Christmas celebration when they were sitting next to each other. Then at Magnolia after Justin’s wedding where Stephen was standing behind Jana (picture deleted soon after it was posted.) He was at Jed’s wedding (didn’t see other Wissmanns in attendance.) They were seen walking together at some outdoor fair or something. And finally the last sighting was right after Fern’s birth when he was sitting next to Jana at the TTH during lunch. Safe to say something was going on. No sighting since then, 2 months ago, hence the speculation that it’s over.

I agree - she COULD move out and get a job, an apartment, whatever. 

But does she WANT to? She's kind of got it made, there. Daddy funds whatever she wants, she's the oldest child in the house and the littles aren't all that little anymore. Everyone else is likely to get married and move out, and if she is the last one still living in the house when her parents pass, surely none of them are going to force her out, at least not without putting her in one of the other houses in exchange. And since chances are if she stays she'll be the one taking care of JB and Michelle in their old age, she will likely have been already in charge of the household for years by that point.  

I'd like to see her move out, widen her horizons, support herself, etc. But things are pretty cushy for her right now so I can see why she might be perfectly happy right where she is.

IDK, what about self worth and autonomy? How about the natural comparison to her, in many cases, much younger siblings lives? How about her good friend Laura? Is Laura still living at home? I just wonder what drives, motivates and feeds her soul? Is it all Jesus, all the time? My son just turned 31. He works FT and is getting his Master’s degree. He lives not far from us, has a girlfriend, has an active social life and travels (Covid permitting).  Sure social activities are fun, but adults need to work and accomplish and contribute to society too.

For me it’s also the length of time they may have been together without an engagement. Total speculation bus here… I think going to Christmas in Nebraska indicated they were more than getting to know each other at that stage. So for it to be a year later and no public admission of engagement makes me think it’s over. Jana could just be taking it slower or Stephen could. Or they could be super private about it. 

Literally just my speculation.

I think Laura mostly lives with Jana and the Duggar’s . When she doesn’t I think she lives with her parents? Maybe she has her own place. Not sure what she does for a living - maybe makes $$ from the party planning she and Jana do? Was she in charge of bookkeeping, or something for the family? 

Not everyone, or every sub-group, feels like paid work is necessary for a sense of self-worth. She might get her sense of fulfillment or accomplishment or meaning from gardening, or travel, or just sitting and reading a book. 

The woman has put in a good 20 years of unsalaried labor in her family business. No reason she shouldn’t reap the rewards now, if she wants. 
 

I just hope she gets some substantial property in her name, in case things go bad with her parents. It wouldn’t be the 1st time a dutiful daughter did the bulk of the work and then got passed over in the will.

I was thinking more of some internal satisfaction . Perhaps at 31, she could be totally fulfilled, motivated and satisfied through gardening, spending time with friends or grocery shopping for the TTH. Life is short, and hopefully whatever she is doing fills her cup while providing some bit of happiness.
