‘Counting On’: Jana Duggar Lowered Her Standards for a Future Husband — ‘I Used to Be a Little More Strict’


Counting On fans can’t stop speculating on Jana Duggar’s dating life. As the oldest Duggar daughter, most followers didn’t expect Jana to stay single into her 30s. The women in the family usually get married young after short, parent-approved courtships.

Since Jana isn’t married yet, it leads fans to question why. Is she incredibly picky? Is she just patient? Is she being held captive by her parents, who need help raising the younger kids? Recently, the 30-year-old has been vocalizing her reasons for remaining unmarried and living at home.

In one statement, Jana even said she’s resigned to lowering her standards for picking a potential mate.

While most American adults choose their spouses after dating many potential partners, the Duggars take a different approach. The strict fundamentalist Christian family avoids dating and instead meets potential life partners via courtships.

“The main difference between courting and dating is setting boundaries for yourself so that you don’t cross over those,” Jill Dillard explained on 19 Kids & Counting in 2014. If a gentleman was interested in pursuing marriage with Jana, he’d need to speak with family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar first.

“If a man pursuing a girl’s heart, definitely the guy needs to talk to the girl’s father,” Jessa Duggar explained during a video. “So for us, guys would approach our dad and talk to him about that, kind of make their interest known.”
