Recently, we learned that Jessa Duggar, the 20-year-old daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, has a new man in her life, Ben Seewald. And while her parents may be keeping a close eye on on the budding relationship, Jessa’s new beau has definitely gotten the 19 Kids and Counting patriarch’s stamp of approval!
With the Duggars, everything usually involves the entire family, and daughter Jessa’s new relationship is no exception. In fact, instead of the usual dating scene, Jessa Duggar is involved a courtship, which her parents describe as a couple who is deciding whether or not marriage is right for them, with the support of both families. With that in mind, you can bet your bottom dollar that Ben Seewald, the 18-year-old who is trying to win over Jessa’s heart, has gotten patriarch Jim Bob’s stamp of approval.
“When a guy is pursuing your daughter, you want to check him out and see if there are any red flags. With Ben, there hasn’t been. He is very sharp. It appears like a match made in heaven,” Jim Bob Duggar told People Magazine recently. Jim Bob also revealed another reason he and his wife Michelle like the young man so much, as he explained: “He’s the first one she has shown interest in that has a spiritual focus and legitimate calling about ministry work.”
But while the family seems to like Ben Seewald, they also believe that the couple should not even engage in a kiss until marriage. Will these two end up getting married? We can’t be sure, but one thing is certain: Jim Bob and Michelle will be keeping a close eye on things.
Jessa Duggar’s journey to find love will also be documented for the popular TLC show!
