Duggar family rules on dating dating colonial buttons
Rumors about Jana Duggar being courted by a family friend are being put to rest by Jonathan Hartono, the man being linked to the "Counting On" star.
Hartono is denying that a recent bowling trip with Jim Bob Duggar, the patriarch whose family was introduced to the world on TLC Network's "19 Kids and Counting," was a sign that he was dating Jana.
For most people, 27 is still a great time to be single.
Jonathan has confirmed that he is still single and not in a relationship."While the world seems to be speculating about Jana's dating life, she previously spoke about the struggles of being single on her show "Counting On.""There have been different guys who have come along and asked, but they haven't been, I don't know, the right one," she said on her show.
"They say it, and all the boys look straight down to the floor every time," said the source. Things like that blow my mind." (Photo Credit: Instagram) After Josiah Duggar and his ex, Marjorie Jackson, called off their courtship, fans started talking.
After all, in the Duggar world, courting isn't just dating — it's courting someone you think you'd like to marry. So while breaking off a courtship isn't as serious as divorce, it's still pretty unheard of in this circle. We were just trying to follow God's lead on everything," Josiah explained at the time.
"[His] favorite word is ‘no,'" said a source close to the family. Always has and always will." The boys in their family are even trained to respond to some one-word commands — like the word, "Nike." In , a book by Jana, Jill, Jessa Duggar, and Jinger, the girls explained that Nike means that guys need to immediately look down to avoid seeing something — or someone — that might stir their lusty impulses.
When someone says Nike, all the boys in the family know to immediately drop their gaze until they've walked past.
