Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald: Already Engaged?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The chemistry between 19 Kids & Counting star Jessa Duggar and her boyfriend, Ben Seewald, got a lot of attention on this week's episode of the TLC show.

While Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard, whose full-frontal hug and courtship rules violation got a lot of media attention, eyes were also on Jessa and Ben.

Specifically: Are they already following in Jill and Derick's footsteps?

The 21-year-old Duggar daughter recently started her own accounts on Twitter and Instagram, listing herself as “Jessa Seewald.” Yes, Seewald.

Does that mean she's already engaged - or even married - to Ben?

Jessa only joined social media so that she could interact with him, apparently, as the sweet duo have done nothing but post cute selfies together.

It’s clear that Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are in love, regardless of relationship status or whether they're saving their first kiss for marriage (they are).

Her use of the Seewald name aside, they're likely not engaged. Yet.

Not because they don't want to be, necessarily. They likely do.

But because Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard (above) set to wed on June 21, and that's right around the corner, it would take the spotlight off of her.

They're likely waiting until after that to announce anything.

Since her older sister is planning to wed soon, we'd imagine Jessa and Ben are holding off on an official engagement so that they don’t overshadow Jill.

Family first.

Just love Derick...but Ben is far too immature for any serious relationship

If they can support their families they should have as many children as they want. The Duggars do that. They were supporting their family long before there was a show on TLC. Fair play to them. I wouldn't want to have a brood like they do but I also can't afford to do it. The bigger problem are those people that have many, many children that they can't afford to support. They rely on our Social Services System to care for their them and the rest of us pay for these children.

Jim Bobbity Fugger...please be very careful about letting your beautiful daughters marry these men so quickly. Your girls are very nieve and seem lovestruck by their very first attention from the opposite sex.They may not actually be making the decision to marry based on a solid relationship coupled with a sound understanding of these men.Remember, dad, you have opened up your family's life for the country to see, and with that, have exposed your daughters to suitors who may see easy targets and smell some of that TLC per episode money. Not to mention your daughter'spersonal nest egg. I address this suggestion mostly toward the missionary working in Nephal who probably watched the show, eyed the inventory of marrying age daughters, then contacted YOU to convientely be prayer partners, then weasled his way toward your daughter.Please be careful...with these girls. Do not let them marry just anyone for the sake of rateings or to get picked up for another TLC season.You got your family into this mess...you fine, Christian pimp daddy. Step up and put a stop to this whirlwind marriage, it reaks of nothing good.

No disrespect, but I really hope that God does not allow them to have any more children. Maybe it made sense in biblical times or even in the recent past when the infant mortality rate was high, but it seems like they are just gluttons trying to prove that God loves them more or something because they can have more children. They seem more like a cult than a conservative Christian family.

Wow a full frontal hug. Well the rest of the family should stone her to death. Huge crime she committed.

I was also raised in a strict Christian family, not a "Sect" like they are, I was a virgin at 21 when I married. We had frontal hugs and lots of kisses. The difference between my family and theirs is we were raised to be upright citizens, not to be a brood mare with so many children that we can walk on out own labia!

Since Michelle cant produce anymore now that Jesse is getting married she can start spitting out babies by the dozen .That way they can keep getting paid by TLC.
