Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald: Already Engaged?

by 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.
