For all the talk about Jana Duggar's love life (or lack thereof), there's been relatively little speculation about her chronically single brother John-David.
Jana and John-David are the oldest unmarried Duggars, yet JDD has somehow managed to avoid the questions about marriage and kids that have plagued his sister for years - until now:
In the above clip, John-David is finally asked point-blank about his dating (excuse us, "courting") prospects.
His answer is evasive - yet telling.
Questioned about his "future plans" regarding marriage, John-David replied:
"Future plans would be - if the Lord would bring the right one along, and then I'll start a family and hopefully be able to invest in their lives and raise up a generation that will be great people for this society."
Perhaps sensing that John-David was dancing around something, the interviewer pressed the issue, eventually asking flat-out if John-David had met someone:
"I don't have anybody," John-David said after a long pregnant pause. "But I am praying about. Keep watching."
Rumors about John-David courting a "mystery brunette" circulated online back in 2014, but nothing ever came of them, and if there was a relationship, it appears to have fizzled.
The Duggars strict courtship rules don't allow for relationships to go on for longer than a few months unless the couple makes firm plans to marry.
So we believe John-David when he says he's currently single, but the way he says "keep watching" makes us think there's more to his romantic situation than he's letting on.
