Shortly after the announcement that Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are courting, the couple took another big step together.
Yes, Jinger and Jeremy are engaged, and Counting On Season 2 (which premieres on August 23) will focus on their wedding.
Even if they don't make it to the altar this season, a major storyline will be the planning process of the two fast-moving lovebirds.
As fans of the family's reality shows can attest, Duggar relationships always move quickly, but Jinge and Jer are taking it to a new level.
Seriously, they seem intent on setting some sort of record.
Why are they speeding past the usual relationship milestones at such a breakneck rate?
Well, perhaps not surprisingly, fans are speculating that Jinger and Jeremy have a little extra motivation to walk down the aisle ...
... and it's only getting bigger by the day, if you follow!
The rumors regarding Jeremy and Jinger first originated with a blind item from the site Crazy Days and Nights, which read:
"This one of a million kids is apparently pregnant. That will definitely not make into the program. Better have them elope quickly."
We know, there's not a lot of information to go on there, but ... it's hard not to think of the Duggars when you read "one of a million kids."
Fueling the fire is Jinger and Jeremy's public behavior.
Jinger has always been a "rebel" by Duggar standards, and from the onset, the couple has broken Duggar courtship rules on multiple occasions.
The couple's surprising penchant for flaunting their affection so openly has many wondering if they haven't taken things to the next level.
If nothing else, a step beyond the usual hand-holding and side-hugs that are the Duggars' much-discussed courting customs.
Are we reading into this a little?
Absolutely, but there's no denying the fact that as Duggar relationships go, this one has been different from the very beginning.
It's not just the fact that they're flouting the extremely strict rules that Jinger's parents have enforced for all her other siblings.
The fact that they're doing early, often and in a very public manner has many wondering if the fact that Jinger and Jeremy have been sexually active is something of an open secret in the devoutly religious family.
After all, Jeremy Vuolo is 28 - six years Jinger's senior and significantly older than the other men who recently married into the family.
He's also from a city in the Northeast, nor their native Arkansas; and he traveled the world for several years a professional soccer player.
While deeply religious now, he's admitted to being something of a wild child in his youth, so perhaps his "experience" is carrying over.
It's very possible that he wasn't as willing as Derick Dillard and Ben Seewald to play by the Duggars' asinine rules (see gallery above)
Just a theory.
Whatever the case, we're half expecting these two to sprint, not walk, down the aisle when we watch Counting On online this summer.
