Now, the forthcoming nuptials have become an unlikely source of controversy, as most things tend to do with the family.

Surprisingly, though, the scandal in question has nothing to do with the fact that Joy-Anna is only 19 years old.

That said, Joy-Anna's age does apparently play a role in all of this.

Allow us to explain:

Several Duggar-related social media sites reported yesterday that Joy-Anna and Austin will be getting hitched on October 28, 2017, which would be Joy-Anna's 20th birthday.

A flood of congratulations began to pour in from all corners of the web.

Some asked for invites, others wondered why Austin and Joy-Anna were signing on for such a long engagement.

(3-4 months is the norm in Duggar Land.)

The problem is, the sites spreading the news are operated by fans, and no official Duggar outlet has confirmed the date yet.

That said, no one in the family has denied that the rumors of the wedding taking place then are true, either.

The situation has prompted many to speculate that Austin and Joy-Anna have yet to pick a date. 

That, in turn, has sparked rumors that they're taking their time due to Joy-Anna's youth.

Whether they're revealed publicly or not, Duggar nuptial dates are usually set within a few days of the engagement.

(After all, there's no reason in wasting precious baby-makin' time once the whole courtship period is over with.)

The delay by Joy-Anna and Austin has many wondering if the couple decided to slow things down in order to avoid another Josiah Duggar-Marjorie Jackson situation.

Josiah and Marjorie called it quits after several weeks of courting - so fast that you might have forgotten they were even together.

The breakup was followed by rumors of mistreatment of Marjorie from the Duggars and a tell-all memoir from Jackson.

Granted, Josiah and Marjorie never made it to the engagement stage, but it's not hard to see how the situation might have left the family a bit shell-shocked.

Of course, the more likely explanation is that Joy-Anna and Austin are simply holding off on releasing any information until the time is right.

In other words, they're saving all the big reveals a very special segment or segments on the upcoming season of Counting On.

After all, what's the point of courting, getting engaged or getting married if you can't score a ratings boost from it?

Exactly. So be sure to watch Counting On online to get caught up in time for Joy-Anna and Austin's big day.

Whenever it is.
