As you're probably aware Jana Duggar is still single.
The general assumption is that Jana is too picky, or that she's simply struggled to find Mr. Right.
But what if there's more to the situation than meets the eye?
What if there are reasons for Jana to stay on the compound that go beyond her feelings of obligation toward her younger siblings (whom she currently homeschools)?
No, we're not talking about the possibility that Jana is in love with Laura Demasie.
We're talking about the popular theory that Jana was chosen to remain at home and help around the compound.
It's been a popular topic of conversation in Duggar message boards for quite some time.
The most common hypothesis is that Jana demonstrated a talent for child rearing.
Thus, her parents decided it was more important for her to assist in raising her younger siblings than to have children of her own.
But what if there's another explanation?
What if Jim Bob and Michelle selected Jana simply because she's their favorite, and they wanted to keep her around?
You see, in addition to her skills with young people, Jana has many other talents and a gift for taking charge of large projects.
This week, for example, Jana spearheaded an initiative to completely redecorate Jim Bob and Michelle's bedroom while the couple was out of town.
While it's true that her siblings participated in the project as well, the whole thing was reportedly Jana's brainchild.
“We surprised my parents while they were away and remodeled their room for them,” Jana captioned an Instagram post about the project.
“This is the reveal and them seeing it for the first time!”
Jana went on to sing her parents' praises, writing:
“Sometimes you have to find ways to give back to those that have given so much to you!
“We love and appreciate you so much Mom & Dad! ”
“Oh wow! I can’t believe it,” Jim Bob exclaimed in a video posted by Jana.
“I can’t believe it, mama. This is like paradise!”
“That is stunning!” said Michelle. “This is too beautiful to be true.”
Jana added that she installed a bench because her parents counsel others so often.
(So now they're gonna counsel people in their bedroom? Weird.)
Now, it's possible that one of Jana's siblings would have taken charge of such a project if she hadn't.
But Jana has a long history of going the extra mile in unexpected ways.
She's been described as an "indispensable" presence around the Duggar home.
And it's possible that her parents decided they simply can't live without her.
