This allegedly proved to be an issue for Joy and Austin, and fans speculated that the Joy got pregnant well before her wedding day.
Obviously, that matter was never resolved to the satisfaction of Duggar obsessives, but the topic is essentially closed at this point.
The New Crisis
But Joy is a Duggar, which means there's pretty much always some sort of active controversy in her life. And the latest also involves her relationship with Austin.
The Jim Bob Factor
Jim Bob and Michelle have admitted in the past that they tend to "guide" their siblings toward partners who they believe would make suitable spouses.
Occasionally, these efforts are in vain, and the kids blaze their own trails, such as when Jinger Duggar married Jeremy Vuolo (whom her parents reportedly do not approve of).
Playing It Safe
Perhaps as a result of that "failure," the Duggars didn't take any chances when it came to Joy-Anna.
