I hope Michelle Duggar hasn’t already put away her giant trash bag of special occasion Dixie Moments plates, because she’ll soon have another wedding to get ready for. A little less than two weeks after the latest Duggar daughter officially started her journey as an inevitable baby-making machine, 19-year-old Joy-Anna Duggar announced that she has begun the family pre-marriage tradition of “courting.”
People says that Joy-Anna introduced her future fiancé during the wedding special Counting On: Jinger’s Wedding on Tuesday night. 22-year-old Austin Forsyth asked Joy-Anna to go a-courtin’ on a rock they once hung out on with their friends. I believe that’s also how some lizards choose a mate? Joy-Anna and Austin say they’ve known each other for 15 years, which I guess is kind of cute if you’re the person who likes to picture a 4-year-old and a 7-year-old getting married one day.
Joy-Anna and Austin’s courtship will probably turn into an engagement soon-ish. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar probably have some kind of creepy homemade clock that they set every time one of their spawn get courtin’ that counts down the minutes until their kid can have the ultimate threesome (husband, wife, and the Holy Spirit watching from a chair in the corner) and make the next generation of spawn. The only reason the Duggar daughters get married so fast after courting is because their fiancés can only stand so much of Michelle’s pull-string baby doll voice squeak out the words: “Tick tock, we want more grandchiiiiiildrennnn!”
