‘Counting On’: Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Plan on Jana Staying Put

Counting On‘s Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar have many children still at home, including Jana Duggar, who is their oldest daughter. At age 30, most Duggars would already have a spouse and children—but not Jana.

Counting On: Michelle Duggar & Jim Bob Duggar Welcome Children to Stay

It doesn’t seem like Jim Bob Duggar and his wife Michelle Duggar, care how long their children live at home. In fact, they said it makes financial sense to continue living at home. Why pay for rent or a house payment when you could simply keep living in the “boy’s room” or the “girl’s room” in the big house?

The Counting On family is well-known in their area, but not everyone is a fan. Many people think they keep their children at home to serve their own agendas. When Michelle shared information about how they monitor even their adult children’s cell phones, that raised a few eyebrows. And the fact that Michelle said her children wanted them to do made it even odder.

Fans of the TLC show are always asking Jana if she will marry soon. Or even if she has a courtship coming up. But it seems like that isn’t in the cards for Jana Duggar just yet.

Jana Duggar Struggles with Being Single

For the longest time, Counting On star Jana Duggar kept telling people that she was more than happy to live at home. But now she’s opening up to say that sometimes she gets depressed because she isn’t married. And that she would like to have a boyfriend.

In fact, Jana has even relaxed some of her standards for when it comes to finding Mr. Right. Before, she required that he be from Arkansas—or at least be willing to move there. But now she said she realizes how much she likes to travel. And that if she loved a man, she would follow him to the ends of the Earth.

Fans of Counting On wonder how that would sit with her dad Jim Bob and his co-parent Michelle. According to viewers, it looks like they plan on having Jana at home for a long time.

Counting On: Building a Long-Lasting Structure

Nothing says permanence like a long-lasting structure in the backyard. Recently, on Counting On, the family surprised Jana with a greenhouse. She was very excited, but watchers of the show couldn’t help but notice that this meant they planned on Jana staying there. Otherwise, they wouldn’t erect an expensive structure that only Jana Duggar will use.

Whatever the case, it seems like Jana is excited about her new greenhouse. But she isn’t too excited about the thought of being single. Fans hope she’ll find what she’s looking for—maybe outside of the greenhouse.
