Days after 19 Kids and Counting
star Josiah Duggarrevealed he was in a new relationship
, he and his new girlfriend Marjorie Jackson officially debuted as a couple in their first joint video.
Seventeen-year-old Marjorie enthusiastically opens the video promising “some Duggar inside news” before Josiah pops into frame, officially announcing their “courtship relationship.”
For those not in the know, the pair explained what a “courtship” actually is.
“Courtship is like dating with a purpose,” Marjorie explained. “It’s getting to know each other better in group settings, along with our families and just really asking those tough questions and getting to spend more time together along with family and friends.”
Josiah, 18, even enlists the help of older brother Josh, who is married to Anna Keller and is expecting his fourth child, for courting advice.
When Josiah explains that his courtship with Marjorie has a purpose behind it (it’s not “recreational dating, for fun”), Josh presses his sibling as to why he’s doing this.
“Marjorie!” Josiah answers with a laugh.
"I met Marjorie a few years ago, when I was taking Spanish lessons at her house and I was very impressed with the way she was with her siblings and her love for the Lord," Josiah said. "It's been going very well."
It’s been a busy time for the Duggar family, as they welcomed their latest addition – Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar’s baby boy Israel. Watch the video below!
