Fans of the show "19 Kids and Counting" are waiting to find out that Ben Seewald and Jessa Duggar are engaged. Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are already engaged and getting married on June 21, but Ben and Jessa actually started dating first. On Thursday, Christian Today shared that Ben and Jessa are still just courting and are not engaged yet.

It only took Derick Dillard six months to propose to Jill. Of course she said yes and then they had a pretty short engagement while planning the wedding. They started dating after Ben and Jessa did but will be tying the knot before he even proposes to her. This has everyone wondering why Ben has not popped the question yet.

On the show, it is very obvious that Ben and Jessa have great chemistry. She spends time with his sisters and even wanted to learn his favorite meals. They are getting along very well, but for some reason he hasn't proposed yet. During the last episode, she explained to him that of course the engagement comes before the wedding. He did seem a tiny bit confused but you could tell he really knew how it all works. They make it seem like marriage is being talked about between them.

Jessa did just change her name on social media. It is now Jessa Seewald. That doesn't really mean anything though and it could just simply mean that she is hoping. Jill has already changed her name to Jill Dillard on her social networks as well.

Hollywood Life confirmed this week that Ben and Jessa are still just courting. There are rumors going around that it could be more, but a source close to the Duggar family shared that they are simply just courting. This means no hand holding, front hugging or kissing for now. They won't even kiss each other until their big wedding day.
