Duggar fans seemed to have moved on with their obsession over Jim Bob and Michelle having 19 kids and are now focused on the constant family news of courtships, engagements, weddings, and pregnancies of the family’s children.
But there is one Duggar child that has faced a lot of scrutiny because her relationship history and sexual preference appear to be quite different than the rest of her family. Have fans now solved the mystery of oldest daughter Jana Duggar’s love life?
Some fans believe that Jana is gay and think they have found her girlfriend. A Reddit user recently did some investigating and has identified Laura D. – AKA masiespace on Instagram – as the possible woman in Jana’s life.
In her birthday wish to the 28-year-old Duggar daughter, Laura posted a picture of the two of them and wrote, “How much do we love Jana on a scale of zero to spicy chicken wings?? Wings. From Sonic. Jana is our favorite adventurous homebody, the queen of snacks and funny stories, and the kind of sister/friend none of us deserve.”
Both Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald liked the post, so the Duggars obviously know her, and “family friend Laura” inexplicably joined the family on their recent trip to Australia and New Zealand.
Laura’s social media post appeared sincerer than anything fans have ever read about Jana, but if the reality star is gay, the chances of her coming out anytime soon aren’t good.
The family has long been advocates of what they call “traditional family values,” while vocally opposing gay marriage. Even Josh Duggar, before his molestation scandal, spoke at a rally as the executive director of the Family Research Council and said that marriage is essential to the American family and every child deserves a mother and father.
Of course, he said all of this after molesting five girls as a teenager – including four of his sisters – and cheating on his wife with online accounts on sites like Ashley Madison.
It’s difficult for many fans of the Duggar family to wrap their head around the fact that Jana is 28 and still single, especially since all her younger sisters over the age of 18 have gotten married and had kids. According to their family traditions, Jana should have a husband and at least a couple of children by now.
But, the Cinderella Duggar continues to live the single life, and many believe that she is simply waiting around for the right guy, while others think that Jim Bob is keeping his daughter’s love life on the down low as part of a future ratings stunt.
Whatever the reason is that Jana has yet to court a man, she continues to break tradition and do things her own way, and for that reason alone, fans should applaud.
