Counting On star Jana Duggar is still single at 28, and while that wouldn’t be a big deal for most people, in Duggar world, it’s such a foreign concept that the family doesn’t know how to handle it. One of the Duggar rules is that a daughter must live at home until she gets married. So, that means that Jana is still living at home with her parents and younger unmarried siblings, and she doesn’t even get her own room.
According to In Touch Weekly, a Reddit user pointed out that Jana shares a room with her four sisters who are all under the age of twelve, and wondered if that bothered anyone. The only unmarried Duggar daughters besides Jana are 12-year-old Johanna, 10-year-old Jennifer, 9-year-old Jordyn Grace, and 8-year-old Josie.
Other Reddit users responded with hopes that Jana somehow gets some privacy.
“Maybe she’ll get her own room when she turns 30…” said one fan. While another wrote, “I remember in an episode she actually had some sort of wooden screen next to her bed.”
They continued, “What’s more creepy is that back in the early days some were made to share beds… so some of the little ones would share a bed with the older ones.”

Jana is the one Duggar sister who doesn’t seem to mind waiting for the right guy instead of marrying the first man that comes along. And, in a recently surfaced 2016 interview, she seemingly throws shade at her sisters for being so eager to tie the knot. Joy-Anna, Jessa, Jill, and Jinger all married the first guy they courted.
When a producer asked her where she sees herself in five years, she responded that she didn’t know what the next five years would bring, but she still has hopes and dreams, and maybe she’ll meet the right one and get married and have kids.

Jana then added that there had been guys come along and ask to court her, but they weren’t right for her, and she isn’t out to get married to the first one that comes along. She said that it can be tempting to want to get married when she sees her married siblings with their kids, and they are all going out on dates together.
And, it’s weird to be in an in-between stage – since she’s not a younger kid, but not married –, but she is staying busy and content where God has her right now.
Jana Duggar says that waiting isn’t always easy, but she is at peace with her life.
