Duggar bombshell: Are newly engaged Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald already living together? Doesn’t this go completely against their strict courtship rules?

Jessa Duggar, 21, may already be living with her fiance, Ben Seewald, 19. Even though they are not married, a new clip from the upcoming season of 19 Kids & Counting shows the entire Duggar family preparing for Ben to move into their giant home. Whoa!

Jessa Duggar & Ben Seewald Engaged & Living Together: ’19 Kids & Counting’

Well, this is certainly a surprising twist!

The Duggar family, primarily known for their very strict courtship rules, have welcomed a new person into their home: Jessa’s fiance, Ben!

That’s right, a brand-new preview from the upcoming new season of 19 Kids & Counting reveals that Jessa’s fiance has officially moved into the Duggar family home. Well, sort of.

Technically, Ben is living in the guest house, but everyone in the Duggar family has admitted that this will definitely make their strict courtship and physical restrictions even harder to control.

In the clip, which you can watch below, Jessa gets some help from her younger siblings to decorate the guest house for Ben. Some of the younger children made a bunch of super cute drawings to welcome Ben into the family. How sweet!

However, there is one thing about Ben moving in that benefits the Duggar family — especially those who act as “chaperones” for courting couples. According to Jessa’s siblings, they are going to make a TON of money keeping their eyes on the couple for their parents, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar. Ha!

So, tell us what YOU think, HollywoodLifers — Is it a good idea to let Ben move into the Duggar family home while he is still courting Jessa? Do you think they’ll break their courtship rules? Let us know your thoughts below!

What are the diggers showing there doughters. Is it right for them to be in there life a lot? I should say not.the digger parents. Are in there life because the mom had them and the dad made them. But let go.!! They are big and if you’ll let them alone each one of them have a life to live that god has in store for them. They have made you all a lot of money. Let them bye new cloth. Feel what its like to have new things. Good luck digger girls. And god bless each one of you.

The Duggar parents are sick control freaks whose physical and psychological restrictions are in NO WAY representative of Christian beliefs or teachings. They’ve bastardized faith to suit their own twisted needs. ’19 Kids and Counting’ is nothing more than a documentary of abuse, dressed up to try to look like wholesomeness.

Please forgive my typos, it has been a long, long, hard day.
A lot of us wish we had had such a nice family. If people don’t like them, they can go catch the Kardashians – you’ll have a new appreciation for the Duggars.

I use to like the duggerd. But now with all this talk and every thing that is going on. And all the lies. Because they are lies . how can they come out and try To tell people about there belife. When nothing is true. And no respect. When you being the father invite a man to live in your home . knowing he is interested in your dither. Not cool at all. I don’t thank there will be a lot of people believing in the digger family any more. L. B. Big. H. Town

This was painful to read. I would recommend spell check but even that would bear little to no help for you…

Her father asked him to move into their guest apt., so that they could all get to know each other better, as he lived in another town….so now he moved in, and works for Jim Bob. They did not “live together”, and are now married.

Hi Linda, I just want to thank you for a calm, kind comment! It is bad enough, the way Christians are treated these days, so when we who believe in God and His Son Jesus start beating up on others, it breaks my heart. But your comment was nice and yay, you didn’t yell it :0)

There is no way in heck ther parents would let a young man live in the house – the Duggar girls are protected in a way a lot of us who are now women wish we had been by our Dads.

all i have to respond to is about “the way christians are treated these days” – boo hoo. i’m sorry, but christians are absolutely not treated horribly! the law no longer favors christians, and so they take this as some sort of attack on their religion. . i’m a strict atheist, and i find christianity to be a thinly veiled method of societal control, but i do think everyone has a right to believe and practice what they want. although i dont feel christians extend anyone else the same courtesy.

TWO YEARS IS WHAT IT TAKES TIME TO HEAL
THE WOMAN ARE HAVING BABIES ONE AFTER ANOTHER
THIS IS WEARING THE WOMAN OUT PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY
WHEN DO THEY HAVE TIME FOR THEIR HUSBANDS
AND WHEN DO THEY HAVE TIME TO RELAX AND SPEND TIME
ALONE WITH JESUS CHRIST….. WE NEED OUR QUIET TIME WITH
GOD. THEY MUST BE WORN OUT HAVING BABIES THAT CLOSE TOGETHER
CHILDREN ARE A BLESSING FROM THE LORD BUT THE WOMAN NEEDS
TIME TO HEAL

The rules for the girls are all one sided. They view their bodies as a something that would sexually drive a man crazy so cover it up. Very closed mine thinking. They put no stipulations on the men.

Well he actually isn’t livid in their house he is living in the guest house which they had to drive to to get there…so it’s like being next door neighbours. Don’t try and question these people one of the most amazing families I have ever seen very inspiring if only all young people in love had this much respect for each other which is very evident between both of the young couples.

it’s easy to have respect for someone you’re hardly in a relationship with. “Courting” is not dating, and i can almost guarantee you there are hardly any fights, arguments, disagreements, or actual realistic discussion about the future. it’s easy to smile big for a camera.

If he’s living in the guest house, they’re not living together. Stop trying to mislead.

Next door, exactly :0) what would be wrong with dating the boy next door? I am sure that this was talked about and this young man agreed to (and probably wants to!) follow the rules of the home.

Thank you big time to the majority of you, (yay!) who wrote nice posts based in fact.
This is all just to stir a pot, get people fighting – but it’s a Hollywood Blog and this family is really so not “Hollywood”, so I guess that is why it was presented in a way that people who ONLY (and this really need to stop) read the headline.
@Alice Clark… oh honey, I’m not sure what is going on there, but you have some bad info , I do not know of any place in the Bible that says “THE BIBLE
SAYS, I THOUGHT THE WOMAN SHOULD WAIT TO YEARS SO SHE CAN
HEAL ”
I did my undergrad in Applied Ministry, I am not an ordained pastor but have studied Scripture for gosh, over a quarter of a century and if I missed that maybe you can tell me what verse.

Last, “Sammy Sosa”, you are incorrect. Have you watched the show? The oldest young man in that family didn’t kiss his bride until they were married, IIRC. No double standard. If you wnat your daightes to be respected by men who wish to date them, you also have to raise sons who will be respectful of the women they will date. It seems like they have done a pretty good job at both.
