Counting On fans are going back in time to take a closer look at Jessa and Ben Seewald’s love story. Is it possible that their relationship was actually shortsighted? There are theories and rumors about the couple’s past and the roots of their marriage.
There have been many big changes in Jessa and Ben’s life together since they tied the knot in November of 2014. They have welcomed four children, Spurgeon, 6, Henry, 5, Ivy, 2, and Fern, 6 months, to their family. The pair has survived the cancelation of TLC’s Counting On, as well as other family drama and scandals. Now, they are currently working on their fixer-upper, which they purchased last summer for their growing family.
While fans know what Jessa and Ben Seewald’s lives look like today, where did it all begin? Read on to learn more about their love story.
Was Jessa and Ben Seewald’s relationship shortsighted?
On Reddit, Duggar snarkers are discussing Jessa and Ben Seewald’s roots and where it all began. There is heavy speculation that Ben was first interested in Jessa because he wanted an opportunity to be on TV.
However, both of the family’s shows have now come to an end. One Duggar critic writes, “When they married I don’t think they expected the show to end. Ben was Jessas super fan/crush and Jessas wanted to get out, the only option to her was marriage.”
Another critic says, “She probably thought she was madly in love instead of just being infatuated with the idea of love, the way we all did when we got our first boyfriend/girlfriend as young teenagers.”
Someone else adds, “Yes — she was stunted and made a shortsighted choice.”
Other Duggar snarkers agree that Jessa and Ben’s decision to be together was shortsighted. In the Duggar family, relationships tend to move quickly from friendship to courtship to marriage. Now, it’s obvious that Ben’s life is about much more than simply being on the Duggars’ TLC shows. He’s now a father to four kids.
While a lot of this is speculation. Duggar critics seem to agree that Ben was too focused on getting with Jessa and his chance to be on TV that their relationship might have been rushed.
So, do you think there is any truth to the speculation that Jessa and Ben Seewald’s relationship was shortsighted? Or do you think it’s just a bunch of rumors?
