The future of “19 Kids and Counting” may be hanging in the balance, but that isn’t stopping the Duggar family from updating fans about their lives. Following in the footsteps of Jessa (Duggar) Seewald’s numerous pregnancy photos, the Duggars shared a brief update on newly courting couple Josiah Duggar and Marjorie Jackson on Tuesday.
“Too cute. These two are doing so well in their courtship,” Josiah’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, posted to the family’s official Facebook fan page. “It is a fun and wonderful time for them. We love watching God unfold life as they seek Him during this special time.”

Jim Bob and Michelle also shared a new photo of the couple. The picture shows the pair standing on either side of a door, Josiah, 18, with his arms crossed and Marjorie, 17, with her hands resting on the door frame. “These two makes us smile,” reads the caption.
Josiah last updated fans on his courtship in May. The TLC reality star shared two photos of himself and Marjorie taking in the sights and attractions at Silver Dollar City amusement park in Branson, Missouri. Several members from the Duggar and Jackson clans were also present to supervise their outing.
Josiah met Marjorie while taking Spanish lessons inside her family’s home. The duo reconnected in December 2014 during a missionary trip to El Salvador. They confirmed their relationship status in April, posting an announcement video to YouTube.
While “19 Kids and Counting” is not currently on air, viewers have already met Marjorie. The aspiring graphic designer made her first cameo appearance on the May 5 episode, which featured the birth of Josiah’s nephew, Israel David Dillard. She made her official debut on the series during the Season 9 reunion special, “Digging in With the Duggars."
TLC pulled “19 Kids and Counting” from its schedule in May after Josiah’s eldest brother Josh Duggar, 27, admitted to molesting five underage girls as a teenager. Two of his sisters, Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard, have confirmed they were victims of his “inappropriate touching.” TLC has not announced their plans for the series.
