After just a month of official courtship, former soccer player Jeremy Vuolo proposed to Jinger Duggar with a .75-carat diamond ring. The two just told Us Weekly some MORE details about their relationship!
Jinger reflects on how perfect she and Jeremy are for each other: “It’s an answer to my prayers. I asked God for this in a future spouse and He has done far above anything I could have ever imagined or dreamed in bringing Jeremy into my life.”
Though the relationship moved very quickly, the sixth-oldest Duggar claims she was never marriage-crazy. “I was never one of those girls to sit around like, ‘Oh, I want this proposal, this ring, this wedding.’ I always thought, ‘Whatever this young man does, I’m sure I’ll be so in love.’”
The pair haven’t decided on a wedding date just yet, but their wedding will be held in Arkansas. And surprisingly, Jinger will be breaking away from Jessa and Jill’s tradition of having huge weddings!
“We’re trying to keep it intimate, between family and friends. We want to be very intentional with who we invite.”
After the wedding, Jinger will be leaving Arkansas to Jeremy’s town of Laredo, Texas, where he pastors a church. “I’m so excited to be joining my best friend,” Jinger said. Fans have long suspected Jinger would be the one to break from the Duggar mold and see the world. She previously expressed the desire to see New York City!
As for kids, the two haven’t had an in depth discussion about it yet, though they both agree that kids ARE in their future. Jinger said, “Well I love kids. I’m excited for the future, when Jeremy and I are married, to start a family.”
Jeremy agreed with Jinger’s noncommittal answer, “We haven’t talked about size, but I know we both love children. They’re a joy. We’ll have to see what the Lord provides.”
And YES, they will be saving their first kiss for the wedding! Although, these two lovebirds have actually already broken one of the courtship rules! Jill posted a picture of Jinger and Jeremy parting in an airport. Per courtship rules, no front facing hugs are allowed—only side hugs!
But it appears that only Jinger has turned to face Jeremy, and he’s trying to keep it a side hug! So I think we can let this one slide.
