Jana Duggar, 30, admits she worries she is still single



Jana Duggar is the oldest single Duggar kid and she continues to live at home.

The unmarried 30-year-old talks about her single status on tonight's episode of Counting On

She admits she often gets questions about why she hasn't found the one.

She doesn't think she's picky, but people think there must be something 'wrong' with her — and she sometimes wonders if it's true:

"Most of my siblings have gotten married really young," she says. "Some people are like, 'Are you picky?' I'm like, 'I don't think so.'"

Her friend chimes in and says, "Or they're like, 'What's wrong with you? Why are you still single?'" Jana continues jokingly, "'Yes! And then I think wait... 'Oh my, is there?'"

Jana admitted in July that she 'longs' to be married

I've been reading too much historical fiction but she's a Charlotte Lucas.

Is the only way for her to get out of the home is to get married? (I'm assuming yes)
definitely, unless she surprises everyone by telling her family to fuck themselves and then goes rogue but i think she's too steeped in the koolaid for that (i'd love it so much though)
I feel bad for her because I can’t imagine the pressure her family puts on her and I bet they shame her for being single

I think my parents gave up on me ever having my own family and it’s low key freeing

lmao same. My nephew was kept secret from everyone in the family because my brother and sister in law were only 21 and weren't married at the time, so when he was born and my dad told my grandparents, my granddad looked at me and said, "I didn't think I'd ever see great grandchildren." lol welp! not from me!
she needs to get out of that house

I hear Girl Defined has some books on being single! They also have a ton on videos about it, even though they are both now married. You should check it out and then get out of the crazy fucking cult you've been in for 30 years!

also I live for r/fundiesnark. JRod is fucking bonkers. They all are!
JRod is SOMETHING. Telling how happy Nurie looked the day after being freed.
I still can't get over the fact that Nurie is a real name. I do hope Nurie is safe, happy and healthy. JRog can burn in hell with her Plexus and crusty eyeliner and mascara.

JRod creeps me out more than any of these other fundies tbh. There's something seriously deranged about her.

Yes girl. Maintain your normalcy in that family. She shouldn't settle for some creepy purity-pusher, either.

A friend of mine got engaged over the weekend and my reaction was basically:

I'm in my 30s and I feel like I should be, but I'm not into the idea of marriage at all.

I wish women were fertile for longer lol and we got rid of this social construct to get married and have kids at 30 because honestly 30 is so young in this day and age to have children and give up your independent life and not put your career first in my opinion.

I wish we could have the first kid at 40 because I feel like 20s should be about adventuring, 30s should be about advancing in your career or building up your finances and getting your shit together and maybe marriage and 40s should be having kids. It’s overwhelming that society’s expectation for women at 25 is to party and be carefree but somehow in 5 years she’s supposed to get married, have children and get her shit together.

I know it’s different for everyone and some people have do have kids at 40 and some at 25 but with turning 30 is there’s this status quo expectation to get married and have kids and the negative reaction to turning 30 for most women signifies that most people are not ready for marriage or kids at this age but somehow feel forced to otherwise their “worth” will decrease if they get older.

TLDR; being a woman sucks.
Lol I truly don't think I'd be mentally ready to have a kid until I'm about 48.
I love that I always read your comments in Gene's voice.
ITA that women should be fertile longer. I would love to not worry about it and have a kid in my 40s. Men are able to reproduce until they’re ancient, it’s not fair!

sameeeeeeee. I feel so much pressure rn @ 28 to find someone and lock them down in the next couple of years just because I do eventually want kids. but I know that if I was a guy I wouldn't be stressed one bit rn.

& yes I know there's better fertility treatments and health screenings than ever, but it'd be so damn freeing to not have to worry about it nearly at all.
I honest to God don't think I could raise a kid in my 40's (i.e., newborn). I'm already 30 and like tired? Lol. I can't imagine being like 50-60 and dealing with teenage angst.

Thank fuck we're not fertile for longer. I've been waiting for menopause since I was 13.

Honestly it truly does feel unfair. I know women don't just stop being able to have children in their 30s but I've spent a lot of time reading IVF forums and while some "older" women don't have a problem, age absolutely DOES matter and can affect the quality of eggs, the number of eggs you have left, not to mention how much easier it is to be and recover from being pregnant in your 20s as opposed to your 30s. Men's sperm degrades as they age too but they seem to have a lot longer than women do before their sperm quality starts to legitimately affect the health of their babies, not to mention that they get decades longer to produce sperm than women get to produce eggs.
It is young, but hear me out. Having kids is so exhausting and even good men are mostly useless at parenting (exhausted from their ‘real jobs’ pfft) so it’s helpful to have grandparents in the picture. So you wouldn’t wanna wait toooo long in order to take advantage of the older generation. Or we need to permanently ditch men for anything other than getting our rocks off and raise babies with our friends.
She gay.
lol I'm 27 and don't see myself getting married soon......

It is freaking weird to see people my age or even younger having kids and marrying. I feel like I didn't reach this part of life yet. I'll be forever 24yrs old in my mind
Jenna's 30 year old life with that amazing walk-in closet and makeup was fabulous
I love this movie so much lol
I've never been more content with being single and childless than during this pandemic.

The possibility that you're trapped in a relationship you hate (or loved but the pandemic caused it to spiral) or the stress of just raising a kid in all this *shudders*. I'll take being a bit touch-starved over either.
Counting my unmarried & childless blessings
yeah I'm sadder about being single than normal but man, I feel for parents rn.
Same same. I pour one out to all parents during this, shit is no joke
As someone who used to be into church and immersed into the church culture, I sympathize with her, the feeling of "longing to be married" is so toxic in church imo. I was longing to be married when I was 19, can't imagine what it feels like to feel that way at 30 when there's already so much really STUPID stigma of being 30 just in the regular world in general.
Nearly 30 and single and enjoying the hell out of it. Also nearly 30 and living at home which...isn’t ideal so I understand. I’m not proud of my situation but I’m not ashamed of it either. Wish staying at home until I can afford to move out and still live a comfortable life was viewed as “normal.”
I'm in the same situation and I totally agree with everything you say.
if she wasn't in a cult, her life would be pretty normal tbh. it seems like she mostly just gardens and takes road trips when she's not being forced to raise and/or babysit her younger siblings/nieces and nephews. better than being married at 19 and being expected to be either pregnant or newly postpartum at all times

i hope she breaks free someday tbh but i'd be stunned if she actually did
In this family, it seem like a woman not getting married and not getting pregnant is already breaking free in a way.
I don't know why people act like getting married is hard. Your age is irrelevant. A woman at any age can charm an idiot and walk her way down the isle, the issue is that immediately following that 9 times out of 10 he's going to start beating the shit out of you lol. So there is really no need or rush to run out and get married. There are far far far FAR more awful men then good one and I promise it is way more worth it to be alone than to be berated and threatened every day of your little life. Meeting a kind one of course is possible!! but it is not the default and never will be.
9 out of 10?
You should seek some counseling, no shade.
I always think it is things that happened to other people. Just a longing I have. I get sad over it just the same. I would like the 2 point 4.
