Last week, Jana Duggar, 30, spoke candidly about her future and the prospect of getting married. She revealed that she wasn’t too stressed about getting the right person.
Jana and her mother, Michelle Duggar, were interviewed by “Us Weekly,” on July 2, 2020. During the interview, Jana opened up about her love life and finding the right partner to marry.
“Yes, I long to be married and one day I think that will come, but I think … I’m just also just trying to stay busy with whatever comes along my path.”

JANA FEELS PRESSURED
The former “19 Kids and Counting” star explained: “I think if I sit there and I’m like, ‘Oh no, I’m not married’ and just [get] all worried about it, it makes things way worse.” Despite being single, Jana had people very close to her to look up to: her parents.
LOOKING UP TO HER PARENTS
Michelle, 53, and Jim Bob Duggar have been married since 1984. Jana looked up to them because of their capability to forgive and “make things right” when they have a problem.
She praised the pair for still having a long-lasting “genuine love.” Jana shared how her parents had the same love they had when they were young.
Her siblings Jill, Jessa, Joy-Anna, Jinger, Josh, Joseph, John David, and Josiah are all married. She’s the only Duggar over 21 who hasn’t found the right person yet.
PEOPLE MEDDLE IN HER LOVE LIFE
Last October, Jana revealed how “Everyone’s always giving their suggestions” when it comes to her love life. She confessed, at the time, that if she entertained the pressure, she would get depressed.
