Jessa Duggar And Ben Seewald Are Living Together Before Marriage, The Heathens

Be careful with all that eye contact. You might get pregnant.

The newly engaged Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald have yet to become husband and baby maker wife, so this new report about them living together is quite scandalous. That’s right, according to People magazine, Ben has moved to the Duggar family home in Tontitown, Arkansas — the same place Jessa lives. They might as well name the house Temptation Island at this point, am I right or am I right or am I right? [holds up hand for high five and gets no response]

If you’re currently tearing your hair out stressing that Ben and Jessa are sharing a bed or even a roof, have no fear. Ben is living in the guesthouse, and daddy Jim Bob is totally cool with the situation:

“He moved up here a few weeks ago,” Jim Bob, 49, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “It has been really good. He has been able to spend a lot more time with Jessa and our family. We have a guesthouse in front of our house, with a shower and everything, separate from the main house.”

Oh, thank goodness. We don’t want them using the same shower, even if they bathe at different times. They might scribble obscene messages for each other in the fogged up glass. Messages like, “I want to hold your hand all night long” and “Hug me from the front.” Absolutely filthy.

But wait! There’s more! Jim Bob is more than just accepting of the living situation; he finds it useful. They could always use more manual labor up in the Duggar household. What a great set-up!

“After Michelle and I were talking about it, we have so many projects to do that we need help for – everything from construction projects to keeping the grass mowed to putting roof on a building, paperwork and things like that – and we asked him if he would be interested in moving up here so that Jessa and his relationship could be really accelerated. He was all for it and his parents were happy about it.”

Whoa there Jim Bob. “Accelerated”? I thought that’s what you didn’t want. The relationship train just pulled into Hand-Holding City. If you increase the speed, they’ll be at Kiss Town before their wedding day, which is so not allowed. And let’s make sure that first baby-making session doesn’t happen until it’s appropriate, which, based on Jill Dillard’s speed, is one second after saying “I do.” Seriously, that’s some high-speed baby-making.

You witness even more awkwardness in this clip from the 19 Kids and Counting season premiere, which airs September 2 at 9 PM on TLC.

    The Duggars never cease to entertain me.

  • Jessieface

    I feel like this was a strategic move to make sure Jessa didn’t escape.

    • Alana Vincenza

      The guest house is actually a watch tower.

    • JJ

      Jim Bob totally set the whole thing you just know it.

    • Paige Kay

      You sound rather paranoid….

  • Francie

    Totally just texted “hug me from the front” to my hubby.

    Michelle! Get the bundling bag and chastity belt, quick!!

  • Rachel Sea

    I hope she sneaks out and they bone like bunnies who have discovered birth control.

  • Isabela Macedo

    You know what they say about too much hand holding…just look at Jill who got knocked up before the wedding! *prays that she turns up pregnant in a few weeks* haha

      After Jessa And Ben get married, If Jessa gets pregnant then good for Jessa And Ben because they talk about having a family soon.They will have a house when they marry ( no morgage) and money from being on the show, so they will have a good start in their life.Congratulations .. Jessa And Ben

    • Beth

      you sound very cynic, where does that come from? Jealousy? Maybe much.

  • Emily A.

    So… He doesn’t have a real-life job or something? He is essentially Mona on Who’s he Boss?

    • RCIAG

      No he’s not cool enough or drunk enough to be Mona.

  • CW

    Sounds like the bride-to-be has some cold feet. You’d think Jim Bob would rather have a called off courtship or even engagement than a divorce down the road.

    Seen the pictures? That thing is not even a guest house. Its a room with a bed in it, and blankets stapled over windows. As much as I dislike Ben (he is a smug douche), JimBob should at least give him somewhere better to live. I feel bad for him, as JimBob will always be in control here, I bet that’s why he let Jessa court him, hes a 19 year old little man boy who is easily controlled. I always thought Jessa would wear the pants in their relationship (love that girl, shes so snarky!) but no, her parents will.
    I really hope that they sneak some sex in. JimBob would deserve it for making things so tempting-and besides, I am just not sure whether they are compatible personality wise, but I can tell they want to hump eachother. (but then again, they wouldn’t deserve all the shaming and purity crap talk that they would get if he even got close to her vagina)

    A deceptive title, Ben isn’t living WITH Jessa. He is living in a room in one if their warehouses, good try though.

  • Ruth Jordan-Downs

    They have good morals so of course they will be ridiculed and made fun of. I’m sure they dont care. They are strong in their faith and I stand with them.Their children are not out having sex before marriage, not expecting tax payers to support them or involved in drugs or drive bys. They are not assets to our community not a LIABILITY like most. .SO MAY GOD GIVE FORGIVE UR IGNORANCE.

    I know Ben is only 19 but the way Jim Bob “Machiavelli” Duggar maneuvered and accelerated the relationship really creeped me out. He is so terrified that Jessa and Ben would get married and Jessa would leave the nest that he set this up to make sure
    They stay close by. Watching Ben cleaning the toilet creeped me out and I thought about indentured servitude. Does marrying Jessa mean Ben has to sell.his soul.
