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.
