The Latest Duggar Courtship Could Be a Disaster Waiting to Happen

We were beyond thrilled last week to learn that Jinger Duggar, 22, is courting a hot soccer player and pastor, but things might not be as perfect as they seem. It turns out that Jeremy Vuolo may have an ulterior motive for dating a Duggar daughter.

It turns out that the 28-year-old pastor of Grace Community Church in Laredo, Texas, used to struggle with a grandeur of fame. In an interview with the Daily Orange about three years ago, Vuolo admitted that one of the main reasons he wanted to be a soccer superstar was for the money and power, and not necessarily to glorify God.

In the interview, Vuolo confessed that while he said he only wanted to show God's glory through the sport and on the field, the sports psychologist would question Vuolo's motives. According to Jeremy, the sports psychologist would say, "Yeah, okay. I'm buying that a little bit, but I think there's more to it than that."

Vuolo went on to explain that his counselor would say, "I think you want more money and I think you want more fame and I think you want more attention and approval."

Jeremy eventually quit playing professional soccer, and went on to become a pastor of his own church. He definitely has a past and isn't afraid to share it -- he admitted to spending a night in jail after getting drunk and resisting arrest several years ago.

But is part of that desire for fame still there? We just hope he's with Jinger for the right reasons, and not because he wants the limelight that comes with being involved with the Duggar family.

Then again, if he really does love Jinger and want to make a life with her, who better than someone who has never minded having a spotlight on them? We just want her to be happy.
