Fans have long speculated about the reasons behind Jana Duggar's single status. While a single 27-year-old is hardly enough to bat an eyelash normally, this is a member of the Duggar family we're talking about, which means that if a woman in her late 20s hasn't found a husband yet, she must be secretly gay.


A source recently revealed to The Hollywood Gossip that Jim Bob Duggar is keeping his eldest daughter's associations with other women under wraps. They said that Jana does prefer the company of other females over men, but wouldn't go so far as to say she's gay. 

It is interesting to note that the insider was adamant that her parents want to keep those relationships out of the headlines.

While it's entirely possible that Jana has feelings of same-sex attraction, we think it's ridiculous to pin those on her just because she's 27 and single. Many times on Counting On, she's expressed a desire to find the right man for her -- he just hasn't come along yet.

She told Radar Online late last year, "There have been different guys who have come along and asked, but they haven't been, I don't know, the right one." Jana also admitted that she'd been tempted to accept an offer just to have someone, but ultimately resisted.

"It can be tempting, like, 'Oh, I really want to be married,' because in those moments, your siblings that are married and have little ones are going on dates and doing their thing," she shared. "It's like this weird in-between stage. I'm not a younger one, but I'm not an older, married one with kids."

Whatever the reason is for Jana being single, we're sure it's none of our business. We just hope she's happy no matter what path she chooses in life.
