Joseph Duggar's Courtship Proposal to Kendra Caldwell Was Awkwardly Adorable

Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell

Awww, this is too cute! Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell got married last weekend, but in traditional Duggar-style, their relationship began with a formal courtship.


Which means that Joe had to ask Kendra's dad for permission to get to know her on a more personal level, and he had to ask her if she'd like to "date" him by hanging out together with the intention of determining compatibility for marriage in the near future.

Counting On cameras caught the moment Joseph asked Kendra to be his side-hugging girlfriend on film, and it was pretty dang adorable. Joe gathered a small group of friends and family members to visit the grounds of his childhood home with Kendra. He told the camera, "I'm nervous to enter into a courtship ... that's always something every guy should be nervous about."

"I was wondering if you wanted to go to the next step of courtship with me," Joe asked his intended. When she said an enthusiastic yes, he put a promise ring on her right hand, and of course the two sealed the deal with a side-hug, in the presence of her father.

"I didn't know you were going to ask me today," Kendra said, all smiles and blushing. That's when one of the younger siblings ran onto the field with a bouquet of roses for her. It was completely adorable, and Kendra seemed so happy we can't help but feel her joy.

Congrats again to these crazy kids -- we love seeing how it all started!
