    There's a line in When Harry Met Sally when Billy Crystal's character tells Meg Ryan's character that "when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible." The Duggar clan seems to wisely live by that mantra because long engagements just aren't their thing. Jana and Jinger Duggar advised against them in their book, Growing Up Duggar, and now Jessa Duggar and her love Ben Seewald seem to be embracing that good advice by setting their wedding date sooner rather than later.

    The couple's Bed, Bath & Beyond registry tells us everything we need to know about their upcoming nuptials. The wedding will take place on November 1, 2014 -- which means they will have been engaged for less than three months before they say "I do."

    We were beyond excited (although not very surprised) earlier this month when Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald officially announced their engagement. The pair has been courting for almost a year, which by 19 Kids and Counting standards is practically a decade.

    Anyway, we've known that Ben has had a flair for the romance for awhile, showering Jessa with sweet notes and pearl bracelets and the like, not to mention tons of sweet affection and attention on social media, but he really outdid himself with an elaborate proposal any girl would've had a hard time turning down. Heck, even I want to say yes!

    Are you excited for new episodes of 19 Kids and Counting? Season 9 of TLC’s hit reality show featuring the Duggar family is set to premiere Tuesday September 2, and we are more stoked than ever after watching the first promo clip for the season.

    Thanks to social media, we already know that it’s going to be a wild season, if for no other reason than Jill Duggar’s wedding to Derick Dillard is likely to be prominently featured -- and maybe even her pregnancy announcement! Plus Jessa Duggar is now engaged to Ben Seewald, Josh and Anna Duggar apparently have some news about their growing family, and of course the usual Duggar shenanigans are bound to ensue.

    Michelle Duggar is receiving some less-than-awesome press today. Whyfore? Because she recorded a robo-call to fight a proposed ordinance to fight discrimination against transgendered individuals. Oh man, Michelle -- what were you thinking? The ordinance seeks to appoint a council member to field complaints from transgender people who think they have been discriminated against. But Michelle seems to think passing the ordinance would allow sexual predators access to children. Uh, that is a HUGE and nonsensical leap, yo.

    I genuinely dig this lady. She's truly gifted when it comes to interacting with children, and I think every human being should be allowed to live their life in whatever way they see fit. In theory, someone in Michelle's position should believe the same thing! She's received her own share of criticism from the country (and the world) about her decision to continue having children. You'd think as such she'd be more sensitive to the feelings and rights of others.

    We’ve been speculating about it for quite some time now, and it looks like Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are FINALLY engaged. The young couple, who have been courting for almost a year now, made the big announcement to People magazine on Friday morning.

    What’s more, despite the fact that they are just now allowed to hold hands and can’t smooch until their wedding day, they’re already planning to have 20 or more kids of their own.

    But their plans come with quite a twist.

    Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald have been together for nearly year, and though we've speculated wildly on an impending wedding date, there's still no ring nor official announcement in sight for the young couple.

    The 19 Kids and Counting star seems quite content with the way things are for the moment, and recently took to Instagram to document the "11th monthiversary" of their courtship. Jessa shared this sweet couples selfie over the weekend, and later revealed the romantic gift she received from her man, along with a couple more lovey-dovey notes.

    This has got to be either the most romantic gesture I’ve ever seen from a man in love ... or the cheesiest.

    Apparently, Jessa Duggar’s boyfriend Ben Seewald is showing men out there how modern courtship is done with his latest move. The only problem is that I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be impressed with it or cringe with embarrassment.

    Fans of 19 Kids & Counting were stoked to learn that the Duggar family-themed show was renewed for a ninth season. The first episode will premiere on Tuesday, September 2 on TLC at 9 p.m. ET. The show will then run through November, according to reports.

    Apparently the show picks up right where it left off last summer from season 8. And there is one thing in particular fans can't wait to see, although the photos have been out for a couple months now. But that's okay. Yes, that's right, most likely season 9 will feature Jill Duggar's wedding to Derick Dillard. The wedding took place in June, but fans are going to love seeing it play out on their television screens. At least TLC is hoping so!

    There's plenty more for those who love the show to look forward to. Considering Derick's proposal led to the highest ratings ever in the series history, we can only wait and see what happens this fall. I have a feeling the ratings will only continue to climb.

    Can you believe Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have been married for over a month already? The newlyweds have been ridiculously adorable documenting their brand new marriage via social media, and an occasional awkward selfie aside, we can't get enough of it.

    On Wednesday, the lovebirds connected over lunch when Jill went to his office, presumably with a picnic basket full of sandwiches and little cupids throwing heart-shaped confetti, because that's way we imagine it. Wouldn't that be awesome? Anyway, the 19 Kids and Counting star Instagrammed a sweet snap of the two of them sharing a mid-day bite to eat, and their grins are palpable.

    Are Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald officially engaged yet? Come on, people, we need another Duggar wedding! We can't be sustained by Jill Dillard's snap-happy Instagram account alone. Actually, it was a photo on Mrs. Dillard's social media that sparked the latest engagement rumors surrounding Jess and Ben.

    Jill invited her little sis Jessa over for lunch on Monday, and since the newlywed 19 Kids and Counting star has gone a little bit Instagram-crazy recently, she documented the occasion with a sibling selfie. Of course, the photo itself, along with the revealing caption, tell us everything we need to know about Jessa's betrothal status.
