Jana Duggar has been a bridesmaid in all of her siblings’ weddings but she’s not in a rush to walk down the aisle herself! The Counting On star said on the October 22 episode of the show that contrary to the family norm, she’s not waiting around to get married, because she has other goals.

“I’m gonna be the one to guess that Jana is going to the one that’s going to be married next,” Jana’s brother Jedidiah speculated. “Jana has a bunch of guys after her, all the time. And so I think it’s just a matter of time before Mr. Right comes around.”

A producer asked Jana, 29, whether she felt pressure to get married because many of her younger siblings have already started their own families. “There can be that pressure, I guess. Everyone’s always giving their suggestions,” Jana responded in frustration.

“Some will pressure in some ways, I’m like, ‘Y’all when the time comes I’ll let you know!’” she said of her siblings.

The Counting On star continued, “If I was sitting here waiting to get married, I think that would be more depressing but instead, I really look at this as, OK what are other things that I could be doing right now that maybe I can’t do later?”

“I’ve really enjoyed the different opportunities that I’ve had like travel; even still being able to travel with my family that maybe my married siblings can’t do,” she said. Jana most recently visited her sister Jinger in California after spending a few weeks in The Bahamas doing hurricane relief.

Jana also revealed she’s no stranger to dating. “There have been a number of guys but none of them worked out,” she said. “Different ones of us have been in relationships, courtships, whatever you want to label it as. Of course, it doesn’t always end in marriage and that’s OK. You have to sometimes talk to someone, get to know someone and realize, you know what, it doesn’t have to end in marriage.”

Her mom, Michelle, however, seems to have a different perspective about courting. “Courtship versus dating is kind of like, you’re marrying this person,” the mom-of-nineteen said in a confessional. “Because if I’m not even interested in that person as a future spouse then I’m not going to play around with their emotions and get their attention drawn to me because that wouldn’t be honorable.”
