It seems like love is really in the air among the Duggar household as another family member is set to tie the knot soon. During Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth's wedding festivities, Joseph Duggar proposed to Kendra Caldwell, his girlfriend of six months. Though still at a relatively young age of 22, the young Duggar has decided that it's time to settle down and start a family of his own. It was certainly a night full of love, surprises, and festivities, with all the family members gathered together to celebrate new beginnings. The newly-engaged couple also made their engagement official by posting a statement on the Duggar family's official website.

In the statement, Joe and Kendra shared that they are so excited to be engaged and to spend their life together. They also thanked the Lord for bringing them together and are looking forward to serving Christ as man and wife, and to create a new family for the Lord.

Time is not an issue

Amid the congratulatory messages for Joseph Duggar's engagement to Kendra Caldwell, there were still some negative comments and reactions from other people. Some believe that they are still too young to think about settling down, while some believe that the marriage won't last long.

It can be remembered that Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell announced their courtship last March. To say that the relationship is still new is an understatement, but according to sources, the couple is very much in love with each other and are excited to start a new chapter of their life together.

When their courtship was announced in March, the Duggar family defined it as dating with an intention to marry. And here they are, already engaged and one step closer to marriage.

Six months of getting to know each other

According to reports, Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell had the chance to get to know each other for around six months. Their similarities and common interests were some of the main reasons why they seemed to click perfectly, and this likely pushed the 22-year old Duggar to ask for her hand in marriage.

Another point of contention for some regarding the engagement of Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell is the fact that the latter is still 18-years-old. However, the Duggar family gave their assurance that both families know about the relationship and are all supportive of the engagement. The love story of the newly-engaged couple will be the next highlights for TLC's reality show, "Counting On."
