Note: This post has been updated as of June 2018 and includes information from all the Duggar weddings up until Josiah’s wedding!
The Duggars are an extra-large family, and with 19 kids, they will be hosting their fair share of weddings for years to come. To date, six of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar‘s 19 kids have tied the knot, and more will be following shortly.
Josiah Duggar is the latest of the family’s many offspring to get married. As Counting On fans know, at least one or two Duggar kids have gotten hitched each year for the last four years or so.
Joseph Duggar became the first Duggar boy to say “I do” in nearly 10 years when he married Kendra Caldwell in 2017. While some of the Duggar boys have stayed single, nearly all of the family’s daughters (who are of age) are hitched. Joy Anna Duggar said “I do” in May 2017 and Jinger married Jeremy Vuolo in November 2016. In 2014, Jill married Derick Dillard and Jessa married Ben Seewald. Eldest Duggar son, Josh, who the first to get hitched, married his wife Anna back in 2008.
Of course, the first Duggar bride was Michelle, who married Jim Bob back in 1984.
