Another young Duggar is paired off!

Jim Bob and Michelle's 18-year-old son Josiah is now courting fellow Christian Marjorie Jackson, 17, the 19 Kids And Counting family confirmed to People.

"It's been going very well," Josiah told the magazine. "I met Marjorie a few years ago when I was taking Spanish lessons at her house and I was very impressed with the way she was with her siblings and her love for the Lord."

Sparks flew on a mission trip to El Salvador in December, the teen claims: "She really caught my eye."

However, Jackson says she's been smitten with Josiah for much longer than a few months.

"For me it was an immediate thing, I have always admired him and his family," she told People.

Despite her longtime interest in the TLC reality star, Jackson and her new man will be taking their relationship glacially slow. As has reported, every Duggar date during the courtship phase is chaperoned by parents, and "side hugs" are the only permitted form of physical contact.

19 Kids and Counting

Daughter Jessa, 22, and husband Ben Seewald, 19, didn't share their first kiss until their wedding day last fall!

But once Duggars say "I do," they move very, very fast. Jill, 23, and husband Derick Dillard, 26, welcomed son Israel on April 6— just nine months after they tied the knot.
