Jackson, 20, currently attends John Brown University, which is a liberal arts college. As Duggar fans know, none of the Duggar children have attended college. Michelle Duggar once revealed the children take courses through College Plus, which is an online course program.
Jill and Jinger Duggar have broken the family's dress code by wearing jeans instead of long skirts – and Jackson has done the same! Not only is she photographed wearing jeans in multiple photos, but she also wears shorts and mini dresses.
Jill, Jessa, Joy-Anna and in-law Kendra had babies within the first few months of marriage, but not for Jackson! Instead of marrying and having children, she's enjoying her life with her friends and doesn't seem to be in a new courtship.
Despite Jinger traveling to California and Jill temporarily living in El Salvador, the Duggar kids mainly remain in Arkansas. Fortunately for Marjorie, she has traveled to multiple places since her courtship ended. She posted photos from New York, Israel, Denver, Dominican Republic, Florida, Oklahoma and more!
Marjorie has also been able to focus on her career. Not only is she the author of Devoted: A Girl's 31-Day Guide To Good Living With A Great God, but she works at charity Compassion International.
Marjorie and Josiah announced their courtship in April 2015. After four months together, the Duggar and Jackson family revealed in a statement that Josiah and Marjorie have ended the courtship. Josiah told People in March 2016 of the failed romance, "Marjorie and I had a good time together," he said. "We were just trying to follow God's lead on everything. She didn't feel that it was the right timing then, so we called it quits for a bit."
The courtship ended after a police report accused Josiah's older brother Josh of molesting five minor females in the family home as a teen. The scandal resulted in the cancelation of 19 Kids and Counting. Josiah married Lauren over the weekend.
