Does Jinger Duggar's family actually disapprove of her relationship, or is the drama just for ratings?

Hold up — the Duggar family doesn't approve of Jinger's fast relationship with Jeremy Vuolo?

That's what new reports are saying — that several members of the family, including big sis Jessa and dad Jim Bob, have some serious reservations about how quickly Jinger and Vuolo went from courting to engaged.

The Duggar family announced in late June that Jinger and Vuolo were courting. By July, they announced their engagement.

The International Business Times reports that while Jessa's husband, Ben, is good friends with Vuolo, she still has her questions about the speed of the relationship.

"Jeremy and Ben are really good friends — Ben would say one of his best friends," Jessa said. "Now Jeremy’s getting to know my sister. It’s kinda crazy. It feels kinda too fast sometimes for me."

And Jim Bob was clear about his feelings during an episode of Counting On, when he and Jinger visited Vuolo's Texas hometown. While there, he grilled Vuolo about whether he could support Jinger's "expensive" shopping habits on a pastor's salary, as well as dissed the town, saying it was too hot and asking why Vuolo wouldn't move to Arkansas. While watching Jinger and Vuolo interact in Texas, Jim Bob commented that they were "moving pretty fast" and later told the camera during an interview that "I just don’t think they’re at the place to swap spit yet."

It's surprising that the Duggars would be concerned about Jinger moving too quickly in her relationship, since getting married and having children are goals that are pushed so hard by this family. Then again, maybe they're just trying to create some drama for Counting On, which has been steadily losing viewers since it premiered.
