A Duggar fan page recently shared a throwback clip of now-canceled TLC show 19 Kids and Counting, which shows Jessa Duggar, awaiting her now-husband, Ben Seewald, to wrap up his private conversation with her parents, Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar.
The video shows the trio discussing in a closed room. Ben Seewald, 26, and the eldest son of Michael Seewald and Guinn Seewald, asks his current in-laws, Jim and Michelle, "I was wondering if we could make it official, if I could ask her to make an official courtship?" he proposed. Internet calls the clip cringy and uncomfortable.
The clip further shows Jim Bob sighing and looking at his wife for her approval. In a confessional part, Jessa shares that she and Ben have kept their relation to friendship for a while until they fell for each other. After she joins Ben and her parents in the room, Ben proposes once again.

"We've been praying and talking for awhile. I was just wondering if you wanted to make it official and if you wanted to officially court me?" asks Seewald. As Jessa responds with a simple yes, Michelle congratulates her daughter with a hug. And there comes the cringiest part, where Jim Bob allows the couple to embrace each other.
"I'll tell you what, you can go ahead and give him a side hug," commands the patriarch of the Duggar family. The former TLC stars, Jess and Ben, tied the knots on November 1, 2014. The fundamentalist pair are parents to four, Spurgeon Elliot, Henry Wilberforce, Ivy Jane,and Fern Elliana.
