Over the weekend, Jill Duggar became the first of the eight females in her family to get married. (No, there was no jealousy, Michelle Duggar insisted.)

However, is her younger sister Jessa going to walk down the aisle next? While a rep for "19 Kids & Counting" has said there's no news on the couple at this point, here are a few clues that another Duggar wedding might not be too far in the future.

1.
Jessa Began Courting First

Last September, it was announced that Jessa had begun a courtship with Ben Seewald, a local young man she met through church. Meanwhile, Jill only announced her courtship in March, though it later came to light that the two began communicating last fall.

The Duggars Take Courtships Very Seriously

When a couple begins a courtship, they're allowed to side-hug, though kissing is off-limits.(See one of Jill and Derick's first kisses here!) Why? So they can really focus on communication and see if the person they're seeing would make for a good spouse. “Courtship is a new season of life. It’s exciting,” she told "Good Morning America." “We call it dating with a purpose and not just frivolous, really considering the person as a potential life partner."

3.
They're In Love

These two may not be holding hands yet -- after all, Jill and Derick only began doing that once they were engaged -- but they're not afraid to make their feelings known on social media. "I love you, Sweetheart! @BenSeewald," Jessa wrote last month along with a silly selfie. A few days later, he followed suit and wrote, "Love you, Babe!"

4.
He's In With Her Family

When Jessa began her courtship with Ben, it was clear he already had her family's stamp of approval. "He's the first one she has shown interest in that has a spiritual focus and legitimate calling about ministry work," Jim Bob told People at the time. "When a guy is pursing your daughter, you want to check him out and see if there are any red flags and with Ben, there hasn't been. He is very sharp. It appears like a match made in heaven."

5.
She's Already Taken His Name!

On Twitter, that is. While her name on Twitter is "Jessa Duggar," her handle is @JessaSeewald. Seems she's already planning for the future!
