In the new post, Jill reveals that she and Derick have reached a special milestone in their relationship. She says that her mother-in-law reminded her that they have been engaged for 7 years.
In the comments, Derick responds, “I love you, babe! You’re my favorite, and I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since we were engaged! Crazy how time flies when you’re having fun with your best friend!”
Duggar fans may remember seeing Jill and Derick’s courtship and wedding on the family’s TLC show Counting On. Derick’s proposal was also featured on the show. It took him months to plan how he was going to pop the question.

Jill and Derick’s engagement
At the time, Derick explained the plans he had made. He had someone write a song for the occasion and used that as a way to propose to his then-girlfriend. He talks about the special day, saying, “We went on a lunch date to a Mexican restaurant and then we walked around in a park setting and the guy who wrote the song was just sitting on a park bench, nothing out of the ordinary. He was like, ‘Oh, hey, you look like a nice couple. I think I have a song for you guys.'”
It took Jill a second to realize that the song was written just for them. It has some undeniable details in it. Then, Derick finally started his proposal speech, talking about how much he loves Jill. The ring he got for Jill was from Israel because she likes the Holy Land so much.
Now, the pair has been happily married since March 25, 2015, and they have been open about how they keep their marriage strong. Fans are glad to see both of them so happy in their marriage.
