Justin Duggar recently proposed to Claire Spivey. Now, the two are happily engaged. They announced their courtship in September and then got engaged in November. Claire reveals that they courted for 14 months, even though they only shared about the courtship a couple of months ago.
Since the relationship has gone public, fans have been a bit surprised. This is because Justin was only 17 years old when they announced their courtship. They got engaged right when he turned 18. So, naturally, fans are wondering how prepared Justin is to provide for himself and Claire.
On a recent Instagram post from Claire, a fan comments and asks about how Justin Duggar paid for the ring. The follower writes, “I’m curious about who paid for the ring? Does he have a job or is he still in school?”
To this, Claire kindly replied, “Justin paid for the ring! 😀 Not a dime of it was someone else’s money. He is super motivated, and does well at his job. He’s been graduated for quite a while and has a full time job. He also worked part time while in school, so he’d be prepared to be on his own.”
Some fans are surprised to hear this, especially because of how young he is. Some fans assumed that his parents still provide for him in some ways. But, it looks like Justin is ready to care for himself.
What does Justin Duggar do for work?
As Claire mentions, Justin has a job. It’s unclear what he does for work, as the family has never shared that. But, it seems like his career is successful so far. After all, she says that he’s “prepared to be on his own.”
It’s possible that Justin works for his brothers. Several of his brothers work in construction. His sister Jana also does home renovations with the Duggar brothers.
It’s worth noting that the family gets paid for being on TLC, so Justin could have paid for the ring that way. But, it definitely seems like that’s not the only way he paid for it. Plus, there’s some controversy surrounding how the kids get their pay.
Maybe the couple will share more about Justin’s career in the future. Fans hope to learn more about them and see their relationship continue to grow. Fans are wondering if Justin will move to Texas or if Claire will be moving to Arkansas.
