Jessa Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting celebrated one month of marriage on Monday with her husband Ben Seewald. The newlyweds, who made news for abstaining from kissing until after they tied the knot on November 1st, shared a kiss on Instagram for their followers, commemorating their first month as husband and wife.

Jessa and Ben didn't share their first kiss at the altar like sister Jill Duggar did when she wed Derick Dillard in June. Instead she and Ben waiting until after the wedding ceremony, sharing their kiss in private instead.

"Today we're celebrating our 1 'monthiversary!' @ben_seewald, you're amazing! I'm so blessed to call you mine!" Jessa Duggar captioned her Instagram post.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are no doubt exhausted after marrying off two daughters in the past six months. That's a lot to take on--even if you have a hit show on TLC, and likely many hands to help prepare for said weddings. Rumor has it Jim Bob Duggar might be looking to marry off the couple's eldest daughter, too. Jana Duggar is 24, and thus far isn't even courting. (Duggar kids don't date--they court.) He and Michelle Duggar are reportedly trying to fix Jana up with Tim Tebow.

Might Jana Duggar be the next of the 19 Kids and Counting brood to tie the knot? One thing is for sure, however, and that is that the Duggar family has likely seen its last wedding for 2014. If Jana Duggar or any of the remaining siblings get married, it likely won't be until at least 2015.

Congratulations to Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald on their first month of marriage. Fans speculated that Jessa and Ben might have pregnancy news to share by this point, the way Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard did. They are expecting their first baby, and she shares updates on their pregnancy frequently--including photos of her growing baby bump.

It will be fun to see how Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald, as well as Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard, decorate their homes for their first Christmas as married couples.
