If fans of a reality TV family remain fascinated, it is the Duggars. We remember that they first appeared on the scene more than ten years ago and that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were the Christian fundamentalist stars who put their 19 children in the spotlight. Now their children grow up quickly and develop their own fans. From Instagram to Twitter to TLC’s Counting On, fans enjoy seeing what the older Duggar men and women are up to.
Jinger Duggar recently had some very important announcements to really get her fans talking. There have been rumors in the past that Jim Bob and Michelle completely rejected her – and could it be true? This is what we know.
Jinger has always been seen as one of the more rebellious Duggar kids
As a whole, the Duggar are not a rebellious group. We have seen the children grow up and abide by all the rules of their parents, including wearing modest clothes and no physical touch during the courtship. It seems that there is a Duggar that stands out from the rest, and that is Jinger. Over the years, fans have seen Jinger evolve and break a few rules, especially with her now husband, Jeremy Vuolo.
OK! Magazine reminds us when Jeremy introduced Jinger, they gave each other a forehead hug, which is a huge sin in the Duggar family. And when the two made the decision, it was also said that Jinger might have used birth control because it took nearly a year before they announced their pregnancy. Many of the Duggar women have gone to a more modern dress (surprisingly, Michelle has too), but the possible use of birth control would certainly not appease the matriarch and patriarch of the family.
Rumors spread that Jim Bob doesn’t get along with Jinger’s husband
Jeremy and Jinger seem the perfect match, but Jim Bob may not seem to be Jeremy’s biggest fan. Romper reminds us that Jim Bob Jeremy grilled during an episode of Counting On about how they were going to afford Jinger’s love of thrift store. Jeremy seemed totally unbelieving that he would be asked such a stupid question. Not only that, but when Jeremy and Jinger were planning to move to Laredo, Texas (where they are currently located), Jim Bob did not seem impressed at all. The uncomfortable conversation that followed gave the fans an idea of what the father and son-in-law really think about each other. As Jim Bob said, “I just don’t think they’re in the place to trade the spit.”
We now know that Jinger and Jeremy are doing very well in Texas without the help of their parents, but will Jim Bob and Michelle ever go there? Romper notes that fans seem to think they are not visiting Jinger, even when they are in state, and they support the idea that they have rejected her.
Jinger and Jeremy are now moving far away to Los Angeles
If Jim Bob and Michelle weren’t happy with Jinger’s move to Texas, we can’t imagine how she feels now that she has announced she’s moving to Los Angeles. As Jinger and Jeremy said on their blog: “In recent days, God has made it overwhelmingly clear that he is leading us from Laredo. Through much prayer and counsel, the next step is for our family to move to Los Angeles to join the Grace Community Church to visit while Jeremy graduates from The Master’s Seminary. “
The couple then said that “Leaving Laredo in July is one of the hardest things we’ve ever done; our friends here have become like family.” It looks like there’s no question of leaving Arkansas in the dust. Could this be a sign that Jinger and her parents no longer speak? It certainly can be.
