‘Counting On’: The 1 Thing About Jinger Duggar’s Marriage That Annoys Some Fans

Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo have been married since 2016. Since then, the two have welcomed one daughter and seen a lot of change in their lives, including a major move from Texas to California. Although fans adore this little Duggar family, there is one thing about Duggar’s marriage that bothers some.

Duggar met Vuolo through Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald

Many of the Duggar women meet their future husbands at church, and some suspect that Jim Bob Duggar plays a large role in setting up his daughters. But Duggar’s story is a bit different; Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald were in Texas when they met Jeremy Vuolo, a pastor. Vuolo then came out to Arkansas to visit the couple, and he was introduced to Duggar. The two knew they both had feelings for each other, but it was a while before they would court. However, once Jim Bob Duggar gave his blessing, Vuolo and Duggar only courted for about a month before he proposed.

The two have been living a life that fans love to watch

Ever since Duggar and Vuolo wed, they’ve lived a more interesting life than most of her other family members. After the wedding, Duggar moved to Laredo, Texas with Vuolo, who was a pastor down there at the time. Almost two years after they wed, they welcomed their first child, a little girl named Felicity, in July 2018. Then, earlier this year, they moved across the country to start a new life in Los Angeles, California, so that Vuolo could take graduate classes. Since then, Duggar’s Instagram has been filled with new adventures and plenty of photos of her daughter.

Some are bothered by how often Duggar talks about Vuolo’s former job

Duggar seems over the moon with her life. She’s in love with her husband and excited to show her daughter so many different worldly adventures. But Vuolo, though very religious, comes from a different background than his wife. He was homeschooled for a while but attended public school his junior and senior years. He then went on to play soccer at Syracuse University and eventually became a professional goaltender for the New York Red Bulls. And some fans are bothered by how often Duggar talks about it.

“We get it! Jeremy used to be a goalkeeper,” one Reddit user wrote. The post received 105 votes, 99% of which agreed with the user’s sarcastic statement, which implied that Duggar talks too much about her husband’s soccer career. “Lol, how many times has she stated this now?” someone added. Others went on to discuss how short-lived Vuolo’s soccer career was and that Duggar talks about it far too much.

Many are excited that Duggar wants her daughter to play sports

Despite some acting snarky toward Duggar, many of her social media followers love that she wants her daughter to play soccer. The Duggar women weren’t allowed to play competitive sports growing up, so it’s nice to see that Duggar is raising her own daughter differently. And maybe she’s just extremely proud of her husband for living out his dreams; it’s possible Duggar’s dreams of having her own career were suppressed by her parents, and she’s glad at least one of them was able to do what he had always wanted.
