‘Counting On’ Fans Discussed Where They Think Jill Duggar Will Be in 10 Years — She Will ‘Divorce Derick’

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are one of those Counting On couples of which fans have very mixed opinions. Though the two aren’t on the show anymore, people still keep up with Duggar’s life through social media. Some people love Duggar and think she’s doing a great job of raising her family, while others dislike her and her marriage to Derick Dillard. Recently, fans tried to predict where Duggar will be in the next decade, and many of them are hoping she isn’t still with Dillard.

Duggar and Dillard left ‘Counting On’ in 2017

After 19 Kids and Counting was canceled following Josh Duggar’s sexual abuse scandal, TLC launched a new show called Jill and Jessa: Counting On, which followed the lives of the two newly married Duggar daughters. Now, the show is only called Counting On and follows pretty much all of the married Duggar children — except Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard. In 2017, Duggar tweeted negative comments about TLC stars Jazz Jennings, Jeremiah Brent, and Nate Berkus. It didn’t go over well with fans, and people wanted Dillard fired from the show. He reportedly took his family off the show on his own terms.

Fans think Duggar’s family doesn’t like her husband

Though Jim Bob Duggar is the one who introduced Dillard to his daughter, fans now think that the Duggars don’t get along with Dillard at all. Duggar and Dillard have been missing from various family parties, and they never seem to post photos together with Duggar’s family. People have suspected that Dillard’s remarks caused tension among the family for getting Duggar fired from the show, though nothing has been confirmed about a rift between Dillard and his wife’s family.

We had a wonderful 5yr. anniversary weekend in Branson, MO! We stayed at a bed and breakfast, then hung out at Silver Dollar City part of the time and saw our friends @southernraisedbandmusic perform. . . Derick surprised me with an amazing dinner (& lovely view!) @thekeetercenter at #collegeoftheozarks (highly recommend! Such a neat place! ) #hardworku @sierrasaffle . . . Thanks @datingdivas for the fun games and ideas! If you don’t know about them, check them out!! They’ve got lots of fun, clean, date/marriage tips and ideas! ❤️ . . We ended our trip with a fun afternoon at the movies watching #toystory4 lol . . Thanks @cldilla & Bawpaw for keeping the boys! . . ( Note: We are not recommending the Kama Sutra. We believe marriage is ordained by God and husbands and wives should filter everything they read and hear together through the lense of the Bible and not practice anything unbiblical. The little book pictured is a modern, smaller, cleaner, edited version that doesn’t focus on spiritual aspects, homosexual, or other extramarital relationships, and again, we don’t take everything in there either as the truth. It is always good to be aware and careful of what we allow into our minds, hearts and marriages. We’ve not read the actual Kama Sutra and only promote biblical marriage (i.e. between a man and woman who are married). We just wanted to clarify since there has been a lot of discussion after this post.❤️)

Some suggest she might divorce Dillard in the next 10 years

Reddit users took it upon themselves to predict where Duggar might be in the next decade, and it seems they’re hoping she works up enough courage to divorce her husband. “Jill may develop enough independence to divorce Derick,” the original poster wrote. “I think as her kids grow up and as she becomes independent, she will make tons of friends and realize she can live life, if she so chooses, without both Derick and [Jim Bob’s] influence on her.” Others disagreed though, suggesting that Duggar has become far too co-dependent to ever divorce Dillard. “Jill has a cushy life compared to most people, so that underlying desire to change probably isn’t there,” one user wrote.

The Duggars don’t traditionally believe in divorce

Even if Duggar decided she truly wanted to leave Dillard, she probably never would for one major reason: Divorce is sacrilege. Marriage is sacred, and the Duggars believe that once you marry, you marry for life, since God would consider divorce a sin. Duggar is extremely religious (she doesn’t even have a television in her home), and she would likely never be able to go through with a divorce for fear of what others in her family and her church would think of her. Plus, there has been nothing that confirms that she and Derick truly aren’t happy; it’s mostly been speculation from fans.
