‘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.
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.
