Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo live differently than most Duggars

Duggar and Vuolo were married in 2016, but they didn’t stay in Arkansas like the rest of the family. Instead, the two moved to Laredo, Texas, where Vuolo worked as a pastor. And less than three years after settling into Laredo, they moved to the West Coast. The two have been living in Los Angeles for a little more than a year, and it’s led them to live life with a bit more freedom than most other Duggars.

Duggar and Vuolo listen to mainstream music and watch television; Duggar also dyed her hair blonde and cut it much shorter, which is something she was not allowed to do as a child. Together, the two are raising their daughter with strong ties to their faith but are also allowing her to play with more mainstream, non-religious toys.

Critics of the show think the two are ‘pretentious’

Duggar and Vuolo’s Instagram account has changed over the past few months to mostly show staged, professional images of the two. It’s led some to believe that they’re becoming less relatable to fans, and Reddit users recently discussed that the two seem more pretentious than other members of the family.

“I think Jeremy’s office [in Laredo] was extremely pretentious. Also, the time that they took Joe and Kendra out to dinner was snobbish,” one user wrote. “I feel like they were less pretentious when they first got married and lived in their apartment, but once they moved into their house in Laredo, it started to go downhill,” another person wrote. “Both are pretentious,” someone else added.

The couple’s recent podcast had some calling them ‘conceited’

Besides critics thinking they’re pretentious, fans recently called out the couple for the way they addressed single people on their recent podcast. The two were trying to encourage those who were single (and wanted to be married) to keep the faith, but it rubbed some fans the wrong way. “Holding up your life as an example to others seems very conceited to me,” someone wrote on Duggar’s Instagram photo promoting the podcast. “I don’t need a husband for happiness,” someone else wrote.

Many still love Duggar and Vuolo’s storyline

Though some have taken issue with Duggar and Vuolo’s lifestyle, many still love the couple. The two recently announced that they’re expecting another baby in November, and fans are excited to see the newest addition to the couple’s family.

Amid negative comments on Duggar’s post about the marriage discussion, there were many people who were happy to hear her words about her own struggle with being single and felt she was relatable to fans.
