Jessa Duggar May Not Be Able to Handle Jinger Duggar Moving to Los Angeles

We’ve learned plenty about the Duggars over the years thanks to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar bringing their kids on to the scene with shows like 19 Kids and Counting. Now, the kids who were once just teens are growing up fast, and we’ve all developed our favorites as they’ve married off and started living their own lives. Fans seem to love Jinger Duggar, as she’s always struck viewers as one of the more rebellious members of the family. And it seems she and husband Jeremy Vuolo are making a decision we’ve never seen from a Duggar before — and that’s that they’re moving to the West Coast.

Jessa Duggar is extremely close with sister Jinger — and we wouldn’t be surprised if she has a hard time with the move. Here’s why.

Jinger has always dreamed of life in the big city, and now she’s making it happen

If there’s one member of the Duggar family who’s spoken of their hopes and dreams of leaving Arkansas in pursuit of bigger and better things, it’s Jinger. We remember when Jinger mentioned she wanted to move to New York City long ago, Radar Online reports. Unfortunately, Michelle was quick to shut that idea down. “She meant that she wants to live closer to a city. We’re talking right near a city, but not New York City. Jinger meant she wanted to live 15 minutes from Walmart,” Michelle told the publication.

Now that Jinger’s married and is free to do as she pleases with husband Jeremy, the two are set to adventure out west. While they already made a big move to Laredo, Texas, they’re ready to experience city life in Los Angeles. As they said on their blog, “Through much prayer and counsel, the next step for our family is to relocate to Los Angeles to attend Grace Community Church as Jeremy pursues graduate studies at The Master’s Seminary.”

Jessa found it difficult when Jinger made the decision to move to Texas

If there’s any family member who may be having a hard time with Jinger’s move to Los Angeles, it’s certainly Jessa. Jessa and Jinger are incredibly close, and Us Weekly reminds us that when Jessa went on dates with Ben Seewald prior to their engagement, she would always choose Jinger as her chaperone so she wouldn’t feel left out of the spotlight. With just a year between them, Jinger and Jessa seemed to be an inseparable duo.

Us Weekly also explains that when Jinger announced she was moving to Texas, Jessa had mixed feelings here, too. “I’m thrilled for Jinger and Jeremy. I know they’re meant to be, but at the same time, I wish Jeremy wasn’t taking her so far away. … If I think about it, I get emotional, and I’ve already cried several times,” Jessa said when thinking about Jinger’s initial move. “When she’s gone, I’ll probably have a meltdown.” And if the Texas relocation was meltdown-worthy, we can’t imagine what Jessa thinks of Jinger’s next big move.

Is jealousy a factor? Some fans think so

Some fans think Jessa will indeed take issue with Jinger’s move to Los Angeles, but not because of how close they are. Instead, some seem to think that Jessa may actually be jealous of Jinger’s relocation. Considering how active the Duggar sisters are on social media and how frequently they post on each other’s Instagrams, it appears that Jessa has yet to post any congratulations to Jinger’s post about the move. “As far as reactions from the family go I noticed no one commented except Anna that they happy for them on social media,” one Reddit user noted.

There’s also been past speculation that Jessa may be jealous of Jinger, too. Inquisitr notes Jessa seemed to be hypercritical of a few aspects of Jinger’s home in Laredo for no reason, and it struck fans as Jessa being envious. We’ll have to wait and see if Jessa goes and visits Jinger in her California home in the future. Perhaps if Jessa really loves the Los Angeles sunshine, she and Ben will plan a move out there as well.
