When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one person to dissolve the beard— keep the ‘stache, at least for a day or two. ‍ . A decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. . We hold these truths to be self-evident, that beards can be great things. They can help protect the skin from harmful UV rays, as well as wind, chafing and traumatic injury. Big beards can be very attractive and handsome. He liked it, I loved it. . But who would’ve guessed that the daily upkeep for big beards could be so demanding? You’ve got to use special beard shampoos, and then apply beard oil toward the roots so your skin doesn’t dry out. It’s advantageous to use beard wax and a beard comb to shape it and keep it from sticking out in every direction. Then there’s time devoted to trimming, shaping and fading. No man wants a routine that requires him to spend more time on his hair than his wife is spending on hers. . Whenever any Beard becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new facial hair, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. . Even though I was sad to see it go, it is nice to see more of his handsome face again. ☺️ When removing his beard, he shaved it off in sections, trying out nearly every beard variety and style under the sun. He ended on this, and we thought it would be fun to keep the mustache for a few days before shaving it off. ‍ Henry likes it. Ivy’s like “Meh.” Spurgeon said “Put your beard back on!” . Beard plans moving forward? He says he is not opposed to growing out a big beard again one day, but for now he just needed a little break. Shaving clean each day also takes time, so for minimal upkeep, he says he prefers a short beard— No need for wax or oils or beard combs. Every few days, just shave the upper cheeks and neck (because neck beards are no bueno), and trim the length every week or two. Done. Easy. . So that’s the plan. There’s the update, not that anyone was even asking.

Jessa and Ben appear to have a seriously wholesome relationship. They met when Ben was the new kid at church at just 17 years old. And it was the rest of her family who helped facilitate their relationship, as they invited Ben over for dinner so he could get to know Jessa a bit better.

Now, years later, Jessa and Ben are still going strong. And Jessa frequently features Ben taking care of their three kids on her Instagram. On Sept. 13, 2019, Jessa posted a solo photo of Ben with a handlebar mustache that her followers loved even more, too. The caption was all about his facial hair, though she mimicked the Declaration of Independence. And she also noted how much she loves his beard.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that beards can be great things,” Jessa captioned the post. “They can help protect the skin from harmful UV rays, as well as wind, chafing and traumatic injury. Big beards can be very attractive and handsome. He liked it, I loved it.”

Jessa and Ben posted photos from their grocery store date

Back in 2019, Jessa took a serious hiatus from posting photos of herself to the ‘gram. But now, she’s back. And on Feb. 20, she posted a photo of her and her husband in the aisles of a grocery store.

“Let’s be real— I live off grocery pickup most of the time,” Jessa captioned the post. “But grocery shopping is never more enjoyable than when we do it together.”

Many followers loved the photo and thought it was sweet how Jessa and Ben can seemingly have a blast doing mundane tasks together. And others had questions.

“Who took this picture? Another shopper?” one follower asked.

To that, Jessa answered, “Propped the iPhone up on a ledge and used the 3-sec timer.”

Just like his sweet wife, Ben also posted his own photo of his adventures shopping for food.

“Just grabbing some smoked paprika, combing the fresh produce for sales, and picking up a few bags of locally roasted coffee. I love shopping with you @jessaseewald!” he captioned his photo of him and Jessa holding up bags from Whole Foods. “Now let’s get in the kitchen and make something together.”

Fans think Ben looks shockingly different with a clean shave

While many of Jessa and Ben’s followers focused on their date, others were shocked to see Ben looking so clean-shaven. And others even commented on his slimmer physique.

“He looks so young with the clean shave!” one follower commented on Jessa’s post.

“Bens losing weight! Looking good you two,” yet another added.

“I had to do a double take- Ben looks different!” another follower wrote.

Others commented on Ben’s look on his post, too.

“Wow you look so different without the beard,” one of Ben’s followers noted.

It looks like fans are all in agreement: Ben’s looking different without the beard, and all that clean eating might be changing up his looks, too. Either way, we’re happy Jessa and Ben are making the most of their grocery store date nights. We’re excited to see what else they come up with in the future.
