Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s Followers Are Incredibly Confused By This Aspect of Dillard’s Advice to Husbands
Since Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar introduced their gigantic family on TV, fans of 19 Kids and Counting and now, Counting On, have watched in fascination. From their courtships to their dress code, the Duggars have certainly made a name for themselves. And now that the oldest “kids” of the group are quickly approaching (or already in) their 30s, fans love keeping up with them on social media.
Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, have proven to be one of the most interesting couples to watch. While they’re no longer featured on Counting On, Duggar insists on sharing all aspects of her life with those who follow her Instagram and blog. And it seems Dillard does the same, as he recently wrote love advice in a blog post for husbands to read. Oddly enough, fans are confused by one aspect of Dillard’s blog post, however. Here’s what they’re saying.
Derick Dillard recently posted his love advice for husbands
The Dillard Family blog has a wealth of information for anyone who’s curious about Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s life. From family photos to tours of their new home, they’re not shy about sharing everything. And when Duggar wrote a blog post about all the ways she shows affection to her husband, it seems fans hoped Dillard would write one from his perspective. Now, he did — and it’s titled, “Hot Love: How to Love Your Wife Like You Mean It.”
According to Dillard, it takes “desire” and “intentionality” in order to have a fantastic, long-lasting romance. ” Love often initially begins with physical attraction or likable personalities, but day-to-day love must also be a choice that we continually make,” he wrote. Dillard then added his list of ways husbands can show their wives how much they care. This includes being totally open about everything, leading the family spiritually, and showing affection inside and outside the home.
Jill Duggar’s followers are questioning this part of the advice
Dillard’s post for husbands is long, but fans took to Duggar’s Instagram post to ask her about one specific aspect of it. Dillard wrote, “Have lots of good sex! You both need this time together regularly (5-6 times (or more) a week is a good start). Guys, you need to keep yourself ‘joyfully available’ for your wife, because only you can fulfill certain desires she might have.” Since the Duggars don’t believe in birth control and the couple only has two kids, many asked Duggar if this part of Dillard’s essay was true.
“How are you guys having sex 5-6 times a week and you aren’t pregnant again?? You guys don’t believe in birth control so there are some lies in this somewhere,” one of Duggar’s followers questioned. Another wrote, “5 to 6 times a week and no more babies? Must be using birth control which I thought was a no-no.”
Can Duggar have any more children?
There’s been lots of speculation that the reason Duggar and Dillard only have two kids is that Duggar can’t have any more children. Like her mother and sisters, Duggar had two extremely risky and difficult home births that resulted in C-sections. When she was in labor with her first son, she was transferred to a hospital and endured 70 hours of labor before the C-section took place. As one Reddit user wrote regarding her circumstance, “Scar tissue builds and each cesarean is more complicated than the last. Many doctors don’t recommend trying for any more children after three c sections.”
Dillard and Duggar have still discussed pregnancy recently with their followers, however, so perhaps they are using birth control and waiting for the right time to expand their family. On Instagram Live, they both confirmed Duggar isn’t pregnant — but they seemed to allude that it’s still possible. These two have also mentioned the possibility of adopting a child before, too, so perhaps that’s their next move.
Duggar’s followers may not all abide by Dillard’s rules for keeping marriage sacred, but we certainly respect the couple’s openness and willingness to share!
