Jill Duggar’s Husband, Derick Dillard, Just Explained How He Keeps the ‘Hot Love’ Going in Their Relationship
The Duggars have kept reality TV viewers intrigued for years thanks to shows like 19 Kids and Counting and Counting On. We’ve seen Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s oldest kids grow from teens to adults, and along the way, we’ve also watched them court, marry, and start families of their own. And if there’s one member of the family who fans are the most intrigued by, it’s Jill Duggar.
Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, used to be featured on Counting On. But thanks to Dillard’s transphobic and homophobic Twitter activity, they were removed from the show and now share all of their thoughts and feelings via social media and their family blog. In addition to showing the public their home life, Duggar and Dillard also get quite candid about their marriage, too. And Dillard just wrote a blog post about how he keeps the romance going with his wife.
Jill Duggar wrote a blog post on how women should please their husbands
Duggar grew up in a family that believes men are the leaders of the household, and she’s since created a guideline that all wives can follow in order to make sure they’re keeping their husbands happy and fulfilled. In her blog post, “More Than Sex: How to Love Your Husband,” Duggar explains that she’s still very much in love with Dillard even five years after tying the knot. And part of the reason their love remains strong is because of a few rules she follows that are sure to keep things exciting in their romantic life.
According to Duggar, couples should have sex at least three to four times weekly. “And when you may not be able to actually have intercourse for a period of time or for health issues, find other ways to have fun and be intimate. Let your spouse know that you’re aways available,” she wrote. Additionally, she advices that wives should “serve” and “meet” their husband’s needs always, and they should also “be crazy” with their husbands whenever possible.
Derick Dillard also wrote about how husbands must keep the ‘hot love’ going
It seems Duggar’s post for wives was a hit, as Dillard just provided his own version on the Dillard Family blog, too. He titled his post, “Hot Love: How to Love Your Wife Like You Mean It,” and he goes into all of the tips and tricks he knows for keeping the love and romance flowing after years of marriage. According to Dillard, “Desire + intentionality = Hot love.” This means that while the desire for a working relationship and loving marriage has to be there, having a healthy love life is also something you must choose. “Love often initially begins with physical attraction or likable personalities, but day-to-day love must also be a choice that we continually make,” Dillard wrote.
His tips are quite similar to what Duggar wrote, too. Dillard encourages sex at least five to six times per week, and he also tells husbands that they must “be vigilant” since they’re the leaders of the home. Like his wife, he also thinks spouses should spend a decent amount of uninterrupted time alone each day, and he’s a big believer in showing affection to each other inside and outside the home.
All in all, Duggar and Dillard seem very happy together
Fans have plenty of opinions about Dillard and Duggar as a couple, but it seems they both do their best to make each other happy. They recently spent their five-year anniversary together and shared aspects of their date with their followers. And while not everyone was a fan of Duggar’s Kama Sutra book on display in this Instagram post, it seems she is living by the values she presented in her blog post.
We’re sure there will be plenty more photos on social media of these two kissing as well, which typically displeases fans. On this photo that Duggar posted of a friend’s wedding, she and Dillard are locking lips — and fans are unimpressed. “I could have done without the kissing picture of you and Derick…it was not your wedding,” a fan commented. Despite the critique, there’s plenty more PDA than where this came from.
Will fans love Dillard’s advice to husbands? We’ll have to wait and see — though there’s no doubt it’ll gain attention either way!
