Jill Duggar Dillard cutting ties with her family members! Is she going against her religious family?
Jill Duggar Dillard from TLC reality television shows ’19 Kids and Counting’ is the daughter of Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar. From a few years, her relationship with her family changed significantly.
She was a big part of the series which documented the highly-religious, ultra-conservative Duggar household from 2008 until its cancellation in the year 2015.
After that, she featured in Counting On until 2017 when she decided to quit the show. She revealed that she and her husband Derick Dillard felt that they lost the power to dictate their own lives. Jill said,
“Our control to choose what jobs we were allowed to accept and even where we were allowed to live was taken away from us. The first few years of our marriage, we spent time and money working towards opportunities only to hit a dead end when we’d be told, ‘Well, you’re not allowed to do that.'”
Since leaving the show, she has begun to embrace a life without some of the many rules she was raised to strictly adhere to.
Jill Duggar Dillard on birth control
Jill Duggar Dillard has revealed that she uses birth control. This shocked the fans as it is a move not condoned by her ultra-religious family. She said,
“Growing up, it was ingrained in me that if you don’t have as many kids as you’re able to, that there’s something wrong with that. But there was a shift in me where I felt like it wasn’t wrong if you decide as a couple that it’s best for you to wait.”
She said that children are a blessing but that does not mean anyone should have as many kids as possible. Jill goes against the beliefs of her family who forbid all physical contact with the opposite sex before marriage, “revealing” clothes (meaning anything exposing shoulders or knees) as well as dancing, alcohol, and non-religious music.
Not just on birth control but she has also had went against the rules and has gotten a nose ring, enjoyed the occasional cocktail or glass of wine, worn jeans, and even modeled modest swimwear.
“I don’t expect everyone to understand why we’re making the decisions that we are. “So it’s alright if they don’t agree with me.”
