Most people are familiar with the Duggar family. They are known for the reality series 19 Kids and Counting which first aired in 2008. The show began when the family only had 17 children, and after having two more, the name was changed to the appropriate number. The large family is known for their religious values and modest attire. So what happens when one of them breaks this rule?
The show focused on the life of of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar as well as their massive family. The couple are devout Baptists who avoid birth control, allowing the number of children they have to be determined by God.
As well as practicing religion, and being home schooled, the children’s access to popular entertainment was limited. They were also dressed extremely modestly, with Michelle explaining that they are the second generation of modest dressers in the family. The girls are required to wear long sleeves and skirts, and to keep their hair long and open.
As inspired as Michelle is to keep her family dressing modestly, it’s impossible to impose your beliefs on your children. Some of Michelle’s daughters have been photographed wearing things unorthodox to their household such as snow pants, but Jinger Duggar took it one step further and the internet is losing its mind.
After the 23-year-old Jinger Duggar married Jeremy Voulo last year, it appears that she might be moving past the strict dress code that her parents had set for her. She is the first Duggar daughter to post a photo wearing a pair of shorts. Her hair is also pulled back into a ponytail.
Jinger has been photographed in shorts before, but that was part of a very conservative bathing suit. This is the first time that any Duggar girl has shown the skin below her knees and people are loving it. Lots of people don’t agree with the strict rules set for the Duggar children, and there are even forums where fans comment things such as ‘Wow, amazing! Maybe Jinger is finally free!’
She also previously broke the rule by wearing a loose tank top during a video post from her honeymoon. Who knows what Michelle might think about Jinger’s new fashion choices. After being such an outspoken person about the subject, it must sting a little when her daughters chose to make their own life choices.
