The Duggar Kids Are Starting To Distance Themselves From The Family
Counting On fans have seen some of the Duggar kids distancing themselves from the family. According to reports, the Duggar kids are starting to realize the wrongdoings of their parents. Apparently, Jill Duggar has estranged herself from the Duggar family for years. According to Jill, they decided to leave due to the lack of freedom they had during the show. “We ended up finding out we didn’t have as much control over our lives as it related to the show and stuff, as we felt like we needed,” Jill said. “It was a really difficult decision, but something that we knew we needed to do for our family,” she added.
Jill’s move was also followed by Jinger Duggar in 2016, where she and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, moved to Los Angeles. Justin Duggar also moved to Texas with his wife, Claire Duggar. There are also reports stating that Justin left his father’s real estate business and joined the Spivey family’s construction business.
