No way! How could this be?! Jill Duggar only had “eyes” for Derick when they first began dating and she fell head over heels in love with her hubby, Derick Dillard – however, the big bombshell is that he may not have felt the same way she did. Derick Dillard is now stating that Jill (Duggar) Dillard was not Derick’s 1st true love – um, meaning girlfriend. Derick, at the age of 27 has just recently revealed that he did have other “lady friends” before he met and married Jill Duggar during the year of 2014, when she was staring in “19 Kids & Counting” – nearly 3 years ago. So, what’s the big deal?! Guys don’t usually marry the 1st woman they have a relationship
From what is posted on the Duggar’s very own Blog site, a book entitled “Growing Up Duggar” and which was entirely developed and written by Jana, Jinger and, of course Jill – all of whom are siblings in the Duggar family wrote this novel back in 2014 – and surprisingly, they have received an update regarding their work.
It’s good news for the 3 ladies – as this new version which includes a lot more info and perhaps photos have revealed “never-before-shared stories of courtship and marriage” by none other than Jill and her husband, Derick – along with Jessa and Ben Seewald.
The families blog site shares the below “excerpt” from and by Derick as a way of exciting their fans so they will want to buy one of the first copies of this newly revised and once again published novel.
“I had had a couple of girlfriends before meeting Jill, and chaperoning was new to me. But just because I had handled relationships one way in the past didn’t mean I couldn’t do it differently going forward.”
Wow! What a shocker and exactly how will Jill (Duggar) Dillard feel when this book is released to the public and everyone finds out about this new revelation?! Come on now! We are sure that Derick told his wife all about his past “life” during their courtship, however, as many of us are aware, most married women really don’t like to relive their husband’s past relationships with their former girlfriends and/or ex-wives.
However, we are completely confident that Jill has absolutely nothing at all to be concerned about. After she and Derick were married, their 1st baby was born – that being “Israel” who just had his 1st big birthday last month – and, as we have all read, Jill, Derick and baby Israel have kept super busy with their work as missionaries in the far away land of Central America. This way, Derick’s mind is focused on his family and his work, which means he has no time to think about his former loves – as the saying goes; “out of sight – out of mind” which is so true in this case, especially since they are all in another country, far away from home.
Many wives worry needlessly about old flames from their boyfriends or husbands, but, as we all know, Derick and Jill are both committed to each other.
