Most people recognize the Duggar name from the family’s former TLC reality show, 19 Kids and Counting. Of course, the title of the show got people’s attention, since having that many children in this day and age is pretty rare. After all, most of the people who tuned in on the show wanted to know how the Duggar parents got through the day making sure that all the children were fed and clothed. Keeping up with all those children was fascinating for most viewers, since all the activity that was featured on the show indicated that it was easy for one or more of the children to get lost each time the Duggar family went on an outing.
The Duggars came across as a devout and conservative Christian family, but further investigation proved that the parents weren’t keeping up with all their children the way they should have been. Their oldest son Joshua, was accused of child molestation, and some of the victims were his own sisters. This story made headlines, and TLC pulled 19 Kids and Counting off the air.
Although this scandal is well known in the media, there are also a few Duggar family secrets you may not be aware of. Here are 12 other reasons why the Duggars aren’t the people you may have thought they were.
12 The Duggars Are Against Birth Control
11 Josh’s Wedding Kiss Was “Enhanced”
10 Jessa and Her Husband “Made Out” On Their Wedding Day
9 Jill Duggar Believes In Quick Engagements
8 The Duggar Family Supports Gun Rights
7 The Duggars Are Overprotective
6 The Duggars Are Against Gay Marriage
5 Jessa and Ben Seward “Lived Together” Before Marriage
4 Michelle Duggar Supports “Forced Sex” In Marriage
3 The Duggars Got “Steamy” Before Marriage
2 The Duggars Have “Rules” That Should Have Prevented Sexual Abuse
1 The Duggars Use Violence Against Their Children
In the same police report that revealed that the oldest Duggar son sexually abused children, it was also revealed that Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar use violence to discipline their children. There were witness claims to support this, including a claim by Joshua, who stated that he was “spanked” by his parents. Joshua also stated that all of the Duggar children have been spanked, and revealed that his parents “have a rod.” The justification for this is likely the Biblical reference that states that, “sparing the rod” means that children will be undisciplined.
