Radar Online has been having a long series of Duggar related articles through the years. They posted again about Jinger Duggar’s desire to be in the big city and put up a clip of the Duggar girls speculating on what type of men they would want as husbands. Sounds like they’ve been reading Debi Pearl’s “Created To Be His Help Meet”
Here’s the article. It’s old, from last summer. Read it and tell us what you think.
Jinger Duggar Wants Out! Jim Bob & Michelle’s Daughter Has Big City Dreams
By Alexis Tereszcuk – Radar
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have said that they want all of their children to live close to them, but their 18-year-old daughter Jinger Duggar just might be the rebel in the family.
In this of the season premiere of 19 Kids and Counting, the older girls discuss their ideal mates and all Jinger says is that she wants out of their small Arkansas town.
“She might do good with a visionary spunky person, somebody that gives her coffee,” says about her sister’s ideal mate, but Jessa says it has to be outside of their small town.
“She doesn’t want to live three hours out from civilization,” and Jinger agrees.
“No! City please city please,” Jinger begs with a smile.
The deeply religious Duggar family has instilled their strong faith in their children and Jill tries to tell Jinger that God has a plan for her.
“If you didn’t get somebody like that the Lord can be working and teaching you something in that area.”
Jinger agrees with her and says “Yes that’s for sure; I need to work on my contentment!”
