The Duggars have been beset by inner discord previous to Josh’s arrest, and today, household feuds that beforehand would have made tabloid headlines are being overshadowed by the continuing drama surrounding Josh.
Living proof, Jinger Duggar simply threw some main shade at Jessa’s husband, Ben Seewald, and hardly anybody observed.
Ben, as you in all probability know, was solely the second suitor to marry into the Duggar clan after the household discovered fame by way of their first TLC actuality present.
And it appears Jinger is considerably skeptical of his motives for courting for her older sister.
Ben and Jessa met when he attended Sunday providers on the Duggars’ church.
And apparently, that was a standard observe for eligible Christian singles in these days, most of whom appeared to need a chunk of the household fortune.
Jim Bob’s daughters have been apparently nicely conscious of the likelihood that they is perhaps utilized by over-eager younger man hoping for an opportunity to seem on tv.
Regardless that Ben was one of many shady characters who confirmed up out of nowhere with a sudden curiosity in becoming a member of the Duggars’ congregation, evidently Jessa was smitten along with her future husband from the very begin.
However whereas Jessa might have been all-in on Ben from the very begin, it appears her sisters had some critical doubts.
Jinger appeared on the Dinner Occasion With Jeremy Fall podcast final week, and he or she mentioned all the sketchy suitors whom she and her sisters encountered within the early years of their fame.
“There have been loads of guys who got here round, generally they’d come go to the household or go to our church — that was a great ‘in’ for some guys,” Jinger revealed.
“They thought, ‘Oh, if I come to your church, that’s my in,’” she added.
Jinger went on to clarify that guys who confirmed up within the pews unannounced have been usually disregarded instantly.
Nevertheless, Jessa was smitten with Ben from the second she noticed him within the conregation — and the remainder is historical past.
“It simply felt so weird as a result of it’s like, ‘who’re you? I don’t know you,’” Jinger mentioned of the strangers who pursued her and her sisters in these days.
“The connection facet of issues wasn’t even there, it wasn’t like ‘Oh look, I’ve been hanging out for some time and get to know your loved ones after which we’ll see if something occurs,’” she defined.
“They’d say to my household, my dad and mom or one thing, ‘Oh yeah, I’m so thinking about your daughter.”
Jinger by no means talked about Ben by title within the interview, nevertheless it’s not possible not to think about him primarily based on Jinger’s description.
In any case, that is precisely how Ben and Jessa met!
Jessa detailed their first encounter in a 2017 weblog submit that she penned on the event of Ben’s birthday.
“After I first laid eyes on you, a dapper seventeen-year-old younger man, I by no means might’ve dreamt of what the long run held for us. It was 10:15 am on a Sunday morning,” the Counting On star wrote.
“I used to be late for church as I got here scurrying by way of the door with a few siblings in tow. Within the midst of the commotion I noticed you, the ‘new man,’ and our eyes met for a second…” Jessa continued.
From there, Ben fed Jessa some BS about how he was within the space as a result of he was “occupied with” making use of to the College of Arkansas at Fayetteville.
Ben had made a weekend journey from his native Sizzling Springs, Arkansas with the intention to try the college, and when it got here time to attend Sunday providers, he simply occurred to finish up on the similar home of worship that the Duggars attend.
After all, Seewald by no means ended up enrolling on the college, however he did not must, as he married into the then-wealthy Duggar clan not lengthy after his first assembly with Jessa.
So yeah, it is actually not exhausting to see why Jinger is perhaps somewhat bit suspicious of the person’s motives.
