Counting On’s Abbie Duggar and her husband John Duggar are doing things a little bit different in their marriage. They aren’t following all of the same traditions that the rest of the Duggar family members do.
One of the main things that is different about them is that Abbie Duggar has a job. This isn’t the norm in the Duggar family. The two also had different courtship rules and were older when they decided to start courting.
There is a chance that Abbie Duggar’s job could be a problem for the Duggars, especially because this isn’t how the Duggar families usually work. This could cause some trouble between some of the Duggars.
How do the Duggars feel about Abbie Duggar working?
While the Duggar family hasn’t come out and said anything about Abbie Duggar’s job, we can speculate about how they really feel. Since John and Abbie Duggar got married, the Duggars haven’t spoken out about the couple’s courtship rules. They haven’t commented on anything else that the couple is doing differently so far.
This could be partially because we don’t see a lot from Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar anymore. The Duggar children definitely spend much more time in the spotlight thanks to Counting On and social media.
We don’t know if the Duggars would come out and say anything potentially inappropriate about Abbie Duggar having a job. They may have some private feelings about the whole thing. They might also be worried that her job will affect their future grandchildren if the couple decides to have children.
This certainly doesn’t seem to bother John Duggar at all. He and Abbie Duggar are really enjoying married life together. They seem to be supportive of each other. He hasn’t said anything negative about his wife’s job.
Overall, it seems like Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are happy that John and Abbie Duggar are together. They seem to like her and get along with her at family gatherings. We have yet to hear of any drama between John Duggar’s parents’ and his wife.
Do any of the other Duggar women work?
The matriarch of the Duggar family, Michelle Duggar, never had a chance to work. She homeschooled her 19 kids and stayed home with them full-time. Because of this, Jim Bob Duggar provided for their family.
So far, it seems like the Duggar daughters and daughters-in-law are following in their footsteps. They all stay at home with their children or are planning to once they have kids.
This could be a different story if the Duggars weren’t making an income from their show, Counting On. In addition, Anna Duggar, Jill Duggar Dillard, and Jessa Duggar Seewald have had several influencer jobs via social media. They post about a product and receive a check in return.
Jill Duggar Dillard does midwife work sometimes, but this is not nearly as full time or demanding as Abbie Duggar’s job must be. There is some question about whether Jill Duggar Dillard’s midwife license is legitimate too.
The Duggar women stay home with their children for a couple of reasons. First, they stick to the traditional family roles where the husband works and the wife stays home. Second, this aligns with their religious beliefs.
It’s not clear if the married Duggar girls have chosen to stay home with their children or not. They may have made the decision on their own. Another problem is that the Duggars don’t go to college, so they may have trouble finding a job that pays above minimum wage.
It doesn’t look like Abbie Duggar will be quitting her job now that she and John Duggar have tied the knot. She transferred her license from Oklahoma to Arkansas so that she is still able to work in her new home state.
Do you think that this could be a problem for the Duggar family going forward? How will this change if John and Abbie Duggar decide to have a baby? Let us know what you think in the comments!
