Jessa Duggar Breaks Silence After Rumors That She & Ben Seewald Had Sex in Church

I don't know about you, but when I heard the rumor that Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald were caught having sex at church at their wedding, I first thought, yeah right, and then I thought, well, so what? They're married and young and hot for each other. Isn't that a positive thing?


Jessa has broken her silence days after an alleged wedding guest named Mary B. claimed on the blog My Life as a Stay at Home Wife and Mom that Jessa's younger sister Jinger caught the 19 Kids and Counting stars doing it when she went to retrieve them for the reception. Jessa responded on Instagram in the best and classiest way possible.

Instead of defending herself and going into rage mode -- and she had every right to do so -- Jessa took the high road by simply posting this passage from the Bible:

Jessa captioned her photo with a line taken from the passage: "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."

You don't need to be a follower of any particular faith to see how fantastic a response this is from a young, but obviously wise, woman. She is choosing to turn the other cheek and let the rumors fall where they may -- she doesn't feel it necessary to even address such nonsense other than to say that she plans on continuing to spread positive energy and not get caught up in negativity.

And why should she? She's a happy newlywed in a wonderful relationship who has her entire life ahead of her. Only she and Ben know what truly happened behind closed doors -- and anyone who wants to gossip about them is going to get bored pretty quickly if neither Jessa nor Ben is taking the bait and responding with anger.

Bravo, Jessa. Stellar response. Now go and have an amazing honeymoon period without giving this silliness another thought.

What do you think of Jessa's response to rumors that she and Ben had sex in church?
