Duggar Kissing Challenge Continues as Jill & Derick; Josh & Anna Participate in PDAs (PHOTOS)

Jessa Duggar, Ben SeewaldThe Duggar's kissing challenge continues! The 19 Kids and Counting family took some heat last week after they deleted photos of gay couples kissing from their Facebook page, but that doesn't mean they're done with PDAs. The most recent participants are Derick and Jill Dillard, who responded to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's challenge to share sweet (wedded) kissing photo on social media.


The whole thing started when newlyweds Ben and Jessa Seewald shocked the 1000-plus guests at their wedding a couple of weeks ago by foregoing the traditional kiss at the alter. The pair had been saving their first kiss for their wedding day, and to the chagrin of many attendees, they opted to share it in private, just the two of them.

Four days later, Jessa shared this steamy embrace on her Instagram page, but was met by backlash that she share such an intimate husband-and-wife moment.

It's great living life with your best friend! @ben_seewald

Then in full support of their daughter and son-in-law, Jim Bob and Michelle copied their posed kiss and released a statement about how special physical affection is in a marriage, and on Facebook asked other married couples to do the same. That's when they got hit by the same-sex marriage kisses stuff. Whoops.

Anyway, not to be deterred by the whole gay-couples-kissing thing, the rest of the Duggar fam showed their support by posting pictures of their kisses. Here's one Derick Dillard shared of a smooch between him and wife Jill Duggar.

He didn't caption it, but did share these sentiments on Twitter:

And of course, the eldest Duggar, Josh (who was also the first of the 19 to be married), shared this sweet snap of him and his wife Anna Duggar in an intimate embrace soon after "Kiss Gate" erupted.

We're still newlyweds! @annaduggar #6years @ben_seewald @jessaseewald #19Kids

Agree with the Duggars' strict stances on dating, courtship, marriage, gay marriage or not ... you have to admit these people are kissing fools once they've said, "I do."

What do you think of of the Duggar Kissing Controversy?
