Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar's Visit With Derek & Jill Has Fans Outraged

It might not have been such a sweet reunion after all! Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar visited Jill and Derick Dillard in El Salvador recently, and while it looks like the whole family had a wonderful time, some fans have seriously been questioning the reason for the visit.


We learned over the weekend that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar visited their daughter and her adorable little family last week in Central America, where the Dillards are serving as long-term missionaries.

The family shared a bunch of pictures of their time together, and it was clear that 10-month-old Israel loved the time with his grandparents. But not everyone was happy about the impromptu visit -- some questioned why the former 19 Kids and Counting stars even went, given their sordid history in the media.

Because obviously, who was taking care of the other kids while the parents jetted off to be with Jill and Derick? Probably Jana, Jinger, and Joy Anna, who have been called "Stay-At-Home-Daughters" because they are legal adults who have decided to remain at home instead of getting married or otherwise venturing out on their own. 

Other critics have suggested that Jim Bob and Michelle never should have ventured outside of Arkansas given the fact that their eldest child, Josh Duggar, is currently in a long-term rehab center for his rumored sex addiction. You know the guy -- the one who single-handedly got his family's show canceled when it came out that he molested five underage girls (including four of his own sisters!) as a young teen. 

After that, he was caught with not one, but two Ashley Madison accounts, and he admitted to being unfaithful to his wife, Anna, the mother of his four children.

Because Jill's parents had no real reason to visit (according to Internet commenters), the only plausible explanation must be that she's pregnant. After all, Mrs. Dillard did post a photo of her hubby painting her toenails last week, and that's basically the same as a magazine cover announcing the pregnancy, right?

Or, you know, maybe they just had a nice family visit. With all the controversy surrounding the Duggars these days, it seems silly to me to manufacture it here.
