Now that she's married and officially out from under Jim Bob and Michelle's rules, Jinger (Duggar) Vuolo is doing what she wants -- specifically wearing pants. Yup, the intrepid newlywed has stepped out once again sans long, flowy skirt, making a statement once and for all that she's not going to live by the dress code she grew up with.

What's special about this photo, though, is that it's the first time Jeremy himself has documented his wife's pants-wearing shenanigans to social media, officially giving her his stamp of approval.

It shouldn't be a man's place to dictate what his wife can and cannot wear, and we're glad that Jinge seems to be living her jeans-clad truth.
