Jessa Duggar Admits She Shouldn’t Have Given Dating Advice in Her Book, Plans to Update It

“You guys didn’t really buy that crap, did you?!”

By Holly Rasmussen

Everyone’s favorite resting-bitchface Duggar is at it, again. Jessa recently spoke out about the tour she is doing this spring talking about her marriage, her family and other things. spoke with newlywed Jessa about her upcoming Southern Women Show tours. When asked if she had learning anything new about relationships since her and her sisters released their book, Growing up Duggar: It’s All About Relationships, Jessa pretty much admitted their relationship advice in the book was complete crap.

“We did write a section in there about dating and finding the right guy and all that,” Jessa said. “That was before any of us had walked that road. It was just advice that other people who had given us and things we assumed we would do when we came to that.”

So…basically she’s telling us she had no idea what she was talking about. When the book was written in early 2013, none of the girls had ever even been allowed in a room alone with a man, let alone been in a relationship. (Jessa began her courtship with Ben Seewald in fall 2013, and Jill and Derick Dillard began their courtship in 2014.)

Does anyone else feel like Jessa is just sticking it to the Duggar family rules any chance she gets? First, she got married in a blush-colored dress, which was kind of a slap in the face to her family’s emphasis on purity at marriage. Did you see the shocked look on Michelle’s face when Jessa announced she didn’t want a white dress? Classic. Next, she refused to have cake at her wedding and only served ice cream. Now, this– publicly calling out her family for spoonfeeding fans a heap ‘o’ crap.

But, have no fear, Jessa revealed that she and Jill are working on an additional chapter of the book that will likely discuss how to be a good wife. Hopefully the new chapter will address my two eternal questions. 1.) Why must Jill drive her husband to and from work every day? 2.) Why did Jessa marry a 19-year-old man child who has no skills or life experiences? I’m assuming the answers to both are because the Lord told them to, but I guess we’ll have to wait to find out.

  1. If Derick suffers from Epilepsy, that would be a pretty good explanation as to why someone else drives him to work. Some things we aren’t entitled to know, and shouldn’t pass judgment on.

  2. Do Jill and Derrik only have the one car? Because in that case it make perfect sense-Jill doesn’t want to be stuck carless all day. Otherwise, yeah, kinda odd.

  3. None of the girls have the right to talk about marriage. Cause they have NO freaking idea what bein “married” really means! They live in a Jim Bob bubble.

  4. Perhaps she should wait a bit before traveling and counselling people on marriage… You know gain some life experience first, but I guess she’s gotta pay the bills one way or another cause it certainly won’t be Ben!
