JILL Duggar said she and her husband Derick Dillard sought couples therapy after feeling “desperate” about the “drama” with her famous family

In a joint interview with Derick, Jill told the outlet, “It was one of those things where we knew therapy was helpful, but until we got to the point where we were, like, desperate we didn’t venture to sign up for it

The couple, who married in 2014, share five-year-old son Israel and three-year-old son Samuel together

The former Counting On explained that the couple decided to seek help after going through “a lot of transitions” in their lives

Jill told the outlet: “There was just a lot of stuff we would work on and then learn to develop boundaries even with extended family,”

“[There is] a bit of drama there… At that point we were like, ‘We really need someone outside of the photo to talk about our lives to help us out. to sort things out ‘”

The couple starred alongside parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, as well as other famous family members, on the TLC show until they were kicked out of the series

Ever since she moved away from the famous family, Jill has rebelled against the strict rules her parents raised her and her 18 siblings

While the mother-of-two often breaks the modest family dress code, she has continued to push the boundaries by getting her nose pierced and cutting her hair short

Jill and Derick have also chosen to enroll their oldest son in public school, which goes against the Duggar tradition of homeschooling

Additionally, Jill revealed that she uses birth control even though her parents forbid preventing pregnancy in marriage

Earlier in February, the couple shocked fans when they opened up about their ‘good sex life’ in a video for their YouTube channel

As the family of four visited a number of local restaurants in the video, Derick asked their two young sons, ‘Do you know how you were born? We had a date and then you had started to grow in mom’s womb “

The father then commented: “We had four dates in one day, I think once”
