Jill (Duggar) Dillard and her husband Derick Dillard can thank couples therapy for teaching them tips for dealing with the family “drama” after they left Counting On in 2017 In a new interview with Us Weekly , Jill revealed that things had not “improved significantly” since she and Derick decided to stop filming for the TLC show, but that this therapy had helped them deal with the change in family dynamics.
“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 out to sign up, “Jill said in a joint interview with her husband, whom she married in June 2014 and has since welcomed her sons Israel, 5, and Samuel 3.” It’s been very useful to learn to communicate as a couple and to know your triggers “
The couple first decided to get outside help after “a lot of transition” in their life “There were just a lot of things we were working on and then learning to develop boundaries with even the family. widened, ”Jill explained.“ [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 sort things out ‘”
After deciding to quit her family’s show, a 19 Kids and Counting spin-off also starring sisters Joy-Anna, Jessa and Jinger, Jill said there was “no a lot of support “from those close to her when she decided to take the step that she felt was best for her family” We were ready to go and we were firmly convinced to go… There are certainly problems here “, she added “We really feel that we are now in a healthy place for our families and that we are in control of our lives”
When it comes to her family, however, Jill admitted that “some people are more supportive than others” and that with a family of her size the support “comes and goes” over time. “Each family has a drama and so when you have so many people giving opinions or whatever it can get crazy, ”she said
Derick has sharply slammed Jill’s father Jim Bob Duggar online, repeatedly accusing him on social media of failing to pay his kids the share of the family show’s income In an October 2020 YouTube video, Jill confirmed the tension, saying there was “some distancing” with the Duggars. “We’re not on the best terms with some of my family,” he said. she said “We’ve had a few disagreements, but we’re definitely working on healing and restoration, but we kind of need to take some time and heal”
