Jessa Duggar has a history of being one of her family’s most reserved, unassuming members.
Jessa has largely avoided controversy in recent years as scandal after scandal surrounded her loved ones.
She also succeeded in maintaining cordial relations with her extremely traditional parents for the majority of that time.
Jessa kept up the act of the responsible daughter even when Jill Duggar severed connections with her parents and Amy Duggar came out against the culture of abuse that her uncle had long supported.
But now fans suspect Jessa’s relationship with her parents may have hit a rough patch.
Some fans believe Jessa has become the latest Duggar child to cut off contact with her folks.
And remarkably, the rift that allegedly drove the two parties apart has nothing to do with the Josh Duggar child pornography scandal.
Instead, it has to do with Jinger Duggar’s forthcoming memoir, which is set for release in January.
Yes, Jinger is about to make her literary debut with a book entitled Becoming Free Indeed.
The title refers to the so-called Free Jinger movement that exploded on social media during Jinger’s teen years.
Insiders say Jinger’s parents are worried about the book, as they’re concerned about possible damage to their reputation.
And apparently, those fears have not been assuaged by the news that the book will focus on Jinger’s religious beliefs and not the recent controversies surrounding her family.
At one point in the book, Jinger realizes that she no longer believed in some of the teachings she had grown up with.
“I realized that some of what I had been taught was hurtful and untrue,” Jinger writes.
“I knew I needed to speak publicly about this because I promoted teachings that I now believe are damaging.”
Then Jinger throws fans a curveball by revealing that Jessa’s husband, Ben Seewald, helped her arrive at her new belief system.
“I noticed his church read the Bible in its entirety and preached scripture that way,” Jinger said of the mentoring that she received from her brother-in-law.
“I feel like now I’m in a much better place. I see God as amazing.”
Yes, Ben grew up in a spiritual tradition that differs from the Duggars in several important ways.
So what does all of this have to do with Jessa’s relationship with her parents?
Well, fans have noticed that Jessa appears to have distanced herself from her parents in recent years.
At first, it was widely believed that Jessa had angered her parents by siding with Jill, but now, a new theory has emerged:
Many suspects that Jim Bob and Michelle would turn a blind eye to the Seewalds’ beliefs as long as the theological rift was kept private.
But now, Jinger is about to expose the latest conflict among the Duggars, and Jim Bob believes it’s all Ben and Jessa’s fault.
It’s just the latest in a long, long line of bizarre controversies involving TV’s most effed-up family of fundies!
