The Duggar girls never buy romance novels! This is another shocking fact besides not consuming alcohol. It is things like this that makes them different from the rest of the American youngsters. Once Jill had revealed that while she was working in the local fire department she saw several youngsters getting affected due to overconsumption of alcohol. No doubt, too much alcohol is always dangerous, but never touching the scotch bottle throughout one’s life is a big time challenge especially in the western world. However, all Duggar kids are successful in it.

13. Four Duggar girls are victims of child molestation


That’s a sad fact! In 2015, a report by the magazine InTouch Weekly, revealed that Josh Duggar, the eldest son of Duggar family molested his younger sisters when they were minors.

At that point, you’re shocked. I was shocked. I didn’t know. I didn’t understand this is what happened until my parents told me,” Jessa confessed. Jill Duggar, another victim of Josh’s molestation disclosed that she was totally shocked to know that the person whom she loved a lot had molested her. “And I had to make that choice to forgive him. You know, it wasn’t something that somebody forced, like, ‘Oh, you need to do this.’ You have to make that decision for yourself,” said Jill. There were tears in her eyes remembering the painful past.

We try to make it a habit to always cover the top of our shirt with our hand when we bend over. We don’t want to play the peek-a-boo game with our neckline,” a paragraph reads. They also confessed that, for them, their body is a special gift from God and it must be shared only with their future husband.
