JINGER Duggar and her husband Jeremy Vuolo have admitted they have “difficulties” with her rebel sister Jill and brother-in-law Derick Dillard.
Former Counting On star Jill, 29, has rebelled against her family's strict rules in recent years, which has led to an ongoing spat with parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
Jinger, 27, and husband Jeremy, 33, opened up about their rebellious family members, revealing they had a "great relationship” with the couple.
Speaking to Us Weekly, Jeremy said: “They’re working through some things. We’re giving them their time to do that … but we’ve got a great relationship [with them].”
He added, “You always hope that families are united and, you know, the family is strong. There’s going to be difficulties in every family [and] I think that’s part of being in the public eye.
"So many families go through different issues, especially as children are growing [up], and this family happens to be in the public spotlight. And so, they work through it.”
Jill has become the most rebellious member of the Duggar family in recent years.
Her parents, Jim Bob, 55, and Michelle, 54, famously raised their 19 children with a conservative and strict upbringing.
They are fundamentalist Baptists who have set strict rules of modesty for their kids and grandkids, though Jill and her husband Derick Dillard, have been known to break them.
The couple have engaged in behaviors such as drinking and sending their children to public school.
The pair have even spoken publicly about their sex life, emphasizing the divide between Jill and the rest of her family.
In February, however, Jill and Derick seemed to look past the family drama when they attended her younger brother Justin's wedding.
The married couple left their two kids behind to spend some time at the special event in Texas.
Despite distancing themselves from the reality show and Jill's fundamentalist family, Jill posted a selfie of herself and Derick on social media and congratulated her brother and his new bride, Claire.
