Every time I see a picture of the boys I can't help but think that both of their parents were nice looking when they were young and honestly not bad looking now, the boys .... aren't. They just look like... I don't know how to describe them. Y'all talk about their hair line but it's more than that they look like they are just not quite bright. I feel bad about making fun of their looks because they can't help it...yet here I am.

Milquetoast? I think they look like that- it’s odd to describe. They have no VIBRANCE. Josiah had a little, as did Joe but they are so YOUNG and they look beaten down, their completions are sallow....no life in their eyes.

I think that's what it is. The Duggar boys are this doughy, amorphous blob going through the motions of life. There's no passion or fire or enthusiasm for anything.

Yes. And in these photos of JB and Michelle when they were young you can tell they WERE really happy and enthused. Even now JB looks happy when he’s with Michelle. The J boys rarely look as happy about anything.

They could just set a bobble head figure next to Jim Bob, and it would serve the same purpose as Michelle. Watch one of their talking heads without sound.

Of course, when JB and M were young, they didn't have 18 siblings, didn't have JB and M as parents, hadn't been forced through Gothard's Garden of Torment for Children and Young People, hadn't been blanket trained and whipped with plumbing materials,  went to high school, wore regular fairly fashionable clothes (according to their lights), got to be cheerleaders, got to date as teenagers, got to wear bikinis, didn't have to take an "accountability partner" everywhere, got to pick out and marry the person they chose not the person some old religion-and-personal-dynasty-obsessed-fart chose for them, weren't burdened by thinking that other people would insist they have 45 children while not ever working for anybody but their chintzy father, and never needed to worry that they might not have sex or even hold hands with an interesting person before they were 30....

No wonder they looked happy and their kids don't. 😁

JB was living his dream and still is. His kids never even got to have a dream.

Perhaps Michelle and Jim Bob could give a talk on narcissistic rage and use their wonderful family struggle as testimony. 

Jill is never coming back, you chowderheads. You should’ve just cut Derick a big fat check when you had a chance.  He doesn’t seem to have an issue with your beliefs, it’s strictly a money thing. Very telling that you love money more than family peace.

Well, #17 (or so) on that 150 year old list was about not giving much money to your children. Sure, get a house to live in for a while but don't pay your kids for appearing on a show about their fucking generation. 

This directive justifies Boob being a grade A skinflint.

I mean, controlling the amount of available resources a given person has is also a classic way of keeping people in cults.  If one of the kids suddenly decided they wanted out, and were not already weighed down with a spouse and child, making sure they only have 100 bucks in their account at any given time is going to keep them in line.  It’s doubly bad that every adult, married or not, is pretty much a tax avoidance scam for Boob, too.  Thousands upon thousands of dollars may be passing through under their name, but they wind up having little to no access to it.

 One of the other things I mention is avoiding moods and fits of sulkiness.  Read by a sulking Michelle. There are no emotions besides positive emotions.

My estimate of 4-5 minutes of footage of JB and M is generous, BTW, it was probably less.  From what I saw, they were spouting the usual crapola they spout at these conferences.  I didn't think there was any great revelation about anything specific to their family.  If the stuff that Katie posted was the most convincing as far as their relationship with Jill and Derick, there is nothing there.

I agree. Katie, as usual, is reaching. I watched for the footage so *I* could decipher it. The book Meech referred to is new material for her. I think Boob has talked about his temper issues before, so nothing new there.

I’m not a fan of giving kids large amounts of money but you have to then prepare them to be independent so they can support themselves which they have not. But since appearing on the show is more or less their job, they should be compensated.

JB will never conceive (or concede) that there is any problem or issue.  As he sees it his kids have great lives because they're living HIS dream.  The man literally can't see beyond the bounds of his dream and dismisses all outside that scope as sinful and ungodly.

True. I don’t know for sure, but it seems like all of the boys businesses are under the umbrella of Duggar entreprises. Are they making that much money individually with their businesses? And then, there is Ben. Who the hell knows what he does.

Where the money comes from is the big question. Who signs everyone’s paychecks and how does JB make all of his money.

However that is speculation, as well as what Derick says. Jessa and Jinger seem to have access to plenty of money, so if JB is actually doling it out, he seems to be very generous.

I believe the Duggar 19 suffer a different bondage. The bondage of being raised in a dysfunctional famous Fundy family.

I'm 100% convinced these entities are nothing but fronts for money laundering. I remember that one scene where Kendra called Joe at the car lot and he said a couple people came by over the course of the entire day. Not exactly a high traffic operation. There's no way these piddly businesses are generating enough profit to support the sons and their families.

The Duggar marrieds live off whatever allowance Boob gives them.

I think in considering whether the kidults, particularly the married kids, have their own money, we have to also look at any differences between the daughter/son-in-law pairings versus the son/daughter-in-law pairings. Couples like Joe/Kendra, etc. probably do not completely have any cash flow independent of JB, whether it's from the show or from their own businesses. I suspect that Jim Bob is involved at some level with each of the son/daughter-in-law pairings, although it may be to differing degrees with each one. 

The daughter/son-in-law pairings, with the possible exception of Jessa/Ben, likely do have cash flow independent of JB. This is most evident with Jill/Derick and Joy/Austin. I suspect that with Jill/Derick, they are completely financially independent from JB. I think Joy/Austin are almost completely there other than maybe the occasional stint on Counting On, but even then they are trying to break away from that. Jinger/Jeremy is a big question mark, because they are clearly not residing in the same vicinity as everyone else, but LA has a higher cost of living, and it's unclear as to what their cash flow is with their attempts at influencing, or even with regard to the show. And well, Ben has basically become a Duggar more than Jessa has become a Seewald, so they are probably more on par with the son/DILs.

It was the same when 19K showed Smuggar and Ofsmuggar at the business before Mackynzie was born. There was hardly any traffic, and there was Ofsmuggar, making notes on a steno pad like a real professional dealership. *eye roll* I bought a new (used) car this week, and there was no steno pad or the owner's wife or a repurposed kitchen table involved.

I noticed the "God=Dad" comment from Jim Bob. Really, no one's father is equal to God IMO, sorry. I don't care what a great father you can have but isn't this blasphemous? Michelle used her whisperly sweet mousy voice again. It was annoying to listen to her. Those two have a lot of nerve continuing to speak anywhere and give advise to anyone. They do it for the $$, if any, and mostly for the attention it gives them. They are experts in nothing but think so highly of themselves. Wow, are they models of humility!

I understand what JB was trying to say..... the Bible says that God is our ABBA Father, a common term that expresses affection, confidence and trust. Yes, revere, honor and respect God, but don’t be afraid to go to Him with your problems, fears or concerns much like you would do to your earthly father. Unfortunately, some earthly fathers don’t deserve honor or respect. So, if a person wouldn’t go to their earthly father, they very well may turn against their Heavenly Father.

Yes, thank you, I was trying to think of how to explain this. You did a much better job than I would have. Also if your earthly father is abusive/ untrustworthy then you are less likely to trust the Heavenly Father.

Jinger and Jessa share a lot of how they're living and what they purchase on TV and SM. LA is quite expensive and J & J have expensive dining and clothing tastes. Jessa sent her in-laws on an anniversary trip recently and has done some home renos. So I would say that its common knowledge neither family is scrimping and saving to get by.

Jinger is living in a house on a temporary gifted basis.  Perhaps her headship is spending whatever they get, along with their Laredo house proceeds on his current priorities, assuming it's all easy come, easy go and repeat.  Maybe JB is staying silent, knowing that may be what forces them back to Arkansas eventually.

Jessa and Ben are already packed pretty tightly into their living quarters with 3 children.  I don't even know if they actually own the property they're living in.  It also appears they may only have one vehicle. 

Their lives may appear fairly presentable to fans on the 'gram.  I'm not so sure the reality is aspirational.

Agree that SM is not reality and neither family is something that I would aspire to. I was just sharing my opinion that what Derick says and the speculation made by the Youtube woman does not make sense with what we see with the remaining Duggars.

Jessa and Ben do own their home. Someone saw the deed. Any money that the Vuolos made on the sale of their house would be long gone by now.
