JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

Recommended Posts

Oh no skirt guess JD couldn’t give a damn about the no skirt rule. She looks good too.

I truly think JD has some common sense  and realizes that Abby has some too. I also think they would get the $& / ? out if they could.  Maybe if  JD gets enough flight hours logged that he could fly a commercial cargo plane. Didn’t someone here say they chose a different church to attend than the rest of the Duggars?

Yeah, I recall them attending a church that was sort of off the beaten path (not in Springdale or Fayetteville). But then again, we don't know if they're living in JD's Rogers house or elsewhere.

They’re both in their late 20s, married, and are able to support themselves in their respective careers when this gravy train derails.

That's true of Abbie. JD is still firmly on JB's tit.

But compared to other Duggar sons (cough, Josh, cough), JD has some potentially marketable skills and a semblance of a work ethic.

Yes, JD has a commercial pilot's license, so, he could go out and find a job with any number of businesses needing pilots whether Fed Ex or a private charter service or even a small airline.  I don't think he has the qualifications to fly big passenger jets for a major airline, but he has a marketable skill and could escape the family if he chooses.

I'm actually surprised he doesn't go that route, considering there's a pilot shortage. He could make great money flying for one of the cargo companies, not to mention the benefits. What sort of hold does Boob have over these kids?

Got this picture from a fan page, so I have no idea which of Abbie's friend posted it. She looks very skinny, maybe she had a rough first few months. 

I had hyperemesis and lost weight until month eight, when I quickly gained about 20 pounds. I weighed less the day I gave birth than I did the day I found out I was pregnant. That could explain Abbie’s weight loss and absence from other family events.

ME TOO!  I was so damn sick with my first child.  I was skinnier after giving birth than before the pregnancy. 

Maybe Abbie had a really rough first 12 weeks.  She looks happy though.

I was going to say that Abbie could have been surprised to be pregnant because Celiac can mess with your cycles.  But then I remembered; Abbie isn't Celiac is she? I imagine being a nurse she would have looked into an official diagnosis if she thought she had a problem but isn't Lauren the "official" celiac sufferer and Abbie is gluten free because she just felt better when she eliminated it?   If so I guess that theory is out, not that Abbie couldn't be irregular for many other reasons; it's not an uncommon problem.

I love that Instgram photo though - it is a totally normal everyday photo of a woman wearing a normal summer outfit.  In Duggar land those shoulders and that neckline are defrauding and JB would drop in a faint if he saw any of his unmarried girls and even a few of the married (ie the ones he still controls) in that outfit.  That JD doesn't seem to care and that Abbie is comfortable wearing it says a lot and is great progress.

Lauren isn't officially celiac. Neither one of them is officially celiac, but both Abbie and Lauren have talked about gluten sensitivity.

I wonder if she’s been suffering from hyperemesis and that’s why she looks like she actually lost weight and has missed family events.

Wow, Abby's lost a lot of weight.

Yeah, how thin she looked in the prior photo (shortly before they announced, and the first pic in awhile) actually had me convinced she *was* pregnant. Hyperemesis is a bitch. Hopefully she’s starting to feel better!

Also, and forgive me if I missed this (as I usually catch the family’s posts from browsing these boards, and never read JD&A’s thread here consistently through), but did we know that Abbie has/still has her own, private (!) IG?! Good for her! Only 30 posts, so it’s not like she/they are posting up a storm behind the private account; it pleases me on both counts. It’s so normal! (Her friend tagged both her private handle and their shared/public one.)

JB and M got them at birth and for most of their lives determinedly warped them into a particular shape and kept them from any outside contact except with fools who embrace the same idiot ideology and, in many cases, have the same personality issues JB and M have.

Their brains are literally wired to act toward them just like their parents acted all their lives. 

Unless something radical happens, most Duggarlings are self-perpetuating Boob-robots.

And that's why the notion of any of them having the strength  to break free and of us rescuing Jana, etc. are just things we would like to happen, and in reality slim to none chance of happening.

I think what got them all is the tv money. I’m sure it was drilled into their heads that god answered their prayers and gave them fame and money for sticking with their religion. The older ones must remember the abject poverty before TLC. Hell, that might even make me a believer.

Without tv show fame and money a few of them certainly would’ve deflected by now- my predictions would be Jessa (not condemning her parents but moving out and doing her own thing), who would’ve dragged Jinger with her as Jinger always wanted the superficial trappings of a difference kind of life.  As well as Josiah/Joy-Anna would’ve jumped ship together as soon as Joy-Anna was 18. 

As JB and Michelle age they will lossen the reigns (cause they are older and tired and Jana does so much), the kids from Jackson on down are likely to live less Duggar-esque lives.

I think Jana would still be there to care for the younger ones, and JD would support her in whatever decision she wanted to make.

That onesie is cute AF.  Happy for them and glad to see that Abbie is dressed more normally/mainstream.  I imagine that as a nurse she gravitates towards clothing she can actually move in.

I likewise like her girl-next-door look.  She seems to be that type of practical girl who is the "go-to" advice-giver in her friend group.  Allover I think this pair is much better off for waiting until they were actual adults to get married.  It's like Abbie could, gosh, actually support herself if she were widowed, etc.

OK, let's play. If the Duggars didn't have the TV show fame and money, which kids would still totally stay in the fold?

I believe Joe would be one.

Jill's kind of interesting because I think she's one of the few where she became more mainstream due to Derick and the TV show. I think she would have also stayed in the fold if not for Derick.

I don't think Jill and Derick would have made it to the altar if there wasn't a tv show. They probably would have spent more time together than they did, and Derick would have realized Jill wasn't who she claimed to be ( midwife in training, somewhat educated, ready to get married ect). I think he would have bailed.

But I agree Jill would have absolutely stayed, Jessa and Jinger would have gotten married first second they could to basically anyone to escape the TTH, and maybe left years down the road. I don't think they would have gone on their own. I do think their suitors would have been less "desirable" ( in quotes because I don't think Jeremy and Bin are desirable husbands) and they are actually better off due to the show helping them get married Vs marrying a David Waller or Rodriguez person with no outside world experience 

Josh absolutely would have been the first to head for the hills, followed by Josiah. Josh was the only one so far capable of doing things on his own ( granted his thing was cheating, but it does take a lot of motivation to go against the grain and hire a prostitute when you've been raised fundy).

I don't know who would have bolted.  If they risked shunning by the parents and the parents made the siblings shun them, would they be strong enough to start over in a strange land with all those people they were taught to distrust?  Hard to tell.

I don't think JimBob & Michelle would have shunned (or would now shun) any child who went off the rails. They've allowed their children to be around Amy all her life and presumably around JimBob's sister who was living in sin with Amy's father for a long time. I think most of them, especially from Joseph down, would have an extremely hard time surviving because of their piss-poor education and lack of awareness of how the real world works. 

However, without the show, I think Josh would have been allowed to go to either Clown College or maybe even Liberty, gotten caught naked in someone's bed and expelled, then bolted instead of going to Jesus Jail. Josiah would have bailed at 18 and found some family who appreciated him to live with and help him get things figured out. JD, Jana, Jessa, and Jinger would have all married and eventually slowly migrated to a more mainstream Christian church and given up Gothardism. Jill would have married a man just like dad and been as unhappy with him as she is with Derick. And Joy probably would have married Austin.

I think after Josh and Josiah, Michelle and Jim-Bob would have gotten stricter, more confining, and more controlling of the younger kids to keep them in line. The show has given them enough money to go on childless vacations and having so many older kids at home lets them leave without any guilt or responsibility. Without the show, I think they would have ended up doing a lot more parenting once the older girls began marrying.

These people and their kissing pictures.  It’s like they have to show all the non-marrieds in their group “Look, we can touch, we can kiss!”

And all the social media posting of kisses just screams “See, our archaic courting practices work!  We are so in love!”

I’ve been with the same man for 28 years, married for 26 of them, and the total count of our kissing pictures is one, taken on our wedding day.  (We kissed  before marriage too, shocking, I know.  No pictures of that either.)

Agree. My due date for my miscarried twins was within a few weeks of my husband’s goddaughter and our niece. Everyone of their milestones could of been our twins milestones too. It is better as the years go on.

Burn the jacket along with every other piece of denim in that photo. Then in the process, accidentally singe off Mullet's bangs.
