Derick and Jill Duggar Dillard honeymoon photos
          

Jill Duggar Dillard honeymoon photo with Derick Dillard

It’s been one week since the wedding of Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar (now Jill Dillard) and the seemingly always good-spirited couple celebrated their “Weekiversary” by sharing honeymoon photos with fans!

Jill posted the apparent selfie above and wrote, “Celebrating our weekiversary!” She then added a boy and girl kissing emoji (RACY!) and told fans, “Stay tuned to @tlc to watch the wedding!” That was followed by a string of hashtags: #19kidsandcounting #duggarfamily #derickdillard #jilldillard #duggarwedding

Derick posted a different beach selfie (seashellfie?) and captioned it the same way, only with fewer hashtags and no kissy kissy girly emoji. ;)

The big question still remains: Where did Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar Dillard go for their honeymoon?!? Obviously it’s a beach somewhere, with a number of people speculating it is somewhere along the Gulf Coast closest to where the couple reside in Arkansas. Of course, there are numerous others offering up their theories that included South Florida, the Outer Banks of North Carolina and even Hawaii. If the usually adept TV secret-keeping family is successful yet again, I suppose we might all just have to wait until the new season of 19 Kids and Counting in the fall.

Meanwhile, Jill isn’t the only Duggar gal taking a trip with a scruffy beau! Ben Seewald and Jessa Duggar packed up their courtship and set sail for Hot Springs, Arkansas earlier today — in a car and with lil chaperones Justin and Johannah:

Ben tweeted the photo above and excitedly wrote, “Headed to Hot Springs!”

He also shared a romantic photo with Jessa sans chaperones and simply captioned it with a heart:

So are Ben Seewald and Jessa Duggar engaged yet? There’s still no announcement, but it’s pretty much everyone’s assumption we will be getting one soon — perhaps after a little more time has passed with Jill and Derick in the romantic spotlight. :)

      Honestly what good are 8 & 10 year olds as chaperones, with headphones on (maybe watching a dvd since Duggars don’t listen to music?).
      Glad to see Jill enjoying herself on a real vacation. Bit put off they are already advertising to watch on TLC.

      • Sophie

        They listen to music it’s just focused on religious music but they do not watch tv so why would they be watching a movie??

        • Lili

          Explains why her mom had n keeps having kids, since “they don’t watch tv” lol

        • Renee L

          They only listen to hymns, according to them. The only TV they watch on occasion (besides their own show) are westerns.

        • Celeste Lawler

          They supposedly can watch some “G” rated movies & religious based ones as well. In the COSMO interview the 4 oldest daughters did to promote their book, they said they are allowed to watch some pre-approved episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. That was a popular show 50 years ago when I was a teenager. Interesting don’t you think, they aren’t allowed to READ COSMO, but it’s perfectly fine to do an interview with them.

          • Julia Childress

            They can watch Andy Griffith Shows that don’t contain too much “romance.” You never know the damage that watching Barney and Thelma Lou on a date might do.

            • Guest

              Literally laughed out loud at that one, Julia!

          • SS

            I can’t believe the episodes of Andy Griffith have to be pre-approved! That was never known as a racey show, even in it’s time. so weird.

          • anjealka

            I’m disappointed with the Duggars selling out a bit for extra $$ lately since they are clearly living comfortably. I agree they would never read cosmo but are willing to take $$ for an interview. Now they sold their wedding story and pictures for a multi magazine and story spread in people. The guests at the wedding said the security about pictures & writing on social media were frightening. They are scared to talk to anyone still (it was a 1 month agreement). I can’t imagine being lifelong friends with the Duggars, there for the poor times early on and the fruitful times now and go to their daughters wedding and have your camera taken and have to sign an agreement walking in the church that you don’t understand, sign quickly or don’t enter.

            • Celeste Lawler

              They only associate with their own kind anyway. They’re ALL people who belong to the same church. They view the outside world as “evil”. The only “friends” we’ve ever seen the Duggar “children” have are the children of JimBob & Michelle’s friends – ALL people they know from church & home school conferences; which are BOTH run by Gothard.

        • anjealka

          I said a dvd. the Duggars endorse many christain dvd’s. They have shown us on a tour of the bus the dvd library that the kids can watch while they travel. They explained the types of dvds, mostly Christian and a few older shows like Andy Griffith that they approved. I know they listen to classical music only. I just assume 2 kids under 10 would watch a dvd or classical music.

          • Kelly

            Why don’t they listen to Christian music?

            • anjealka

              The Duggars are allowed to listen to Christian music. Michelle said on the tour of the bus and how traveling works the kids like to watch veggie tales and a dvd series about a frog(forgot the name but it is a christain series). I was just guessing on a 4 hour trip kids under 10 would chose a dvd over classical music especially since it is how they normally pass the time traveling.

            • Julia Childress

              They won’t listen to any music, including Christian music, that has a rock beat (e.g. the Gaithers, Sandy Patti) because their mentor, Bill Gothard says that the rock beat is of the devil and drummers in Africa summon the devil with that beat. Seriously.

        • Guest

          When Josh got married and moved into their family rent house, the first thing you saw in the living room was a great big ole flat screen TV!

      • longIslander

        Don’t worry…I’m sure Jim Bob is in the trunk with his x-ray glasses on ready to spring out if they accidentally sit too close or, God forbid, attempt a front hug.

        • Celeste Lawler

          Yes, JimBob. A/K/A “The Sperminator” or “The Guardian of Hymens.”

        • Guest

          I figured he went on the honeymoon with them so he could tell them what and what not to do! LOL…..The whole family is making TONS AND TONS of $$$ on TLC. I’m so glad the attention is finally on Jill and Jessa and OFF of Josh and Anna, although I’m sure Josh is not too happy. When it comes to attention-seeking, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree there (Jim Bob/Josh)! I

      • Myndee

        They couldn’t give up a babysitter for the day so they sent the kids

    • sammy

      The second Jessa picture isn’t “sans” chaperones. You can clearly see one of the kids giving the peace sign in between them, and they’re in the same car in the same outfits as the previous photo.

    • Harper

      They should enjoy their honeymoon and take a break from social media. We don’t all have to see these update photos. Put the phone down and enjoy your time together. It’s only a matter if time before she’s knock up for the next 20+ years.

      • awoman

        This seems a little too over the top. They took, what….one or two pictures? I’d think this if they were live-tweeting, but one or two pictures?

      • Megan M

        I don’t think she’ll be pregnant for the next 20 yrs. Btw, I forgot, but what does he do for a living???
        Be happy, you two!!
        :-)

        • Celeste Lawler

          He has an accounting degree from a real brick & mortar college which he attended. He’s working for Wal-Mart in Arkansas in their corporate office.

          • Megan M

            That’s right, I forgot. I think that maybe they’d mentioned it in earlier episodes.
            Have fun, you CUTE couple

          • Guest

            It is Derick Dillard who has an accounting degree from Oklahoma University and works at Wal Mart. Ben (or his family) has some kind of business in Hot Springs and he works there; I think it is repairing/replacing windshields. Derick is the only educated one of the whole bunch of in-laws.

            • Guest

              By educated, I meant all the Duggar kids were home schooled and have GED’s. I think Ben attends/attended a community college in Hot Springs, maybe still does. I meant Derick had a college degree, and that’s what I should have said! They are all educated!

              • Celeste Lawler

                A Christian-based home school “education” that leads to a GED isn’t what most people consider as someone being “educated”. Usually a college degree, trade school or apprenticeship is what people are talking about when they think “educated.”

            • Celeste Lawler

              That’s what my post SAID. That Derick had an accounting degree which he earned by ATTENDING a real “brick & mortar” school (a building as opposed to all the “on-line courses” people claim the Duggar’s take). I also said Derick works for Wal-Mart, in their corporate office in Arkansas. I don’t know what you think I posted or what you think you read. As for the “whole bunch of in-laws” that would be Derick & Anna. The only 2 Duggar children who are currently married are Jill (to Derick) & Josh (to Anna). It is my understanding that Anna has a college education & is qualified to teach. However I don’t know if that is accurate. And “having a college education” doesn’t necessessarily mean she is a college graduate who holds a degree. Nor does it mean she actually attended a college. She too could have taken courses on line as people state the Duggar children have.

      • Lilly Rose

        YEP!!!!!!

      • Guest

        Wrong Duggar, this is Jessa not Jill

    • stella

      Jessa looks stunning

      • Renee L

        She does. Very pretty.

      • Celeste Lawler

        She’s a beautiful young woman. In the “real world” she could probably be a model. I think she looks like Angelina Jolie. She could be her stand-in.

        • Kay

          Prettier than Angelina. Though I’ve never liked Angelina much, personally.

          • Celeste Lawler

            Not a fan of Angelina myself. I have a dislike for women who involve themselves w/married men. And I thought she was batshit crazy w/Billy Bob Thornton. But no denying she’s attractive. And I AM sympathetic to her choice to have a preventative double mastectomy, being a breast cancer survivor myself.

    • Brandy Nicole

      They are awfully close in that second pic.

    • SS

      Ben, you’re a good looking dude. Please ditch the Bettie Page bangs.

      • Celeste Lawler

        He’d have no clue who Bettie Page was. If he ever saw a photo of her he’d probably have to wash his eyes out with bleach!

    • P

      lol chaperones Justin and Johannah?!?!? Might as well bring Stevie Wonder along, too. And I wonder what is blasting in their headphones, probably some kind of religious rap music… with Snoop Jezzy Jesus and LL Cool God being their favorites.

      • Nicole

        Holy crap that is honestly the funniest thing I’ve ever heard! You just made my day.

        • Celeste Lawler

          I agree!

      • dawn

        Wow not nice..

    • Guest

      For modest women they sure put on a lot of makeup and go out of their way to do their hair to the utmost. All I am saying is don’t preach the whole holier than thou when you are some of the most Vain looking women…. so you put a lot of makeup on but you don’t wear a tank top instead your wear a short shirt sleeve… i know women who do wear shorts and a tank top and look way more modest than these ladies.

      • Celeste Lawler

        If you notice in these photos BOTH Jill & Jessa are wearing sleeveless tops. Although now that Jill is married, it’s up to her husband what she’s allowed to do.

        • Agado

          I think with the new addictions to the family (Derick&Ben) the girls were able to see and discuss with their partners different ways of living as Christians, hence the sleeveless tops. I’m happy new ideas are being brought into the family, Michelle and Jim Bob seem to want to shield the kids from every “temptions”, mistakes they could make.. Watching a movie, listening to music wearing sleeveless tops is not gonna make them less Christian if their faith is strong as it seems to be. :)

          • Kelly

            Neither is dancing like ballroom style dancing. Nothing provocative. I understand the no drinking but there is nothing UN- Christian about dancing especially on your wedding day. That decision should be let up to the bride and groom. These are adults we are talking about. No longer children.

            • Agado

              I agree

        • Kelly

          Now that Jill is married its up to her how and what she does. She’s a grown woman who should start thinking for herself and what SHE wants.

          • Guest

            I hope she knows how to do that……think and make decisions for herself.

            • Kelly

              Me too! She is an intelligent and bright young woman who is no doubt capable but I’m hoping has the courage, not to defy her parents, but to make her own choices and decisions about everything in life, with her husband, who may also have different ideals, opinions and values that aren’t as strict or exactly like Jim Bob and Michelle’s.

              • Patches

                got to realize they been brainwashed into this holier than now life style,so how can they change ,if only one of them would move away to lets say New york and go wild,that would surly make my day,then see what old man jim bob and michelle would think then ,oh my god,society corrupted my child?

                • dawn

                  The Duggars do not act holier than thou, they are simple people that are Christians and doing God’s work. They have raised some fine young kids and bringing their children up the way God wants us to. It dosen’t matter what religion they are we serve one God.

          • Celeste Lawler

            No. What she does as a married woman is up to her husband. HE is now her headship of authority. Her headship of authority transferred from her father to her husband once she was married.

          • Celeste Lawler

            No. Once she was married her headship of authority transferred from her father to her husband. He decides what she can and cannot do. Her duty is to be subservient & to please her man & to be dependent on him for everything. Remember JimBob asking Derick how HE was going to support Jill? I thought what the hell kind if question is that in this day & age? I wished Derick had said, “It’s 2014. Most 23 year old women have been raised & educated to support themselves. I want a life PARTNER. Not a leech.”

      • Kay

        I really don’t think they’re preaching anything. From how they talk, they seem to always say “this is how our family does things and this is why.” Not that everyone else is bad for not doing the same. It’s possible they may THINK that, but I’ve never heard them say it.

        • Celeste Lawler

          And we WON’T hear them say it. But it is what they believe. They don’t associate on a regular basis w/anyone who doesn’t belong to the same “church” as they do. They view the “outside” world as evil. Their religion operates under the tenets that classify it as a cult.

    • Vee

      I wonder how many kids they are going to procreate…

      • Renee L

        20. Just to piss off her mother by one-upping her.

      • Peggyscc

        what difference does it make as long as they take care of them?

        • Celeste Lawler

          Or have the older ones raise them once they turn 8 just like Michelle did. Who cares if they can afford them or not?

      • Julia Childress

        “as many as God will give us” – Jill Duggar Dillard

    • Renee L

      Jill looks traumatized from her wedding night.

      • Celeste Lawler

        I’m surprised she can walk!

        • Renee L

          Heh, I totally thought of that.

        • Kay

          Come on. Keep it classy, quit saying pervish stuff. Let some things be private.

          People need to grow up.

          • Celeste Lawler

            Oh please! We ARE grown up. We all know what goes on on the wedding night. And supposedly she’s never even been allowed to put a tampon in her vagina before. And if you think sexual intercourse is “pervish” you’re wackier than the Duggars!

    • Patricia

      Jessa is absolutely stunning!

    • Myndee

      I’m really surprised how much skin the girls are showing now. A shoulder is so provocative for the family who can’t show knees. And nice, couldn’t lose a sitter for a day so you sent the kids with them.

      • SS

        I’ve only watched the show once or twice so I have a question: are they allowed to wear bathing suits? I can’t imagine what they would wear going in a swimming pool or the ocean that would be okay.

        • Julia Childress

          No bathing suits allowed. Only “modesty wear”, which look like something that Queen Victoria wore when she went bathing.

          • SS

            oh jeez, that’s horrible. If I were Jill I’d be on my honeymoon buying my first bikini.

            I just noticed in that top photo of Jill that she has a black shirt on under her grey t-shirt. That t-shirt doesn’t look low enough to require a top under it for modesty, so could that be her modest swimwear? Weird.

            • Julia Childress

              It may be that now that she is married, and to someone who had a more normal upbringing, she will begin to branch out a little and, with Derick, establish their own standards for dress, child raising, etc. Although I am sure that they will have a large family.

              • Celeste Lawler

                I hope they don’t have a ton of children. She’s been raising the younger siblings assigned to her since she was 8 years old herself. I wouldn’t want ANY if I were her.

                • dawn

                  That’s you not her. Big difference.

                  • Celeste Lawler

                    Yes. I was raised to think for myself; make my own decisions & choices. I wasn’t raised to believe my entire worth as a person was my uterus.

            • Celeste Lawler

              Modest swimwear is the name of the actual swimsuit. It’s not something they put together themselves. I think there’s an actual website Modestware. This has nothing to do w/swimwear…but they regularly wear what’s known as a “shade shirt” under their tops.

            • Celeste Lawler

              I think those are called “shade shirts.”

          • Kay

            On a serious note, they wear swimsuits under denim skirts and tee shirts. Even if they’re having an all girls swim. Sounds completely ridiculous to me, and I actually like the Duggars.

            • Julia Childress

              The reason for the extreme modesty is their adherence to Bill Gothard’s principles. Gothard teaches that women’s bodies will cause men to sin so women have to cover up. Women are “defrauding” men when they imply that they are sexually available and then don’t follow through. Search Gothard and defrauding and you will find some interesting stuff.

              • Guest

                Julia is right. Just google Bill Gothard. VERY interesting stuff. That man is one nut job. The Bates family are also his followers.

                • Celeste Lawler

                  Yes, indeed. Siblings are not permitted to see one another in their night clothes even.

              • Glowbug

                Why not just wear burkas

            • Celeste Lawler

              They don’t wear bathing suits under denim skirts & tee shirts. What they wear IS called Modesty Wear. The bathing suits themselves are like long denim skirts.

        • Myndee

          No, they’re not allowed to wear a bathing suit or pants even. There was an episode where the mom Michelle was wakeboarding and she had a skirt on and it showed her kneecap and she asked to have it censored because that was the equivalent of showing a nipple to her. When they swim they have to wear long skirts and long shirts. It’s really strange to watch since there are modest one pieces but not modest enough I guess.

          • Celeste Lawler

            You’d think they’d be at risk for drowning w/the weight of the bathing suits once they’ve absorbed all the water.

            • Myndee

              Yeah, you would think. Michelle was in a denim skirt wakeboarding and all I could think was good thing she’s wearing a life jacket.

      • And the hair styling, eyebrows done, obvious orange self tanner. It’s a shock to watch the first season and then to see the girls now. Jim Bob and Michelle loosened the reigns at some point. Maybe this is because I watched the Warren Jeffs movie but these girls look way more into appearances than you’d expect.

        • Peggyscc

          what does psycho Warren Jeffs have to do with the Duggars?

          • Julia Childress

            there are some parallels between the fundamentalist Mormons and fundamentalist Christians: patriarchy, modesty and purity culture, no birth control and more.

          • Celeste Lawler

            Yeah! The Duggar’s “psycho” is Bill Gothard. Not Warren Jeffs!

        • Myndee

          It’s strange to me Michelle doesn’t change her looks a little. She needs a new hairstyle. And yes, they look like a normal teen girl who’s into her appearance now and I thought that was a no no? You’re not supposed to be worried about your vanity, only what God thinks of you?

        • Celeste Lawler

          I’m guessing possibly TLC may have had some influence in the older daughters change of appearance.

    • Celeste Lawler

      Whoa! These “Duggar women” are wearing sleeveless tops now! Apparently they finally got the memo from God that it pleases him.

      • anjealka

        I’m happy the girls are changing to different styles, such a long way from when we met the 11 years ago with those long homemade matching dresses. I hope if they have changed the rules maybe in the next q & A answer episode the Duggars will explain the new rules they have for dress.

        • Julia Childress

          The Duggars have proven to be very adaptable based on the feedback from the audience. Criticism for not allowing them to get a secular education? Jill announces that she is going for her RN, which means she will have to have some real science classes. Criticism that Michelle doesn’t spend enough time raising her own kids? We get an episode showing her playing chess with one, shooting a slingshot with one and playing the violin with one. I am sure that we will see more morphing in future episodes, although you can be sure that Jim Bob will continue to be the man in charge.

          • Guest

            I think all that “one on one” time with mom may just be for the cameras……the violin session with Joy Anna was just plain weird, as was the slingshot session with James. All Michelle did with Joy Anna was giggle and both kids had the strangest look on their faces when they looked at her. Just sayin’.

            • Celeste Lawler

              Yeah. Nothing like waiting until your children are grown to finally try to get to know them & spend some one-on-one time with a couple of them. Oh yeah. She’s a wonderful mother. Pathetic.

              • dawn

                Jealously is showing?

                • Celeste Lawler

                  Of what? A broodmare who drops her litter & has the females from previous litters raise them?

      • dawn

        Rude

        • Celeste Lawler

          Not at all. Just informed & honest.

    • Liv

      Jessa is gorgeous.

    • Jeff Cigar

      Seriously a week and that “beard” still isn’t filled in Derick?

    • ….

      LOL at lazy ass Jim Bob and Michelle sending elementary school aged kids to “chaperone” Jessa’s date. Where was Jana or Jinger? Oh that’s right, raising their own siblings! Maybe they’re figuring that any decent person wouldn’t mess around with their little sister or brother there? That pic is just hilarious though. I’m sure princess Jessa immediately sent those kids away and did whatever she wanted with Ben on their date.

    • Sarah Jacques

      There’s some speculation that they honeymooned in Greece. In the background there is a big rock off the coast which is very similar to one off the coast of Greece.

    • Jahmia

      Oh really Jackson and Johannah chaperones they are a bit too young to be chaperones. Why don’t they choose Josiah and Joy-Anna? That is a idea. Please.

    • Rob Ford (CRACK MAYOR)

      She’s pregnant

      • Kelly

        Who is pregnant?

        • Rob Ford (CRACK MAYOR)

          Jill Duggar Dillard

    • Kay

      I didn’t see a connection with Jessa and Ben at first. Seemed like he was into her and she wasn’t so into him. But as time goes by it seems he is growing on her. True love takes time in a lot of cases.

      Their courtship sure is dragging out though, most courtships in their religion only last a few months.

      • Celeste Lawler

        Now she can’t get married soon enough so she can really let him get in to her.

    • Rob Ford (CRACK MAYOR)

      They better watch that Jessa, she’s beautiful and like hell Ben isn’t going to try some heavy petting, those brats got to go to bed eventually

    • Kelly

      Over the years I’ve watched show faithfully but can’t find their very first shows before they started calling it 17, 18, and 19 and counting. I also can’t understand why Michelle’s family is rarely mentioned or anyone but her dad, before he passed away, has been on the show. Is that her choice or their’s?

      • Julia Childress

        One of her sisters came for a visit and was shown in one of the early shows. I think it was a baby shower for Michelle. Michelle was not raised in a religious family and I think that it is mutual that they don’t appear on the show.

      • Celeste Lawler

        The “earlier shows” were specials that were on The Discovery channel. In addition to her father, Michelle’s mother & her sister Kathy have also passed away. Her family relocated from Arkansas when she graduated high school; shortly before she married JimBob at age 17.
