Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar did not attend the law school graduation ceremony of their son-in-law Derick Dillard.
Jill and Derick have distanced themselves from her parents since they left Counting On and their ensuing family feud.
Yesterday, Jill shared a video of Derick’s graduation ceremony at law school.
The father-of-two noted that he wore the same shoes as when he graduated from high school 14 years ago.
James Duggar, 20, was also present, but Jill’s parents Jim Bob and Michelle were nowhere to be found.
Jill also shared their post-ceremony celebration with a breast feast and cake.
Today, Derick also paid tribute to his wife Jill Duggar after the couple broke their silence over Counting On’s “control” over their family.
The father of two took to his Instagram account to congratulate his wife who had “been through so much”.
Jill, 30, and Derick, 32, have moved away from her famous family in recent years.
He posted a photo of the couple sharing a tender moment in a field as he put his arm around her and kissed her on the head.
Derick captioned the post, “I love life with my best friend. We’ve been through so much, but there’s no one I would rather have by my side.”
Yesterday, Jill and Derick spoke of Counting On’s “control” over their family in a post about the show’s cancellation.
Last week, The Sun exclusively revealed that Counting On had been canceled after nearly six years.
In a lengthy statement on their blog, the couple admitted they were “a little late as we just heard the news with the rest of the world last Tuesday + this season of life is pretty busy for us.”
They continued, “We first heard about the cancellation when a friend and cousin each texted us after seeing TLC’s statement online. It is not known how long the cancellation was scheduled.
“It’s been over 4 years now since we chose to retire from the show and, although we were initially banned from sharing our decision to quit the show, we’ve opened up a bit more recently on our social media. . “
The married couple added, “However, we also faced a lot of pressures and unexpected challenges that forced us to move away from the show in an effort to gain more control over our own lives and do what was best. for our family. “
A petition calling for the cancellation of Counting On came after Josh Duggar was arrested on several child pornography charges.
“But at the end of the day, the network really wants to be on the safe side of this scandal ahead of Josh’s trial. It was important that the bosses were seen to have taken action,” an insider told The Sun.
Fans had started a petition to boycott Counting On when the gruesome details of Josh’s child pornography arrest emerged.
Josh, 33, had pleaded not guilty after being charged with two counts of receiving and possessing child pornography.
