Jessa Duggar shared a new picture with husband Ben Seewald, declaring their first month anniversary.

“Today we’re celebrating our 1 ‘monthiversary!’ Ben Seewald, you’re amazing! I’m so blessed to call you mine!” the 23-year-old said on Facebook and Instagram.

Jessa and Ben were married in November in a large ceremony that included many friends and family members.

They later went on a honeymoon, although the location hasn’t been officially disclosed.

The wedding caused some controversy after it was reported Jessa and Ben chose to share their first kiss in private, upsetting Jessa’s parents Jim Bob and Michelle.

The Duggar clan is under strict dating rules that include no regular hugs and no hand-holding before they’re engaged.

They’re also not supposed to kiss until they’re married.

Meanwhile, the Duggar family shared a new picture of Jason and Joy-Anna on Instagram.
