Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar Show Support for Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald

November 9, 2014 Updated: November 9, 2015

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar took some time recently to text a picture of themselves kissing to daughter Jessa Duggar.

Jessa, 21, recently got married to Ben Seewald, 19.

Jessa shared the picture of Jim Bob and Michelle on Instagram.

“My parents texted me this picture! This year marks 30 years of marriage, and they’re still in that ‘honeymoon’ stage!” she said.

“It’s great to see older married couples still so madly in love! I love you Mom & Dad!”

The picture came after Jessa appeared to respond to rumors that she and Ben had sex at church during the wedding,  sharing Bible verses that included the quote “repay no one evil for evil.”

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good,” Jessa said in the caption, relaying the last line of the set of verses.

The rumor started on a Christian blog after a woman Ashleigh who says she was at the wedding shared her experience there. A commenter who also said that she was there claimed Jessa and Ben were walked in on by younger sister Jinger Duggar.


It’s great living life with your best friend! @ben_seewald

Jessa has also shared several pictures of her and Ben recently. The first one, coming soon after the wedding, shows the couple kissing in a stance later copied by Jessa’s parents.

Another shows the pages of People magazine in a story about the wedding.

And the third shows Ben kissing Jessa on the cheek as they spend time outside.

It’s unclear if the new couple is on a honeymoon right now.
