Jill Dillard was a staple on her family’s reality show, so it was surprising that she decided to leave “Counting On” in 2017. The show was originally named “Jill & Jessa: Counting On” (after them and their sister, Jessa Seewald). It was canceled in 2021 (like its predecessor, “19 Kids and Counting,” which was canceled in 2019) due to the sexual assault and child pornography drama surrounding her brother Josh Duggar.
in Q&A about Official YouTube page of the Dillard family, Jill said she left the show because she didn’t have enough control over her life, and she didn’t like it. “Our control over choosing which jobs we were allowed to accept and even where we were allowed to live was taken away from us,” Jill said. People, “The first few years of our marriage, we spent time and money working toward opportunities when we were told, ‘Well, you’re not allowed to do that,'” Derrick told the same source. and said that his decision to leave “didn’t go down well with anyone.”
Jill’s parents responded to the magazine’s comments in a statement, saying, “Every family has occasional differences of opinion and perspective, but families work things out. We are all very proud of Jill, Derrick and their boys.” Love you. It is our prayer that our relationship is healed and fully restored quickly!”
