Jim Bob helped choose the spouses of his children
When his daughters were old enough to marry, they didn’t just go out and choose their spouses. Instead, Jim Bob had to approve and bless the partnership before the couple could start caring. This means that he had a hand in choosing each of the spouses of his daughters, including Derik Dillard, Ben Zevald, Jeremy Vuolo and Austin Forsythe. But does Jim Bob regret his decision?

Jill Duggar Rises Against His Father's Rules
But that's not all – many fans have noticed that Jill continues to rebel against his father’s strict rules, and her husband seems to support this. For example, women Duggar allowed to wear only skirts, but not pants, and, of course, no shorts. That's why it was so shocking when Derik photographed his wife Jill Daggar while they were going camping. She was dressed in the usual clothes for hot weather – shorts and a tank top. But if you know Duggars and Jim Bob in particular, then you know that this choice of clothes is anything but ordinary.
Will Jill and Derik Dillard ever break up?
In the end, it doesn't matter what Jim Bob Duggar thinks about Derik Dillard. As soon as the daughter leaves her father's home, she becomes her husband's partner and no longer has to follow her father’s rules.
