Anyone who has watched 19 Kids and Counting or Counting On knows that the family's patriarch, Jim Bob Duggar, has some very strict rules for his household that he expects his offspring to abide. Among those orders was that his female children should never wear pants. Well his daughter Jessa has always played by his rules. Even after getting married to Ben Seewald in 2014, she's stayed very close with her parents, getting a house nearby and continuing to obey the rules her dad set forth... until now. In a new post on Instagram, Jessa poses with her three kids and her husband and in the pic she is wearing pants!
Commenters noticed immediately with one writing simply, "Pants!!!!" and getting a dozens of likes for it. Another person said, "I had to go back and look." Others pointed out that Jessa was wearing Bikenstocks and socks, a combo usually frowned upon but one that her supporters thought she rocked.
Jessa is definitely not the first Duggar female to wear pants. Her sister Jill has donned pants a few times and once even wore ripped jeans to a family outing. Meanwhile, Jinger Duggar has not only worn pants but has even dyed her hair before. Both Jill and Jinger have also had short hair styles, another thing they were never allowed to do as kids.
