On November 9, Jessa Duggar shared a public kiss between her parents on Instagram. The 22-year old star of TLC’s hit reality show ’19 Kids & Counting’ posted the image to her fans. “My parents texted me this picture!” Jessa wrote. “This year marks 30 years of marriage, and they’re still in that “honeymoon” stage! It’s great to see older married couples still so madly in love! ❤️ I love you Mom & Dad!” 49-year-old Jim Bob and his 48-year-old wife Michelle Duggar were recreating a passionate smooch that Jessa posted of her first public kiss. Jessa posted a sexy kiss on Nov. 5th that showed her kissing her new husband, Ben Seewald on the lips. Jessa captioned the sexy picture. “It’s great living life with your best friend! @ben_seewald.”
Jessa married Ben Seewald on November 1 in Arkansas. Jessa wore a blush Allure Bridal gown with Swarovski -crystal beaded bodice. The bride told People that it was the second one she tried on. Jessa also wore a rhinestone-and-pearl cluster headband. She ditched the traditional wedding cake. The 1,000 wedding guests enjoyed ice-cream sundae stations at the reception adding candy and cookie toppings. Ben Seewald was joined at the ceremony with his 10 groomsmen. He surprised his bride with a white gold and diamond wedding band. According to People though the couple’s first kiss was in private, they kissed again and again soon after they were married. People also includes a photo of the pair kissing on their wedding day in the Nov. 17th issue featuring a story on their fairytale wedding.
On November 8th, Jessa Duggar broke her silence on Instagram. The newlywed posted a lengthy message to respond to claims that she consummated her marriage to Ben Seewald at her wedding reception. ‘Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good,’ she wrote with a photo of a Bible passage. The biblical scripture reads. ‘Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written. Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
RadarOnline reported that a wedding guest named Mary B. claimed that the couple were caught consummating the marriage at the reception. “Multiple people were discussing that when Jinger opened the door to get Jess for the reception, she immediately closed the door with a look of shock on her face,” Mary alleged on Christian fundamentalist blog “My Life As A Stay At Home Wife And Mom.” “A big group of the girls were waiting outside the room to walk with her out…and my own daughters saw as well.”
She wrote: ‘I was very upset when I was told about the incident that was witnessed by [my daughters] when the door to the room [Jessa and Ben] were in was accidentally opened. ‘I am not sure why they would not wait for the evening to pray and then consummate God’s marriage.’ The woman added: ‘This really made me question Ben’s headship and leadership skills. I pray he is not swayed to evil. I pray he acts as a strong husband and worship leader to Miss Jessa.’ The post has since been deleted. RadarOnline has released another expose report called ‘Meet The Duggars! The Juiciest Secrets Of All 28 Family Members Exposed.’
