Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard attend ‘marriage conference’ after admitting they go to couples therapy
COUNTING On’s Jill Duggar attended a marriage conference with her husband Derick Dillard over the weekend.
The parents to sons Israel, five, and Samuel, three, recently revealed that they’ve been going to couples therapy to work on their relationship, as well.
Jill, 29, shared a sweet photo of her “snuggling” with her youngest son on Monday morning before giving her husband a shout-out for being the “best” and bring her “coffee in bed every morning.”
The public love and appreciation for how great her significant other is comes after the duo spent Sunday at a marriage conference together, put on by Cross Church, whose ministry school Derick graduated from.
“Last night’s date night was 💯,” Jill wrote in her Instagram Story, alongside a coupled-up shot of her and Derick at dinner.
The two of them smiled for the selfie, sitting in front of a full dish of chips and queso, as Derick gave a thumbs up.
The Counting On star added: “2nd time ever to @torchystacos + marriage conference @crosschurch👌✅”
She shared a photo from the event, sitting in the large audience, looking ahead at the grand stage, outfitted with multiple screens, podiums and purple spotlights.
Captioning the shot, Jill wrote: “It was a full house last night for the marriage conference @crosschurch with @tedmcunningham”
Jill and Derick also recently announced that they’d spent time in couple’s therapy after the star’s familial discourse with her parents and siblings.
The mom of two has been estranged from the Duggar clan after disagreeing with many of their beliefs and strict practices.
During a joint interview, Jill told Us Weekly: “It was one of those things where we knew therapy was helpful but until we got to the point where we were, like, desperate … we didn’t venture out to actually sign up for it.
“It’s been so helpful learning to communicate as a couple and knowing your triggers.”
The pair, who tied the knot in 2014, explained that the pair decided to seek help after experiencing “a lot of transition” in their lives.

Jill told the outlet: “There were just a lot of things that we were working through and then learning to develop boundaries with even just extended family,”
The couple used to star alongside her parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, as well as her other famous family members, on their TLC show Counting On until they were dropped from the series.
Since distancing herself from the famous family, Jill has rebelled against their strict rules, like the family’s modest dress code, and has further pushed boundaries by getting her nose pierced and cutting her hair short.
