Duggar Husband Accused of Cheating on Wife
Is there another cheater in the Duggars’ midst?
Just two years after disgraced brother Josh Duggar admitted to cheating by creating an Ashley Madison account to solicit an extramarital affair, word is spreading that another husband in the ever-growing family has been unfaithful to his wife.
Fans are speculating Derick Dillard, who is married to Jill Duggar, has committed the ultimate sin of adultery after what appeared to be a guilty confession surfaced online. Though the devout Christian has yet to admit to anything, his latest cryptic tweets about a certain “forbidden woman” is definitely raising eyebrows among his followers.
The 28-year-old first alarmed fans when he started tweeted Bible passages about infidelity. Last month, he wrote on Twitter unprovoked, “‘The mouth of forbidden women is a deep pit; he with whom the Lord is angry will fall into it.’ (Proverbs 22:14).”
He continued to raise concerns when he tweeted four days later, “‘Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.’ (Proverbs 27:5-6).”
Twitter users were quick to accuse the father-of-two of having a “guilty conscience,” saying the passages were referencing his relationship with his wife.
“This doesn’t seem very random,” one mused. “You been lusting in your heart, Derick?” Another wrote, “Sounds like it to me…Maybe he’s getting ready to EXPOSE SOME SKELETONS…”
Derick fueled cheating rumors some more when he tweeted last week, “He who commits adultery lacks sense; he who does it destroys himself.’ (Proverbs 6:32).”
He added in another message, quoting another line from Proverbs:
“Say 2 wisdom ‘U r my sister’& call insight your intimate friend, 2 keep u from the forbidden woman, from the adulteress w her smooth words.”
The string of telling Bible verses prompted dozens to ask him to clarify his comments. Derick did not respond, but his silence just aroused even more speculations. If he has stepped off the righteous path after being accepted into the Cross Church School of Ministry, a “one-year residential ministry” where students learn with others how to be effective in “Gospel advancement,” it would create a huge family scandal.
“College girls tempting you? Your tweets tempt us,” one fan wrote.
Meanwhile, another user tweeted, “Care to provide a context for this childish swordplay? Even the devil can quote scripture.”
