While watching 19 Kids and Counting, I often wonder what happened to Michelle Duggar. She used to be a "normal" teenage girl. She had a boyfriend, she probably listened to the music of her era. She even used to be a cheerleader. There are a few things I'm unclear about. Michelle is from Ohio, correct? How did she end up moving to Arkansas with her family? I thought her entire family still lives in Ohio?
I often wonder if she misses her life before popping out 19 kids, and before Jim Bob? I wonder if she misses her carefree days. I think she is the biggest hypocrite ever. She won't allow her daughters ( namely Jessa, Jinger, Jana, Jill) to wear pants, date, kiss boys, go to a real high school, or listen to contemporary music. Yet, Michelle did all of these things and she supposedly turned out "okay". Does she ever feel like she's deprived her daughters of their teenage years? Does she honestly think she's made the correct decision for her daughters? I understand that Jim Bob is her "leader", along with Gothard and that these decisions are not made entirely by Michelle. She married Jim Bob when she was 17, and of course consummated her marriage at that age. Yet, her daughters are still stuck at home, forbidden to even LOOK at a young man, lest they be defrauding. I just find the hypocrisy to be astounding.
As you can tell, I'm not a fan of hers. I also think she talks in a ridiculously vapid baby voice.
