Over the years, Counting On fans have been introduced to a revolving door of Duggar-in-laws, from Ben Seewald to Derick Dillard to Jeremy Vuolo. Although viewers have different opinions of them (from finding Jeremy the "hottest" to finding Derick the most "annoying"), many fans have gradually come to a startling realization — Ben is by far the best of the Duggar husbands. We're not sure how we got to this point. When Ben first made his TV debut when he was courting Jessa Duggar in 2014, many viewers thought he was kind of, well, dumb. Once the young couple got hitched and officially got their Twitter and Instagrams up, they started rubbing many people the wrong way with their fire and brimstone tweets about abortion and how others were going to "burn in hell."
However, over the years, fans have noticed that the couple has become more, dare we say, relaxed? As Ben took to Twitter to profess his love for Christian rap and his laidback approach of letting Jessa be the "boss" of the house, he's gradually won people over. "Who would have thought he would turn out to be the best Duggar husband so far?" one fan wrote. "Ben would be the Duggar husband you'd want to marry if you had to choose one," another wrote.
Although Ben definitely is not some progressive idealistic Superman, he is more open-minded than the Jim Bob Duggars of the world. And that's saying a lot. Below, more ways Ben is the only Duggar-in-law we might want to hang out with…maybe.
