We’re Starting to Suspect Jim Bob and Michelle Bribe Their Kids Into Staying in Arkansas

Once the Duggar children get married, you'd think they might worry that with a single income (because lol women aren't allowed to work) they wouldn't be able to own a decent home. But never fear, Jim Bob Duggar and his assortment of real estate purchases are here… mainly to keep his kids in line. Yes, it's not uncommon for Jim Bob to reward his kids with a starter home upon their nuptials, but there's definitely strings attatched and sinister undertones. Namely, it really seems like Jim Bob is ensuring that his kids don't stray too far from the flock. You know, as if the incarceration of Jana Duggar wasn't proof enough.

And though some married Duggars get a change of scenery — yes, we see you in Laredo, Jinger — even those longterm voyages outside of Arkansas eventually come to end, often because of scandal. And when you endanger the family business, you end up making an about-face straight into Duggarville. Scroll down to learn about all suspicious ways Jim Bob keeps his children close.
