The Duggars continue to fascinate TLC viewers, but we have a hunch some fans are just waiting for the next bombshell to drop. The reality family has suffered several scandals in recent years, the most serious of which was the reveal of Josh Duggar’s criminal past. As if that scandal wasn’t bad enough, the family continued to court controversy with their spin control in the weeks and months that followed.

But not all scandals are created equal, and some have been a lot sillier. Only the Duggars would consider it scandalous for young women to wear pants, for example, but their brand of modesty is a very conservative one! Keep scrolling down to read all the things the Duggars would probably prefer you didn’t know…

1. Let’s begin with the Josh Duggar scandal that rocked the world.

We’ll tackle this saga first so we don’t have to dwell on it for long. In 2015, In Touch obtained a Washington County Sheriff’s Office report regarding eldest son Josh Duggar admitting to multiple acts of sexual molestation during his teen years, including some perpetrated on his own sisters.

2. And don’t forget how Jim Bob Duggar responded to Josh’s misdeeds.

The story gets worse from there, unfortunately. Duggar patriarch Jim Bob Duggar waited more than a year to report Josh’s indiscretions to the local authorities, and he blocked them from interviewing teen when they launched a felony investigation in 2006.

3. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar even defended their son’s actions to Megyn Kelly.

And after the news broke, Jim Bob and wife Michelle actually got defensive about their eldest son in an interview with Megyn Kelly. “Looking back, we did the best we could under the circumstances,” Jim Bob told the then-Fox News host. “He was still a kid. He was still a juvenile. He wasn’t an adult. This was not rape or anything like that. This was touching someone over their clothes.” (Even Jill and Jessa defended Josh, saying it’s a “lie” that Josh is a child molester.)

4. On their TLC show, Jill and Jessa Duggar didn’t tell the whole truth about their “healing process.”

Following that Josh Duggar bombshell, TLC rightly canceled 19 Kids & Counting and debuted a new docu-series, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, focusing on some of the more law-abiding Duggar kids. It could have been a golden opportunity for the famous family to address their dark past directly and honestly, but instead, we caught them lying about their “healing process.”

5. Duggar family tutor Tabitha Paine married a man convicted of sexual assault.

The Duggars were once again implicated in a sex scandal when the news broke that their family friend Timothy Robertson — the now-husband of the family’s live-in tutor, Tabitha Paine — was once convicted of criminal sexual conduct in the third degree for having nonconsensual sex with a woman. He pled guilty to the crime but insisted to In Touch he was “falsely accused.”

6. Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth (maybe) had sex before their wedding.

OK, with all that nastiness covered, let’s move on to more innocuous scandals. Pre-marital sex, for example, isn’t a no-no for most people these days, but it is for the Duggars. So imagine our surprise a year ago when we heard that Joy-Anna Duggar and then-fiancé Austin Forsyth had been having sex since 2016 and had even weathered a pregnancy scare! (Granted, that news has never been confirmed, so take it with a grain of salt.)

7. “Rebel” Jinger Duggar started wearing pants and shorts. The horror!

Speaking of Duggar rule-breaking, Jinger Duggar broke with family tradition when she started wearing pants and shorts instead of the de rigueur skirts. (And don’t even get us started on her sleeveless dresses. Sacré bleu!)

8. Michelle Duggar went against her own rules and was caught in pants instead of a skirt.

A little teenage rebellion is to be expected, but we were floored when Michelle joined her daughter and traded her skirts for pants. Of course, her display of relative immodesty wasn’t enough for some people, especially because she and Jim Bob were vacationing on the beaches of Hawaii at the time. “Those clothes are just going to be hot and heavy and miserable,” that critic said.

9. Jana Duggar’s rumored boyfriend didn’t follow Duggar courtship rituals and was more liberal than her family…like that’s hard?

Despite that pants-wearing, Michelle is probably still strict when it comes to her courtship rules. So we’re guessing she’s not too hot on Jana Duggar’s rumored beau Caleb Williams since he is “somewhat more liberal” than the Duggars and doesn’t “really” follow the courtship rituals, according to a Radar source.
