He’s offering some advice. Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, recently shared a blog post called “How to Love Your Wife Like You Mean It” and it was full of suggestions for other married couples. Derick broke down several of his ideas on the list, including how he and Jill strive to make each other feel “more secure” in their relationship. While explaining his thoughts, Derick revealed why they try to “never be alone in the same room with someone of the opposite gender.”
“Sometimes this is hard and requires more intentionality,” the former Counting On star, 30, wrote. “For example, if I have a private meeting with a female, I may choose to leave the door open, or if Jill needs a repairman to come work on something at the house when I’m gone then she might invite a friend over while he’s there.”
“We realize though that safeguards alone aren’t enough … it is more about the heart and commitment to purity, but they may be helpful in reducing the prevalence of some situations, or even just the appearance of evil,” the TLC alum continued.
Derick said it’s important for couples to discuss what makes them feel the most comfortable in their relationship. In his explanation, the reality star admitted that he and Jill, 28, both have an internet filtering service on their phones and laptops to help them stay accountable with each other. Furthermore, they also both have each other’s social media passwords.
The father of two offered several other tidbits of advice in his post, discussing the importance of time spent with family, making date night a priority, having “lots of good sex” and more. Derick even challenged other pairs to spend every night together during their first year of marriage.
“It may not always be this way, but so far, Jill and I have managed to spend every single night together since we’ve been married,” he wrote. “Again, we’ve only been married a little over 5 years, but so far as it’s possible, we hope to continue the trend.”
