Is it just us, or does anyone else think it’s wild Jeremy Vuolo is in his 30s? While, no, he’s old in the grand scheme of life, per say, he’s not exactly a spring chicken compared to Jinger Duggar. Jer just celebrated his 31st birthday earlier this week, and although age is just a number for most people, we’re surprised Jim Bob and Michelle overlooked this lil’ detail. Ya know, the fact that Jinge is only 24. 

The famous family — who star on TLC‘s hit show Counting On — abides by a long list of strict rules including no hand-holding before getting engaged, no private conversations while courting, and no front-hugging, well, pretty much ever. And while most of Jinge’s siblings and their significant others are just a couple years apart, these two are pretty much in different generations. That’s an exaggeration… but you get it. 

That said, Jinger — who gave birth to their daughter Felicity in July — has long been known as the “rebel” child of her family. Not only was she the one to start the pants-wearing trend, but she was also once rumored to be on birth control. When Jinger had been married for 11 months without any baby news, fans began calling her a “birth control rebel” and speculated that the couple was using protection or a “natural family planning” method to avoid getting pregnant. 

In other words, seven years is nothin’ for a majority of the public, but when the Duggars can’t even send a text without their parents knowing, we’re surprised they even considered Jeremy to date their daughter.
