The latest episode of Jinger (Duggar) Vuolo and husband Jeremy Vuolo's podcast "Hope We Hold" has some fans fuming. The young couple recorded an episode focused on how to stay "encouraged" when you're single but want to get married, and also what they have learned during their three whole years of marriage.

Many were quick to point out that Jinger was just 22 when she started dating Vuolo and doesn't really understand what being a single adult is like.

Related to what you're reading:


"Jinger was single for like 5 mins. Don’t think she knows much about that topic," one person commented on her Instagram post promoting the show.

Another wrote, "Im 32 and I’ve been married 6 years And I wouldn’t dream of giving marriage or dating advice to anyone! Everyone is different. Holding up your life as a example to others seems very conceited to me."

"Yikes, you were not single long, you married well. I don’t know anything and I’ve been married 20 years," a third added.


Someone else noted that the whole tone of the episode and its premise was insulting.

"That kind of makes it sounds like there's something wrong with you if you're single, the whole 'staying hopeful' angle. Looking to be married is the wrong way to be in a relationship. You shouldn't want to be married until you're already in love with someone, and even then, maybe marriage isn't right for you. Make sure you don't disparage those who are single. It's insulting."


The podcast isn't the only drama surrounding the family right now. There's been ongoing turmoil between Jinger's brother-in-law, Derick Dillard, and the family patriarch Jim Bob.

Dillard recently went off on both in an Instagram post TLC made promoting the premiere of the new season of "Counting On."

"Really?! This show is not anything close to reality. From what we’ve seen, not accurate at all. Maybe I’ll start a livestream during episodes, critiquing what is really going on in real time," he commented.


Later in the comment thread, someone complained that Jim Bob is on the show too frequently. Dillard had thoughts on that, too.

"That's because [the show is] still under his control, and he will attack the victims if they threaten his show." Dillard said, and added that Jim Bob "humiliated and threatened" Jill when they tried to leave the show.

Dillard has been clear that his issues are only with Jim Bob and not with any of the other family members.
