Talk about going from 0 to 100, real quick! Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth have gone from having minimal physical contact to being slammed for their “obscene” public displays of affection. The newlyweds, who clearly can’t keep their hands off each other, were recently called out for engaging in what some Duggar fans are calling immodest behavior! (I know, hard to believe!) While the couple refrained from full hugs, kissing, and all other affections before getting married, it seems like they have thrown all caution to the wind as Duggar blog, Duggar Family News: Life Is Not All Pickles And Hairspray, took a screenshot of the couple, from a scene on the latest Counting On after-show episode, in what some are calling an inappropriate sitting position.
The blog shared this image of Joy sitting on her husband to their site, with the caption: “Who does this in public? She’s sitting on his little willy. Once the Duggars get married they get obscene. Do you think this pose is biblical?”
Clearly, the blog wasn’t alone in its sentiments. Other Duggar fans began to comment in agreement.
“Again—disturbing,” one fan wrote. “The real reason for marriage for the Duggars is physical contact. It’s not normal for these people to only physically connect when married. It’s absolutely absurd!”
“The humility and modesty right out the door,” another added.
“Not normal,” said one Facebook comment. “My husband and I literally never do this…I cannot imagine doing this on camera.”
Another blamed the Duggar’s lack of pre-marriage physical contact on the two’s “obscene” sitting position. “The problem is that they don’t start the dating process until AFTER being married,” they wrote. “She is like a girl in college in her first month of dating someone—the ‘rabbit’ stage.”
“There’s a time and place for affection with your spouse,” said one fan. “This isn’t it.”
Another Duggar follower called the family out for their strict conservative rules. “Modest, modest, modest! Their mantra and then we have this,” they wrote. “Yes, they are married; yes, they are young but they are not in private and it sure isn’t MODEST.”
“Who does this in general? Weird…” added another fan.
