Jill Dillard (formerly Jill Duggar) offered her sister Jessa Duggar (now Jessa Seewald) some helpful tips for a successful marriage recently. Now bear in mind, Jill Dillard has only been married since June, and Jessa Duggar tied the knot on Saturday. Still Jill felt she could impart some wisdom upon Jessa, so that’s exactly what she did.
“Jessa and I shared a lot with us being in relationships and us getting married, and now they are following along,” Jill explains. “We have great examples in our parents that love doesn’t have to end. Spend lots of time together and remember, the honeymoon doesn’t have to end.”
Jill Dillard is now expecting her first child with hubby Derick Dillard, leaving many to wonder how long it might be before Jessa Duggar and her new husband announce that an addition may grace their family as well. This will no doubt provide even more fodder for sharing between the sisters.

Jill admits she enjoyed “walking through relationships” with Jessa before they both got married. That will likely just expand as each of the Duggar girls’ families grow.
Growing up in the 19 Kids and Counting household certainly provided both Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald with strong examples of what a marriage and parenthood is all about. Parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have been married for 30 years now, and always note their strong Christian beliefs as what has held their family together.
Jessa Duggar Seewald admitted right before her wedding that she and Ben hope to have a ‘huge family.’ Their children and those born to Jill and Derick Dillard will be cousins.
“We’re looking forward to seeing more cousins,” Jill Dillard’s husband recently admitted.
Jessa Duggar was probably grateful to her sister Jill Dillard for sharing tips on marriage. Now that she’s a married woman, too, she will likely start putting that advice into action.
