Are the Dillards and Duggars at odds? Fans are heavily speculating this question after Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard skipped the big Duggar Thanksgiving and instead settled for a Friendsgiving.

Yesterday, the Duggar family shared photos from their Thanksgiving celebration. While they didn’t focus too much on who attended, followers quickly realized who didn’t show up for the festivities.

Jill Duggar shared a sign that read “Thanksgiving 2019” on Instagram. Later, she shared a photo that revealed they had Friendsgiving instead. Were they not invited to take part in the big Thanksgiving at the Duggar compound?

There has been speculation for quite some time that there is a rift between Jill Duggar and her parents. Derick Dillard recently accused Jim Bob Duggar of keeping the Counting On profits for himself and not dividing it out properly.

He also revealed that the patriarch negotiated for all of the married couples.

Also, Jill Duggar echoed sentiments about Counting On that Derick Dillard has been claiming for a while. She confirmed they chose to walk away from the show and that the network did not oust them as previously suspected.

Neither Jill Duggar nor Derick Dillard spoke out about why they have not been interacting with the Duggar parents. As more and more time passes, speculation turns into rumors running rampant through social media.

Several followers asked why she no longer spends time at the Duggar compound, but a response has not yet come.

As Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard continue with their lives and building their family, some family members are still interacting with them. Amy Duggar King is often seen with her cousin, and Jill comments on her siblings’ social media posts.

Duggar and Dillard have always marched to the beat of their own drum, including moving to El Salvador to do mission work instead of sticking close to her parents.
