Jill Duggar is loving married life with new husband Derick Dillard. Big surprise, we know. They've been shouting their love from the rooftops from day one.

Jill Duggar with Husband Derick Dillard

The 19 Kids and Counting lovebirds, who initially began courting online after being set up by her father Jim Bob, tied the knot last month in a magical ceremony.

They've since returned from their honeymoon and are very pleased with married life, sharing nauseatingly cute photos of themselves constantly.

While undeniably thrilled for Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard, this is bittersweet in a sense for her parents, as their brood is finally starting to grow up.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will still see the newlyweds on a regular basis, but they are clearly establishing a family of their own, which is healthy.

By all accounts, they're thriving, and it's hard to criticize the duo for oversharing on social media when it all stems from such genuine happiness.

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard got married just last month, and sources say the newlyweds are already hoping to follow in the footsteps of Jill's parents by angling for their own reality series.

Insiders claim that the reason Jill has been sharing so many private photos like the one above to her open, public Instagram account is that she's trying to drum up interest in her home life to help build an audience for a future TLC show.

Per the rules of her family, Jill Duggar did not kiss husband Derick Dillard until they got married on June 21.

But that first kiss between the couple has snowballed into some serious makeup sessions since, with Jill and Derick getting (kind of) hot and (a tad bit) heavy in a recent set of honeymoon photos.

And the pair couldn't keep its lips off each other over the weekend, either.

The 19 Kids and Counting star posted the following romantic image to Instagram, including with it a caption that reads:

"Happy Independence Day! So grateful for our Godly founding fathers! #4thofjuly #jilldillard #derickdillard #independenceday #19kidsandcounting."

"My sweet husband grilling our dinner yesterday," Jill captioned one photo.

It's been a hard road to the altar for Jill and Derick, so it stands to reason that their honeymoon would be a simple getaway in which they'd have plenty of time to "celebrate."

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard got married exactly one week ago yesterday. How do we know? Well, the giddy newlyweds celebrated their "weekiversary" by sharing honeymoon photos with fans.

The couple still hasn't revealed the location of their honeymoon, but based on Jill and Derick's wedding registry, we're guessing it's someplace nearby and very cheap.

And based on the string of exclamation points and emojis that accompanied the photo, we're guessing Jill is enjoying married life in a big way.

For the most part, Jill and Derick abided by the strict Duggar courtship rules, meaning Jill's first kiss happened after she and Derick were pronounced man and wife.

Fortunately, she says it was "worth the wait."

As first kisses go, Jill Duggar's first kiss may be among the most memorable. The new wife's assessment of the long-awaited wedding day lip lock?

"It was so worth the wait," she tells People.

The duo exchanged vows at Cross Church in her hometown of Springdale, Ark., in front of more than 1,000 guests, including every one of Jill's 18 siblings.

The wedding of Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard finally arrived on Saturday, and it featured the princess dress to end all princess dresses. Two of them, in fact.

The Duggars' youngest daughter, four-year-old Josie, served as a flower girl. Duggar Number 19 was born prematurely at 1.5 pounds, but is now thriving.

"She got on her princess dress finally," mom Michelle Duggar said. "She has been begging to put it on. That is the most awesome princess dress ever."

Jill Duggar had a princess dress of her own, from Ava Laurenne Bride in Fredericksburg, Va. It was an Allure Romance gown with Swarovski crystals.

With it came a chapel length train that co-shop owner Wendy Rivera changed from an originally strapless dress into the "modest, yet elegant," gown Jill wanted.

Then, using lace from a veil, Rivera and seamstress Moni Reeise created a custom top that fit in perfectly with the rest of Jill Duggar's wedding dress.

19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar is probably up to 19 kisses (at least) with new husband Derick Dillard after tying the knot Saturday in Arkansas.

The religious couple, as you're likely aware if you know who they are, her shared their first kiss EVER at their wedding, in accordance with their beliefs.

Much has been made of the fact that when Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard, they had never done more - physically - than hold hands. But their bond is deep.

From the moment they were introduced by her dad Jim Bob, the two felt an undeniable connection, one that only grew over Skype, and at last in person.

Here's a look back at the duo's magical road to the altar, including when they first heard of one another, when they first spoke, met, got engaged and more!

Their First Meeting (Sort Of)!
The Arkansas natives grew up within 45 minutes of each other, but didn't meet until late 2011. Jill recalled when Derick stopped by while caroling with a church group, and not long after, "Derick contacted my dad and asked if he would be a prayer partner during his two-year term in Nepal."

You may now kiss the bride ... awkwardly, because she's never experienced that before and neither has he! Hey, at least they're in it together, right?

Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard Saturday in Springdale, Ark., and their wedding also marked the duo's first kiss (though they have full-frontal hugged).

See the unforgettable moment below!

In keeping with Duggar family dating rules, the 19 Kids and Counting star, 23, decided to wait until marriage before even locking lips with her beloved Derick, 25.

Prior to saying "I do," the TLC lovebirds had never done more than hold hands and hug once, which they did only after they got engaged in April.

Even that constituted rule-breaking of sorts, but we've decided to let it slide.

"We're just really trying to keep our relationship focused not on the physical but on communication and continuing to learn more about each other," Jill explained.

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard were greatly anticipating that.

"I think it is safer and makes it more special to wait to kiss until your wedding day," Jill said of saving her first kiss for marriage, as shown on her TLC show.

[UPDATE: See the married couple's first kiss photo below!]

"To save the physical side of your marriage for your wedding day and not going further than you should ... we both just want to have no regrets."

That was all good with Derick, who adds, "You can really get to know each other on every level without the physical part of it. I am the most blessed man to have Jill."
