It’s only been a month since the world learned that Josiah Duggar is engaged to Lauren Swanson, but it looks like the young couple is already tossing aside some of his family’s most strictly-enforced rules.
In fact, if you’re one of the more devout Duggar fans, you may want to sit down for this one…
Ladies and gentlemen, we give you – Lauren’s shins:
Yes, that outfit might not seem particularly revealing, but by Duggar standards, it’s downright risqué.
The famous Duggar dress code dictates that all unmarried women must wear skirts with hems that fall safely below their knees.
In the interest of playing it safe, Josiah’s sisters typically wore floor-length skirts and dresses.
As you can see from the photo below, Lauren has mostly followed suit.
But on her recent trip to San Antonio with Josiah and family, Lauren favored a slightly less conservative look:
"Enjoyed a beautiful evening in San Antonio on the river walk, and checking out the Alamo with Lauren and the family!" Josiah captioned the photo.
Typically, Duggar kids aren’t allowed to have social media profiles until after they’re engaged, but a special exception has been made for Josiah due to the fact that this is not his first relationship.
Josiah courted Marjorie Jackson back in 2015, but the romance ended abruptly and without explanation.
Fans still aren’t sure what led the couple to call it quits, but the breakup helped bolster Josiah’s reputation as being much more progressive than his siblings and taking an almost-modern view of dating and relationships.
The fact that his girlfriend feels comfortable wearing playing fast and loose with the Duggar dress code has only cemented that view of the 21-year-old reality star:
"Pls let her wear whatever she wants! You seem to be the cool Duggar!" commented one fan on Josiah’s photo.
"A woman should be able to express her self anyway she want! There is nothing wrong with a good pair of jeans! Break free from this ridiculousness!"
As In Touch Weekly points out, planning for Josiah and Lauren’s wedding is already underway, and it seems Si can’t wait for the big day.
On a recent outing, he and Lauren were chaperoned by his younger brother Jason.
Josiah posted a pic of the excursion with a caption reading, "Third wheel problems."
We guess Jinger’s not the only rebel in the family!
