Jill Duggar Says Nice Things About Marginal Husband, Shares Rare Wedding Photo

It's been a week of ups, downs, insults and compliments for Derick Dillard.

First, the homophobic ex-reality star was blasted by social media users on Father's Day, considering he supports a President who advocates for tearing kids away from their parents at the border.

While wife Jill Duggar praised the dad of her two sons for being a staunch Christian, many Internet users pointed out the hypocrisy of someone who claims to hold these types of religions values...

... yet is also for the sort of cruel immigration policy espoused by Donald Trump.

Think of ALL the children being held in a detention center, separated from their parents. Is that loving? Is it Godly? NOPE!" screamed on critic online.

But we're not here right now to wade into these kinds of controversial political waters.

We're here to point out that Dillard is at the center of another special occasion today:

It's the four-year anniversary of his wedding to Jill, who wed on June 21, 2014 in Springdale, Arkansas.

In honor of the milestone, Jill shared a rare photo from the day she and Derick exchanged vows (and first kissed, per Duggar courtship rules) and wrote a caption that reads as follows:

This man is my favorite! @derickdillard I'm blessed beyond measure to have you as my hubby! #4yearanniversary Ihope God gives us many more years here together! I wanna #growoldtogether.

She wasn't done with the annoying hashtags, either, adding:

#besthubbyever, #bestpapaever, #manofmydreams, #imspoiled and #sograteful.

Of course, not everyone out there feels this way about Dillard.

He was slammed by his very own cousin recently for failing to hold up Christian values, following Derick's ongoing tirade against the LGBT community.

If you'll recall, Dillard was fired by TLC for constantly bashing transgender reality star Jazz Jennings last year.

We could spend a long time reciting the list of mean and close-minded things Dillard has said.

But we'd mostly just be repeating ourselves from past articles about him.

So, instead, on his anniversary, we'll go back in time a bit and recite details from his wedding instead.

Based on a People Magazine article at the time, over 600 cupcakes, 3,000 chocolate-chip cookies and 3,000 root-beer floats were served at the reception for guests to enjoy.

More than 100 immediate family members were in attendance, as were guests from more than 30 states, Jim Bob Duggar told the publication back then.

This was before it came out that he's a messed up individual who molested two of his sisters.

As for the first-ever spit-swap shared between the husband and wife on their big day?

"It was worth the wait," Jill told the magazine.

How very sweet.

Too bad we can't say the same about her bigoted husband.
