John David Duggar & Abbie Burnett: NO 1 CURR About Jim Bob's Rules!

by at .  Updated at .

Looks like Jim Bob Duggar has two more rebels on his hands!

In the past few years, much has been made of the various ways in which the children of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are flouting the strict system of rules they were raised with.

One of the most obvious examples is the fact that Jinger Duggar has started wearing pants instead of the floor-length skirts she was raised with, thus inspiring her sisters to violate the Duggar dress code as well.

But other Duggars are lashing out in ways that are at once more subtle and more substantial.

Chief among them are a pair of unlikely rebels -- John David Duggar and his new bride, Abbie Burnett.
