The #duggar family reportedly has a feud on their hands and surprisingly, it is the in-laws having the issues. #Jeremy Vuolo and Derick Dillard are at the head of a heated feud about missionary work. This is ironic at best considering both men are said to be men of faith and if they practice what they preach, there shouldn't be any bad blood. Vuolo and Dillard have reportedly been taking cheap shots at one another and now, Michelle Duggar has weighed in with a new blog post.

What started the Duggar feud?

According to the Hollywood Gossip, the Duggar #Family Feud began when Jeremy Vuolo did a sermon about missionaries and those who pretend to be such.

It appeared it was a direct dig at the Dillards who have been serving as missionaries for a few years now. Their journey has been documented and highly criticized, especially when they have asked for money and donations through their own website. Vuolo apparently takes issue with that as a pastor and wanted his thoughts to be known.

Adding fuel to the fire, Jinger Vuolo and Jill Dillard do not follow one another on social media and their husbands do not as well. This is highly unusual given how close the Duggar family is. Jinger only recently joined Instagram and with her sister not following her, there have been some red flags. There has been talk that there is a rift between them because Jinger is not in the "moms club." She has yet to announce a pregnancy and she has been married for seven months.

Both Dillard and Jessa Seewald found themselves pregnant shortly after getting married and both will become moms to two little boys this year.

Which son-in-law is right?

Derick Dillard has been heavily criticized for the way he chooses to handle life. He was called out for taking his pregnant wife and child on a mission trip to an area that wasn't safe. Jeremy Vuolo is less strict on Jinger Vuolo and she has even been known to wear pants. This is a huge deal because the Duggar women are taught to be submissive and follow their husband's lead. Dillard is more controlling while Vuolo lets his wife have an opinion. He doesn't buy into the be seen not heard rule most of the other men do.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the coming weeks. Jill Dillard should be having her second child within the next few weeks. With Joy-Anna's wedding over with and Season 4 of Counting On airing, the Duggar family will be making headlines all summer long at a minimum.
