The Duggar family breakdown may have begun and Jill Duggar Dillard is leading the pack when it comes to family rebellion. Fans have been speculating for some time now that things were beginning to crumble within the strict family domain. There have been signs all along that the Duggar kids are tired of Jim Bob and Michelle's harsh family rules and have been hinting that if Mom And Dad don't ease up a bit chaos would erupt.

Derick Dillard behind Jill's rebellion

Radar Online reports that Jill Duggar Dillard is taking a stand. It has been expected that ever since TLC announced that they were cutting Jill's husband Derick Dillard loose that it would cause Jill to choose up sides in this complicated family reality series upheaval.

It is reported that Jill took her stand over Thanksgiving when she showed up for the family festivities with a new nose piercing and wearing what the Duggars believe to be an inappropriately short skirt that fell above her knees.

Duggar children want changes to family rules

This is not Jill's first stand against the family. In the past few weeks, she has also been wearing blue jeans and tight-fitting shirts. This is something that goes against her parent's life-long teachings. There appears to be a popular opinion on social media that Derick has been influencing Jill to rebel against the old-fashioned family values.

It is also thought that Jill and Derick are bitter about TLC booting Derick from "Counting On." However, tensions have been on the rise over the rules for months now.

The kids are growing up and want to forgo the strict courting and clothing rules, wanting to get out and enjoy their lives a little more freely.

It has already been seen that the courting rules are causing a few issues within the family such as Joy-Anna's alleged shotgun wedding. It was also once believed that Jinger Duggar was the family rebel, but now with the obvious nose stud and short skirt, it is Jill who has the family dynamics on edge.

It is tough being a Duggar and honestly not many could tolerate the Duggar Family way in today's society, and we could just be seeing the beginning of the breakdown with Jill now leading the way. Do you believe Jill is just finding her true self, or is this a total act of rebellion and possibly vengeful move fueled by Derick?

It really looks as if mom and dad Duggar need to reevaluate a few things before everyone and everything that they have believed in for so many years implodes before their very eyes. However, considering that the kids are now adults they are really going to have their work cut out for them.Will Jim Bob and Michelle regain control of their large family, or is change inevitable? Who do you believe will be next to make their move to Duggar rule freedom?
