JINGER Dugger and husband Jeremy have admitted they once nearly SPLIT before finding “faith” to work out their troubles.
The reality star got emotional as she opened up about a time when she didn’t think they would make it as a couple.
Speaking ahead of the launch of their new book – The Hope We Hold: Finding Peace in the Promises of God – Jinger revealed there were points during their courtship when she wasn’t sure they had a future together.
Teasing their new project in an interview with Us Weekly, the 27-year-old shared: “There were some ups and downs in that time, and … at one point I kind of froze, and I was like, ‘Do I want to do this?’”
Tearing up at the memory, Jinger admitted she finds it hard to bring up those painful memories.
“That was something for me that was really tough. I don’t like to think about that day,” the mom-of-two said.
“I don’t like to think about that time. But realizing that, OK, that’s something that could help someone [with their own relationship issues] because it’s something that everyone’s going to have to walk through … will we be able to come together as two completely different human beings from different backgrounds and make this work?’”
And it wasn’t just Jinger who had doubts about the relationship, Jeremy, 33, also admitted to not knowing if they would make it.
The former Major League Soccer player said: “What I can say is there was a couple of ups and downs, and there was a moment where it did seem like the relationship was a no-go at that point.
“I just remember thinking one thing is I can’t give up. I don’t have the faith to give up.”
Jinger, who found fame alongside her many siblings on TLC's Counting On, and Jeremy met while on a mission trip to Central America in 2015.
The couple got married in 2016 and are parents to Felicity, two, and new baby Evangeline Jo.
Earlier this month the couple revealed to their followers the reason they don't like sharing photos of their daughters' faces.
One fan asked: "I think I have an idea but why no pictures of your girls? Not being judgemental just asking."
To which Jinger responded: "The girls are doing great! Felicity is absolutely smitten by her little sister and Evy adores Felicity.
"You haven't seen much of them simply because we are wanting to give them a bit more privacy while they're so young,"
She added: "We appreciate how much you love and support our family. It means so much to us! Thanks for asking."
