Was 'Counting On' Star Abbie Duggar Forced to Quit Her Job?

By

Longtime viewers of the Duggar family — either on their original TLC series 19 Kids and Counting or its spinoff Counting On — know that the women in the reality TV family are not allowed to have jobs outside the home. 

However, fans thought that was going to change with the arrival of John David Duggar's bride-to-be Abbie Burnett. She was a registered nurse when she met John David and was very passionate about her profession. 

In a recent episode of Counting On, Abbie revealed she had been working as a nurse for one year, and decided on the career path after taking care of her terminally ill grandparents.
