JOSIAH Duggar’s ex-girlfriend Marjorie Jackson broke her moral code by flaunting her long legs in short shorts during a short vacation in New York City.
The 24-year-old took to her Instagram Stories on Monday to share snaps from her vacation in the Big Apple.
Majorie shot the inside of historic Grand Central Terminal, in front of Tribeca’s famous Roxy Hotel and the beautiful St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
A photo taken in New York’s Central Park shows Marjorie and a friend relaxing outside on the grass, with several skyscrapers filling the horizon behind them.
The artist’s legs showed off as she posed alongside her friend in a sleeveless black top and green shorts.
She wore her wavy blonde hair down, as did her traveling companion, as the couple enjoyed the sunny spring day.
Earlier this month, Marjorie broke his family’s dress code again by flaunting her figure in a new photo.
Marjorie hugged her friend in the picture while smiling for the camera.
The duo wore skinny white jeans, but Josiah’s ex-girlfriend completed the look with a tight pink long sleeve shirt and slicked back brunette locks.
Her friend wore a silver sleeveless top instead and also wore her blonde hair up.

Marjorie gushed over the couple’s bond by wishing her friend a happy birthday in the text above the snap.
The Arkansas native doesn’t follow the same standards of modesty as Josiah’s family, which is evident in her recent outfit choices.
Back in April, Marjorie wore a plunging black dress in an Instagram photo to mark her split from the famous family.
In it, Josiah’s ex-girlfriend posed with a friend while wearing a form-fitting, floor-length dress with a deep V-neckline.
She wore her long brunette tresses in loose curls as she smiled in front of a giant sign with the number 50 at the official event.
Marjorie captioned the post with a rain cloud emoji: “An April shower with some highlights of 2023.”
rules of modesty
Patriarch Jim Bob, 57, and his wife Michelle, 56, implemented rules requiring women to wear long skirts and dresses that don’t reveal their bodies.
But last month, Marjorie defied the rules with her ensembles in a series of photos she shared on Instagram.
One of them, in particular, showed Josiah’s ex donning a form-fitting, floor-length dress with a deep V-neckline to a formal event.
However, it wasn’t the first time Marjorie ignored the Counting On star’s conservative dress code.
In December, she posted a photo of herself in fitted white skinny jeans and a sleeveless dusky pink sleeveless bodysuit showing off her curves.
It seems that Marjorie has put her relationship with Josiah and the rest of the Duggar clan well behind.
The couple had been together for several months since April 2015 – just before the eldest Duggar sibling, Josh, was accused of molesting five young girls, including his own sisters, as a teenager.
They met while she was taking Spanish classes with her mother, Analucia, and became close during a missionary trip to El Salvador in December 2014.
He was 18 and she was 17 when they announced they were “courting” in April 2015.
In a video on the TLC website, the then-teens revealed they had started a “courting relationship.”
Marjorie and Josiah stood side by side in front of a backdrop of framed Duggar family photos and a crucifix statue as they discussed their romance in the clip.
Marjorie said, “Advertising is like a date with a specific goal.”
“It’s about getting to know each other better as a group with our families, asking really tough questions and spending more time together with family and friends.”
The half-Guatemalan artist spoke at the Beautiful Girls Retreat in Arkansas in 2015 — an annual event for believing Christian women.
Josiah has since married his wife Lauren, 23, and they recently gave birth to their second child.
