We are truly saddened by Anna Duggar's reaction to Josh's extramarital affairs

Anna Duggar, according to People magazine, will not likely be leaving her cheating, philandering, child-molesting husband, Josh Duggar.

This one is hard to swallow. I can let the Josh Duggar scandals fall into the bin of "he is a terrible person" and, thus, I am not all that shocked about the Ashley Madison news. But when I read this, I felt terrible.

A source “close to the family” told People, “Anna will not leave him. As with her in-laws, she is turning more to her faith than ever. She and Josh are probably praying around the clock right now, I would assume.”

That isn’t the most shocking part the source reveals, going on to add, “Maybe not publicly, ever, but privately, there will be some suggestion of whether or not she should have been more aware of the pressures Josh was under, of the issues he was facing, and how she could have better counseled him or helped him.”

At this point, if you are anything like me, you are furious. But the source isn’t done making our blood boil.

The source then says, “She is fully and permanently committed to her marriage and her children. And she’ll have the support of Jim Bob and Michelle and everyone else in their circle in terms of staying with him and making this work. Divorce is not even something that will be discussed.”

All of these unbelievably infuriating statements fall well within the realm of possibility. Remember when Michelle mentioned on camera about how no matter what you feel like, you should “be ready to submit” to your husband for sex? In a religious sect that preaches that women are far inferior than the men, how else is Anna supposed to feel other than this is somehow her fault?

I could understand Anna staying to try to work things out for the sake of her family and children, but to accept any of his wrongdoing as her own: no. Just, no.
