During the past three months, Josh Duggar has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons, and most recently, he’s been taking heat for his porn addiction and extramarital affairs.
Josh’s indiscretions have damaged the entire Duggar family’s reputation, and Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar previously released a statement saying they were “heartbroken” to learn of their son’s actions.
“It’s hurting everyone involved,” a Duggar family source told People magazine. “Everyone feels betrayed.”
However, the person the public is really concerned about is his wife, Anna. When Josh’s molestation scandal came to light, many wondered if his wife knew about his sordid past, and a source suggests his confession to Anna was downplayed.
“We all knew that something had happened, but it definitely wasn’t portrayed in its entirety,” a source close to Anna revealed. “Anna did know, but it was kind of something that was swept under the rug, and nobody made a big deal out of it.”
Anna’s parents still gave the couple “their blessing,” but the source says “there was always something a bit odd about Josh.”
But will Josh’s latest failing be the final straw for Anna, and will she now be seeking a divorce?
Most probably not. “Their faith is in no way rocked by this,” another source close to the Duggars claimed, adding of Anna that, “She is fully and permanently committed to her marriage and her children. Divorce is not even something that will be discussed.”
