Duggar family has been pretty quiet following Josh Duggar’s arrest
Slowly, members of the Duggar family have made statements about Josh’s arrest. Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo, Jill and Derick Dillard, and Amy King have all spoken out about the news. Josh’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar published a post on their family blog.
In addition to the family members making statements, TLC issued a brief message, which you can read here.
Since the arrest, most of the family members have refrained from posting on social media. Additionally, some of them have restricted their Instagram comments, only allowing a handful of people to comment on their posts. Josh’s wife Anna limited her comments but has not issued a statement or shared a social media post since her husband’s arrest.
What’s going on between Josh and Anna Duggar?
A source revealed to The Sun that Anna is still supportive of her husband. According to the source, Josh and Anna won’t be splitting up. She intends to stay with Josh throughout all of this.
The source states:
“Anna is standing by her husband as she always has. She even accompanied Josh to Fayetteville on Thursday so he could turn himself in to authorities. Josh and Anna asked the family to pray for them, and said that they love them.”
Over the years, Josh has gotten himself in a lot of trouble. He molested four of his sisters and a babysitter when he was a teen. That scandal went public in 2015 after Josh and Anna had already tied the knot. He also had multiple accounts on a site called Ashley Madison, which was designed to help married people find affairs. Recently, a porn star alleged that he attempted to kill her when they hooked up. Through it all, Anna has stayed by her husband’s side.
So, are you surprised to hear that Anna is seemingly supporting Josh? Do you think she will ever leave him? Let us know in the comments below.
