  1. No she will wait on him & want divorce him if it means still living in a shed with her inlaws she will. She has no job skills that I know of so she’ll have to depend on her inlaws for support.

    1. As a catholic I think she should serve him with divorce papers while he’s in prison where he belongs. How does she know if he ever crossed the line with her babies. Anna can do better!

  2. People need to give the duggers space. All of them,I pray Annna seeks the Lord and allow him to direct her path,she has allot to deal with all the kids.Can she and the kids go visit him?

  3. I am not Anna, this didn’t happen to me, if I was married to a sicko like Josh, knowing what he did to his own sisters’ whom I have the highest regard. Jill, Jessa, and Jinger have grown into beautiful and intellectual women with families of their own. But what happened to them was wrong. I have no idea why their parents didn’t stand up for them. We all come from a dysfunctional society? But that’s life!! No one is perfect!!! As for Anna she should kick his behind to the curb, serve him with divorce papers, definitely don’t move in with his parent’s. Anna is smart, she’ll land on her feet and her children not Josh’s children which he lost all his rights to be their father. I wish Anna the best.
