Did Joy-Anna Forsyth replace her controlling father, Jim Bob Duggar, with a toxic husband, Austin Forsyth? Some fans think so, especially after seeing a recent video of the couple together. Keep reading for all of the details and see what fans have to say.
Many 19 Kids & Counting and Counting On fans believe that Jim Bob is controlling of his wife Michelle and their 19 children. This is due to the many strict rules he’s put in place for them to follow over the years.
Fans feel that the kids leaving their parents’ home allows them to live their lives how they want to and have a bit more freedom. For example, most of the adult women who have moved out now wear pants instead of skirts and dresses. This may seem minor, but it’s a big deal for the Duggars. Joy-Anna Forsyth is one of the girls who now wear pants.
Now, fans are beginning to wonder if Joy-Anna Forsyth is controlled by her husband Austin the same way she was controlled by her father for her whole life.
Joy-Anna Forsyth Replaced Controlling Father With Toxic Husband?
On Reddit, a Duggar Snarker shared a screenshot from Joy-Anna’s recent YouTube video. In the snap, Austin is looking at his wife as she talks to fans. And some viewers think it looks as if “he monitors every thing she says or puts on the internet.”
Someone else added, “He certainly puts out some strong controlling vibes!”
Another chimed in, “The more things get posted on here the more uncomfortable I am by their relationship.”
“He always looks at her like he tolerates being in her presence,” added one more Duggar snarker. Several think the couple is unhappy and incompatible as well.

More of Austin’s actions in the new video got fans talking as well. In the video, Joy-Anna Forsyth debuted her new haircut to Austin. Rather than complimenting his wife, he said he doesn’t hate the new look. Then, he proceeded to show her that he would like it better a couple of inches longer. Many fans love Joy-Anna’s haircut but were disappointed by Austin’s reaction.
One fan commented on her post and asked, “Is he always this much of a jerk?” Someone else added, “Austin’s reaction though..geez dude, give your wife a compliment.” Others called him “mean” and “rude.”
Hopefully, Austin isn’t actually toxic and Joy-Anna is happy. But fans are certainly worried after watching this new video and seeing how Austin and Joy-Anna interact with one another.
