Anna Duggar’s First Post Since Josh’s Sentencing Proves She’s Staying With Him

Josh Duggar’s conviction on child sexual abuse charges has a lasting effect on his family. Once a united household, the “19 Kids & Counting” family is divided among the disgraced eldest child. What the Duggars think about Josh’s jail term depends on who you talk to. His parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, have stood by his side, and Michelle has even filed a petition with the examining magistrate for leniency. His siblings are a different story. Sister Jinger and her husband have… called Josh a hypocriteand sister Jill and her husband have on their website that prison may be Josh’s only hope to reform his ways.

But perhaps Josh’s wife, Anna Duggar, has been most affected by the ordeal. The couple married in 2008 and soon started a large family of their own; their seventh child, Madyson, was born in October 2021 amid her father’s trial. Without work experience and relatively low equity (per Life & Style), Anna is reportedly dependent on her in-laws.

Since Josh is also said to have harassed several of his own sisters in the past (via The Washington Post) and allegedly using Ashley Madison’s cheat site (per The New Yorker), many wonder if Anna would leave him.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of sexual assault, help is available. Visit the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network website or contact the RAINN National Helpline at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).

Anna Duggar celebrates her engagement anniversary

On June 23, Anna Duggar broke her social media silence by posting to her Instagram stories on her birthday. “Officially 34,” she wrote, adding that she was “tripping to visit my bestie.” But she also wrote “Fourteen Years Since I Said YES!” — referencing her engagement to husband Josh Duggar — and stated that her driving playlist consisted solely of the song “Even If” by Christian band MercyMe. Per AZ Lyrics, the song is about holding on to faith in difficult times, even when it seems that prayers for help go unanswered. Anna quoted part of the verse: “You have been faithful, you have been good / All my days / Jesus, I will cling to you / Whatever happens.”

The message was clear: Anna will stay with her husband and trust that God will take care of her for the next 12 years while serving his time. This does not bring her much sympathy for the Duggar Snark Reddit Board, with some members questioning whether Anna’s “road trip” was actually a conjugal prison visit. “Anna chose to be a martyr for… [Josh]”Instead of taking this bright red flag as a reason to re-evaluate her life, her marriage/who her husband is and the safety of her children, this season she’s going into the see life as a test of her faith and endure these hardships and make the best of the situation. She cannot be helped or reasoned.”
