Josh Duggar had a rough year. First outed for sexually abusing his sisters, Duggar also had his Ashley Madison account discovered, his affairs made public, and his adult film habit made public. The man who called homosexuality an “attack on family values” is apparently a ginormous hypocrite. His actions — and the discovery of said actions — have had terrible effects on the people around him, especially his wife Anna.
Anna Duggar has finally broken her silence on the matter. It broke her heart to hear about his infidelity. Josh’s two younger sisters Jessa and Jill were also upset by the news.
The family says they’re staying strong in the wake of the upheaval. There will be a three-part miniseries called Jill and Jessa: Counting On where the family discusses the fallout from Josh Duggar’s personal implosion.
Josh Duggar is a vile sh*thead excuse for a human, but it’s important to remember that the other members of his family have done nothing wrong and still have to deal with his awful behavior in a very public way. Anna’s in a tough spot; she has children with Josh, she doesn’t have a source of income, and she lives in a culture that would shame her for a divorce.
The Duggars belong to a particular type of fundamental Christianity called Quiverfull, which involves a very strict conformity to a male hierarchy — subservient women, home-schooling, and having as many children as possible.
