Are Josh and Anna Duggar Having Marriage Trouble? This Major Clue Could Mean Yes
They’ve already been through so much together. But could Josh and Anna Duggar – who share five kids – be headed for divorce?
It wouldn’t be the first time a Duggar got divorced, though it’s certainly not as common in this tight-knit, deeply religious family as it is elsewhere in the nation. But it would be understandable if Josh and Anna did decide to call it quits after all the drama they’ve been through.
The pair hasn’t made a public statement on the status of their relationship yet. But eagle-eyed fan noticed one very important detail that could mean the end of this Duggar couple.
What happened with Josh and Anna Duggar?
The eldest Duggar son married Anna Keller back in 2008. Their marriage since then hasn’t been easy – not by any stretch. While it’s clear that they love each other and shared a happy life together, in 2015 everything came crashing down. That’s when InTouch broke the news that Josh Duggar had been accused of sexual molestation of five young girls when he was a teenager. Four of his victims were his own sisters.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, soon afterwards news broke that Josh had been conducting extramarital affairs using an Ashley Madison profile (this is a website dedicated solely to adultery). Things got so bad that Josh had to leave his job with the Family Research Council in Washington DC. The couple moved back home to Arkansas.
How did Josh and Anna work things out?
Anna Duggar chose to stick by her man in the face of the scandal. Josh enrolled in counseling for sex addiction and made public apologies to all the people he had wronged. And then they made the ultimate statement of unity by having another child together.
“For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives together as a family,” Anna wrote when the pair announced they were expecting a fifth child. “Beauty comes from ashes,” Anna said of their newest pregnancy announcement. Their child was born in September 2017.
Why do fans think Josh and Anna Duggar’s marriage is on the rocks?
But now that could all change. On March 15, 2019, the couple listed their renovated farmhouse for sale seemingly out of nowhere. They had acquired the property in 2015 for the rock bottom price of $55,000 since it was a foreclosure. But now the stunning 3,000 square foot family home is being offered for $299,000, according to Trulia.
Of course selling a house doesn’t indicate an automatic road to divorce. But it does raise some pertinent questions. Even if Josh and Anna Duggar are planning on having more babies, why couldn’t they just stay put? Could this home sale prove that they’re dividing up assets and going their separate ways?
Anna Duggar just posted sweet messages on Instagram for Saint Patrick’s Day. But everyone knows social media doesn’t always tell the whole story. When it comes to figuring out if Josh and Anna’s marriage is solid, we’ll just have to wait and see.
