‘Counting On’: Duggar Family Followers Can’t Agree on Which Duggar Spouse Will Leave Their Marriage First
Jinger Duggar just announced her second pregnancy, and Joy-Anna Duggar is inching closer to her due date, too. While the Duggar family seems to be consistently growing, some family followers are wondering when the supersized clan will shrink due to divorce. The family generally doesn’t believe in divorce, and several of the Duggar offspring have opted for a covenant marriage, that hasn’t stopped speculation. So, which Duggar in-law is the most likely to abandon their marriage? Family followers have some theories.
Family followers think Anna Duggar has the most reasons to abandon her marriage
Anna Duggar has weathered back-to-back scandals standing next to her troubled husband, Josh Duggar. First, it was revealed that Josh molested several of his siblings as a teen, then he admitted to cheating on his wife. While Anna has yet to desert her marriage, insiders claim their life together is not a happy one. According to a Reddit user whose connection to the famous family was verified, Anna appeared quite unhappy for several years following the scandals, and Josh didn’t seem particularly repentant.
Sure, Anna has stayed thus far, but it’s always possible she’ll decide to end the marriage the next time a scandal threatens to topple the family’s media empire. That scandal could be just around the corner, too. Family followers strongly believe that Josh was at the center of an investigation carried out by the Department of Homeland Security back in November 2019.
Some fans think Ben Seewald will tire of his boring life
Ben Seewald began courting Jessa Duggar when he was just 17 years old. It’s been almost 6 years since they tied the knot, and they’ve added three children to the family during that time. Everything seems to be going well enough, at least publicly, but family critics can’t help but wonder if Ben is actually pleased with the life he’s carved out for himself.
At 25, he has yet to build a career of his own, and frankly, it looks like he may not have a choice in the matter. Derick Dillard has suggested Jim Bob Duggar prevents the Duggar boys from seeking employment outside of the family. With two sisters who have moved away and started careers of their own, family critics have pegged Ben as the most likely Duggar in-law to suffer from FOMO. Whether or not they will lead to a divorce, however, remains to be seen.
Insiders all seem to agree that Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson are not a well-suited match
Josiah Duggar’s marriage is one that hasn’t made a ton of sense to family followers. The 23-year-old father of one has seemed sullen and unhappy ever since his 2018 wedding. There might be a good reason for his recent demeanor, though. Insiders have claimed both Josiah and his bride, Lauren Swanson, were heavily encouraged to tie the knot because they were both problematic teens. An insider who spoke with The Hollywood Gossip claimed that Josiah and Lauren are only playing along because Jim Bob is footing the bill for their lifestyle.
The insider suggests that fans shouldn’t expect the marriage to last if something were to happen to the family’s TV show. It’s hard to say which spouse would cut ties, though. Fans think Lauren is just as unhappy as Josiah, although she appears to be better at hiding it.
