The 1 Reason Why Joy Duggar and Austin Forsyth Have the Strongest Marriage in the Family

Joy Duggar and Austin Forsyth have been married since 2017. Together, their relationship has already seen its share of trials and triumphs, and it seems that no matter what goes wrong, these two always come out even stronger than they were before. Though Duggar was very young when she married Forsyth, there is one reason why these two arguably have the strongest relationship in the family.

Duggar was very young when she wed Forsyth

In the Duggar family, it’s not uncommon to wed very early on in adulthood. But Duggar so far holds the record for the sibling to marry the youngest. Duggar had supposedly always had a crush on Forsyth, who is a few years older than her. But since there was an age gap, Forsyth didn’t look at Duggar in any type of way until she was an adult.

The two have said that once Duggar grew into a young woman, something clicked between her and her now-husband. The two started courting when Duggar was only 17, and they were married by the time she was 19.

Fans have slowly started to see how much these two care about each other

Duggar and Forsyth spend all of their time together, but their relationship seems to be more than just a husband who makes the money and a wife who cares for the kids (the way typical Duggar marriages work). Duggar and Forsyth appear to truly be a team. They work together in their house-flipping business, and it’s clear that Duggar actually does help her husband do the work.

The two always post photos together on social media, and it usually explains how one of them helped the other. They appear genuinely in love in all of their images.

Losing their daughter has made it clear they can handle anything

Anyone can build a strong marriage, but going through hardships often prompts couples to find strength within each other that they never knew they had. And when Duggar and Forsyth lost their baby girl last year at 20 weeks, they built a whole new foundation for a strong marriage.

Many people go through miscarriages. But Duggar’s miscarriage was far less common than most. She and Forsyth lost their daughter, Anabell, at 20 weeks — much further along than most miscarriages normally occur. It was extremely hard for the young couple to go through, but it arguably made their relationship stronger than any other. If they can get through losing a child, they can get through anything.

It’s unclear when Duggar and Forsyth will announce another pregnancy

The Duggars mostly want to have as many kids as possible. It’s been seven months since Duggar’s miscarriage, and she and Forsyth still haven’t announced another pregnancy. The two likely needed a lot of time to heal. Having a miscarriage at any point is difficult, but losing a baby so far along can be even more difficult to recover from. Duggar and Forsyth will likely continue to have children, but it could be a little while before Duggar feels ready to carry another baby.
