Anna Duggar Likely to Take the Blame for Husband Josh Duggar's Cheating

Once the scandal first broke online it didn't take Josh Duggar long to admit that he had indeed cheated on his wife of seven years, Anna Duggar, while using an Ashley Madison account. The 27-year-old has spent the last few years peddling family values and pretending to be a Christian role model while poor Anna has delivered four babies in rapid succession. She has remained silent since her husband admitted to living a fairly active double life and insiders are now saying that regardless of what Duggar has done, divorce simply won't be an option.

According to a new report by People, "Anna Duggar will likely not be leaving her husband Josh despite his admitted infidelity, a source with ties to the family tells PEOPLE. “Anna will not leave him,” says the source. “As with her in-laws, she is turning more to her faith than ever, she and Josh are probably praying around the clock right now, I would assume.”  The source says that from their knowledge of the Duggar family, Josh and Anna, “no way is she leaving him” – and says it would not come as a surprise if “on some level” Anna tries to “absorb some of the blame.”

“Maybe not publicly, ever, but privately, there will be some suggestion of whether or not she should have been more aware of the pressures Josh was under, of the issues he was facing, and how she could have better counseled him or helped him,” says the source. “She is fully and permanently committed to her marriage and her children. And she’ll have the support of Jim Bob and Michelle and everyone else in their circle in terms of staying with him and making this work,” continues the source. “Divorce is not even something that will be discussed.”

Last spring Duggar admitted to molesting four of his younger sisters well over a decade ago and at the time his wife spoke out professing her support for him. As horrific as that situation was, Duggar hadn't done anything directly to Anna to cause her pain. This situation is entirely different and it's hard to imagine that she is being so forgiving of the hurt and public scrutiny that his cheating has brought to them.

While the Duggar family will no doubt push Anna to stay married, do you think that she is having second thoughts now? Is Anna trapped in this marriage and if so do you think that there's any chance that she'll break free of the controlling Duggar family?
