14Trapped In A Duggar Marriage
According to The Hollywood Gossip, some sources claim that while Anna is actually quite miserable in her marriage, but she won't leave Josh because she would otherwise have no means to support herself and her children.
Because of their beliefs, Anna and Josh may not have truly considered divorcing after Josh's scandals came to light. It's possible that the pair was committed to seeing the marriage through from the very get-go, although we have to imagine there was at least some truth to all of those
rumors and reports regarding her contemplating a life sans Josh.
One theory as to why these two are still side by side is, of course, their conservative faith and values regarding marriage and eternity, the other possibility is much darker and way sadder.
The Duggar money train is one that Josh and Anna seem to rely on to an extent and without that Anna would be left with five children, only a homeschool education that stopped when she "graduated at age 16," and very little support from her family. A few of her siblings would be happy to help her leave Josh as her brother and sister are both divorced and her brother has been very vocal regarding his disdain for Josh, but Anna's parents are not likely to get behind a divorce.
They are even more conservative that Michelle and Jim Bob!
