Oh good, Anna Duggar is pregnant again! Because nothing changes a pedophile/adulter's sinful ways like having another baby!

People shared a timeline of Josh and Anna Duggar’s marriage, and it makes sense why fans would be talking about them doing this to save their marriage. They met back in 2006. The couple now has four children together and a fifth on the way. They got married in September of 2008. For a long time, Josh and Anna Duggar seemed to have a perfect marriage. Not long after getting married, Josh shared that they wanted a big family.
In May of 2016, it was revealed that Josh Duggar was accused of molesting five underage girls back when he was a teenager. The show 19 Kids and Counting was actually canceled over this news. Then in August, it came out that Josh had been using the website Ashley Madison to find women to meet up with women to cheat on his wife. He apologized, went to sex rehab and now they have another baby on the way. This is causing the speculation that they did it to save their marriage, but only time will tell if they can make their relationship work.
