Anna Duggar posted a quote about forgiveness days before Josh Duggar’s child molestation scandal broke. Now many are asking just what the 19 Kids and Counting reality TV star knew about the Duggars’ secrets, reported People.
At 26, Anna has seemed to be the perfect wife to Josh, known as the oldest son in the religious and conservative Duggar clan. They have three children, and she is pregnant with their fourth.
But even before police reports circulated that he molested five underage girls when he was a teenager, Anna shared a quote on forgiveness.
“The three most beautiful and liberating words in the English language are these: ‘I forgive you.’ – Lon Solomon.”
And Anna wasn’t alone in sharing meaningful quotes on that day.
“Do right and risk the consequences,” posted Josh, reflecting the statement of soldier and Texas governor Sam Houston.
But what did Anna know even before she married into the famous Duggar family? It now turns out that she was aware of exactly what had happened two years prior to Josh’s marriage proposal.
“I was surprised at his openness and humility and at the same time didn’t know why he was sharing it. For Josh, he wanted not just me but my parents to know who he really was – even very difficult past mistakes.”
As the Inquisitr reported, although TLC has pulled the 19 Kids and Counting show from its current schedule, it is not yet known if it will be permanently cancelled.
There has been some discussion of a spin-off featuring the four newlyweds in the Duggars dynasty: Jill and Derick Dillard and Jessa and Ben Seewald.
However, with four advertisers thus far fleeing the show, it may be difficult for TLC to garner support to continue 19 Kids in any format.
But at least one 19 Kids and Counting mystery has been solved since the child molestation accusations surfaced, reported the Daily Mail.
When Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard, Josh seemed to be overlooked as a possible groomsman.
“We all thought it was odd that basically everyone of Josh’s family served in some position but he was left out. But no one made a big deal about it. Now it’s making more sense why they wouldn’t want him up there, standing at the altar next to them,” said an insider.
In addition, Jessa and Ben had a total of 20 attendants at their wedding, but no one from Josh’s family was invited to be a bridesmaid or groomsman.
