Anna said that she wants to be an “extension of God’s love to Joshua.” With tears in her eyes, Anna shared that she wants to love Joshua and forgive him. Anna is waiting on him and wants their marriage to be restored. It is very obvious that Anna Duggar doesn’t have plans to leave Josh Duggar even though he cheated on her.
Now Anna Duggar admits that she wants everyone in their family to turn their hearts to God and that they will all come out of this stronger. It has been a very hard time for the Duggar family, but it does sound like Josh will still have a wife and four children to come home to when he is ready to leave rehab and get on with his life.
As Christian Today shared, Anna Duggar feels like Josh actually betrayed Christians and not just her. This couple was looked at as an amazing couple, but it turns out there were some things going on that even Anna didn’t know about and Josh had been unfaithful to her. Here is part of what Anna had to say on the show.
“It was definitely a hard thing. I think it is such a betrayal for a spouse to go through what we’re walking through… It was hard to realize that it was such a public thing, and so, not only was it a betrayal against me, but it was also a betrayal for those who call themselves Christian.”
Anna Duggar then went on to share more about her thoughts about what Josh Duggar did to her by cheating on her with women that he met on the website Ashley Madison.
“So, from my heart, it was just like, how could this happen in our marriage? Josh was my first love, my one and only, but I knew that my only hope was to cling to my faith, because I knew if I went off of what I was feeling, I would turn a mess into a disaster. In the stun and shock of everything, I was just praying to God to help me respond to this.”
