Inside Josh’s Married Life

Controversies Surrounding Siblings
Things were going well for the Duggar family with their TLC hit show 19 Kids and Counting running successfully. Josh and his siblings were living their lives, and the audience was also enjoying watching the Duggar’s family’s life on TV. But, all hell broke loose in 2015.
It came out that Josh molested five underaged girls as a minor. Shockingly, the victims also included his sisters Jill, Jessa, and Joy-Anna. After the scandalous affair, things kept unraveling, the TLC show got canceled, and Josh also confessed about cheating on his wife via watching pornography.
Since owning up to his misdoing, the reality star disappeared from the limelight and got admitted to a faith-based correction facility to better himself. Although rumors were rife that he and his wife Anna would head towards divorce, the couple held on and went to couple’s therapy to save their marriage.
Even his victimized sisters spoke out about the controversy. They had sentiments that although they had forgiven their brother for violating them, the trust was lost, but they were positive about the future that it will rebuild. But no matter what, they loved their brother dearly.
In 2018, Josh made his reappearance via a family photo then eventually started appearing in family events.
Till today the public is divided on whether to forgive him or term him as a child molester forever, but his family seems to have forgiven him. After his appearances at family events and acceptance from his wife, he seems to be a changed man now.
Josh has landed into another trouble related to a real estate property. In May 2019, he got named in the suit for allegedly purchasing a land already owned by another individual.
However, the reality star begged to be removed from the lawsuit as it was his company, ALB Investments, LLC who had bought the disputed land in 2016.
