Still working on it. Josh and Anna Duggar are reportedly still in couples counseling years after their marriage was rocked by multiple scandals. According to Radar Online, the pair — who are expecting their fifth child any day now — are desperately trying to salvage their troubled relationship.
“They have continued to work through their issues in couples counseling,” a source told Radar. While the insider said that the reality TV duo seem to be “doing OK,” their marriage is secretly holding on by a thread.
As In Touch exclusively revealed in June 2015, Josh, 28, had molested five girls, including sisters Jill and Jessa, back in 2002, when he was 14 years old. Then, that following August, Josh’s name was uncovered in a widespread hack of Ashley Madison, a website dedicated to helping married people conduct affairs. Not long after Josh’s cheating and molestation scandals came to light, he checked into the Christian rehab center Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Illinois.
“I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife,” Josh said in a statement at the time. “I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.”
While Josh’s indiscretions have certainly had a negative affect on his marriage to Anna, 28, Radar’s source said that the former TLC stars “put on a front,” adding that if the parents-of-four — who share kids Michael, Marcus, Mackynzie, and Meredith — had any problems, “we wouldn’t know about it.”
