Allegations of divorce between couple Josh and Anna Duggar has not stopped since the news of Josh Duggar's infidelity using the adultery website, Ashley Madison.

Now that news came out about their 5-bedroom house in Arkansas being sold to a family friend, many are again speculating of the marriage being concluded.

In Touch Weekly, on their October 14, 2015, edition, showed a document indicating that the house was sold to Travis Story, a lawyer and a friend to Duggar's, under the Story Law Firm, PLLC. It further shows that this document was signed on August 24, 2015, five days after the revelation of Josh Duggar's infidelity, according to In Touch Weekly report. Anna Duggar then stayed with her mom, Suzette Keller, in Florida amidst the controversy and while Josh is in rehab, IB Times reported. After such news, Anna seemed to be taking the time to herself without the stress of the limelight and has not showed until recently.

A recent report from Inquisitr.com showed Anna with her in-laws during the farewell party for Jill and Derick Dillard. It seems then that time has been a friend to Anna as she looked more rested and happy in these new photos that were posted in the Dillard Family Blog. Although there is still no news of Anna's decision on her and Josh's marital issue, she seems to be taking everything well and is staying strong for her four children, especially that she is taking care of an infant.

According to a report published in Christian Today, Josh begged Anna to stay with him in the middle of all the controversies that he has got himself in. This is amidst reports from Hollywood Life that Anna is considering divorce after the knowledge of Josh' infidelity with a porn star and stripper he met using the Ashley Madison website. Anna has not made or declared any decisions yet, however, it seems that she is taking everything in with extraordinary strength, as can be seen in the photos posted in the Dillard Family Blog. Although photos do not show everything, it is good to see Anna smiling in the middle of the circumstances.

It seems that the Bible verse that says "all things we do in darkness will be exposed in the light" has become true in the life of Josh Duggar. Early summer of this year, it can be remembered that Josh was involved in a sexual molestation scandal involving five teenage girls, some of them being his sisters. This story broke after a report from In Touch Weekly was published with the alleged police reports acquired by the online magazine. Josh then released an apology statement following the report and resigned from his job in the Family Research Council. Just a few months following the scandal, another report came out that shook the family once again. During the hacking crisis of AshleyMadison.com, a website that promotes infidelity, information of some 32 million site users were dumped in the web, as reported in Wired.com. Josh Duggar's name and address were included in that information that then exposed his infidelity towards his wife, Gawker.com reported. Later in August, In Touch Weekly released an article of an interview with a porn star, Danica Dillon, who shared about her affair with Josh, which she described as "violent". This has been a trying time for the family and according to Amy Duggar, Josh Duggar's cousin, in her interview with IB Times "There is a reason God gives you family. It's for moments like this."

Josh is now in a Christian rehabilitation center, trying to get a grip on his life again through Bible reading, praying and volunteer work. It will be a great victory for the Christian community to see this family stand up again after this storm and give glory to God for their many chances in life. Let us continue to pray for the Christian community.
