Marriage is hard work -- make no mistake about it. Those fairy tale relationships that end up in a love that supposedly lasts a lifetime, not to mention living happily ever after? They remain as just that - fairy tales. Ask any blissfully married couple and they will tell you that plenty of hard work is involved in order to maintain that level of chemistry between the two of them, not to mention making sure that love remains a verb as much as it is a noun in their vocabulary. Having said that, there are many external factors that can make a marriage get all stressed out, from affairs to work. Anna and Josh Duggar’s marriage has been said to be rocky for quite some time now, and it looks like the end of this eight-year-old union is about to come to an end.
Word has it that Anna Duggar is on the verge of filing papers for a divorce, and this would most probably be one of the most challenging pieces of news that the Duggar family, who has been living under the spotlight for quite some time already, would have to go through. Of course, one question that would keep on popping up in the minds of those observing and watching Anna and Josh Duggar’s relationship would no doubt wonder just how much of a role that Josh’s past marital indiscretions have played a role in adding more strain.
In Touch has a new report that cites a source, stating that Anna is seriously mulling over the possibility of calling it quits after listening to advice from friends who no doubt would think that Anna is better off being a single mother. One can never underestimate the influence of friends and those whom we hold close and dear to us.
According to the insider source, Anna will “see a lawyer in the next few weeks to have divorce papers drawn up so she can rid herself of Josh." Not only that, the very same source also leaked out that Anna "agrees and feels angry that Josh has treated her so appallingly for so long."
The Duggar family would no doubt be extremely concerned on their son’s wedding troubles, and obviously the couple’s four children would have to bear the brunt of the divorce while the world looks on. No child ever emerges from a divorce unscathed, although you can say that a child living under the same roof with two parents who simply cannot see eye-to-eye on anything and everything is not exactly the best proposition, either.
There is also the possibility that a divorce would mean it is open season on any other possible past scandals that could be brought up by Anna, and that would bring the Duggar family additional stress as they handle such an "event".
The latest rumors have it that Anna Duggar is currently pregnant with the fifth child, although nothing concrete has been confirmed just yet. What do you think of the situation? Is there always hope for a marriage no matter how far down the rabbit hole it has gone, and no feeling is left? Surely prayers will always help in such a situation. Biblically, there is license for Anna to call it quits, so we would see what her actions would be in the immediate future.
