Anna Duggar Divorcing Josh Duggar and Assorted Duggar Media Coverage

Anna Duggar Divorcing Josh Duggar and Assorted Duggar Media Coverage February 3, 2017

TabloidNewsNext week we’ll return to our review of Lori Alexander’s book ‘The Power of the Transformed Wife’ I’ve been out of the country with spotty internet and I flew back in yesterday to see a pile of tabloid stories on the magazines at the airport involving the Duggar family.

In Touch is claiming that Anna Duggar is on the verge of divorcing spouse Josh. It seems that the man whose photographs Josh used on both the Ashley Madison and OkCupid, Matthew McCarty, is suing Josh. The case is going to court on February 27. According to the usual bunch of ‘unnamed Duggar insiders’ Anna has spoken to a divorce attorney and is planning on filing for divorce soon because the lawsuit is the final straw in several years of humiliation. In Touch is speculating that she will land a very large financial settlement. Only time will tell how true this is. I kind of hope it is because the picture the source paints of the relationship between Anna and Josh sounds miserable for everyone involved, including the children.

People magazine – very typically the positive publicity Duggar machine – has a Duggar daughter puff piece covering four full pages. Nothing surprising in anything stated. But two of the women are showing bare knees in their photos! There are a few new tidbits.

Jill Duggar Dillard is claiming that she and Derick are planning to return to El Salvador very soon to continue their mission and will fly back for the birth of their new baby. Guess they had to mention this to justify the fact that they’ve still been fund raising for all the months they’ve been home.

Jinger Duggar Vuolo has been unshackled from daddy Jim Bob Duggar and allowed to move to Laredo, Texas with new husband Jeremy. Handed off from one keeper to the next.

Jessa Duggar Seewald is apparently past her due date and has not picked a baby name.

Jana Duggar is still claiming to love to fix up things like houses and cars.

But the saddest update of all was on the Duggar daughter in courtship – Joy-Anna Duggar. She said this “I’m not sure when the next step will come. You will have to ask Austin what he’s thinking–and my dad!” A sad indicator that yet again every aspect of a woman’s life in Quiverfull is entirely controlled by the men in her life.

There, now you don’t have to waste your money or your time reading the articles.

One of the Duggar groups on Facebook says that Jim Bob sold one of the two small planes they own and has purchased a ten seater aircraft. Oh lawd how the money keeps rolling on in.

    If she’s really divorcing, I hope for the best with her.

  • Anonyme

    I don’t think Anna would divorce Josh, it’s too ingrained in her that (in their toxic culture) a woman never “leaves” her husband for anything. Oh, and that it’s probably her fault. Also, Michelle would probably murder her.

  • SAO

    Most women in the CPM have a lot of kids and no job skills and very few marital assets to split and a husband with a low income. She’ll have to work, can’t afford daycare and can’t count on alimony. The difference with Anna is that there are marital assets and any income Josh probably comes from an organization that will cooperate with a court order. In short, she may come out of a divorce with a significant improvement on her life and that of her kids, which is not as likely for the typical wife.

    In the immortal words of Cyndi Lauper, money changes everything.

  • Astrin Ymris

    I’m relieved that Jinger at least is out from under the family roof. Jeremy alone is unlikely to be as toxic as Jeremy + Jim Bob + Michelle + Josh.

  • Bettie Bedford

    How on earth does Josh have any asserts? Does he even have a job?

  • AFo

    Josh used to work for the Family Research Council, and I believe at some point he had a house and possibly other property in his name; however, I remember reading somewhere that after the woman he met through Ashley Madison announced she was going to sue him, Jim Bob transferred all of Josh’s assets into his name so that she couldn’t get anything from him. They’d probably do the same to Anna.

  • SAO

    Josh and Anna were adults while on the “Counting” show. She should have a decent claim on assets held by the Duggars. They might have done their best to financially isolate her, but will that hold up in court, if she has a decent lawyer?

    I don’t know, I can only speculate, but I’d say there should be a decent chunk of money that Anna should have a legitimate claim on.

  • I buy In Touch any time they have negative Duggar news on the cover. Voting with my wallet.

  • Perhaps she wants to grab a piece of the wealth before it gets hacked up by lawsuits. Her kids deserve that.
