Anna Duggar talks openly about her marriage to alleged child molester and abuser, Josh Duggar.

Anna Duggar, who features on the (now cancelled) reality TV show 19 Kids and Counting, has spoken out about her experience since her husband Josh was admitted to rehab.

In a statement on the Duggar Family website, Anna describes 2015 as the “most difficult year of my life”.

“Many have asked how I am doing. So many have asked that it’s actually humbling and touching. 2015 was the most difficult year of my life.”

Josh Duggar was first admitted into a faith-based rehabilitation centre in Illinois last year after it was revealed he had a pornography addiction and had repeatedly cheated on his wife. His addiction was first made public when his account was found on the cheating website Ashley Madison.

In her statement, Anna said her trauma had strengthened her relationship with God and she also confirmed she had recently visited Josh in rehab.

“… my faith has been more precious to me than ever before. Just recently I visited Josh. It was an important step on a long difficult road. I want to thank all of you for your prayers and your messages of hope.”

Despite the deeply alarming revelations about Josh Duggar, including allegations that he had molested his younger sisters, Anna has continued to show support for her husband.

“I trust that God will continue to show His love and tenderness toward us and bring beauty from ashes — somehow — as only He can do. Please continue to pray for me, Josh and our children.”
