Anna Duggar is emotionally speaking out about the intense betrayal she felt when it was revealed her husband Josh had been having an affair behind her back. Now she’s sharing how she coped with the devastating news, and who she turned to in her darkest hours.
So sad! Anna Duggar, 27, is finally sharing her heartbreak over husband Josh Duggar‘s cheating and porn scandals, and she claims she never would have been able to get past the betrayal if it wasn’t for her devout faith. Yikes! Poor Anna. She’s now bravely opening up about how much news of her husband’s affair completely devastated her.
Anna Duggar is revealing the intense heartache she suffered after learning that Josh was cheating on her, “It is such a betrayal for a spouse to go through what we’re walking through,” Anna confessed, noting “It was hard to realize that it was such a public thing, and so, not only was it a betrayal against me, but it was also a betrayal for those who call themselves Christian.”
“Everyone was able to see us get married and to vow before God to be loyal to each other, and that loyalty was broken. And so, for my heart, it was just broken. Josh was my first love, my one and only,” the reality star shared while on the brink of tears in a teaser for the upcoming episode TLC’s Jill & Jessa: Counting On.

Brave Anna revealed that the only thing that got her through their marital crisis was her devout Christianity.”I knew that my only hope was to cling to my faith, because I knew if I went off of what I was feeling, I would turn a mess into a disaster,” she revealed. “In the stun and shock of everything, I was just praying, ‘God, help me to know how to respond to all of this.'”
“I didn’t know what to do. I knew we needed help, and I was just praying God would give the wisdom and the help that we needed to know how to take the next step.” By that point Josh was already in a faith-based rehab over revelations that he allegedly molested four of his sisters when they were younger. It also came to light that he had a pretty serious porn addiction. The news that he cheated on her with porn star Danica Dillon who he met via the cheating website Ashley Madison was just another heaping of bad news for his beleaguered wife, but she stayed with him despite all of that. We hope 2016 is a much brighter year for you Anna!
