Anna Duggar was pregnant with her fourth child when hubby Josh Duggar cheated on her. Now it sounds like a blog post written by her mother-in-law Michelle Duggar insinuates that Anna might be to blame for Josh looking for sex elsewhere.

It was on the Duggar Family website that Michelle Duggar shared some words of wisdom about sex and marriage. A friend passed the advice on to her when she was about to marry Jim Bob Duggar.

"'So don't forget that, that he needs you,'" the advice reads. "'So when you are exhausted at the end of the day, maybe from dealing with little ones, and you fall into bed so exhausted at night, don’t forget about him because you and he are the only ones who can have that time together. No one else in the world can meet that need.'"

Michelle Duggar then adds her own words--and this is where it sounds like she might be blaming Anna Duggar for Josh's indiscretions.

The 19 Kids and Counting matriarch says to "be available, and not just available, but be joyfully available for him. Smile and be willing to say, 'Yes, sweetie I am here for you,' no matter what, even though you may be exhausted and big pregnant and you may not feel like he feels. 'I'm still here for you and I’m going to meet that need because I know it’s a need for you.'"

Anna Duggar was "big and pregnant" when Josh Duggar cheated on her with two porn stars and who knows how many other women. Did he do so because Anna Duggar didn't meet his sexual needs?

This kind of advice is so antiquated it isn't even remotely valid.

Anna Duggar packed up her kids and traveled to Florida last month where they are staying with her parents. Her siblings want her to divorce Josh Duggar.

If Josh comes from a family with these beliefs, Anna Duggar would likely be better off without him.

What's your take on Michelle Duggar's advice? Do you think she's blaming Anna for Josh Duggar's infidelity?
