Anna Duggar can't seem to catch a break. Husband Josh Duggar, who is still in a rehab facility for his "sexual sins," couldn't get the lawsuit filed against him by porn star Danica Dillon dropped. It was on Wednesday that a judge denied Josh Duggar's request.

"We decline to grant Duggar's motion to dismiss at this early stage of litigation where Stamm-Northup alleges Duggar treated her roughly, caused physical injuries, and she felt 'as if she was being raped,'" Pennsylvania judge, J. Kearney, announced.

Danica Dillon's real name is Ashley Stamm-Northup.

This means Josh Duggar must now respond to Dillon's lawsuit by January 20, adding fuel to the fire that Anna Duggar is living with, and can't seem to put out.

Anna Duggar is still in serious pain over Josh's admission of cheating on her, as well as his addiction to pornography. She appeared on Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald's TLC three-part special, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, and explained how that pain is incredibly hard to deal with.

Josh and Anna Duggar have four children--all of whom Anna has been raising as a single mom since Josh entered the faith based rehab facility in August. Every time something--like this lawsuit--comes up, it reminds Anna of all Josh has done to destroy their marriage.

Despite her pain, however, Anna Duggar is determined to stay with Josh Duggar. Members of her family tried to convince her to file for divorce this summer, but she wouldn't. Many people think she is strongly influenced by her in-laws, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who don't believe divorce is even an option.

Anna Duggar has a long road to travel in order to see her marriage repaired. Now it looks as though that road will have a serious bump in it--Danica Dillon's lawsuit against Josh Duggar.

"He threw me on the bed and, in all honesty, though it was consensual it more or less felt like I was being raped," Dillon claims in the suit. "I never said no, I am going to have to reiterate that, I never told him no. But I did push him back and push him off and say that's too rough that's too rough."

If you were Anna Duggar, could you contend with this kind of betrayal?
