Jana Duggar may have long felt the repercussions of Josh Duggar's sexual molestation--at least according to one source.

Long referred to as 'Cinderella Duggar' by her fans because of the responsibility she assumes for her younger siblings, the 19 Kids and Counting star is 25 and unmarried. She lives at home with parents Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, because they have raised their children to believe that's where they belong until they marry.

Now that word has hit the media of Josh Duggar's sexual molestation scandal, some of those same fans fear Jana Duggar may have been one of Josh's victims, and if that's the case it might explain why she hasn't courted (children in the Duggar family don't date per Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar--they court) or even considered getting married.

Many of those fans took to Twitter to express their concern for Jana Duggar.

While some of these fans have different ideas about the impact Josh Duggar's actions may have had on Jana Duggar, they all believe she has paid the price in one way or another.

Do you think Josh Duggar is responsible for Jana Duggar never courting or considering marriage? Do you think she has stayed at home to protect her younger sisters from their brother?
