Amy Duggar is reportedly dealing with the heartbreaking split of her parents, Terry Jordan and Deanna Duggar, who filed for divorce just before Christmas.

Terry Jordan is Amy's stepfather, but has been with Deanna for much of Amy's life. Deanna allegedly filed for a restraining order several years ago with claims that Terry threatened to kill her, but according to OK! Magazine, Terry filed the divorce paperwork, citing "intolerable treatment".
Amy, who is the aspiring country singer-cousin to the Duggar kids, took to Twitter to post some thoughts about the split via inspirational quotes but hasn't said much about the rift in her family. Amy, who only recently married herself, hasn't pointed fingers at who is to blame, but did share a quote that reads, "No one falls out of love by chance, it is by choice."

Amy Duggar--who is now Amy King--says that she feels she's always been the "mediator" between her parents to try and keep their relationship stable, rather than just being a kid.

"They've had a roller-coaster relationship for as long I can remember. I've always been the mediator between them, instead of just being their daughter I was also the counselor," Amy said. "I've learned it's not my place to try and 'fix' their relationship anymore. They are grown adults and I am, too. My main focus is to be a good wife, a help- mate, and Dillon and I work everyday to keep our marriage strong and healthy. Love isn't a feeling, it's a choice."
