Anna Duggar reportedly put on a brave face while she attended 19 Kids and Counting cousin Amy Duggar’s wedding to Dillon King on Sunday, sans husband Josh Duggar.
It was only a couple of weeks ago that Josh admitted to having an addiction to porn, when it was discovered he had not one, but two Ashley Madison accounts, following the hacking of the cheater’s website.
Josh Duggar also admitted to having cheated on Anna Duggar. Since his admission, a stripper and porn star named Danica Dillon has come forward, claiming she and Josh engaged in rough sex together.
Anna Duggar attended the nuptials in the company of her in-laws, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Earlier in the day, she attended church with them, too.

Josh Duggar is supposed to be in rehab for his sex addiction, but sources are conflicted as to whether he’s there or not.
Josh and Anna Duggar’s children accompanied Anna to Amy Duggar’s wedding this weekend. Daughter McKynzie was one of Amy’s flower girls. Members of the 19 Kids and Counting family helped Anna with the remainder of her children. Baby Meredith was born just a couple of weeks before Josh Duggar’s latest sex scandal made news.
While Anna Duggar reportedly did her best to remain positive during the nuptials, the words the pastor who married Amy and Dillon used surely hit home for the hurting young wife and mom. He talked told the bride and groom to be “open, honest and faithful” in marriage. He advised that they go “all in” both for each other and for Jesus, too. He told Amy and Dillon that marriage is about being “only with each other for the rest of your lives.”
“Anna definitely looked somber during the ceremony,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “She was watching and listening, and she just looked kind of sad.”

Anna Duggar didn’t attend the reception, but ducked out shortly after the wedding ceremony. She has yet to address the media regarding her husband’s most recent issues.
It’s likely she won’t.
Kudos to Anna Duggar for even showing her face at this large family event. It must have been both heart wrenching and somewhat humiliating for her to attend Amy Duggar’s wedding. Hopefully this is the start of her engaging with friends and family members–both of whom she desperately needs during this difficult time.
