Anna Duggar seems to be the target of Anna’s mother-in-law Michelle Duggar’s recent blog offering sex advice for husbands and wives.
Rumors are swirling that Anna wants to divorce her sex-addicted husband, so many are speculating that Michelle is trying to use some rather passive-aggressive tactics to change Anna Duggar’s mind.
According to Radar Online, Michelle Duggar recently shared a blogpost titled Michelle Duggar’s Advice for Newlyweds. In the post, she shares some of her favorite marriage tips, including a tip that it’s important to have sex with your husband whenever he demands it, no matter how tired or terrible you feel.
“Anyone can iron Jim Bob’s shirt, anybody can make lunch for him. He can get his lunch somewhere else,” Michelle’s friend told her. “But you are the only one who can meet that special need that he has in his life for intimacy.”

Michelle said in her blog that simply having sex isn’t enough — you always have to act like you’re happy about it, no matter the circumstances.
“And so 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.’”

Michelle Duggar has previously posted this blog and Radar Online suggests that the timing of this blog re-post is suspect and is perhaps Michelle’s way of letting Anna Dugger know that she thinks that Anna failed Josh by not meeting his needs.
According to People, there’s a large contingency of family members and other followers of their patriarchal brand of Christianity that may feel that Anna Duggar is to blame for Josh’s cheating.

Ronnie Floyd, a pastor at an Arkansas church that the Duggars occasionally attend, recently told his congregation that keeping a partner sexually satisfied is extremely important because the failure to do so could open a marriage “up to the attack of the enemy.”
“And that enemy is going to take your spouse away from you … Both men and woman have their sexual needs met by someone, somewhere, somehow.”
In the wake of Josh’s philandering, Anna Duggar is becoming so serious about divorce that Josh is reportedly “flipping out” and begging her to stay.
What do you think? Is Michelle Duggar targeting her daughter-in-law, Anna Duggar? And if so, is she right to do so?
