Word is now getting out about “Duggarville:” what life is really like for the Duggars, beyond what TLC’s cameras captured on ’19 Kids and Counting.’ Anna Duggar reportedly believes it’s “ungodly” for her to get angry, which suggests Josh Duggar hasn’t even had to contend with an angry wife after admitting he had an Ashley Madison account and cheated on her.
An insider said this about Anna, who has not spoken publicly since Josh’s latest sex scandal broke:
She doesn’t get mad. You are not allowed to get mad. It’s not godly for a woman.
“Ever since she met [the Duggars] she has acted more like Michelle. She talks like her, really soft. She, like, whispers.”
I have to say, I know plenty of Christian women who have no problems getting angry, even with their spouses. Anger is an emotion like any other that we all experience. It’s not “good” or “bad.” What we say or do while angry might cause problems, but that’s about learning how to handle your anger appropriately.
The source also said that Anna has no support system outside of the Duggars.
It’s scary. I don’t know who is talking to Anna or how she is dealing with this. Aside from Duggarville … no one can get to her.”
Anna’s parents, Mike and Suzette Keller, reportedly are advising her to turn to her faith.
They’re telling her Jesus forgives, Satan is trying to attack your marriage, that kind of stuff.”
The source added:
I looked at her and said, ‘You have not absorbed everything yet. You are going to be pissed off, and you are going to be angry. You are going to want nothing to do with him. You may not be feeling these emotions yet.’ But at one point you will.’ “
I’m guessing she already is. The question is, does Anna feel safe expressing it? I feel so badly for her. For her sake, I hope Josh truly does feel sorry and is trying to be a better husband. That really comes down to: does he feel sorry for all he’s done or sorry that’s he’s been caught and publicly humiliated?
