Anna Duggar has stood by her husband Josh throughout his confession to molesting five young women, two of which were his sisters, as well as the cancellation of 19 Kids And Counting, losing his job and moving back to Arkansas. But now that he admitted to cheating on his wife of 7 years on Ashley Madison and has entered rehab, will she stay or will she leave?
According to a report from People, Anna is turning to her faith and is even taking some of the blame herself, though she will likely not divorce Josh.
“No way is she leaving him" a source told People, adding that Anna may “absorb some of the blame."
"Maybe not publicly, ever, but privately, there will be some suggestion of whether or not she should have been more aware of the pressures Josh was under, of the issues he was facing, and how she could have better counseled him or helped him," the source said.
"She is fully and permanently committed to her marriage and her children. And she'll have the support of Jim Bob and Michelle and everyone else in their circle in terms of staying with him and making this work," continues the source. "Divorce is not even something that will be discussed."
Back in June, days after the child sexual abuse scandal came to light, a source told Star magazine that Anna was humiliated, “completely and utterly devastated” and felt “trapped.”
“She feels trapped. If she leaves Josh to stay with her parents for a while, people will say she’s abandoned him,” the insider said. “She is stuck in the Duggar PR machine and feels completely alone. She’s utterly helpless in this horrible situation."

Part of moving on for Anna, according to the report, has been moving back to Florida with her family. While Josh stays at Reformers Unanimous in Illinois, Anna and their four young children have moved in with her parents in Florida.
