No “till death do us part” here! While the Duggar family is known for sticking in marriages literally through THICK & THIN (cough cough, Anna and Josh Duggar) it looks like one Duggar family member just couldn’t abide by the unofficial ‘No Duggar Divorce’ policy.

RadarOnline.com revealed that Anna’s older sister Rebekah McDonald, who also comes from a strict Christian family, secretly filed for divorce from her husband of more than ten years, back in 2015.

According to Texas’ Fort Bend County family court documents, obtained by Radar, Rebekah filed papers against her husband Joshua on May 22 of that year, citing “discord” or “conflict of personalities.”

As OK! readers’ know, Anna, who is currently expecting her and Josh’s fifth child, took a different approach and stuck by her husband’s side despite his uncovered child molestation scandal and his cheating and sex addiction confession.

In Rebekah’s divorce filing, the 34-year-old requested primary custody of the couple’s two children and asked that her ex be allotted weekend visitation. However, her husband fought for more time, which led the two to agree upon joint custody.

The divorce was finalized that August in a settlement. Rebekah won exclusive medical and education rights over the kids, and Joshua was ordered to pay $785 per month in support. The former couple revisited their custody agreement earlier this year and eventually agreed to a revised agreement in March.
