Josh Duggar's Wife Anna Says He Has Redeemed Himself

It's been four years since Josh Duggar found himself in the middle of several public scandals.

The Duggar family has remained semi-private about the whole ordeal, but his wife, Anna, has recently revealed that he has been redeemed.

Back in 2015, Josh Duggar from TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" found himself front and center of various public scandals.

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends," he said in a Facebook statement.

In the same statement, Anna revealed that knew about Josh's actions, as he had told her when they began to court each other.


"I can imagine the shock many of you are going through reading this. I remember feeling that same shock. It was not at the point of engagement, or after we were married - it was two years before Josh asked me to marry him," she wrote.

Everything was beginning to quiet down, until Josh found himself in the middle of another scandal.

It's been a few years since the scandals have unfolded, and Anna and Josh seem to be back to their old routines.
