“19 Kids and Counting” couple Josh and Anna Duggar’s marriage is on the road to recovery as they denied reports that they got divorced.
Josh and Anna have admitted that they are in a long journey of rebuilding trust in their relationship and they have been attending couples therapy to save their marriage.
In an official statement released on the Duggar website, the couple said they have been working with a professional marriage and family counselor after Josh came out of the rehab. Josh and Anna said the road to healing was not easy to take, but instead of focusing on the negativity, they are taking it one day at a time.
“It isn’t easy and some days are very difficult. It is a long road to rebuild trust and a truly healthy relationship… As the future unfolds, we are taking one day at a time and we are grateful for your continued prayers for both of us and our sweet children,” they said in the statement.
Josh and Anna also thanked their fans, family, and friend for staying with them through times.
People magazine previously cited a source saying that is unlikely that Anna will leave Josh. “Anna will not leave him. As with her in-laws, she is turning more to her faith than ever. She and Josh are probably praying around the clock right now, I would assume,” the source told People .
TLC canceled “19 Kids and Counting” a year ago after Josh admitted to molesting underage girls in his teen years, four of whom were his sisters. Examiner noted that the cancellation of the hit show has been a major financial blow to the family, who earned $25,000 to $45,000 per episode.
Josh also confessed to cheating on Anna with several women through the Ashley Madison site. “I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife,” he said at the time. He eventually entered a rehab facility. In April 2016, Josh completed his six-month rehab for sex and porn addictions.
According to Examiner, Josh has kept a low profile since moving back home to Arkansas and amid rumors that Anna is pregnant with their fifth baby.
