Anna Duggar has had a tumultuous year. The mother of four and wife of reality star Josh Duggar has been under media scrutiny since earlier this spring when it was revealed that Josh had molested four of his sisters, as a teenager. Just last week her world was rocked again when the Ashley Madison hack divulged that her husband was a paying customer. Just this week, one of his mistresses came forward and released intimate details of their trysts. Josh has since entered a “long-term” treatment facility, although no one knows what he’s being treated for – we guess sex addiction? Well, through all of this, Anna has remained supportive, yet quiet, so we wanted to discover more about her. These are nine things you need to know about Anna Duggar, her past, her family and her beliefs.
