Josh Duggar, the oldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, stars of the TLC show “19 Kids and Counting,” has returned to social media two years after he was embroiled in two different scandals.
First it was revealed that, as a teenager, Josh had molested his sisters and a female friend. Then, months after this news emerged, it was also revealed that Josh had an account with Ashley Madison, an adultery website.
He later attended Reformers Unanimous for his sexual addiction, and, after completing the rehab program, was restored to his family.
Josh and his wife Anna reportedly received marriage counseling and were able to salvage their relationship. Anna is now pregnant with the couple’s fifth child, a baby boy.
Recently, the Duggar family shared several photos on Instagram from the birthday party of Josh and Anna’s son, Marcus.
On the Duggar Family Website, Josh and Anna wrote, "For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives together as a family. Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust. We've learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time."
Although the Duggar family seems to have forgiven Josh, many fans seem to be more skeptical that Josh has truly changed.
