Stars of the reality TV series Duck Dynasty have shared their opinion on the Josh Duggar scandal.
From one reality television couple to another, Duck Dynasty’s Jase and Missy Robertson commented on the recent controversy surrounding Anna and Josh Duggar, former stars on the canceled TV series 19 Kids and Counting.
Over the summer, it was revealed that Josh Duggar had molested five girls as a teenager. A couple months later, it came to light that he had an account on the adultery website Ashley Madison and was unfaithful to his wife.
Many have said that Anna Duggar should leave her husband and that she has sufficient moral high ground to do so.
According to The Christian Post, Missy and Jase Robertson agree that Anna had sufficient grounds to leave her husband if she chose to.
Missy stated, "I think forgiving and forgetting are two different things. As far as the relationship, that's gotta be her decision whether or not she wants to go on without him. She certainly has that right, because he interrupted their marriage with those affairs, but forgiveness is not really a choice, you know, if you want forgiveness from God."
While Josh is attending a rehab center for his sexual addiction issues, Anna has been busy homeschooling and caring for the couple’s four children.
Missy added that whatever Josh and Anna decide to do, that is their choice.
"But that's something that, at the end of the day, when the cameras go away, that's their life. They're going to have to deal with it themselves and get past it and try to savour some of the experiences they had and memories, and also make a new life for themselves — whether it's together or apart."
