Anna Duggar’s life definitely hasn’t been easy since joining the 19 Kids and Counting clan. After all, not only does she have to deal with being in the media spotlight but, since Josh’s cheating allegations, she has also had to try to work out whether or not she should stay in her marriage. But even before that scandal she didn’t exactly have a typical existence, as these Duggar family secrets make plain. With everything from ostracizing siblings to a singularly unusual upbringing to consider, then, here are 19 things that make Anna’s life just a little bit odd…
19. She doesn’t believe in birth control
Like the majority of the Duggar clan, Anna doesn’t use birth control. And so while she may simply have married into the Duggar family, she appears to have now adopted their stance on contraception. Husband Josh has stated that “God has the control” over how many children they should have.
18. She and Josh apparently lied about paying off her taxes
None of us like paying taxes, but we all know it’s necessary. However, Josh and Anna were caught up in a scandal when it was discovered that they were in debt to the State of Arkansas to the tune of over $14,000. And instead of quietly paying the debt off, Anna’s husband stated that they had already handed over the money – which, according to a 2015 Radar Online report, was a lie.
