Duggar Scandal: Will Anna Ever Leave Josh After Cheating, Porn Admissions?

As the fallout continues from Josh Duggar's stunning admission on Thursday that he "became unfaithful" to his wife, Anna Duggar, after news broke that he reportedly had two Ashley Madison accounts, Anna has tellingly remained silent.

This marks a departure from how the couple dealt with Josh's previous scandal in May -- when he admitted to molesting five young girls (four of whom were his younger sisters) as a teenager -- when Anna quickly sent out a statement showing her support for him. "[I know] who Josh really is -- someone who had gone down a wrong path and had humbled himself before God and those whom he had offended," Anna previously said. "Someone who had received the help needed to change the direction of his life and do what is right."

But despite Josh's latest scandal -- which originally included his admission that he also became addicted to watching pornography on the Internet, before he edited it out less than an hour later -- Anna is reportedly not likely to leave him anytime soon.

Or ever.

"Anna will not leave him," a source tells People. "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."

According to another source, Anna is even likely to "absorb some of the blame" on herself. "Maybe not publicly, ever, but privately, there will be some suggestion of whether or not she should have been more aware of the pressures Josh was under, of the issues he was facing, and how she could have better counseled him or helped him," says the source. "She is fully and permanently committed to her marriage and her children. And she'll have the support of Jim Bob and Michelle and everyone else in their circle in terms of staying with him and making this work. Divorce is not even something that will be discussed."

Josh and Anna have been married since September 2008. They have four children together: Mackynzie, 5, Michael, 4, Marcus, 2, and Meredith, who was born just last month.

As for Josh's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, the 19 Kids and Counting stars said that their "hearts were broken" on Thursday, upon hearing Josh's admission. "As we continue to place our trust in God we ask for your prayers for Josh, Anna, our grandchildren and our entire family," the couple said in a statement.

Josh's more famous sisters, Jill and Jessa, have remained silent so far on Josh's latest scandal, though they too defended him after his molestation scandal -- even when it was confirmed that they were both among his victims. "Josh was a boy, a young boy in puberty and a little too curious about girls," Jessa stressed in an interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly in June. "And that got him into some trouble. And he made some bad choices, but, really, the extent of it was mild -- inappropriate touching on fully clothed victims, most of it while [the] girls were sleeping."
