Duggars Speak Out on Life After Scandal – and Forgiving Josh
After six months that Josh Duggar entered a faith-based rehab center after the family scandals that took place, the Duggar children are speaking on their lives post-scandal. The family is working to move on from that low point in their lives and repair the relationship with the former reality star.
“I definitely have forgiven Josh. It is a process, though, that you have to work through in your heart. And trust is not quickly rebuilt. It is something that takes a while. We love him very much, though, and we are very hopeful for the future.” – Josh’s sister Jessa (Duggar) Seewald
“I have forgiven him and I feel that, but the trust is not there.” – sister Joy
In many other families, things like adultery are often the last straw that break the family’s back. Back in August, Josh, 28, admitted to having a pornography addiction and being unfaithful to his wife Anna.
“I love Josh and I want the best for him. There are a lot of people who have been hurt in this situation. I want to look for ways to help heal the situation for Josh and for Anna and their kids especially.” – Jessa’s husband Ben Seewald. ”
