Having gone through serious turmoil for the better part of a year, are Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar nearing their own breaking point?
According to the new issue of In Touch, the family therapist TELLS ALL. Notably, that Michelle Duggar is scared of son Josh Duggar.
Apparently, the mother of 19 is terrified that her first born child will return home from sex addiction rehab and wreak havoc once again.
One can somewhat understand, given Josh's track record and the fact that he torpedoed the family's reputation and reality TV empire.
After all, this troubled individual molested Jana Duggar, Jill Duggar, Jessa Duggar and very likely Jinger and Joy-Anna Duggar as well.
Not to mention the whole cheating on pregnant wife Anna Duggar with porn star strippers thing and the addiction to online porn thing.
For Michelle Duggar in particular, it's all too much to take.
Sources tell In Touch that a major point of contention is that eldest daughter Jana Duggar is still single due to trust issues caused by Josh.
That theory has been rumored before, and apparently it's caused a serious rift between a couple whose marriage had been rock solid.
Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar don't see eye to eye on the issue and as a result, their Arkansas compound is a “house of horrors.”
With Anna Duggar and her four kids living there while Josh toils away at Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Ill., it's worse by the day.
Anna Duggar blogged about visiting Josh a couple of times and shown no signs that she's leaving her husband and his famous family.
Ironically, it's Michelle Duggar that has reservations about Josh, and has threatened to file for divorce if Jim Bob doesn't disown him.
In her mind, Anna can handle Josh’s problems however she likes, but it's not on Jim Bob and Michelle to be responsible for him anymore.
Bottom line: Michelle wants Josh gone from the family compound and banished for good, and Jim Bob wants him back with open arms.
Stay tuned, Duggar Nation.
