Back in May of 2015, the world learned that Josh Duggar had molested five young girls, four of whom were his sisters.

Shortly thereafter, it was revealed that Josh had used an Ashley Madison account in his efforts to cheat on his wife.

Not long after that news went public, Josh checked into rehab to be treated for sex addiction.

Through it all, Anna Duggar stuck by his side. 

Despite frequent pleas from fans to leave her philandering husband, Anna has given Josh second, third and fourth chances, and she’s even assisted his family’s brand by addressing her troubled marriage on Counting On:

Anna Duggar FINALLY Opens Up About Josh's Cheating: It Was Like a Bad Dream!

Given the patriarchal nature of the society in which she was raised, it’s not surprising that Anna takes her marital cues from the book of Tammy Wynette.

However, a recent photo of the troubled 28-year-old has some fans more worried about Anna than ever.

And many are hoping that she’ll finally part ways with Josh and his family:

Anna, Jill and Jinger Duggar

The above image was posted to the Duggar clan’s official Facebook page over the weekend.

At first glance, it appears to be nothing more than a pic of Anna shopping with her sisters-in-law, Jill and Jinger.

Fans who zoomed in on the photo, however, noticed that Anna appears to have recently sustained some sort of injury.

As you can see, Anna appears to have a sore on her lip, and some fans believe she has a bruise near her eye.

For obvious reasons, the pic has prompted a number of concerned comments from fans.

Perhaps not surprisingly, those comments have been outnumbered by Duggar defenders who insist that nothing is amiss.

"I don’t see black eye cold sore or swollen lips and I zoomed in on the pictures I think they all look great ur not supposed to be judging what they look like," wrote one follower.

"I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that, if something bad had happened to Anna (I think it’s shadow on the eye), they wouldn’t be taking her picture and posting it on social media," commented another.

Other fans took notice of the photo for a different reason altogether, noting that the pose might be a result of Jill Duggar hiding a baby bump.

Last month, Jessa Duggar announced that she’s pregnant with her second child, and as she and Jill have often talked about coordinating their pregnancies, fans have been watching Jill’s social media accounts for hints that she’s expecting.

That question will likely be answered one way or another in the near future.

However, it’s unlikely that the the Duggars will ever address the allegations of abuse against Josh.
