Anna Duggar: I Hope Jana Stays Single Forever!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

If you're a fan of her in-laws' media empire, then you're probably familiar with Anna Duggar as the long-suffering wife of former reality star and known sexual predator Josh Duggar.

While some have accused Anna of enabling her husband's repugnant misconduct, for the most part, she's as beloved as Josh is hated.

Anna is primarily viewed by fans as one of Josh's many victims.

She's mostly remained silent on her decision to stay with Josh despite his infidelity and numerous sex crimes, but her defenders insist that Anna is left with little choice, as divorce is strictly forbidden in the fundamentalist community in which she lives. 

It's been said that Anna's family is even stricter than the Duggars with regard to their fringe evangelical beliefs, and many believe that's another reason the mother of five has stood by her husband.

The Duggars appear to have been Anna's main source of support throughout the scandals of the past several years.

And there's one Duggar daughter in particular with whom Anna seems to have formed a special bond.

Anna and Jana Duggar are said to be extremely close, and insiders have reported that recent difficulties have only made their friendship even stronger.

Over the past week, several fans in online forums have noted that it's been exactly one year since Anna made a remark about Jana that garnered a mixed reaction at the time.

Jana is still single at 27, a fact that's considered highly unusual in a family in which girls are taught that procreation is their sole reason for being, and most young women become mothers in their early twenties.

As a result of not having any children of her own, Jana has served as an endless source of support to her family, and Anna even went so far as to state that she's happy her eldest sister-in-law is unattached.

“Jana has been such an encouragement and such a rock this past year of my life. She is such a treasure,” Anna remarked on Counting On, adding:

“Selfishly, for right now, I’m so thankful that I’ve had her as just a shoulder to cry on. Someone to just laugh with, cry with, pray with. She’s such a treasure.”

Yes, Anna indicated that she's "selfishly" happy that that particular "treasure" is single, and despite several Jana courtship rumors, that's still the case one year later.

Many fans have taken to social media to wonder aloud if Anna still feels that way, but thus far, there's been no response from Josh's beleaguered wife.
