by at .

It's only been almost two years since Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth got married after a very brief courtship.

But the couple isn't wasting any time when it comes to reaching all the traditional marriage milestones.

Joy got pregnant on her honeymoon (which led to quite a few "shotgun wedding" rumors).

Next, she and Austin set about the business of building a new home.

(Though it looks like they may have gotten in over their heads on that one, as it currently appears that the Forsyths are still living in a trailer.)

And with less than two years of marriage under their belts, Joy and Austin have already weathered at least three minor scandals.

For one, there's that whole business about the two of them living in a trailer with a baby.

Obviously, there's no shame in Joy and Austin struggling financially, particularly considering how young they are.

But the situation raised a number of questions about Joy and Austin's standard of living.

Doesn't she come from a wealthy family?

Isn't he some sort of wunderkind in the lucrative world of flipping houses?

Anyway, the situation snowballed to the point that fans began speculating that Joy and Austin are headed for divorce.

When the couple didn't immediately address those rumors, it became widely assumed that they were in the midst a low-key separation.

Obviously, divorce is a major no-no in Duggar Land, and if Joy and Austin were to go there separate ways, a major scandal would ensue.

Which may be why Joy has decided to lay those rumors to rest.

“I love him MORE than I ever have!” Joy recently replied to a fan's question about her marriage.

A day later she doubled down, writing:

“I keep falling in love with him! Love you, Austin Martyn! #AustinandJoyForsyth #MadlyInLove.”

Just a theory, but it sounds to us like Joy and Austin hit a bit of a rough patch, and now they're overcompensating/making up for lost time,

It's fine. They're young. They're sure to have many ups and downs.

As for that third scandal, Joy recently caught flak for encouraging an anorexic fan to lose weight.

She was trying to help by responding to a comment on the above video about her own body transformation.

The situation didn't play out as expected, but Joy immediately issued an apology.

She's a Duggar; something tells us she'll be doing that a lot in the years to come.
