Joy-Anna Duggar & Austin Forsyth: Lying About Courtship? Forced to Marry By Both Overbearing Fathers??

by at .  Updated at .

It's been over two years since Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth married in the sort of lavish, massively-attended ceremony for which their family has become known.

And it seems as though the young couple has been enjoying a life of quiet domestic bliss ever since.

Though Joy recently suffered a miscarriage, insiders say Austin has been a tremendous source of support.

The 25-year-old is making a way for himself in one of the few career fields Jim Bob approves of (real estate).

But there's reason to believe that when they first met, Joy and Austin were not so thrilled with the idea of exchanging vows.

In fact, many fans believe that Joy was forced to marry Austin by heir overbearing fathers.

Here's everything we know about the situation - and Austin's surprisingly controversial father - so far:
