Former 19 Kids & Counting stars Josh and Anna Duggar celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary late last month after getting past his molestation and cheating scandals. But, even though Anna has claimed that their ten years together have been a “wonderful adventure,” a body language expert says that Anna is unhappy.
Based on all of the pictures the mom of five has posted on social media, Dr. Lillian Glass has concluded that Anna is not happy in her marriage. This past summer, Anna posted a pic of her and Josh to celebrate their ten-year engagement anniversary, and Dr. Glass says that Anna’s smile isn’t genuine.
“She has a tight smile. Her eyes are not smiling. She’s gritting her teeth. It’s very contrived,” said Dr. Glass.

And, in the video that Josh and Anna made to congratulate Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson on their wedding day in June, Dr. Glass says Anna appears phony. She says it is all for show because she is looking at Josh but leaning away. “Anyone with eyes can see there is no love there,” added the body language expert.
As Dr. Glass looked at more photos and videos of the couple, she became even more convinced that Josh and Anna were deceiving fans. In the video where Josh and Anna congratulated Jeremy Vuolo and Jinger Duggar on their pregnancy, Dr. Glass says Anna’s appearance looked rehearsed. She added that Anna is doing what she is told to do, and Josh has his hands on her to guide her to “do it right.”
Dr. Glass says that Josh putting his hands on Anna’s shoulders is an attempt to control her, meanwhile, she is uncomfortable and rocking back and forth.
Back in 2015, news broke that Josh had molested five young girls when he was a teenager, including four of his sisters. Then, just a few weeks later, he was busted on the adultery website Ashley Madison. Not long after the scandals, he entered Christian rehab for sex addiction, and when he left treatment in March 2016, the couple started marriage counseling.
Josh Duggar’s family ended up losing their reality show because of the scandal, but his siblings returned later with the spin-off Counting On.
Could Josh and Anna be having marital issues thanks to his cheating and sexual crimes? It is likely we will never know. In Duggar world, divorce is not an option. So, despite the problems, Anna Duggar has stuck by her husband’s side, and she even gave birth to another baby.
New episodes of Counting On should return to TLC in 2019.
