Josh and Anna Duggar: Proof That Their Marriage Is a Sham?
Last week, Josh and Anna Duggar celebrated an anniversary.
The usually private couple to Instagram to share their special occasion with fans:
“Josh and I celebrated our 10-year engagement anniversary,” Anna captioned the pic above.
“The past 10 years have been a wonderful adventure.”
Yes, these two were so eager to celebrate a decade together that they jumped the gun and marked the occasion of their engagement, not their wedding.
Clearly, they’re still head over heels for one another, right.
Well, not so fast, says body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass.
Dr. Glass says Anna’s stance and facial expression convey that she’s uncomfortable being so close to Josh and is forcing herself to look happy for the camera’s benefit.
“She has a tight smile,” Dr. Glass says.
“Her eyes are not smiling. She’s gritting her teeth. It’s very contrived.”
Dr. Glass even goes so far as to claim that one can reach a definitive conclusion regarding Anna’s feelings toward Josh based on the photo:
“Anyone with eyes can see there’s no love there,” she says.
Glass also analyzed the video below, in which several members of the Duggar clan congratulate Jinger Duggar on her pregnancy:
Once again, Dr. Glass, says, Anna’s posture and movements are evidence that she’s uncomfortable being so close to her husband.
“It’s rehearsed,” she says.
“This is what she’s told to do. He has his hands on her to guide her to do it right.”
“He has both hands on her shoulders, like a control thing.”
According to Dr. Glass, the video essentially serves as evidence that Josh and Anna’s wedding is a sham:
“She’s uncomfortable. She’s rocking back and forth. It’s so phony and contrived.”
As longtime followers of the Duggar clan know, Anna has good reason to feel uncomfortable.
Many fans expected Anna to leave her husband after the Josh Duggar sex scandals went public back in 2015.
She stood by her husband’s sign amidst claims of pedophilia and incestuous behavior, but she was soon punished for her loyalty when it was revealed that Josh had used the Ashley Madison website in order to find a partner with which to cheat on Anna.
Divorce is strictly forbidden in the Duggars’ world, which likely explains why Anna has chosen not to end her marriage.
But that doesn’t mean she’s happy about it.
