Anna Duggar May Have Forgiven Josh but She Clearly Doesn't Trust Him

It's been a couple of months since Josh Duggar came home from rehab, and while his wife has stated that she's working on restoring her marriage, apparently Anna Duggar still doesn't trust her husband.


Who can blame her? According to a report from In Touch, Anna has put some strict rules in place in order to keep her errant husband on the straight and narrow. For example, Josh is allowed to have his own phone, but it's an old-school one -- no smartphone allowed.

A source close to the Duggar family revealed to the magazine, "It's not a smartphone. He isn't allowed to have one of those. He has a little phone with a tiny screen and he can't send or receive picture messages on it."

Smart move, Anna! The mom of four had her world turned upside down last August when Josh confessed to cheating on her after he was caught in the Ashley Madison scandal. The heartbreak revelation came just months after the family show, 19 Kids and Counting, was canceled following the news that Josh had molested four of his sisters and another underage girl as a young teen.

Anna stood with her man through the ordeal, confessed that she had known about the indiscretions, and said that she had forgiven him and moved past it a long time ago. Which had to make it even more devastating when she learned the truth about Josh's infidelity and porn addiction.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's eldest child spent nearly seven months in a faith-based rehab facility for his alleged sex addiction. While he was there, he wasn't allowed any screen time, but focused instead on Bible study, therapy, and physical labor.

It's possible that the no-smartphone rule came from the treatment center as a condition of Josh's release, but for whatever reason, Anna is smart to enforce it.

If Josh wants to restore her faith and trust in him again, it's going to take a lot more than just saying sorry.
