Josh Duggar is a real person with feelings, emotions, thoughts, actions, knowledge, experiences and a strong family background. He believes that a large family helps prepare a young person for what can be expected in life. There are many more wonderful happenings and events to share and learn from when families are close that can be passed down to the next generations to come.
Josh Duggar and Anna Keller were in a traditional courtship when Josh decided it was time to propose. Anna was with her family at a restaurant called Gator Landing in Florida. Josh set it up as a surprise when he popped the question with the help of Anna’s parents. He asked, she accepted and both sets of parents gave their blessings to the happy couple.
Their wedding preparations were a family affair. Not only did the Keller’s help out with arrangement, time and materials, but the Duggar family and the Bates family also helped get the wedding exactly how Josh and Anna wanted it to be for them. They saved their first kiss for marriage and fans thought it was the sweetest thing when they saw it aired on the show.
The couple went on their honeymoon and upon their return Anna didn’t have to worry about a place to live, a car or finances. Josh made sure that everything was taken care of before they were married so when they shared their first night together in their very own home she would feel at home, safe and loved.
Shortly after their first anniversary, Anna gave birth to a daughter. One year later she endured a miscarriage and the following year gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Two years later they had another baby boy and are extremely excited and happy about expecting their fourth child in June of this year.
Even though it saddened their parents, Josh and Anna spread their wings and moved to Washington, D.C. to follow their own paths in life. After a two year contract they have now purchased a home in Arkansas to be closer to the rest of their family.
Life is filled with ups and downs, some are easily worked out and others have haunt a person for years. This doesn’t mean that life can’t go on. It just means that each day may be a little harder or take some extra effort to achieve the things that are important in one’s heart and soul to move forward and obtain everything life has to offer.
Today these two lovebirds have more to endure. The media, unlike their fans, family and friends are having a hard time with forgiving and forgetting. Since nothing can be done about the situation that occurred so many years in the past it seems a shame to ruin the lives of this family’s future. Many people may never forget, but since there is absolutely no evidence of any wrong actions ever happening once adulthood was entered fans and family members alike believe that forgiveness is warranted.
Life has lots to offer and each experience and circumstance should be dealt with individually. The most important things on the list are God, family, parenting, homemaking and love. As couples grow and mature many circumstances and how things are looked at, change.
Josh and Anna want what is best for their children. They will do whatever is needed to ensure their little ones have everything they need to live normal lives filled with family, friends, love, walking the right path and understanding what forgiveness is all about. Not everything goes as planned, but you strive for the best in every instance.
