Anna Duggar didn’t let her husband’s cheating scandal get in the way of attending a family member’s wedding over Labor Day weekend. The former reality star was spotted attending the wedding of Amy Duggar, her husband’s cousin, on Sept. 6.
Us Weekly captured a photo of the 27-year-old mom of four attending Amy Duggar’s nuptials with Dillon King in Bentonville, Arkansas. In the photo, Anna Duggar is seen sans her husband of almost seven years. Josh Duggar, 27, who is believed to be receiving treatment for his pornography addiction, among other issues, at Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Illinois, was not present for the ceremony.

While Anna Duggar went stag to the wedding, she wasn’t alone. Us Weekly reports that she was seen standing close to her father-in-law, Jim Bob Duggar, during the service and had her 2-year-old son, Marcus, “in her arms.”
Amy Duggar hinted to People that her in-law was in good spirits on her big day. “I saw her before the ceremony and just gave her the biggest hug ever,” she told the magazine. “That’s when I got the most emotional. She told me to have just an amazing day.”
While Dillon King and Amy Duggar have both publicly spoken out against Josh for his cheating, Anna still allowed her eldest child to participate in their wedding. Daughter Mackynzie, 5, served as a flower girl, People reports.
Prior to wedding into the Duggar clan, King slammed Josh Duggar for having paid accounts on the affair site Ashley Madison. King told In Touch Weekly he felt the reality star’s list of mistresses would continue to grow following claims from porn star Danica Dillon that she was one of his former sex partners. “Oh, I’m sure it’s not just the one person,” he said.
He added that he felt Anna Duggar should leave her husband but that she was being counseled to stay in the marriage. “I know Anna’s parents are talking with her about staying with Josh,” he said. “I don’t know what she’s thinking. [What Josh did] was premeditated. It’s a double life kind of thing. If it were me, I would leave him.”
Josh Duggar admitted to being unfaithful to his wife in a statement on Aug. 20 after it was revealed he had paid for “affair guarantee” accounts on Ashley Madison. Six days later, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar released a statement saying their eldest son had entered a long-term treatment program.
Josh and Anna Duggar have been married since September 2008. They share four children: Mackynzie; Michael, 4; Marcus; and Meredith, 1 month.
