Reality star couple Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar did not expect money and their son Josh would bring them to their breaking point. However, rumors are swirling that the Duggar couple is also heading for a split up due to their son’s martial issues.
The Duggar couple is now short on finances after their TLC pulled the plug on their program “19 Kids & Counting.” Celebdirtylaundry.com writes that aside from their financial problems, issues on their son’s martial problem is taking its toll on theirs.
This after Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna, reportedly asked the Duggar couple that she be compensated substantially to stay married with their son or break her silence regarding Josh’s sex escapade.

Since the scandal broke news, TLC cut off their ties with the Duggar family that meant losing advertisement and endorsement deals. The family though tried to regain ground as siblings Jill and Jessa Duggar starred in a spin-off show “Jill and Jessa: Couting On.” However, this still fell short of even leveling their previous show.
As if that was not enough, the Duggar family hopes that the spin-off show would get the traction following Jessa’s pregnancy. But it seems all hopes are lost and it has taken its toll as the show’s viewership is not getting the needed push.
Reports note that the Duggar family is split on Josh Duggar’s martial issues with Jim Bob cutting ties with his son while Michelle wants to give Josh a second chance.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are in trouble since they need money to raise their 10 other children below 18 years old that is mainly rooted on their son’s marital affairs. They hope to bounce back from the setback. But it will surely take a while as people generally crave for scandals and not see them get a happy ending.
Seeing a couple walk the talk has its pressure and both Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are feeling it. Many predict that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will eventually file for divorce by the end of the year. If they are not able to seek help then eventually it will really happen due to their son’s negligence.
