1. Let’s start with the Josh Duggar scandal that shook the world.

In 2015, In contact obtained a report from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office regarding eldest son Josh who admitted committing multiple acts of sexual harassment in his teens, including some perpetrated on his own sisters.

2. And don’t forget how Jim Bob Duggar responded to Josh’s misdeeds.

The story gets worse from there, unfortunately. Patriarch Duggar Jim Bob Duggar waited over a year to report Josh’s indiscretions to local authorities, and prevented them from interviewing the teen when they launched a crime investigation in 2006.

3. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar even defended their son’s actions with Megyn Kelly.

And after the news, Jim Bob and wife Michelle Duggar actually got defensive about their eldest son in an interview with Megyn Kelly. “Looking back, we did our best under the circumstances,” Jim Bob told the then Fox News host. “He was still a kid. He was still a young man. He was not an adult. This wasn’t rape or anything like that. That was touching someone over their clothes. “(Even Jill And Jessa Duggar defended Josh, saying it’s a “lie” that Josh is a child molester.)

4. In their TLC program, Jill and Jessa Duggar have not told the whole truth about their “healing process”.

After that Duggar bomb, TLC was canceled 19 children and counting and debuted with a new docu-series, Jill & Jessa: Counting on, focusing on some of the more law-abiding Duggar boys. It could have been a golden opportunity for the famed family to deal directly with their dark past, but instead we caught them lying about their “healing process”.

6. Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth (possibly) had sex before their marriage.

Premarital sex isn’t a no-no for most people these days, but it is for the Duggars.

7. “Rebel” Jinger Duggar started wearing pants and shorts. Horror!

Speaking of Duggar breaking the rules, Jinger Duggar broke with family tradition when he started wearing pants and shorts instead of of rigor skirts. (And don’t even start with her sleeveless dresses. Damn!) He also inspired some of his sisters and sisters-in-law to follow in his footsteps.

8. Michelle Duggar went against her own rules and was caught in pants instead of a skirt.

A little teenage rebellion is to be expected, but we were stunned when Michelle joined her daughter and swapped her skirts for pants. Of course, her display of relative immodesty wasn’t enough for some people, especially since she and Jim Bob were vacationing on the beaches of Hawaii at the time. “Those clothes are going to get warm, heavy and miserable,” said one critic.

9. Jana Duggar’s alleged boyfriend did not follow Duggar’s courtship rituals and was more liberal than his family … as if that were difficult?

Despite the pants, Michelle is probably still strict when it comes to her courtship rules. So let’s assume she wasn’t too excited Caleb Williams, who was said to be courting Jana Duggar at one point, since he is “a little more liberal” than the Duggars and does not “really” follow courtship rituals, according to one Online radar. Later, Caleb caused even more scandal when news broke that he had been arrested for sexual assault in December 2018. Although he pleaded not guilty, he hasn’t been seen with the famous family since.

In November 2019, the family had a new investigation on their hands.

11. Joy’s husband Austin was sued for fraud involving a house he “turned over.”

Austin was sued by a couple who bought a home that he remodeled and overturned, In contact confirmed on December 2, 2019. According to legal documents, plaintiffs accused Duggar’s father-in-law of lying about obtaining a permit for a septic tank on the house they bought from him in June 2018. After moving in that August, the couple said they noticed that “their backyard was saturated on the driest days and that an unmistakable smell of human waste emanated from their backyard.”

The lawsuit alleged that the county required all properties sold with a septic system to have a certificate or permit from the Department of Health before being sold, and one was not obtained for the property. Austin – the defendant in this case, and someone known to have done this type of house-flipping job – said the work was done with “proper permits,” but the lawsuit claimed it wasn’t true. He denied most of the allegations.

In February 2020, The sun reported that the buyers requested a partial summary judgment for fraud in order to obtain compensation for one of the claims. Austin responded, asking the court to deny their request to pay, which an Arkansas judge did on December 18. While Austin is off the hook for now, he may still be sentenced to pay when the case goes to court, as is still pending. No test date has been set.
