On Saturday, September 26, Josh and Anna Duggar celebrated their wedding anniversary. The couple has been married for 12 years now.
On social media, Anna shared a family photo and wrote a sweet message. She writes, “12 years ago today we said, ‘I do!’ I’m so thankful for God’s grace and kindness that has continually surrounded our family! Joshua, I’m looking forward to growing old with you! ♥️”
In addition to featuring Josh and Anna, their kids are in the picture too. This includes Mackynzie, 10, Michael, 9, Marcus, 7, Meredith, 5, Mason, 3, Maryella, 10 months. In the photo, the family is standing outside together. It appears to be a recent photo, as all of their kids are pictured.
On Anna’s post, she has limited the comments. This helps to filter out some of the nasty comments fans might leave. This is likely due to the expected backlash she might receive. Longtime fans of the family may recall hearing about Josh’s rocky past. To this day, the family still receives negative comments from fans and critics alike. She has nearly one million followers, so many Instagram users have the opportunity to see her posts.
The Duggar family also wishes the couple a happy anniversary. On their Instagram stories, Jim Bob and Michelle write, “We love you and your precious family!” They also share a photo of Josh and Anna with their children.

Because of Josh’s troubled past, fans admire Anna for her strength. Some of Anna’s followers think that she should have gotten a divorce. But, Josh and Anna seemingly worked through the issues they were facing. Now, they appear to have a happy marriage and family.
One fan comments, “I admire your heart SO much, and the strength it took to forgive. You are a woman of true faith. A testimony to other woman, who may be wondering if they could have a restored marriage.”
Another Duggar fan writes, “So glad you could overcome your trials and tribulations and become stronger together.”
Plenty of other comments are from fans who are praising Anna for her grace and strength. Some even hope she writes a book about her life. Naturally, there are a few commenters who are critical of Josh and Anna’s relationship. They hope that Josh is making better choices now than he did before.
