Josh Duggar's wife Anna is reportedly standing by his side after he admitted to child sex abuse, having a porn addiction, and being unfaithful to her.

A source close to the couple told People, "Anna will not leave him. As with her in-laws, she is turning more to her faith than ever. She and Josh are probably praying around the clock right now, I would assume."

The source added it would not be a surprise if "on some level" Anna tries to "absorb some of the blame" for Josh's infidelity.

"Maybe not publicly, ever, but privately, there will be some suggestion of whether or not she should have been more aware of the pressures Josh was under, of the issues he was facing, and how she could have better counseled him or helped him," the insider continued.

The source reiterated, "She is fully and permanently committed to her marriage and her children. And she'll have the support of Jim Bob and Michelle and everyone else in their circle in terms of staying with him and making this work. Divorce is not even something that will be discussed."
 
Though Anna is supporting Josh during the scandals, Josh will face some repercussions from his confession. "As for Josh, in this moment, I would assume he feels like his life is ruined. It will be such a steep and practically impossible climb to come back from this."

Josh's family is still trying to pick up the pieces after his admission. Another source shared, "This wasn't something they ever imagined was possible. They so strictly limit their exposure to these sorts of outside influences – from websites to even the sort of television they watch, if they turn on the TV at all – that they were absolutely baffled by how this could have been possible."

His family was reportedly clueless about Josh's secret side. "It's like he's a completely different person from who they thought he was, and they're still trying to reconcile all that they know is good about Josh, whom they will always love and adore, with what they've learned now."

Despite the scandal, the source believes that the family will be able to overcome all the hardships. "In the end, Josh and Anna will pull through this, Jim Bob and Michelle will weather this and they will give a lot of praise and glory to God for helping to strengthen their bonds to each other and to Him. This will be seen as a test, and they – all four of them – will be determined not to fail.”
