In the Duggar family, Jim Bob and Michelle’s children marry young and stay united for life — no matter the circumstances.
But RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that Anna’s older sister Rebekah, who also hails from a strict Christian clan, secretly filed for divorce from her husband of more than ten years in 2015.
According to Texas’ Fort Bend County family court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, Rebekah McDonald filed papers against her husband Joshua on May 22 of that year, citing “discord” or “conflict of personalities.”
The 34-year-old requested primary custody of the couple’s two children, with her ex allotted weekend visitation.
But her husband fought for more time, and the couple eventually agreed upon joint custody.
The divorce was finalized that August in a settlement. Rebekah won exclusive medical and education rights over the kids, and Joshua was ordered to pay $785 per month in support.
The former couple hashed out a revised custody agreement in March 2017.
In another family scandal, Anna and Rebekah’s younger sister Susanna Keller welcomed a daughter out of wedlock in 2013. The 25-year-old recently celebrated her engagement to her boyfriend of two years — but her disapproving parents will not be attending he wedding, a source said.
