Within the last few months, Jessa Duggar Seewald has definitely changed her opinion about her older brother Josh Duggar.
After the former 19 Kids and Counting star publically turned her back on Josh in the wake of his Ashley Madison scandal, a member of her new family is opening up about the expectant mother’s struggle during this trying time!
Jessa’s sister-in-law Jessica Seewald said that Josh’s high profile scandals have put an emotional strain on the 22-year-old and her husband Ben Seewald, saying:
“Obviously you don’t stop loving someone you care about regardless of their bad choices, but I’m sure it’s heartbreaking. Ben and Jessa are very tender, so I’m sure they’re doing as much as they can for everyone involved.”
Jessa defended her brother after he admitted to previously molesting underage girls (which included Jessa and her sister Jill.) But after Josh admitted to being unfaithful to his wife, the Duggar clan publically chastised him.
Jessica agrees that Josh’s recent admissions have shown his extreme hypocrisy. She continues:
“In a world riddled with people who profess Christ and His love with their mouths, yet with their lives portray a totally different set of values, sometimes it becomes necessary to stand up and speak the truth.”
