2015 hasn’t been a great year for the Duggars.
Not only did Josh Duggar destroy the family’s wholesome brand with his molestation and cheating scandals, but now Jim Bob Duggar‘s sister Deanna Duggar is set to divorce her husband of nine years, Terry Jordan.
The exes are parents to Amy Duggar King, who wed her longterm boyfriend Dillon King back in September.
The split between Deanna and Terry is a bit scandalous considering the clan doesn’t advocate divorce no matter the circumstance (Anna Duggar, anyone?!).
Not to mention Amy’s mom gave birth to her out of wedlock, another big no no in the Duggar family.
Mrs. King said of the split:
“They’ve had a roller-coaster relationship for as long I can remember. I’ve always been the mediator between them, instead of just being their daughter I was also the counselor.”
Aww! Sounds like A.K. had a bit of a rough childhood! Hopefully the divorce eases the tension in her life…some people are just better apart!
“I’ve learned it’s not my place to try and ‘fix’ their relationship anymore. They are grown adults and I am, too. My main focus is to be a good wife, a help-mate, and Dillon and I work everyday to keep our marriage strong and healthy. Love isn’t a feeling, it’s a choice.”
So true! Especially since Terry cited “intolerable treatment” from Deanna as the reason for the split — sounds super toxic!
All the 27-year-old can do now is to focus on her marriage and happiness!
