A former employee of the Duggar family spoke to The Hollywood Gossip and gave his take on Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth’s marriage, stating that the pair were definitely alone together before they tied the knot. This flies in the face of the Duggar rules that those who are not married must be chaperoned at all times.
The reality TV stars have been the subject of much speculation over their 10-month old marriage, with the latest speculation that Austin might be verbally abusive toward Joy. The anonymous source told The Hollywood Gossip that Austin was raised in such a strict environment, that he wouldn’t be surprised if sometimes he is overly harsh with young Joy. His father was incredibly tough on him growing up, which may have spilled over to his interactions with other people.
