In case you don’t remember Thanksgiving was only a few days ago and the Duggar family got together to celebrate it. It is also worth mentioning that some of the crew for “Counting On” were also at the Duggar’s home for Thanksgiving to possibly do some filming for the next season of the show. Well, with the family and the crew there it could be easy not to realize that Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband Austin Forsyth are nowhere to be seen in the family’s Thanksgiving photo they uploaded online. You can continue to read below to find out why Joy-Anna and her husband Austin Forsyth were not present for Thanksgiving.

The real reason they weren’t present for Thanksgiving

The main reason to why Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband Austin Forsyth were not present for the Thanksgiving dinner was because they were probably spending it with the in-laws. It was their first Thanksgiving after the wedding it was likely she spent it with her new family. However, her presence was certainly missed at the family holiday by the “Counting On” fans. This was because this Thanksgiving was possibly the biggest Duggar family holiday in history as all the new couples their children were present at the Duggar mansion in Arkansas along with the other couples and their children. For example, longtime couple Jill and her husband Derick were present at the dinner alongside Joseph and his new wife, Kendra Caldwell who is rumored to be pregnant.

As I mentioned above the fans of the family made their opinions known online about Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband not being present for the family’s dinner. For example, one Duggar fan wrote “I love family group photos, but was Joy and Austin? Too bad they couldn’t make it.” While another wrote, “She probably won’t spend every holiday with her family.” Nonetheless, all the rumors to why she didn’t show up to her own family’s Thanksgiving Dinner can finally be put to rest as she most likely spent the holiday with her husband’s family, so there is no family drama at all.

Controversy surrounding Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband, Austin Forsyth

To be honest, there is really only one controversy that surrounds Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband, and that is the rumors that the two of them had a shotgun wedding. In case you aren’t familiar with the term a shotgun wedding is when two people get married for the sole reason that they got pregnant before marriage.

Which is seen as a sin in the ultra-Christian community, which is what the Duggar family are a part of. You can catch up with this family on their TLC reality television show “Counting On” and also on social media.
