Counting On fans were surprised after discovering that Katey's parents were divorced. Apparently, the Duggars strictly prohibits divorce and the family feels strongly about it. However, it appears that they don't really have a choice once a Duggar falls in love with someone despite their dark background.

Joy-Anna Duggar's husband, Austin Forsyth, also has divorced parents. His father divorced his first wife and remarried his mother. This seemingly proves that it's not really a big deal for the Duggars despite their strict evangelicalism.
