Anna Duggar is still fighting for her marriage.

The second installment of Jill & Jessa: Counting On opened with Anna addressing her harrowing year.

"I knew about this long before it hit the press," Ann said of her family's first scandal, which saw the release of reports that Josh Duggar had behaved inappropriate toward five underage girls when he was teen. Anna explains that Josh was "very detailed and very honest" with her parents when they visited Arkansas for the first time and met his family. Having to relive this information "was like ripping open an old wound," she says.

Shortly after this news broke, their daughter Meredith Grace was born, and Anna said her fourth child's birth provided the couple with some much needed hope.

But then Josh's second scandal – Josh admitting his infidelity and pornography addiction – broke, and that was a total shock to Anna. She admitted her first reaction was denial.

"It felt like a bad dream," said Anna, 27, as she fought back tears. At this point, the camera focused on her fidgeting hands. "It's such a betrayal for a spouse for through what we're walking through and it was hard."
