There have been rumors that this couple is not happy in their marriage, and now the truth is coming out.
They’re the only Teen Mom couple that has been together from the very beginning, even as they struggled through the heartache of giving their first-born daughter up for adoption.
The couple was ecstatic about their second child, but when Nova was born, Catelynn plunged into a dark postpartum depression. In the last season of Teen Mom OG, the couple announced their third pregnancy before suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage.
The young mom then checked into a rehab facility for the sake of her mental health.
In a clip from Teen Mom OG, Tyler’s mom Kim asks how Cate is doing at rehab.
Tyler shares an update from his wife: “I said ‘So how was your classes today?’ and she said, ‘Well, I actually didn’t go to a couple of them. I went and took a nap.’ I guess she just watches movies all night.”
Tyler’s frustration is evident, but he is clear that he does not share his angry feelings with Catelynn. His mom echoes that it must be frustrating. “We just don’t understand what she’s going through,” sympathizes Kim’s husband Bill, explaining that he doesn’t even know what anxiety means.
“Well you’ve never seen her on the couch for days in a row,” Tyler complains, “in her robe.”
“Is that depressing for you?” his mom asks.
“No, it’s not depressing,” Tyler responds. “It’s repulsing.”
Tyler laments, “Something’s wrong with me,” before worrying that he is “losing sympathy and empathy.”
“Maybe the empathy and sympathy is just sucked dry out of me,” he guesses.
“I’m losing empathy for her completely,” his mom agrees.
In an interview with the podcast Reality Life with Kate Casey, Tyler opened up about how difficult it has been for him when Catelynn goes to rehab. “When I walked away from Cate and I didn’t have to be so strong in that moment, I was breaking down every single day,” he confessed. “Dropping Nova off at school, because Cate was in treatment, and I was taking her to school and just crying every day. Every single day.”
Hopefully, they can work thing out in time for their new baby, who is expected to arrive in March.
