On the Teen Mom OG episode “I Choose You,” Catelynn says “getting pregnant was very unexpected” and she knows that her husband Tyler has been “very frustrated” with their marriage and has been seeing a therapist. In therapy, Tyler was told that he needs “something to change in the relationship for you to feel good about the relationship.” When Tyler told Catelynn he wanted to try living separately for a month, she says she was “devastated at first” but now that she’s started her own therapy, “I’m more comfortable with the idea.”
When Teen Mom OG producer Kerthy asks Catelynn and Tyler about the status of their couples therapy, Catelynn says she wants to do that too — after doing her own individual therapy. When Tyler speaks about his idea of living separately, Catelynn interrupts him once, twice, at least three times. When she interrupts Tyler and says sarcastically, “Am I jumping for joy for it, no,” he replies, “I don’t think any of us are.”
Catelynn admits that when Tyler said he wanted to live separately, it hurt. Tyler was empathetic and knew it was going to be hard to even say it. That’s when Catelynn says she believes “it’s harder for a mom” because she has to take care of a 3-year-old and be pregnant. “It’s a lot of stress,” to which Tyler says, “I get it.” He does get it. While he doesn’t know what it’s like to be pregnant, Tyler has taken care of their daughter every time Catelynn went into rehab. (She returned for her third time in January.) Teen Mom OG airs Mondays at 9 pm on MTV, right before Teen Mom: Young + Pregnant.
