TLC’s “Welcome to Plathville”, which follows the Plath family in rural Georgia, has become one of the most popular shows on television. The Plath family’s parents, Barry and Kim, have chosen a peculiar upbringing for their children, and their decisions have led to a lot of strife in the family – especially between the eldest son and his wife Ethan and Olivia Plath.
Find out more about the couple, who recently revealed they experienced a miscarriage, and what Olivia has to say about how she felt about it.
Olivia Plath and Ethan Plath married in 2018 after first meeting as teenagers on a religious retreat. The couple exchanged letters via old letters before Olivia Plath was able to stay at the Plaths’ house for a few weeks, and soon after they got engaged. After getting married, their lives have changed drastically since filming of Welcome to Plathville began in 2019.
It was clear from the start that Olivia Plath loved Ethan, but struggled throughout the first and second seasons with the way her parents treated them both. These conflicts became more difficult as Ethan seemed to be caught between the two of them, understanding Olivia’s concern for her parents but still wanting to be a part of their lives.
According to People, Ethan and Olivia Plath cut off contact with Kim and Barry by the end of the second season of the series. They had kept in touch with many of the children, especially their parents, who also lived alone, but Ethan’s parents began to forbid them from seeing the younger children. Season 3 started in August 2021, and Ethan and Olivia have still not kept in touch with their parents.
Olivia Plath Talks About Her Miscarriage On Welcome To Plathville.
Ethan and Olivia Plath, both 23, have now been married for about three years. For many, the next logical step is to start a family and have a few children. Olivia Plath seems to have a different take on the idea, especially after experiencing a miscarriage.
In an episode of ‘Welcome to Plathville’, Olivia stated that she was actually happy about the pregnancy loss she experienced ‘a while ago’. According to Us Weekly, she claimed: “I felt like I was wrong to feel that way, and I wish I had more people to talk to who could have been a sounding board or had a different perspective.”
She continued, “I felt bad for being relieved, but I was so relieved because it was a wake-up call of ‘I’m not ready to have a kid. I don’t want a kid.’” Evidently, Ethan was “just as relieved” when he learned about the miscarriage, as the couple has decided to wait a few more years before starting a family. Ethan remarked, “We want to travel around a bit.”
