Since Welcome to Plathville season 3 ended, Kim Plath and Barry Plath have undoubtedly been through their share of tough times on the show. Their marriage has been tested while their family continues to be divided.
Their children are growing even further apart, which has been a difficult reality for them to face. TLC recently released a preview of what fans can expect for the upcoming season 4, and it looks like Barry Plath & Kim Plath’s relationship may be in trouble.
‘Welcome To Plathville’: Barry Plath & Kim Plath’s Marriage in Trouble?
The open and unconventional couple have been married for almost 25 years. In that time, they have had nine children and raised them to strict expectations. Their marriage and the life they built together were presented as simple and idyllic. They certainly could not have foreseen how far it would eventually fall.
Barry Plath and Kim Plath don’t have the best reputation for their parenting practices, and their strained relationship with their children is testament to this. The devastating split with their eldest son Ethan Plath has certainly played its part. Viewers don’t know much about Barry Plath and Kim Plath other than who they are as parents, but the upcoming season 4 of Welcome to Plathville could change all that.
In the newly released ‘Welcome to Plathville’ season 4 trailer, it is revealed that Barry Plath and Kim Plath are struggling in their marriage. Kim’s main focus has been being a wife and mother and now she wants to find her identity outside of that.
In a shockingly honest moment, Kim revealed, “I’m not happy with my marriage.” Family patriarch Barry is left to understand what is going on and what it means for their future. It’s the first time ‘Welcome to Plathville’ has hinted at possible problems in their marriage. TLC’s surprise trailer can be viewed below.
Now that the older children have grown up and have lives of their own, this may bring some changes to the Plath family home. Kim and Barry have been so caught up in what their children are doing that they may need to stop and evaluate their marriage. They’ve been through a lot of changes over the last few years and this hasn’t been addressed directly. Kim’s parenting style may be evolving, but she makes a lot of decisions in the household and it doesn’t look like that will change anytime soon.
