Teen Mom OG stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have gone through some very tough times together, and the couple has always come out on top. However, now that the two are married, it seems that their relationship issues are even more intense than in the past. Recently, rumors hit the internet that Catelynn and Tyler may be headed for divorce, and while the couple have stayed relatively quiet on the rumors, Catelynn is revealing that she and her husband are working on their marriage.
According to Wet Paint, Catelynn Lowell reveals that she and Tyler Baltierra’s marriage isn’t perfect, and that there are always things they could be working on. The couple, who have made no secret of their issues, or the fact that they condone therapy to help work them out, say that communication is key.
“Tyler and I I feel like our communication has always been good. He’s always been good at listening and telling me how he feels. I feel like communication is always something that you’re working on in a relationship anyway. Tyler also has been working with our counselor about how to say things the right way and the tone he says it.”
The Teen Mom OG stars have been together for 11 years, and are the only original stars of the show that are still together after struggling with a teen pregnancy. Catelynn’s co-stars Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood are no longer with the fathers of their children, and Farrah Abraham’s boyfriend, Derek Underwood, was tragically killed before the birth of their daughter, Sophia.
Recently, fans have watched as Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have been struggling with Catelynn’s depression and anxiety issues. On Teen Mom OG, Catelynn detailed her feelings to her husband and her therapist. Finally, Lowell decided it was time for her to seek serious professional treatment, and she booked a month-long stay at an Arizona rehab facility. Catelynn left her home in Michigan to seek treatment while Tyler stayed at home with their 1-year-old daughter, Nova. The time apart was a real test for the couple, as Tyler was overwhelmed with being a temporary single parent, and Catelynn was forced to confront her demons.
When Catelynn Lowell returned home from her rehab stay, things seemed to be getting better. She was feeling good and using the tools she was taught in treatment. However, she later admitted to using marijuana again after she had previously stated she needed to stop smoking the drug on top of taking her depression and anxiety medications. Later, Baltierra was seen telling his wife that she needed to snap back out of the depression and figure something out, because he didn’t think he could continue to live life with her that way forever. Tyler told Catelynn that if something didn’t change he would eventually have to “check out” of the marriage, which left Lowell in tears.
“It’s VERY hard especially when you have dealt with depression yourself. Tyler solutions don’t work for Catelynn problems I have learned.”
Meanwhile, Tyler and Catelynn continue to work on themselves and their marriage like they always have. While their struggles are public because of their involvement on the MTV reality series, their issues are shared by millions of people across the globe. Lowell and Baltierra continue to shine a light on these topics by sharing their stories with the world.
