Maci Bookout and her husband, Taylor McKinney, attended a couples counseling session during last night’s new episode of Teen Mom OG Season 6B.
After Bookout was seen comparing her marriage to hell during a conversation with a friend, she and her husband agree that they should seek professional help before “it’s too late.”
During the new episode, Bookout said that having three kids has caught up with her and McKinney and admitted that they often drink when the MTV cameras go home and freak out about issues that should be minor.
“All of the little things build up because neither one of us communicate them and then all of a sudden we’re mad and we don’t know why we’re mad,” Maci Bookout later told their counselor, according to a report by Radar Online on June 5. “I want to help him understand what I’m feeling without saying it in such an a**hole way.”
Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney began dating after Teen Mom came to an end and debuted their relationship on the series’ reboot, Teen Mom OG. As fans may recall, Bookout was clear with her intentions with McKinney and often spoke about getting married. However, McKinney dragged his feet with the issue and didn’t propose until January 2016, just months before Bookout gave birth to his second child, son Maverick Reed.
Maci Bookout shares two children with Taylor McKinney, 2-year-old Jayde Carter and 1-year-old Maverick Reed, and also has an older son, 8-year-old Bentley, from her previous relationship with Ryan Edwards.

As far as how Maci Bookout’s husband feels about her issues with their marriage, he admitted that he often brushes over issues with his wife.
“I’m pretty good at if she said or did something that bothered me putting it to the side but then once three or four of them builds up over the course of a week I let it all out,” he revealed.
Maci Bookout went on to say that in addition to their communication issues, she often feels like their spark has faded.
As she explained, she would love for McKinney to “just grab my a** every now and then and give me a kiss.”
“I need to feel wanted,” she continued. “I want you to want me.”
Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney got married in October of last year during a ceremony in Florida, which was officiated by Bookout’s grandfather.
“I am so excited because I don’t use the word ‘fiancé’ because I think it’s kind of silly!” Maci Bookout told Us Weekly magazine after tying the knot. “So I’m excited to finally be able to call him my husband.”
“I just love our teamwork. It’s hard to find somebody,” Maci Bookout gushed of her husband after their nuptials. “We both are always willing to help each other and we both get things done; 95 percent of the time, for our lives to be so crazy, it’s actually very calm, in a weird way. So I think our partnership is very, very strong.”
Following their wedding, Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney enjoyed a relaxing honeymoon in the Caribbean.
“Eight days with no children and beer and a beach, it’s going to be awesome. I’d say by day five, though, we’re probably going to be missing the kids a lot!” Bookout said.
