Ethan Plath, the eldest son, married and moved out, which caused a lot of things to change. Moriah Plath spent a lot of time with Ethan’s wife Olivia and even got a job as her assistant. This allowed Moriah to see how other people lived and experience more of the real world.
Then, Olivia set up a modeling audition for Micah Plath because he said he wanted to try it. As the older Welcome to Plathville children began to get a taste for a different life, the Plath parents and their rules seemed harsh to them.
