Welcome to Plathville star Olivia Plath recently shared a very special first with her husband Ethan Plath. The two have had a rough time over the last year. And Olivia and Ethan Plath are doing everything they can to make their marriage work.
Welcome to Plathville: Ethan Plath & Olivia Plath Considered Divorce
In the first season of Welcome to Plathville, fans watched the conflict grow between Olivia Plath and Ethan’s family. Kim and Barry Plath made it clear that they felt Olivia was a bad influence on their children. And that they didn’t want her around. They even told Ethan Plath that he could come over anytime, as long as he didn’t bring Olivia. Otherwise, the two needed Barry and Kim Plath to supervise them while they spent time with Ethan’s siblings.
Olivia Plath said that she felt hurt that Ethan didn’t do more to defend her. And that the stress and pressure from Ethan’s Welcome to Plathville family created a problem for the couple. Also, the Plath parents were very strict. And Ethan Plath led a sheltered life before he got married. He and Olivia Plath never even kissed, except on the cheek, before they got married. So, the two barely knew each other and they both had a lot to learn. About themselves and about each other. This also caused conflict in their marriage and the pair considered divorce.
Ethan Plath and Olivia Get Help
Besides the conflict with Ethan’s Welcome to Plathville parents, the two had other issues to work through. Like the fact that Ethan Plath didn’t understand women at all. He didn’t even know that menstruation existed before he moved in with Olivia. He and wife Olivia butted heads about many things. When Olivia Plath decided to get a navel piercing, Ethan tried to talk her out of it. He eventually gave in and agreed that she should be able to do whatever she wants. But, Ethan said that it was hard for him to see his wife as an equal because of his parents. Barry Plath and wife Kim taught Ethan that women are the caretakers and that the man was the one in charge. This Welcome to Plathville upbringing skewed his ideas about what his relationship should be like.
But, Ethan Plath didn’t want to lose his wife. So he cut off all contact with his Welcome to Plathville parents to make his marriage to Olivia Plath a priority. The two agreed that they needed distance from the Plath family to be able to work on their relationship. They wanted to have the space to figure out what they expected and needed from their marriage. In the second season, Olivia revealed that divorce had been on the table. And that the couple took steps to prevent that from happening. Olivia said that she and Ethan decided to go to counseling. Now, the couple seems to be doing much better.
