  1. I get very tired of them and the way they treat Ethans parents horrible it seems to me that maybe she had trouble with her own parents and is taking it out on Berry and Kim and turning her husband against them they should have some respect maybe they aren’t perfect but they are his parents

  2. I feel bad for Ethan and Olivia. It’s sad how his parents have treated his wife from the beginning. They don’t like her due to her showing Ethan different things that he missed out on while living with his parents.
    I think Kim wants to or has to be in control of everything & everyone. Just my opinion

  3. Young couples have their ups and downs adjusting. It is up to the couple to start with a sound foundation and grow from there. It never helps to add a family in a budding relationship and for the parents not to accept the partner because they are not exactly like what their spouse grew up with. When the family children go out on their own they will also be trying things that they were not allowed to do in their (in this case controlled) parents home. People need to be a little more accepting. The parents in America are not supposed to pick the partner for their children. It is up to the person who they choose to marry. What happens as in this case the parents are estranged.
