Welcome to Plathville stars Kim and Barry Plath have made their marital issues public on their family’s TLC show. And now, it looks like it’s all come to an end. The couple officially has officially called it quits and has issued a statement. Keep reading to get all of the details.
Kim and Barry’s lives have been featured on TLC for several years now. Their show features them and their children, who were raised in a very sheltered environment. Over the past few years, the oldest kids have begun to branch out and try new things, ditching their parents’ strict rules. And this season, Kim has been on a similar path.
Currently, Welcome to Plathville Season 4 is airing on TLC and is also available to stream on discovery+.
Kim & Barry Plath’s Marital Issues
On Welcome to Plathville Season 4, Kim and Barry’s separation has been documented. Fans watched as Kim opened her own dance studio, began dressing differently, lost weight, and had a complete transformation.
Barry wondered if his wife was going through a mid-life crisis.
Ultimately, these changes helped her realize that she was unhappy in her marriage. She mentioned that she’s been a mom and a wife for the past 25 years and that she hasn’t had an opportunity to be herself.
Throughout the season, Kim has separated from her husband and began sleeping on the couch or staying at their rental properties.
On the Tuesday, June 28 episode of the show, she let the word “divorce” slip while talking to her daughters. This left Barry shocked, of course.
Now, in real-time, the Welcome to Plathville stars have officially split up.
