Why did Welcome to Plathville stars Moriah and Micah Plath really move out of their parents’ home? Now, the TLC show is in its fourth season, and fans have watched these siblings continue to grow and live their lives. They are doing what they love and ditching their parents’ strict rules. But why did they actually move out early in the series?
Why did the Welcome to Plathville stars leave their parents’ home?
Early on in the series, fans witnessed some drama and tension between several of the Plath children, Ethan, Moriah, and Micah, and their parents, Kim and Barry.
In Welcome to Plathville Season 2 Episode 1, Moriah explained that she had “moved out slash got kicked out.” At that point, she and Micah had recently moved into a rental home.
She also said that she was “starving for freedom.”
Moriah said, “My parents were … protecting me from the outside world. They tried to control, like, literally everything — what we ate, what we wore.”
However, this made her feel “like an outsider in the real world.”
So, ultimately, this is why she and her brother, Micah Plath, left their parents’ house.
Where are Moriah and Micah Plath now?
Today, Moriah and Micah seem to be doing well. If you’ve been watching Welcome to Plathville Season 4, you probably know that Moriah lives in Tampa, Florida with Ethan and Olivia Plath. Olivia’s brother, Nathan Meggs, also lives with them, though he has not made many appearances on the show.
On the show, viewers have watched Moriah dress how she wants to, get tattoos, pursue her music career, and more. She’s finding out who she is and learning lots along the way.
Meanwhile, Micah has made a huge move out to Los Angeles, California. He seems to be loving life as he makes new friends there. He even recently had his brother, Isaac Plath, out for a visit.
Throughout the rest of the season, viewers will get a chance to see how else Moriah and Micah have grown. They’re still very young. Moriah is just 19 years old and Micah recently turned 21, as shown on TLC.
