Welcome To Plathville's Ethan & Olivia Plath 'relieved' about having miscarriage as they 'weren't ready to have kids'
OLIVIA Plath opened up about being 'relieved' about suffering a miscarriage amid marriage trouble with husband Ethan.
On Tuesday's episode of Welcome to Plathville, Olivia, 23, confided in Ethan's sister Moriah, 18, as they had a conversation about relationships and sex.
After discussing birth control with Moriah, who gushed about her relationship with Max, Olivia said she wasn't using any protection.
She then admitted that she suffered a pregnancy loss but was relieved it didn't happen.
"I did get pregnant. A little while back. And I miscarried." she said.
'I DON'T WANT A KID'
“I felt bad for being relieved, but I was so relieved because it was, like, a wake-up call of, like, 'I’m not ready to have a kid. I don’t want a kid.'"
"Ethan was just as relieved as me." she added.
In a confessional, Olivia said: "I know the topic of miscarriage is something that's like, super personal and affects a lot of people and people feel very differently. But I also think there's a stigma around it and there's not a lot of freedom to talk about it," Olivia said.
"I know when I went through a miscarriage, I felt really alone because I was glad," she admitted. "And I felt like I was wrong for feeling that way and I wish I'd had more people to talk to who could've been a sounding board or who could've had a different perspective, maybe than what I was raised with."
'NOT DOING GREAT'
In her chat with Moriah, Olivia admitted that she and Ethan were "not doing great."
Olivia recalled being the one always "guiding" Ethan after he moved out of his parents' home.
"For a while it worked, it worked being the one showing new things and giving new experiences and like, guiding him along."
Olivia then admitted to Moriah, "I want a relationship that is equal."
"I can go to therapy, I can try to heal and process and grow, but I can't do that for Ethan."
Eldest child Ethan, 23, is estranged from his parents after they didn’t agree with Olivia's influence on their son and the other children.
This lead to the couple breaking ties with them on the second season of the show.
CUTTING OFF KIM AND BARRY
Ethan and Olivia became upset when Barry and Kim moved off their farm and into a home just minutes from the couple.
Despite Ethan and Olivia’s plans to move out of state, The Sun previously reported they still own the Cairo, Georgia home.
Micah and Moriah also moved out of the family home to live a more modern lifestyle.
They even slammed their parents on the TLC series for “not preparing them” for adult life.
Though their parents don’t agree with their career and life choices, the two do visit the family often.
Moriah is an aspiring singer and Micah, 20, is working on his modeling and acting career.
The younger children; Lydia, 17, Isaac, 13, Amber, 10, Cassia, eight, and Mercy, six, still live with Kim and Barry under their strict conservative rules and fundamentalist Christian lifestyle.
