Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate Gosselin?

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

I think money and fame went to their heads and it got out of hand, I gave up on the show last year, I couldn't stand watching them anymore, she is control freak and he has no backbone, I loved watching the kids and now I just feel so sorry for them, a broken home, a lonely mansion, being brought up by a nanny, and all their pitfalls documented on tv for the whole world to watch, its a crying shame actually.....

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

Sad, but this was about the best summation of the show I've read yet

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

I agree, both are to blame.   Now the kids have nice play houses - what fun!  It would be better to have one house with children and parents. 

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

I'd like to say that it's the fault of the TV media that insist on producing this kind of "reality" programming, together with all the viewers who insist on watching... but I'll bite my tongue and not say it!

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

Your point is absolutely well-taken, and I plead guilty to contributing to the circus.  It is interesting how the vote pattern has stayed so consist....almost split 55 -45 percent people thinking Kate is more at fault....

I agree with those that said Jon is going through a mid-life crisis. He got saddled with too much responsibility, too young, and now he is rebelling (at the cost of his marriage/young children). I think he needs to grow up and face the music. He may not have wanted all those kids, but the reality is he does, and he needs to be there for them, in every way. Like my mom always said, "You made your bed. Lie in it!"

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

Don't think a person can really place blame on one or the other person here.  This is a ton of responsibility (8 young kids) for anyone and the fact that they are constantly on tv doesn't help either.  My late mom always said that the marriage had to come first: not the kids, not your parents, not anyone.  That the marriage had to be nurtured and cared for first.  My dad always said "never go to bed mad at anyone."  Guess that about sums up my feeling on the subject.

 i really think that money it the real reason they are breaking up. They both are at fault in the choices that they made. He has had to be there when kate does her book signing. She got tired of his attitiude. both are at fault . money having it or not enough is the root of all evil. he only wanted two kids. She wanted to try for one more.. then how to pay for their bigger family needs became more important the the realationship between the two of them. linda

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

I believe they are both equally to blame.  I think the "it's all for the kids" comments are just pc garbage.  The best thing you can do for your kids is put your marriage first.

how does anyone know who wasn't personally involved? it's like asking if so and so is guilty. well, were you there for all the testimony? then how could you know other than opinion?

We don't have cable, but I have read enough reputable articles (not tabloids!) and have seen Kate being interviewed that I agree with KJuneBug.  They have let the money go to their heads and have focused too much on the kids to put their marriage first.  The show has become their focus on making money, and I think, exploiting their children to that end.  Yes, children are wonderful and parents should be thankful for them, but if the foundation (i.e. the marriage) isn't solid then how can the family survive?  If my husband and I always cater to our son, we wouldn't have the alone time to realize why we married in the first place!

I've watched the show on and off (we have a limited satelite package) and I have really noticed that Jon has been getting more selfish/childish as the shows go on.  We have to remember the "editing" that goes on after taping.  I think a lot of Kate's shouting and such comes from frustration with Jon's behaviour.  If you watch, a lot of the bad shouting comes because Jon has wandered off or is otherwise amusing himself.  Leaving Kate to try and watch 8 little ones. 

I'm thinking of one episode in particular, they were on the beach.  The little ones were about 2 (I think).  It was before a hurricane and the wind was so bad.  They were being pelted with sand.  I forget where Jon was wandering off, but he just left Kate there on the beach with 6 crying babies.  I felt so bad for Kate because, just like a good mom, all she wanted to do was scoop up her babies and get them to safety and comfort.  It nearly made me cry to put myself in her place.

If you watched and really listened to the last show.  Kate always spoke of the kids and what was best for them.  Jon's comments were more about "him" and then he'd go "and the kids come first" -just like an after-thought.  I think he was too immature when he got married and hasn't improved much.  A lot of it sounds like a mid-life crisis at 30!  Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if he has a girlfriend hidden in the wings -but that's just me.

 

 

 

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

I absolutely agree with you, also!  People think she is a bossy such-n-such, but I can totally relate to her...even with just 2 kids.  You would absolutely have to be organized and rule-oriented, or you would live in a pig-sty with everyone/thing running amuck.  He just seemed in happy-go-lucky land, playing the "good guy" to Kate's "evil/crazy wife". 

I was not/am not a regular watcher of the show, but I have frequently watched it.  And I was interested in them even before they had their own show.  To me, she seems toned down since this season started, and has been handling her words re: the reationship with care and respect.  HE, on the otherhand, has been a total jerk.  Um... did anyone watch the "American Choppers" episode where they were making him a bike??  All he did was whine about being a father of 8 at 27 years old, how he needed guy time, and many, many insinuations about what a b**** his wife is.  Very respectful, sir.  Indeed!

Obviously, he is having some sort of early mid-life crisis.  I hate to tell him, but I really doubt getting his ears pierced, driving a phat hawg, and shacking up is going to do much to help him.

 

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

Paula, personally, I agree with you 100 percent on what you said.  For a long time I was on "Team Jon", thinking that he was just a victim of kate's bossiness, but as time has gone on my sympathy for Jon has been squandered.....He hates the publicity of the show, but loves the $$ that buys him the sports car, the Trump Tower apartment, etc....

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

They both are! And you really don't want me to write what I really feel! 

Re: Who Is More To Blame For The Break-Up Of Jon & Kate ...

I SECOND THAT, SISTER!
