Last week, Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry revealed that she and her husband, Javi Morroquin, had decided to end their relationship after almost three years of marriage.
And during the latest episode of the hit reality show fans were offered a glimpse at the issues which led to that difficult decision.
The episode, which was filmed before the mother of two admitted that she and her military husband intend to divorce, shows Kailyn telling friends about the pressure Javi’s deployment overseas has put on their marriage.
She said that Javi doesn't feel supported during his time away from home and admitted that the couple had been fighting a lot.
Later in the episode, the reality star is also shown confiding in the father of her first child, Jo Rivera, telling him: “Javi and I have been dealing with some stuff while he’s been deployed, and it’s been way harder than I ever anticipated.”
The news comes just one month after Kailyn revealed that she suffered a miscarriage last year – an event which has left both her and Javi struggling to maintain their relationship.
In April Javi admitted that he "needed someone to blame" for the miscarriage and that he had taken his frustration out on his 24-year-old wife.
Kailyn told the Daily Mail: “We’re trying to do the best we can for our kids because they are what really matters.”
We hope things get better soon for Kailyn and her family.
