The Teen Mom stars have decided to take a break from their marriage, but that doesn’t mean Tyler Baltierra is planning to hook up with anyone else during his time away from Catelynn Lowell. While it was him who suggested they should temporarily separate, Tyler insists that he only wants to take that time for personal growth so that they can fix their marriage.
He tweeted a couple of days ago that ‘Listen…I do not want to be with other women. Have I ever thought about it? Well, DUH! Everybody would just be lying if they said they never have, especially when in a long-term relationship.’
The tweet was posted as the Teen Mom episode was airing, in which he confessed to his dad Butch, that he’d fantasized about a relationship with a different person.
He also addressed another comment he made during that episode: ‘The thing about it is, I just want Cate [from] when we were like 20, 21, 19 when everything was like … I don’t know, dude.’
While it makes sense that social media was outraged, Tyler explained that he only said that because it was before her mental health issues occurred.
Previously, Tyler did admit that some comments he had made about his wife’s struggle with postpartum depression were ‘insensitive.’
But his loyalty while separated is not a huge surprise since the reality TV star explained to Us Weekly that ‘We say, ‘Let’s just do 30 days of self-reflection time. You get to focus on you, I get to focus on me. We’ll continue to do couples’ therapy. We call it 30 days of self-reflection – just positive terminology here.’
Tyler said this to highlight that they don’t even like to use the word ‘separation.’
