Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra took a break earlier this year. On the most recent episode of Teen Mom OG, the couple confirmed they separated during her pregnancy in an effort to repair their broken marriage.
Baltierra says he needed a break so that they could both discover themselves on their own terms. But there may have been another reason why the Teen Mom star wanted some time alone — and Lowell was quick to pick up on it.
The lengthy break was initiated by Baltierra, who broke the news when he and Lowell were attending a couples retreat in Arizona. Lowell was pregnant with their daughter at the time and did not respond well to the request.
“Tyler has been frustrated in our marriage for a while and has been seeing a therapist,” Lowell explained. “He decided he wanted to try to live separately for a month.”
Needless to say, Lowell took the news hard. The Teen Mom star admitted that Baltierra’s request brought up old wounds and made her think about her miscarriage.
But things really took a turn for the worse when Lowell suspected that Baltierra was cheating on her. Lowell worried so much that she asked Baltierra straight up if he was seeing another woman.
According to Radar Online, Baltierra assured Lowell that she is the only woman in his life. Despite her initial worries, Lowell believed Baltierra and eventually came to terms with the break.
Lowell later admitted that living separately gave her more time to focus on herself and raise her daughter, Nova. Only time will tell if the break will fix what was wrong with their marriage, but it sounds like it is exactly what they needed.
