I'm Through...

it's official...this is no longer on my 'favorite show' list.
i can't even tell you how disappointed i am.
goodbye jon & kate, sorry you don't love your children enough to work through your apparent problems and selfishness and give them what every child deserves...
an intact family!

I am with you! I told Martin before the show aired that the only thing that I wanted to hear was that their family and marriage was first and they were going off the air to focus on that.. I couldnt even bring myself to blog on it because i just didnt want to give it a forum.. I am with you.. times get tough but you don't walk away.. You CHOSE to create those lives. It was a conscious decision to bring into the world those children and now you will be changing who they are forever.. I was so sad. It weighed on my heart for the kids. I am a child of that type of dysfunction and i can tell you I have used it to motivate myself to always be grateful for my family, my husband and to ensure we are providing a two parent intact family..

Yep....I am not going to contribute to their bad decision by watching anymore either. I didn't even get a sense that they TRIED to work things out. I have been married 34 years, and believe me there were some very hard times, along with the joyful times. Marriage is WORK....children are work. But when you commit to either, you owe giving it all of your heart and your soul and honor your vows to each other and to God. It made me sick. Hugs, Annie

I've not followed the story, but am disgusted with all the reports of late.

I am so with you about Jon and Kate being a disappointment. I just thought that they would totally try to work it out. Then when they said they were going to split but still do the show I think their true colors came through. It seems like they are really in it for the money and that is it. I was happy to see that TLC is going to put the show on hold! I don't think there will be any viewers left. My new favorite to replace Jon and Kate is 18 and counting, now that is a true family with their priorities in line with Christ.
Thanks for letting me vent and have a great day!

I'm with you...I am so disappointed...it's all about the money and it makes me very sad. I'm really happy that TLC has decided to put production on hold...no need to continue to promote dysfunction. My heart just hurts for the children.

Good for you... I agree, what a shame, they should have announced, they were stopping the show, getting professional counseling, and ask that their privacy be respected through it... I have only seen about 4 shows total in all the years, I just had such a hard time with the way Kate treated Jon, so this wasn't the show for me...

I'd have to say I only watched a couple episodes by accident in the background of doing something else and after seeing the way she spoke to her husband and sometimes her kids I just couldn't stomach watching it on a real basis. I'm glad to hear it's stopping though.

Totally agree Julie. If they both were really there "for the kids" as they like to say over and over, then they would work on their marriage and not get a divorce. Especially where complex situations like this one is concerned, it is incredible and terrible. I have 8 kids and it has been uphill most of the way. That is just the nature of life. And marriage most days is more work than we ever knew it would be. But so what? Thats life. Dig in and stop complaining. They have it better than so many people. It is horrible.

Amen!! I totally thought{hoped} that they were announcing that they were going to quit the show to work on their marriage. Not so...It is very sad.

sad is what is happening in Iran...or even with poor children in your community
who cares what that couple do?
children with bad parents are all over the world, important thing is what do yo do with the suffereing around you...rigth?
