Catelynn Baltierra Breaks Down: I Don’t Want This Separation!

Let no one ever accuse Catelynn Baltierra of holding anything back.

The veteran Teen Mom Og star has been open and honest for years about her battle with mental health issues, along with her occasional struggle to remain happily married to husband Tyler.

The couple has remained together since middle school and has welcomed two kids together (one of which was given up for adoption), yet both sides have admitted at times that it hasn't been easy.

It's still not easy.

Tyler made that evident on the latest episode of Teen Mom OG when he continued to push for a trial separation. He even prepared to move into a new home.

How did Catelynn react to this development? What is her biggest fear?

Scroll down for a look at how the Baltierras are dealing with two very different ideas of what they want from their relationship...

1. Why Must It Be This Way, Tyler?

For the past couple weeks, Teen Mom OG viewers have witnessed Tyler and Catelynn struggle in their marriage, even as they express excitement over Catelynn's pregnancy.

2. What's the Issue Here?

We love each other and yet
Tyler has been there for his wife -- through A LOT. He watched as she suffered a miscarriage in early 2018 and then went to Arizona for a month because she was stuck in a dark depression for awhile as a result.

3. He's Always Supported Catelynn, BUT...

... it's taken an emotional toll. “When does it ever turn around?" he asked some friends on an episode in November. "When is it ever 50/50?! I’m saying this is what I need, awesome. If you can’t, let me know now. I don’t want to waste any time, let me get out of here. Marriage is a bitch."

4. And He Wants Out?

On occasion, yes. Tyler has made it clear he does NOT want to sleep around and that he truly loves Catelynn. He just needs some space sometimes.

5. In a House All His Own?!?

Yes. This was at the crux of the Teen Mom episode that aired on December 10, as Tyler prepared to actually move out.

6. Can We Not Make This a Big Deal?

This doesnt need to be a big deal tyler insisted
“It’s only eight minutes down the road,� Tyler emphasized on air. “We’re just living separate. It’s not like we’re dating other people and never talking to each other for 30 days. We all need personal space sometimes.�
