TV ratings were astronomically high for the Season 5 premiere of Jon & Kate Plus 8 where Jon and Kate Gosselin discussed their much talked about marriage and relationship problems.
After Kate tearfully said “Parents of multiples have triple the divorce rate, and [we were] thinking we were gonna beat that. But I don’t know if I can say that anymore,” my youngest daughter looked at me and said “that must be why you and dad divorced.”
I do remember when my twins were preemies, the social worker told us we should seek counseling as parents of preemies have double the divorce rate. Add on the “parents of multiples” card, the “we married too young” card, and then there was the “my husband is cheating on me” card and we were doomed. In this growing society and numerous card factors, it seems everyone is doomed!
Jon & Kate Gosselin’s personal website is SixGosselins.com, but is currently overloaded with traffic that they exceeded their bandwidth, and I’m thinking they have other things to think about than upgrade their hosting package.
