'Welcome to Plathville': Ethan Plath wants to sell home after separating from Olivia
Although he hopes their marriage can work out, Ethan believes he has truly outgrown his hometown
On this season of 'Welcome to Plathville', the older Plath kids are navigating through their relationships without Kim and Barry's influence. While Moriah and Max are going strong, Micah is making the most of his youth and refuses to be tied down. But for Ethan and Olivia, it has been far from smooth sailing.
For Olivia and Ethan, their marriage honestly seems to have gotten past the point of repair. The two have stated that they are now separated and are unsure of what the future holds for their relationship. However, in an interesting turn of events, Ethan is now ready to leave his hometown of Cairo behind.
After Olivia packed her things and left for an undisclosed number of days after a massive argument, Ethan, too, decided he needed some time away. No one knew where he was off to, all he did was leave Olivia a note stating that he needed time to himself. Having returned home, Ethan is now determined to put his and Olivia's home up for sale. Ethan explained what led to his change of heart was his time away from home.
This getaway made him realize that there is so much more to see and do in this lifetime and if he stays here, it's unlikely that he'll ever experience any of those things. More importantly, he stated that this is a choice he wants to see through, even with Olivia or not, because he is not sure where their marriage stands. Ethan even went as far as to get the house listed, showing the real estate agent around.
During the same process, he reminisced about his marriage and the memories the two made together -- from the beautiful piano he purchased for Olivia to the porch they built together. He hoped that Oliva would notice his effort to sell the home as it could help mend their broken relationship. With only the listing left to be signed, it looks like Ethan and Olivia are ready to move on to the next phase of their lives, with or without each other.
Do you think Olivia and Ethan can make things work out? Or will this separation finally lead to a divorce? Or can Ethan's move to sell their home be the reason that helps save their marriage? Sound off in the comments below and tells us why they should stick together or call it quits.
