Season 4 has proven to be quite the emotional rollercoaster for the Plath family, and it looks like the drama isn't ending anytime soon. Kim and Barry have certainly come a long way since their TV debut, from putting up a united front and defending their lifestyle, it now looks like they're fighting to keep their marriage afloat.

But, it's a little too late for damage control, seeing that Kim is more than ready to walk out of her 25-plus year marriage. And while the family grapples with this change, the one who is still struggling to make sense of the situation is none other than Barry.

As the couple sat down to discuss the future of their relationship, Barry made it known that he was left feeling 'weird' and 'lonely', with all the changes that were happening. To him, their marriage was one that 'would never be shaken' and yet that's exactly what happened. He even pointed out that he still had questions -- he wanted to know what had prompted all of this change, causing her to throw away their relationship after 25 years of being together. He even spoke about getting professional help, in the hope of fixing their marriage.

However, for Kim, the situation was beyond repair, as she turned down the idea of counseling. As she told Barry that it was 'past that', his response to her was why was she being 'selfish'. Unfortunately, that statement alone did more harm than good, as Kim lashed out in the confessionals, noting that she was not being selfish. To her, it was not selfish that she wanted a happy marriage. To her, it felt as though Barry was saying that she didn't have the 'right to be happy' or be in a 'happy marriage'. She felt as though she didn't matter to him, pointing out that it was the main reason behind their split. 

What do you think? Is Kim making a valid argument? Is Barry to blind to see the error of his ways? Or is Kim being unreasonable here? Sound off in the comments below! 

'Welcome To Plathville' Season 4 airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm ET/PT on TLC.
