Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee has opened up to fans about her marriage to husband Josh McKee. Fans of the defunct Teen Mom show will recall, Mackenzie and Josh separated back in April… but then they got back together!
Mackenzie tells WetPaint, she was on the brink of divorce. But, at the last moment, they decided to keep their young family together and make it work. Adding, a few weeks down the line, they’re doing “a lot better now.”
Why wasn’t she more open about her struggles on social media? “I try to keep those things off of social media, but you never know what’s going on behind-the-scenes with people,” Mackenzie reveals.
Although, now she admits, “It got pretty bad and he did leave for a while, and we decided that we were going to get a divorce and separate.”
So what exactly happened? “He went and stayed somewhere else, and we just decided that we don’t want to live without each other, and he came back, and he said, ‘I’m sorry.’ But I can’t put all the blame on him or all the blame on me because we just could not get along for the life of us.”
She added, they’re continuing to work past their problems: “We’re still working on stuff. Marriage is always a work in progress and sometimes it will get perfect, and then a door will slam in my face and it will get bad again, and we won’t agree on stuff, or whatever.”
And she’s glad she stuck with him! “I don’t know… I don’t feel like I could ever live without him. If he leaves it’s really going to hurt me.”
She knows her fans will relate to her relationship struggles: “I know also a lot of people are looking up to us, and I feel like all the positive comments from fans makes me hold and want to hold on.”
However, she didn’t keep things together to make anyone else happy. “In the end, I’m glad I’ve held on and stayed with him because he really is a good husband and he’s really patient with me. I’m a really hard person to be married to. I don’t know how he does it some days. It’s vice versa also!”
In other news… Mackenzie has recorded a song!
