After spending the last seven months in Qatar, Javi Marroquin is soon to finish up his tour of duty with the US Air Force.
Unfortunately, he won't be returning to the home life he left behind.
Javi and Kailyn Lowry separated not long after he went overseas.
The Teen Mom 2 stars fought publicly on social media while Javi was deployed, a sad pattern that shows no signs of slowing down.
As he prepares to return to US soil for the first time since he and Kailyn parted ways, it looks as though tensions haven't eased in the slightest.
Currently, Kailyn is vacationing in Puerto Rico with her two sons, Isaac, 6, from her previous relationship with Jo Rivera, and Lincoln, 4.
According to Radar Online, Javi is less than pleased with Kailyn for taking Lincoln out of the country (allegedly without informing him first).
He's been expressing his displeasure to friends and on social media.
"I don't fear commitment, I fear wasting my time," he tweeted in apparent reference to Kailyn's earlier remarks about Javi's reluctance to settle down.
Passive aggressive much? Team Kailyn seems to think so.
Lowry's friends have spoken out on the matter, insisting that at this point, Marroquin is simply looking for reasons to get angry:
"Kail loves to travel and thinks it's important for her boys to travel as well and see everywhere they possibly can," a source told Radar.
"She will be back before he gets home."
Like everything else with these two, it's a complex dispute, and there's no easy to determine who (if anyone) is in the wrong here.
Unfortunately, it's the sort of issue that Javi and Kailyn will undoubtedly face many times as parents in the coming years.
We don't want to say they haven't handled it well up until now, but ... there's some room for improvement, let's put it that way.
