Teen Mom OG Recap: Love and Marriage Counseling

by at .

Last night's Teen Mom OG Season 4 Episode 10 saw Maci Bookout struggling with issues with a man in her life, but not who you think:

Taylor McKinney. Her husband.

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that Maci's ex, Ryan Edwards, has been the subject of a great deal of scrutiny for months.

Well, it turns out not everything is great at home for Maci either. She and Taylor are understandably struggling with having three kids.

Keeping their marriage healthy with that kind of busy lifestyle is no easy fast, and Maci revealed her drunken fights with Taylor off camera.

She decided to propose they go to marriage counseling with her husband to “fix it before it gets too bad to fix,” and he agreed to this.

"I want to be able to help him understand what I’m feeling without saying it in such an a--hole way,” Maci said at their very first session.

If we learned anything from this, it's that both of them seem committed to each other and to having a healthier relationship in the future.

On last week's Teen Mom OG, Maci and Amber (along with Catelynn, but not Farrah) spent time in Puerto Rico on a little girls' getaway.

Amber really missed Leah, understandably, and was excited to see her daughter this week. Boy did she make up for lost time!

Portwood said they were going to spend the weekend staying up all night and having fun, putting on her makeup like a "baby hooker."

That's her quote, and it's super weird.

Shifting gears before we dwell any longer on that, Amber’s ex Gary Shirley made Amber drop Leah off early to reveal his new house.

According to Amber, this was more of an attack on her than a surprise for Leah, and she made her fiance, Matt Baier, drop Leah off.

Portwood just couldn’t even pretend to be excited for Gary, saying “he’ll do things to spite me sometimes ... I could not drop her off.” 

Co-parenting is never easy, is it?

Meanwhile, in the great state of Michigan, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra revealed that have not seen Carly in two years.

Carly, of course, is their first child, who they placed for adoption, and their lock of communication with her adopted parents is difficult.

“I’ll keep asking, though,” Tyler said of trying to reach out and ask to speak to Carly, who lives in another state with her family.

Finally, Farrah Abraham confessed that her most recent ex, Simon Saran, struggled with accepting her late boyfriend Derek Underwood.

Derek, of course, is deceased.

He died while Farrah was pregnant with their daughter, yet he still has a big role in her life, because Farrah keeps his memory alive.

Some have accused Farrah of doing this for the cameras, but there's no question it's made an impact on Sophia, and a special one.

Still, to hear Abraham tell it, Simon wasn't ready to accept this, and Farrah didn't seem too crushed, instead embracing the single life.

Sophia, she said, “likes to be involved” in the dating scene for her mom, and we're not even kidding. She apparently screens all applicants.

According to Soph, she didn't like one guy Farrah found on a dating app because, in the child's words, he was “not like daddy Derek.”
