'Couples Therapy' Finale Recap: Catelynn & Tyler Need Another TV Show Stat

Stuck in Reality 10

Catelynn Lowell Tyler Baltierra Couples TherapyCouples Therapy had its finale tonight on VH1, and you know what that means. Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra of Teen Mom fame are back to being former reality stars. Darnit!!

But wait, there is good news! Unlike rapper Chingy and girlfriend Temple Poteat, who ended the show by ending their relationship entirely, Catelynn and Tyler are not over.

In fact, Tyler had something surprising to say about his cancelled wedding.

According to Tyler, calling off their engagement hasn't changed the "dynamic" of his relationship with Catelynn, nor has it changed the love.

The latter I get. You don't have to be married to love one another.

The former, on the other hand, is pretty amazing. It takes a strong person to be able to go from planning a wedding to a cancelled wedding with no hard feelings or change in the relationship.

But then, we have seen some amazing examples of the strength inside both Catelynn and Tyler on Couples Therapy this season -- from the very first episode when they kept it classy when handling Flavor Flav degrading their decision to choose adoption to the most recent episode when Cate opened up to her mom about her childhood pain.

The main thing we can take away from this season of Couples Therapy is that Catelynn and Tyler are survivors. They got through horrific childhoods. They got through the trauma of a teenage pregnancy. They got through the adoption process. They got through a broken engagement. There's not much they can't do now.

The other thing we can take away? Catelynn and Tyler make for good television!

Not just dramatic television -- although there's been some of that this season, most of it came from Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis, who had to leave the couples house early -- but really good, heart-warming, life-affirming television.

We watch Catelynn and Tyler on TV because we can see they're good kids who you can't help but root for.

So they may not be getting married today or tomorrow, but someday we see it happening ... and we sure as heck want to see them back on television!

Would you watch another Catelynn and Tyler reality show?
