Mackenzie Douthit Admits Her Marriage Was on the Rocks

We knew it! Rumors surfaced a couple of months ago that Mackenzie Douthit and Josh McKee were on the fritz, but they never confirmed anything. Now the Teen Mom 3 star has admitted the truth -- she and Josh did separate.


Before you get too broken up over the McKee family splitting up, Mackenzie also said that they've since gotten back together, and that she couldn't imagine her life without him. 

In a recent interview with Wetpaint, Mackenzie admitted that they needed some serious counseling earlier this year. "It got pretty bad and he did leave for a while, and we decided that we were going to get a divorce and separate," she confessed.

She continued, "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.'"

Aww, aren't those the best words a wife could ever hear? The pair reportedly had a huge fight falling out a couple of months ago, when she totalled their brand new, uninsured car after going out looking for her "hog-hunting husband," who couldn't be found. She said at the time that her Type 1 diabetes caused a spike in her blood sugar that caused her to become disoriented.

Anyway, they seem to be doing OK these days. She admitted, "We're still working on stuff," but that they try and share the blame for their issues. She continued, "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."

But no matter what happened between them, Mackenzie is glad that they're back together. She confessed, "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 ... But 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."

Are you surprised that Mackenzie admitted that she and Josh temporarily separated?
