So I'm sitting here watching the Jon and Kate "Annoucement" episode.
I can't say that I'm surprised, but I am sad for them.
They're apparently going to keep filming the show. Kate sat there crying and looking like the martyr and I could only keep thinking that she made her bed and now she's having to lie in it. Jon just seemed so darned ambivalent about it all.
I would have had much more respect for them had they said that they were going to take a break from filming and that they were going to work on their marriage and take themselves and the children out of the limelight.
I don't know how I would have handled it if I were in their shoes, but above all I would like to think that I'd put my marriage first. My faith has taught me that God comes first and then our spouse and then our children. Something tells me that their faith isn't what they have portrayed to the media or they'd be coming to a different conclusion.
I am sad for the children. As Kate said, they're now another statistic. It didn't have to be that way.
