Jon and Kate Gosselin had been a married couple for ten years. In the first year of their marriage, they had noticed that Kate was not able to get pregnant; therefore, they had decided to undergo fertility treatments to have their own children. As a result, in the second year of their marriage, Kate got pregnant with twins. As they were raising their twins, they decided to have one more child; consequently, they underwent fertility treatments again. However, this time Kate got pregnant with sextuplets. Even though, they knew raising eight children would be extremely challenging, they decided to keep all six children. Now that their sextuplets are five years old and their twins are eight years old, they have decided to get a divorce. I believe Jon and Kate, as the parents of eight children, are totally responsible for their divorce because Jon has a passive personality and refuses to complete his responsibilities and Kate is interested in the reality show more than her family.
As a mature couple, Jon and Kate are solely responsible for their separation. Jon, as a 32 years old man, does not want to accept the fact that he is 32 and the father of eight children. He still wants to have the freedom of a single man. In addition, according to some magazines, people have seen him cheating on his wife. Kate has changed a lot; over the past five years the reality show and the money that she is making because of it has become a higher priority for her than her husband and eight children.
In conclusion, Jon wants to be free again and feels that his wife does not love him anymore and Kate is addicted to the reality show and wealth. They have decided to separate, because they do not have any feelings toward one another and have different interests and priorities.
