    Sad, but not unexpected.

  • DeborahB

    Been there. So sad for everyone especially the children. Some advice for the teacher…if a man with 8 kids will cheat on his wife…don’t think for a minute he won’t cheat on you.

  • Dennis

    Jon, best decision you have ever made!

  • DeborahB

    Sad for the kids. Some advice for the teacher. If a man with 8 kids will cheat on his wife, don’t think for a minute he won’t cheat on you.

    Not a fan of the show, but I still feel bad for them and the children.

  • Ben

    Who will want him when he has to get a real job and pay half his income for child support? Who will want her with 8 kids and being the relationship vampire she has been seen to be on tv? He’s a louse for cheating, but why did he marry this harpy in the first place?

  • Darlene

    From Mady catching Kate kissing Steve to Jon rolling up a blunt, this has really become a total bombshell. I am so totally turned off by this show and it is so sad.

  • Jo Anne

    It is very sad news. It is time to be honest and let the chips fall where they may. You can’t keep living a lie, the kids deserve the truth.

  • Emmy

    Selfish, selfish, selfish!!! Bring 8 children into this world and then rip their home apart. It is inexcusable!

  • Exnvywfe

    I feel so sad for the kids. Their parents put this whole ordeal upon them. I don’t feel sorry for either parent because they were both being selfish!

  • Kerky

    Very sad, I remember when the show first started and they seemed so young and so in love with each other, with their children and with life. Look at them now, he acts like he doesn’t know how this happened, being a husband and father of 8, he just wants to be Jon. Grow up, Jon. And Kate looks and acts like some diva instead of a wife and mother. Very sad.

    no, jon will NOT pay half his income in child support. if they split custody, and she retains a high salary, more than likely SHE will pay HIM support. i am sure they will share joint custody. child support is calculated on using both parent’s incomes…there is also a cap on what can be asked for…as long as these kids have money in the bank (although i doubt it), and the cameras removed, they might be okay..but, they will have to have family counseling to get through this mess. can you imagine having your entire life videotaped for strangers to watch? jon and kate didn’t have time to do it themselves…perhaps if they did, this all would have turned out quite differently.

    They need to go ahead and cancel the rest of the shows.Ive watched every show so far but will never watch another

  • D

    this is sad. kate had her ways the show. the way she treated him sometimes on national tv. u can’t blame him for wanted to hang out with other people. i really feel for the kids tho.

  • Joppa

    Absolutely fantastic. Live life like narcissistic losers and, well, the results speak for themselves. I am sure the kids will score a book deal.
