I think you can pretty much tell a marriage is over when a spouse disappears for the other spouse's birthday. Last night in Jon & Kate was Kate's birthday. The episode was filmed back in March and back then all of America thought everything was wonderful between the pair. Other than Jon's hairplugs that is. Anyway, if we had not known about the fact they were cheating on each other, it might have all seemed innocent. Jon's explanation for being gone was this. "I went out to Utah for, like, five days," he says. "I just wanted to get back out there and ride with my friends. It just happened to fall on Kate's birthday."
Uh huh. Tonight when you get home or see your spouse or significant other why don't you tell them that instead of being at home for their birthday and being with your 8 kids that you decided that you want to fly across the country and spend time with your friends. I'm guessing that conversation will be a real joy.
Even if we hadn't known the couple was in trouble I think anyone with a brain would have thought something was wrong. You just don't do that. People miss birthdays all the time but it is not usually by choice. Oh, and they don't spend five days with their friends when one of the friends is someone with whom they are sleeping. Yep. Deanna Hummel was on the trip with Jon. Oh, did you hear that somehow when Deanna's brother got kicked out he managed to hang on to her bed. I think he is selling her bed and sheets on eBay. Talk about Ick. Nast!
