    I've known plenty of assholes who were raised well by lovely people and conversely I've known plenty of assholes who somehow managed to raise lovely children. Parenting is important but it's somehow not the only predictor of how someone turns out.

    "Eating Disorder" is this season's "PCOS."

    For a food diary to work, you have to measure your portions accurately. We saw what Whitney thought of regular food portions a few seasons ago when Glenn bought her food storage containers suggesting they held a normal portion of food.

    I don't know - for some people that's not a big deal. It would drive me nuts but everyone has their own standards for what they can live with. I agree that there are some things that no one should have to tolerate but Stephanie may feel that moodiness and outbursts aren't as big a deal as say, someone who let's tension build and then carries a grudge. AJ does at least seem to have the ability to have things blow over and I don't see evidence that he holds a grudge. I don't see Keith as lazy. He works four nights a week and he goes to school. I worked full time and went to school part-time for four years. You can't do it if you're lazy. I lived alone when I did it so I had to attend to basic needs but my house wasn't as clean or organized as I would have liked; I ate much more take out and prepared food and seldom cooked (which I love to do) and laundry got done at the last minute. I'm not saying Kristine is responsible for all the household chores but I don't think it's accurate to characterize Keith as lazy. If they would but a little energy and thought into advanced food prep and could afford someone to do housework every other week that would solve most of their division-of-household-labor issues. I seldom ate breakfast until I got married. I'm not a morning person but my husband is. He makes breakfast for me most days (pancakes today but it was a snow day)! Insider tip - you can make a bunch of pancakes when you have time and reheat them in the microwave or toaster when you are short on time. But yeah - if it were on me to provide breakfast, we'd start the day with granola bars and maybe cereal on a good day.
  7. I noticed her clutching the cup throughout the episode but never thought it was cover up a missing ring. It makes sense...

    That and calling Luke an asshole in the Unfiltered discussion. I could have kissed her (and I don't swing that way). I would have much preferred that Dr. Jessica get into this discussion with Keith and Kristine rather than the whole deadbeat father thing. Teach these people some pragmatic strategies for dealing with their differences. If Keith really cannot and will not cook - fine. He can do other stuff to get a meal on the table. But if Kristine takes on all the meal providing, Keith has to contribute to chores in other ways. There are hundreds of ways for couples to figure this stuff out and if they can't get there on their own, a good therapist can help them reach a compromise. But I guess talking through who's going to do the laundry, yard work (though they don't seem to have a yard), take out the garbage, cook, clean etc. isn't as sexy as a drunken father necessitating a 13-year old Keith taking on a designated driver role. I agree. I think Kate really, really wants to be married and on paper, Luke checks all her boxes. I think she is desperate for a turn-the-corner moment when she and Luke become as happy and (seemingly) compatible as Stephanie and AJ. The reality of Luke just isn't outweighing the allure of her fantasy so far. I also think that Luke's mom absolutely knows that this marriage is doomed. Either Luke or his mother said something about how close they are; I'm sure they have talked and he has her convinced that Kate is a drunken predator who jumps him at every opportunity.

    And then said they were "overcompensating for something." Good lord.

    They could food prep together for the week on Saturday or Sunday and also clean up together. Also, a crockpot would be a great friend for those two. Once a week, a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and maybe a salad from the salad bar. There are some easy solutions for these two. My husband and I are both in our late 40s and we often hold hands when we are out to dinner. He likes to sit next to me too, if we are seated at a four top. Couples find different ways to get and stay connected - I thought it was sweet that they did that - particularly as it became clear that Keith's father was going to deadbeat out on the dinner.

    I don’t know how she knows, but she knows that marriage is toast. Question is... does she know that her son is a manipulative dickwad?

    Jazmyne is just another mark to con artist Lizzie. Instead of promising romance, Lizzie promises a nurturing mother-daughter relationship. When there’s nothing in it for Lizzie anymore, she will abandon Jazmyne again.

    Michael - who also describes himself as having to imagine he was a secret agent on a mission to have sex with Sarah his first night out of jail so that he could maintain his relationship with his daughter. I hate him.

    Or the mirror - maybe it's a fun house mirror that shaves off 50 pounds?
