Sources say that Bryan Masche of the reality tv show, Raising Sextuplets, was blindsided by is wife filing separation papers Thursday, September 30, 2010 according to Limelife. Bryan Masche is the father of sextuplets that turned two this year.
Earlier in the year, Bryan and his wife, Jennifer, moved their family of eight from Arizona to Destin, Florida. Family and friends were devastated by the move. They could not imagine how the couple could watch all six toddlers without help or support. Their fears were realized when Jennifer Masche filed separation papers today.
Before moving to Florida, the family received help from both sets of grandparents, friends and other relatives on a daily basis. Jennifer “Jenny” worked forty plus hours per week as a nurse and Bryan had a desk job. The move to Florida meant that Jenny would have to take a cut in pay and Bryan would start a new career as a financial planner.
When they arrived in Florida, they found that Jenny would not be able to start her new job for a month and for some reason, Bryan would not yet be able to start his new business venture. This left the family stressed and strained over finances, but at least Bryan would be able to help with the kids. Or so one would think. As fans of the show found out, Bryan only helped with the kids when Jenny was as at work. He would dump all of the kids on her the moment she arrived home, adding to her stress. If Bryan did not help with the kids in Arizona, why would Jenny think he would help her in Florida?
Even though the Raising Sextuplets reality tv show has shown the world the sad details of this couples life including Bryan constantly calling his wife “retarded”, it is still sad to see Jenny file for separation.
No matter how difficult she thought life was with Bryan, it will be more difficult without him. Separation, divorce, splitting money up to pay for two households, new girlfriends, new boyfriends and everything else that it brings with it will not solve this couples problems.
Jenny will need to “put on the big girl panties” and keep going to marriage counseling with her husband, Bryan. Even though it may look hopeless, there is still time to turn things around before these two turn into another Kate and Jon Gosselin. Even though Bryan has not been perfect, he is nothing like Jon Gosselin and most likely the fans of the show will want to see them stay together.
