I can't wait to see what happens this week, but I wonder if there going to end up getting along again and sleeping in the same bedroom soon.

I know what you mean jasmar... lots of people did stupid things in their 20's and thank god everyone didnt write them off and turn their backs.

When you are in your 20's people can accept that you are young and making mistakes, when you are in your 40's people expect you to behave accordingly.
Danny needs to wake up and realize he isnt the KID anymore... he HAS KIDS... the time for it to be all about him and his "hang-ups" etc is over.... it's time for him to be the grown-up now and help his kids through adolescence, not the other way around.
Sheesh, most of the time his little daughter Isabelle acts more mature than he does.... that isnt fair.... she needs a dad and if Danny really loves his kids like he says he does he will get his "sex addiction" crap under control.
I mean think about it.... he is so interested in sex with other women that he is ready to let it ruin his life with his children. UGH! thats just disgusting

I agree Danny is really immature for his age and Gretchen's tired of it.

I totally agree. His wife fully needs to 1) decide what her boundaries are with him; 2) set them; and 3) abide by them. But his behavior also doesn't excuse her from her own responsibility to behave like a mature grownup. When she sets her boundaries, for example, she needs to decide what the point is: Is she really hoping to repair/restore the relationship? If so, she needs to have concrete criteria that he (and she) needs to meet before a, b, or c can happen. If not, she needs to stop enabling/stringing him along and cut the cord.

I've known quite a few people who have alientated basically everyone in their lives before having their lives changed by Christ - even in their 30s, 40s, and 60s (my dad!). That's why I'm uncomfortable slamming Danny too much - not because his behavior isn't deplorable, but because I hurt for the human dignity buried underneath.
Token Christian. If truth is relative, how do you know?

What did Danny do exactly to get kicked out of his house?

It was never really covered in specific. I try and cover it in that week's recap, (not that you have to read it!) and the extras from VH1 that week go into a bit more detail also. But no real specific reason is given per se. One thing they did say later is that Gretchen was just real tired and needed a break.

Oh, so she was just like sick and tired of Danny and the way he was acting.

Basically, that's what it seemed like, although I think the suddenness of it took him by surprise.

Well I hope Gretchen and Danny are able to have a happy holiday season with their kids at least and put their differences aside.
Somehow I have a bad feeling that the holidays will only add to their problems.... all the drinking and partying associated with the season not to mention the *kissing* tradition on New Years eve

Yeah, very true I'd say he'll party alot.
