Amy's attitude ruins this show for me. She's an angry bitter woman and seems desperately unhappy with her life now that the children have grown.
I know previously someone posted that if Matt was an alcoholic maybe that was why Amy was so unkind to him.
Personally, I would probably become an alcoholic is I was married to Amy! just kidding..... but it must take it's toll on Matt to have his wife constantly belittling him. Matt's not perfect by any means but Amy has become a shrew....except to her precious perfect children. And what's up w/the ignoring of Jacob so much?
