Episode 3030: Megan and Mike
Mike and Megan were one of the most desperate couples I've ever counselled on the show. They had so many problems: first of all there was a 10-plus year age difference between the two, they were parenting a toddler, had a new baby with numerous medical problems, and they both came from difficult backgrounds.
I think that Mike's peeve "My wife is naked on the Internet" was one of the most shocking that we've had in the history of Newlywed Nearly Dead. And there was a lot that went on behind the scenes; for example, before I went through the evidence, I made sure that any naked images of Megan were blurred before I saw them. The last thing I wanted was to make Mike and Megan uncomfortable in any way. And, in all reality, I didn't care what the pictures looked like, what I really cared about was the problems they caused.
First, Mike had given his permission for Megan to be on an x-rated web site, as a result of an ultimatum she had given him. Megan told Mike she either wanted a dog or to be a Suicide Girl. Mike did not want a dog, so he agreed that Megan could be on a pornographic web site. Yikes.
Also, Megan was using the site as a way to keep in touch with the world, make friends, and cope with being a young mother of two. She found support in the other girls on the site and she felt like she belonged to a community.
Although Megan told me she'd go off the site immediately, she didn't, but five months later she finally did.
