Tammy Slaton’s marriage is just beginning, while her sister Amy Slaton’s is coming to an end on 1000-lb Sisters. The sisters are in completely different stages of their lives as they are headed in opposite directions. While it’s too soon to tell how things will turn out, it looks like Tammy’s marriage will possibly outlast Amy’s.
Aside from Tammy hitting her weight loss goals and receiving life-changing surgery, another unexpected moment took place on 1000-lb Sisters when she married Caleb Willingham. After spending years in unhealthy relationships, she finally found someone she could picture a future with. Just as equally surprising, this season also witnessed the breakdown of Amy and Michael Halterman’s marriage as they struggled to find a balanced partnership in parenting their two sons. Now that the sisters are on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of their relationships and their future, it looks like Tammy’s marriage may have the potential to go the distance.
5 1000-Lb Sisters’ Tammy Slaton & Caleb Willingham Are Compatible
Even though Tammy and Caleb’s wedding seemed rushed, there is no denying that the couple is compatible in many ways. The 1000-lb Sisters star found solidarity and support in Caleb as they understood the challenges the other was facing to get healthy and take back control of their life. The two met each other at the rehab facility where they were residing, and soon after, they exchanged their vows in the same place. Of course, Tammy and Caleb are still in the honeymoon phase of their relationship, but it looks like they could be the perfect match.
Compared to her sister, Amy, it seems on paper that the outcome should be the complete opposite. While Tammy and Caleb jumped into an engagement after only three weeks, Amy and Michael have been together for years. Although the two just tied the knot in 2019, they have a long history with one another. Despite knowing each other on such a deep level, it hasn’t changed the fact that they are headed for divorce. Their situation proves that time isn’t necessarily an elemental factor in a relationship guaranteeing its success, and perhaps Amy and Michael aren’t a good match after all.
4 1000-Lb Sisters’ Tammy Slaton & Caleb Willingham Support Each Other
Since Caleb and Tammy met at the rehab facility, they are aware of the hard work it takes to stay dedicated and committed to their goals. In fact, Caleb admitted to Tammy that she is the reason he attended Windsor Lane Rehabilitation Center. After hearing about the 1000-lb Sisters star’s success and everything she had accomplished, it motivated him to believe he could make those same positive changes for himself. During Tammy’s inspirational transformation, Caleb continued to encourage and support her along the way.
Unfortunately, Amy hasn’t had that same level of support from Michael on their parenthood journey. Now that the couple has two sons together, Amy often feels like she is caring for them on her own. She feels overwhelmed with emotions as she tries her best to juggle maintaining their home, giving their children her undivided attention, and putting the focus back on her weight loss journey. In the times that Amy has needed Michael the most recently, he has been sitting on the sidelines instead of putting in any effort to handle his share of the responsibilities and give her the encouragement and help she needs.
3 1000-Lb Sisters’ Tammy Slaton & Caleb Willingham Are In A Healthy Place
Tammy hasn’t just made incredible strides in terms of her physical health, but her mental health has improved significantly as well. In previous seasons of 1000-lb Sisters, the reality star was open about the difficulty she faced mentally and emotionally. She had been to therapy in the past without much success, but this season Tammy’s personality completely shifted in a positive direction. The fact that she has been able to communicate her feelings and go beyond the surface of what was troubling her has made an invaluable impact on her life and the future of her marriage.
Sadly, in this season of 1000-lb Sisters, Amy has been emotionally suffering, carrying the weight of all the unending responsibilities on her shoulders. She has had a difficult time admitting how much she’s struggling and even explained that growing up, they never learned how to properly express their feelings or emotions. Dealing with unresolved issues and a laundry list of growing marital problems has only added to the couple’s hardships, leading to the point of no return in their marriage.
2 1000-Lb Sisters’ Tammy Slaton’s Past Has Strengthened Her Bond To Caleb
Before she met Caleb, Tammy was in some dangerous and concerning relationships. In her search for love, she often looked in all the wrong places, finding men online that weren’t interested in much beyond a short-term romance. Unfortunately, Tammy didn’t recognize that her turbulent relationships were putting her life on the line as they didn’t care about her health or goal of losing weight. Her boyfriends often encouraged her to indulge in junk food and give into her comforting cravings, oblivious to the damage they were causing. These experiences, however, taught her a lesson in the end, understanding her worth and realizing that she deserved better.
Amy’s love life, in comparison, has been less chaotic as she has been in a steady relationship with Michael for a long time. She didn’t have any significant past relationships to show her what to expect from a husband and to learn what she shouldn’t have to put up with. On 1000-lb Sisters, Amy has been at a loss attempting to keep everything afloat and leaning on her family for support. Michael has failed to see the importance of being a team player in their marriage and the impact it’s having on Amy and their children.
1 1000-Lb Sisters’ Tammy Slaton & Caleb Willingham Want The Same Future
Caleb shocked everyone on 1000-lb Sisters when he revealed his plans for his future with Tammy. Even though they have only been together for a short while, he already wants to spend forever with her, which includes having children. Before meeting Caleb, Tammy never really knew if having kids would be in the cards for her, but since she married her best friend, her thoughts on the subject have changed entirely. She loves being an aunt, and being a mother may not be such a far-fetched idea after all. The fact that they are on the same page makes all the difference.
Amy, on the other hand, couldn’t think of anything better than becoming a mom. Although Michael shared in her excitement when their sons, Gage and Glenn Halterman, were born, he hasn’t been as helpful with that same level of eagerness. This has caused irreparable damage in their relationship resulting in growing frustration and broken trust and ultimately ending with the two going their separate ways on 1000-lb Sisters.
