A second fan commented: “Isn’t his mom sick maybe its stress.”
A third chimed in: “He’s always been a skinny dude but he does look especially thin here.”
Several fans brought up Bar’s past struggles, which include addiction issues.
It wasn’t all kindness and concern, unfortunately.
Teen Mom 2 fans weighed in on Ashley’s decision to stay married to Bar despite their ups and downs.
“Ashley wasting her best years on Bar,” one critic commented.
During the show, Ashley and Bar are asked about their relationship.
After watching back scenes from the season, during which the duo considered divorcing, the pair share an update.
Ashley tells Dr. Drew and Nessa: “Everyone that I grew up around was married.
“My grandparents have been married for, like, 50 years. My mom has been married to my dad for like 20-something years and so I think I had this idea of what marriage was because I saw them married and I saw how they worked and so my first instinct was to run.
“‘I’m out. I’m not about to be in a f**ked up marriage.”
She breaks down as she confesses: “And then when we went to TMFR, Coach B said some things to me that hit me in a different way and some things about me that I didn’t realize.
“And when we went home, I really wanted to make those changes because I love Bar with all my heart and the way that I act sometimes may not come across that way because I’m dealing with my own s**t.”
The mom of one adds: “I’ve been through a lot in my life and so to protect myself I’ve developed a language.
“I can back you up without putting my hands on you. That’s how I protect myself and he’s not the person I need to protect myself from.”
Asked what the issues in their relationship are, Ashley says: “I just want him to be passionate about something.”
She confesses it was “maybe coming across in a way that wasn’t helpful.”
Ashley and Bar confirmed their marriage on Teen Mom Family Reunion.
Fans had been speculating up to that point, but the couple had been quiet.
Co-stars were quick to notice a ring on Ashley’s wedding ring finger after the ladies arrived on the set.
Cheyenne Floyd sat down with her to get to the bottom of things, asking: “Let me look at your hand.
Ashley responds: “It’s what the f**k ever,” which seemed to confuse Cheyenne who asked, “You guys came together. Are you not together?”
Ashley reveals: “We’re married,” which further shocked Cheyenne.
She went on to explain: “We’re married but not together,” adding that she “decided this.”
“I have a lot of anger built up with Bar. I speak one language, he speaks another and we don’t hear each other,” Ashley said on the show, which flashed to an old Teen Mom episode featuring a blowup between them.
Although Ashley claimed to be broken up with her husband, she said in a confessional that she’s hopeful they can “get some tools to be able to speak to each other in the same language.”
She recounted some of Bar’s struggles, telling Cheyenne: “He had an ankle monitor and that put him on the straight and narrow. He was on that for, like, a year and some change.
“During that time, I saw so many positive things that’s when we got married. Now that it’s off, it’s just complacent.”
Cheyenne advised: “I feel like you guys have been through so much together because you started so young and I don’t want you to use that as, like, a crutch or reason to say.
“This is nothing against him.”
Ashley went on to explain what she would need from Bar, the father of her only daughter, before she would get back together with him.
She said: “In order for me to put the ring back on, I need to see him do a few things.
