Their relationship has been a virtual train wreck (and a literal car wreck) so far, but Return To Amish star Carmela Raber has moved back to Florida with plans to try to make her marriage to Jeremiah work despite his recent arrest for domestic violence.
In case you missed it, Carmela and Jeremiah were involved in a very serious automobile accident in Colorado last week, and, in a Periscope video documenting the damage done to her car, Carmela revealed that the two were headed to Florida together. She later took to Facebook to head off speculation and elaborate on exactly what the living situation would be between the two:
I just want to say before it gets twisted that yes im going to Florida… No Jeremiah will not be staying in the same household with me. We have 2 properties, his parents live a few miles away.
For the time being we will live separately to make sure we both get the help we need.
I love Jeremiah and I got married for the long haul and yes he has issues and I have issues as well it takes two people to either fight or get along.
We both made the decision to fight for our relationship.
No one deserves to get mistreated and Jeremiah has definitely admitted to needing the help and most importantly he is putting actions behind it.
I need help as well I’m not perfect either I have things I need to work on to help our relationship succeed.
As long as Jeremiah is putting the effort to better himself for our children and our family, I’m not giving up..
I’m not jumping back into the same house but the ultimate goal is to get back together and have the family we dreamed of..
I’m hoping that people will pray for us to succeed in our dream.. We don’t want attention.. Money.. We just want a family we never had and we want all of our kids to be proud of us.
As far as her children go, Carmela said in her Periscope video that they are in the state of Washington, where they are attending school.
As we’ve stated many times in the past, we wish Carmela the best. She’s had a tough hand dealt to her, having been raised in an end-times religious cult with a misogynist prophet. To take on the burden of being married to Jeremiah…that’s A LOT! (I assume at this point in his therapy that Jeremiah would be the first to agree.)
As of now, it’s unclear if there will be another season of Return To Amish, or even a Reunion show for the current season–so stay tuned to Starcasm for updates on how Jermela is doing.
Speaking of Return To Amish, be sure to watch the season finale this Sunday at 8/7c on TLC!
