Stars of Welcome to Plathville Moriah and Micah Plath are celebrating how much has changed since moving out of their parents’ house. Moriah and Micah are two of Kim and Barry Plath’s children that have rebelled against their family’s strict rules. Moriah, who’s been the most eager to get out of her family home throughout the show, went against her parents’ conservative values by dyeing her hair and getting a tattoo. Micah looked to ignore his parents’ rule of not seeing his younger siblings without supervision — in fear he’d inspire them to rebel against the system — when he posted a photo of him with his siblings at an amusement park. He also began a modeling career and poses shirtless on his social media.
Moriah began dating her current boyfriend, Max Kallschmidt, before her parents approved of her seeing somebody. In a teaser for the new season, Moriah is even seen partaking in some PDA at a family dinner with Max. She hand-feeds him a biscuit and kisses him at the table, which doesn’t seem like something Kim and Barry would be too fond of considering their conservative outlook. However, it looks like Kim and Barry have come around to Max and are happy and supportive of their daughter’s relationship.
Moriah and Micah are happy to be free of their parents’ restraints and are having a great time living their new lives. “Can I just say everything [has changed]?” Moriah told Fox News. “I’m pretty sure we don’t do anything that we used to do and we do everything that we weren’t able to do.” After moving out, the siblings moved in together. “I can literally do whatever I want, speak the way I want, hang out with whoever I want, watch whatever I want to watch. I mean, before we were completely restricted on what we could watch on TV. Basically, we’re in 100% freedom since living on our own,” Micah said.
The siblings also talked about their dating life. While Micah is killing it in the modeling world, he’s also dating for the first time outside of Kim and Barry’s reach. “I did not have any opportunity to date when I was living with my parents so moving out opened a huge door and it has been a really good time but also kind of hard because I haven’t found someone yet,” Micah said, adding on that he’s not in a rush. Moriah also gushed about having the “best experience” dating Max. The two went on to say they would never follow in their parents’ footsteps of having nine children, mentioning there’s no way to give that many children the individual time they need. Overall, they want their younger siblings to be able to get out of the family house as they did and be able to “experience life.“
Even though it’s hard to break away from the norm you’ve lived in your whole life, Moriah and Micah do a great job at modeling free will for their younger siblings. It makes sense that growing up in such a restrictive household would lead to rebellion since they were deprived of so many things normal kids have. Both Moriah and Micah seem a lot happier now that they’re not living in Kim and Barry’s house. It’s also nice for fans of Welcome to Plathville to see that they still have a relationship with their parents, this may not have been the case if they never had the courage to leave the nest.
