Why Did ‘Welcome to Plathville’ Stars Ethan and Olivia Plath Move to Tampa?

Shortly after their 2018 wedding, Olivia began butting heads with Ethan’s parents, Kim Plath and Barry Plath, as Olivia often rebelled against the Plath family’s conservative views which included no TV, no mobile phones and no sugar or soda. 

Apart from their family drama, Olivia was unhappy living in Ethan’s small hometown, but her husband enjoyed a country lifestyle. 

“I really want to live in a bigger city, I really want to be more stimulated,” Olivia told her husband during season 3. Ethan responded, “As long as I’m with you, I’m probably not ever going to come back to the environment that I like.”

While Olivia made the decision to move out of the couple’s marital home, by season 4, the couple had reconciled and moved to Tampa with Ethan’s sister Moriah Plath and Olivia’s brother Nathan.
