Mackenzie and Josh’s young love experiences major growing pains — a baby gives them responsibilities that they have trouble keeping up with. Check out the HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVE preview video of Mackenzie’s latest relationship woes, ahead of the Nov. 11 finale episode!
Mackenzie Douthit and Josh McKee struggle to open up communication — and Mackenzie’s getting tired of draining all of her energy trying to work out their relationship — even for the sake of their son Gannon. “Why can’t two people who love each other just communicate?” Mackenzie wonders, while opening up to her friend on Teen Mom 3. “Why does it have to be difficult?”

There would be a lot less stress in Mackenzie and Josh’s relationship if they were just free to enjoy each other’s company with no distractions. “If it were just you and Josh?” Mackenzie’s friend mused, “And no one had to work for money, no one had to take care of a baby and no one had to go to school …?” things would be a lot easier.
Unfortunately, the pair have a very grown-up relationship, even though they are so young: and it comes with responsibilities, which get in the way of the two just being in love.

“I believe things will get better,” Mackenzie shares. “I hope. And if they don’t, then I give up. Because I’ve done everything.”
Mackenzie reveals that she wants to go back to counseling with Josh to work on their communication — and she says that the only time they talk is when they’re talking about Josh’s riding career.
“Stupid young love,” Mackenzie laments, while realizing that she has to be more mature now. “Now it’s, ‘there’s a baby — time to grow up’ love.”
There’s no growing up without some growing pains — but will Mackenzie feel the hard work is worth the payoff?
The Teen Mom 3 season finale airs Monday, Nov. 11 at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
