Kate: It doesn't matter where Jon and I are in our relationship. My kids still matter the most to me. We haven't really known where we were going, but we've been dealing with this for a long time—a slow progression that has not popped up one day. It's not been, like, a secret."

Jon: It just got worse and worse and worse. And with all the tabloids and all that, it just made it worse.

Kate: We can't go back now.  We can only go forward. And that's what we're gonna do. And we're gonna learn a lot going forward. And I know that we'll all come out of this on the other side, hopefully stronger, better, wiser.

Jon: People think that I've changed, and I have changed. But I'm now the person I know I am.

Kate: We've been dealing a long time with this.
