Ask any teenager, and he or she will tell you how tough life is: schoolwork, dating and dealing with pushy parents. But imagine having two kids while you're still in high school. Dr. Phil sits down with Corey and Kim, a troubled young couple, to see if their relationship can be saved.

 

 

Toxic Teens

Laurie says her 18-year-old son, Corey, is in a tumultuous relationship with his 20-year-old wife, Kim. The couple fell in love while barely out of junior high, but their crush quickly turned to chaos.

 

What's behind the couple's dramatic confrontations?

 



A Set Up? 

Laurie began taping Kim's conversations after Kim filed a protective order against Corey. She says Kim told the police Corey was threatening her with a knife, yet Kim was still begging her husband to return home a few hours later.

 

 

"She's literally blackmailing him."

 


 

Another Statistic?
