"I don't want to find you at 25, 28, 30 years old, living in some ridiculous abusive relationship, three kids hanging on your legs, you never finished high school, you never got to college, which means you have a lot of growing up to do in a short period of time," he told Alexandra.
"When I first heard these things that Dr. Phil was talking about, I thought 'That's not me!'" says Erin. But she soon realized that she "avoids looking at the unpleasant things" about herself.

"I would have truly confronted him about that if my family wasn't around me, because I thought that was totally uncalled for," said Martin, who wants Alexandra to keep the baby.
Erin claims that Martin's harsh words to Katherine made things worse. He told her, "If you weren't so mean to her, and if you didn't tell her you hated her so much, she wouldn't have left. It's all your fault."
