As she happily shared the news, a photo of the couple appeared on screen that showed her smiling at him as his back faced the camera. “He is amazing, just an amazing man of God,” Lydia told the viewers.
“We met through mutual friends,” she explained. “It’s sweeter than I could have asked for or thought of or dreamed of, and it’s more beautiful than I could have imagined.

“After considerable thought and discussion, we have decided to end our marriage,” Kim and Barry said in a statement to People at the time. “While this was not an easy decision, we know it’s the best choice for both of us. We have been through many highs and lows in our 24 years of marriage and as we navigate this new chapter in our lives, we will coparent our amazing children.”
She further discussed their split during a June 2022 episode. “Barry and I have decided to live separately for a while,” the matriarch said in a confessional. “The easiest way to do that right now is whenever one of our rental properties is vacant, I pack a bag and I go and I stay there. I’m unpacking and kind of getting settled in for a couple of days to stay at the farm, which is where we raised all of our children, and I guess I’m feeling, you know, like I never thought it would be like this. It’s very different from what I ever, how I ever thought it would be. It’s just, it’s a time of a lot of change right now and I’m not sure exactly what that’s gonna look like.”
By the end of season 5, both Barry and Kim said that they were at peace with their divorce.
“There is another chapter that comes once you get through the process of grieving the loss of a relationship. It does come to an end,” Barry said. “You do make it through. You do come out OK. You’re like, ‘OK, if I can survive that and I can actually mature through it, I can actually come out better understanding relationships hopefully for the next time around, if there ever is one.’”
