New York Daily News: Friday marked Jon and Kate Gosselin's 10th wedding anniversary, but the stars of TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus Eight" didn't seem to notice.

A decade after they were happily married and five years since the birth of their sextuplets, the couple is now rarely seen together -- and spent their diamond anniversary apart.

While the pair's off-camera marital woes, including accusations of infidelity on both sides, have become front page news over the past few months, the gossip has helped birth huge ratings.

The fifth season premiere of "Jon & Kate Plus Eight" drew 9.8 million viewers, nearly double the series' previous high.

The day began like any other for the reality stars, with the hit show's cameramen filming the couple's eight children playing with their nanny in the front yard of the family's Wernersville, Pa. mansion.

Kate surfaced around 2 p.m. to set up an outdoor barbeque for her brood, and even surprised the kids with a new bounce playhouse.

As for Jon, he hasn't been spotted near the Gosselin compound since Wednesday, the day after he was seen picking up the family's German Shepherds from a kennel in Delaware.

Neither Jon nor Kate's representatives have commented on whether the reality stars have any other plans to commemorate what could be their last anniversary as a couple.

I’ve been married fifteen years, and I think the idea is to have less trouble over time not the opposite. But then hubby and I could only have one kid, and we had to wait YEARS so we’re truly grateful. Also we were seriously affected by the economy and again found ourselves feeling grateful for what little we do have. But I doubt Jon and Kate have ever felt anything but stress from having too much, and then further stress when that proved boring and they both felt entitled, (and still feel entitled), to more.

Sarah Jane, I agree with you that Jon and Kate both feel entitled. In some articles I have read, they are saying that Jon and Kate have 10 million dollars, well how much of that money is their kids $? I would only hope that a trust fund will be set up for all 8 kids. I know it cost an enormous amount of money to raise children, but I do think they have enough, and that ending this show is the best answer. Just my opinion.

hI Sarah-Jane you are absolutely right. Look at the personalities, She is pulling (the wrong way) and he is justnot doing anything. This is what the Bible means when it says “Do not be unequally yoked”.
I think he needs to be a man and let it be known he is a partner and act like one not let her dominate.
ps I’m happily married 23 years I know it works

I think he is so use to having her get all the attention just like the episode with American was suppose to be about his new bike and it ended up about her. They need to try harder for the kids, but she needs to realize that he is her husband and not her rag doll. I LOVE THE SHOW!!

I just saw an ad for the show where Kate yells at Jon to come get ‘these disgusting things’ away. She was talking about the ‘outdoor’ dogs they got for ‘free’ from a breeder. Now I hate Kate for being mean and nasty to her husband, her kids, and the two innocent dogs that are obviously going to end up being homeless if Jon doesn’t get them. She is a monster. I have watched this show from the first year, and many, many reruns. It is incredible how awful Kate has become between even season 4, and now. She was rude and dismissive of the ‘Going Green” show where they got free solar panels, but tried to fawn and take over the whole show about Jon’s motor cycle interest and that show. She has just become the worst kind of media monster at the expense of her family. No wonder Jon and the kids are unhappy.

Marriage is hard enough, but add 6 kids all at once and cameras everywhere you go. Plus people betting on whether you going to get back together, or voting on your marriage. I would be anul if I had that many children and in front of the camera. In todays society, everyone thinks it is okay to have affairs and glorify the w(b)itch who would even mess with a married man that has children. We gave a TV show to the
w(b)itch that was with Pres. Clinton. What is this?? Everyone is responsible for their own actions.
