Kail Lowry and Javi Marroquin went through some difficult times during the filming of the fifth season of "Teen Mom 2."

After welcoming their first child together (Lowry also has an older son, Isaac, 4, from a previous relationship), Lowry and Marroquin struggled to get their footing as newlywed parents, and on next week's episode, fans will see them reach a low point in their relationship.

“Being married is not what I thought it would be at all,” Lowry admitted in an Aug. 16 sneak peek at "Teen Mom 2," via Radar Online. “It’s a lot of compromise, a lot of things I’m not used to. I’m trying to get through it the best I can, because I do love him and stuff.”

Being married isn't easy, and since Lowry is so young, as is her husband, they likely struggle more than the average couple. Often, when couples have children at a young age, they feel they are mature enough to make a decision to get married -- but at times, it is something they know nothing about and something that often ends in divorce.

Look at Leah Calvert, Lowry's "Teen Mom 2" co-star. She got married to Corey Simms after having her twins, Ali and Aleeah, and split just six months later. While she may have felt that getting married was the right choice at the time, it clearly wasn't a good decision in the long run and led to more drama between them.

As the clip continued, Lowry opened up about Marroquin's struggles with being a new dad. Although Marroquin adjusted quite well to being a step dad, having an infant at home was a different story.

“He’s still learning with Lincoln,” she confessed. “Lincoln will cry and and he just gets frustrated.”

Still, despite their issues, Lowry and Marroquin are determined to make things work between them and not considering a divorce.

"Divorce is not an option for us,” Lowry told Life & Style on July 10. “I made my vows to him that I would fight for my marriage."
