Break-Ups & New Friends


Here are two new Bringing Up Bates webisodes that we know you all will enjoy.

In the first video, Lawson Bates explains the uncanny way that he met Emily Ann Roberts, a singer from The Voice who is featured on Lawson's upcoming album. In the second, Nathan Bates shares the terms of his break-up with Ashley Salyer, and Gil and Kelly Bates reveal surprising details of their own pre-marriage relationship.

    1. Lol I guess that's good to know! Before your post I was just wondering if they'd end up as a couple. 😇

  3. I found the video about Nathan and Ashley very interesting: I like their mature approach.

  4. Before anyone speculates anything, Lawson is not courting Emily. I stalked her Instagram and she has a boyfriend.

  5. I am sorry to hear of Nathan and Ashleys separation, but only those two know if it is God's will for them to be together. Emily seems like a lovely person, I am hoping that if Lawson and her share an attraction they will explore a closer friendship! I love watching the Bates family go through life with a solid eye on God. I am a sinner myself but I find so much encouragement in the way their family loves and lives. God Bless!

    1. I thought there were some differences, especially geographic preferences, which might seem trivial, but it's a very important cosideration). However, regardless of public opinion, God's will be done.

  8. I hope UP doesn't drag this out, the whole "will they or won't they" thing with Nathan and Ashley. They've decided to break up and they need time to heal, and if they ever did get back together then they need to be able to do so without any outside pressure...either way it seems wrong to turn speculation into a storyline

  9. I wonder when they broke up. Ashley was at the Grad Party at the end of April or beginning of May. And her birthday on May 2nd was mentioned in a post. Did they break up in this recently aired episode (which was probably filmed in Feb/Mar) but have since gotten back together?

    1. They decided to stay friends and keep in touch, so it's not strange that they saw each other a couple of times in family contests. I wouldn't read anything more into it.

    2. Also Nathan spend the Memorial Day weekend with Ashley and her family.

  11. Awww maybe Nathan and Ashley will pull a Kelly and Gil and get back together!

  12. I hope Nathan and Ashley will reconcile. They are a cute couple, but they are right to be seeking the Lord's will.

    1. They don't have to reconcile: they didn't fight. Which makes the break even more definitive in my opinion: you can get through a fight with forgiveness, if you love each other. On the contrary, if you separate because you simply don't see a future together, it's definitive.

  13. Is that all, Lawson????? :)

  14. She seams like a sweety! I trust that ashley and nathan wouldn't have made that decision unless they thought it was best.

  15. Love is sacrifice, to look after the good of the other. When marriage is viewed as permanent, that love grows in view of sacrifice also. You are all a clear example of this, Mr. and Mrs. Bates. What a legacy you are passing on!

  16. Unbelievable that Kelly and Gil broke up many times before they were married. I've always thought of a breakup as a definite sign that you should NOT be together, but this couple has certainly proven that to be wrong. Maybe Nathan and Ashley will get back together, if they continue to try to work things out.

    1. I guess they were more little fights than serious breakups...

  17. I'd actually be interested in the differences between Gil and Kellys early relationship. I would have never guessed.

  18. My brother had a breakup 15 years ago...she left him for 6 months. They reunited, married, and now after 13 years of marriage, she's left him again, apparently she still disliked the things in him that caused her to break up in 2001 (he loves sports, and he's an accountant, not an artist like her). Now there are two little kids caught in the middle. Sometimes, you have to pay attention to WHY you're breaking up.

    1. Yeah, and you should also not stay together just because the other one is a good person, or a good catch, while you're still young: chances are that sooner or later you'll break up anyway. As your brother's story shows.

  19. I find it surprising Lawson would have Emily Ann do a couple songs with him. She is on YouTube doing a song with lyrics about one-night stands. Yikes! Couldn't he find someone who sings gospel without this mixture she has with the world? Please re-consider.

    1. Judgemental much? Shes a sweet christian girl who can sing. That's extremely rude to say and ridiculous to think that the Bates should only hang out with people exactly like them.

  20. He should of asked his sister Carlin.

  21. So what is the status with Nathan and Ashley? As far as the differences go it isn't like it's a surprise or anything. They live far apart and very different places so to get to the courting part AND then say oops seems like she was leading him along. If your aren't sure don't go into courting.. I'm just saying. But the question remains, are they or aren't they together now? I hope I don't have to ask this 3x before it gets posted

    1. So are Ashley and Nathan still together or aren't they?

  22. In the subsequent shows since Valentines Day and this episode, there has been no mention of Ashley? What is her status in the Bates family now? Also why is that girl who helps out Kelly always in every episode? Does she live with them? Who is she? Lilly and Ellie, can you answer these questions? Thank you

    1. There have been no further announcements about Ashley since the break-up. The girl who frequently appears in photos/episodes is Courtney, a friend who helps around the house.

      Blessings,
      Lily and Ellie
