It's been a week since we learned about Amber Portwood's fiancé's issues on Teen Mom. The two are still together and fans want to know why.

So maybe Amber Portwood's fiancé Matt Baier has seven kids? On last week's Teen Mom, Gary, Amber's former fiancé and the father of her daughter Leah, after stepping into the bowels of the Internet, came up with "proof" that Matt has several outstanding child support cases against him. Matt didn't so much deny it as he devolved into angry silence (except for when he was screaming at the producers to get out of "his" house). It wouldn't have been a surprise to find out this week that he and Amber were done, but that's not what happened. Instead, Amber spent a lot of Monday night's new episode being super mad at Gary for bringing this up in the first place and also at the women who allege that Matt is the father of their children, and not a lot of (read: any) time being angry at Matt, who's been lying to her for a pretty long time.

On Twitter, fans had no qualms about expressing their feelings about the situation.
