    Brody And Kaitlynn Jenner Had Been Hinting At Marriage Problems For Months Before Splitting

    The Hills: New Beginnings has been full of arguments between the pair, especially over whether or not to have children.

    On Friday, Brody Jenner and wife Kaitlynn Carter Jenner announced that they'd decided to separate one year after tying the knot in a lavish Indonesian ceremony.

    It's since been reported that the pair, who have been together since 2014, never obtained a marriage license in the US after the nuptials and so weren't legally married.

    But anyone who's been watching The Hills reboot, New Beginnings, will know that Brody and Kaitlynn's rocky relationship has been a central storyline across the first six episodes. So, here are all of the scenes which have pointed to struggles in their marriage so far.

    The issues began in the first trailer for the show, which was released in June, and saw the pair butting heads over Brody apparently telling somebody that they had an open relationship.

    Then, in the first episode of the season, Brody opened up about his marriage for the first time, revealing that their relationship was still full of "ups and downs" even after tying the knot.

    In another conversation with Justin Bobby later in the episode, Brody said that marriage was "tough" and "a lot of hard work".

    And when he was asked during a testimonial whether he "missed his single days", Brody responded: "Is that a trick question?"

    One of the biggest talking points of the first episode, though, was the aftermath of an argument between Brody and Kaitlynn which had escalated so badly that he ended up sleeping in his car. The next morning, he branded her a "psychopath" and a "nightmare".

    "You don't think that's, like, the rudest thing you could say?" Kaitylnn responded, "You know I hate it when you say stuff like that."

    Brody then asked Kaitlynn why she'd got so angry with him for coming home late.

    Visibly irritated, Brody responded: "Oh my god, you're giving me anxiety, please stop. You knew where I was, come on. Who cares? Next time, if I’m gonna come back late and I’m trying to sleep, you don’t need to come in and yell at me. I went to the truck to go and sleep because I was terrified of you."

    Brody then moved the conversation to the topic of kids, asking Kaitlynn how they'd handle these types of situations with children in the house, saying he was "terrified" of becoming a father.

    And in his testimonial, Brody said he was convinced that the main reason Kaitlynn wanted kids was so that he would "change" his lifestyle.

    The subject of kids has continued to crop up across all six episodes that have aired so far. During one conversation with Audrina Patridge, Kaitlynn said Brody has already warned her that she'll be "doing all of the work" when they have kids.

    In further testimonials, Brody and Kaitlynn revealed that his strained relationship with Caitlyn Jenner was a contributing factor to his "pessimism" over marriage and children.

    And another conversation — in which Kaitlynn broached the subject of Brody's "promise" to her that they'd start having kids when she turned 30 — didn't go particularly smoothly either.

    "I'm not in a complete rush to do it," Brody responded, "I'm really enjoying my life at the moment without the responsibility of a child. I've seen a pattern of this around town — babies complicating things and then two years later, divorce."

    Kaitlynn went on: "That was a big part of us getting married — being on the same page about having kids. And that's really important to me, and you know that. So I just want you to respect the promise you made me."

    But in a final testimonial, Brody reiterated that he was concerned kids would "complicate" the relationship and said he'd be "content" with not having children.

    The Hills: New Beginnings continues tonight on MTV.
