When Beth asks John for his blessing to marry Rip, his first question is, “Do you love him?” But his second question is the real heart of everything, “Does he make you happy?” That’s parenting.
Throughout their relationship, John has taught Tate to pee outside, given him constant sugar, and let him do whatever he wanted. All while giving Kayce and Monica a break and making Tate feel loved. Nothing wrong with that.
When John Dutton was battling cancer, he broke one of his cardinal rules and asked Beth not to sell the ranch. These two are ruthless, but of course she agreed because he was vulnerable. Nice trick, John.
No matter what wild ideas the Duttons have when it comes to parenting, they’ve always managed to find their way back to each other. Watch the new season of Yellowstone on Paramount+ on Sundays to see what they’ll come up with next.
