Who would have thought that a couple who met for the first time at the altar would actually end up in a lasting relationship? Experts matched Ashley Petta and Anthony D’Amico on Season 5 of Married at First Sight, which aired in 2017. After that, they appeared in the spin-off series Married At First Sight: Happily Ever After.
The show documented their progress since the original series and something pretty special: Ashley’s pregnancy with their first child. In fact, all three couples from that season were expecting daughters and got to document their pregnancy. Now, it’s official: Ashley and Anthony are proud parents to a baby girl.
On this week’s episode of Married at First Sight- Happily Ever After, the couples meet with the experts after being counseled for the last eight weeks. They want to check in with each couple to see if they are truly on the road to happily ever after. I am more interested in what happened when the cameras stopped rolling and these couples weren’t under the supervision of the experts. Hopefully, there will be a tell-all special to reveal what happened behind the scenes.
Jephte Pierre finally decides to step up to the plate and help Shawniece Jackson with some of the household duties. He decides to cook… badly, but he still gets an A for effort. You can tell the kitchen is a foreign place for him. Even so, Shawnieceappreciated the gesture. The end result is stuffed peppers that actually look pretty good.
On this week’s episode of Married at First Sight- Happily Ever After, the couples meet with the experts in Boston for a marriage retreat. I’m sure everyone is just dying to reveal all of their marriage issues in a group setting and rehash old wounds… NOT. They will also get the chance to meet Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre’s new baby, Laura. They are the center of attention because the other two couples have a lot of questions about labor and adjusting to life with a newborn. After last week’s episode where Shawniece flipped out Jephte for not helping with household duties, I am sure they have plenty of advice for the group.
Before the Married at First Sight couples meet with the experts, they get lunch to check in with one another. The last time they met, all of the wives were pregnant. This is everyone’s first time meeting one of the new babies. Danielle Bergman is surprised that Shawniece is so brave to bring her baby out so early. She already made it clear she isn’t bringing her baby out until a few months after birth. Nonetheless, everyone fawns over baby Laura and enjoys the quiet before the storm with the experts.
On this week’s episode of Married at First Sight- Happily Ever After, will the already fragile marriage between Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre become broken to the point of no return? The couple recently welcomed home their first child and things are not going well. Shawniece is completely overwhelmed and is desperately seeking help and attention from her husband. At this point, I am not sure if Jephte cares to be a husband or is just going through the motions because of his child. One thing is for sure, struggling through a marriage while learning to care for your first child is rough. Shawniece may have reached her breaking point.
Shawniece is starting to resent Jephte who is away at work most of the day and doesn’t do much when he returns. While trying to have a conversation about her stress, Jephte seems totally unsympathetic towards her plight.
