Kate

On last night’s episode of Married at First Sight, the couples still had a few days left in their honeymoon. Everything has been great with three of the couples. Then, there’s the exception of Luke Cuccurullo and Kate Sisk. She is confused by her husband. He appears to be kind and considerate, but they can’t seem to get over their lack of chemistry. On this episode, we will find out more about why Luke isn’t displaying any affection towards his wife

Keith Dewar surprises Kristine Killingsworth with a bike ride around the hotel. Poor Keith isn’t active at all and is tired after a half mile.  But I love that he wants to show his wife that he is making an effort. I think it’s great she makes him want to try different things.

Kate-during-awkward-conversation Married at First Sight

On last night’s episode of Married at First Sight, the couples went on their honeymoons. Here we go! This is when things start going downhill and getting REAL.  Everything is always polite during the wedding for the most part, but there is only so much you can hide on a vacation with someone.

The wedding night was the first time the couples were alone with one another. They don’t even know each other’s last names, but they slept in the same bed. Sigh! The rooms look more like a bed and breakfast than a nice hotel, but they did come stocked with condoms. All signs say at least two of the Married At First Sight couples use them before the end of the honeymoon.

Luke-knows-his -wife to-be Married at First Sight

On this week’s episode of Married at First Sight, we get to see the final two couples walk down the aisle. We found out last week that Luke Cuccurullo knows a friend of his new stranger wife, Kate Sisk. He also recognizes his wife to be and points it out to his friends. As she walks down the aisle, there is fear in his eyes. Could it be because he doesn’t like what he sees? Or does he know the friend more intimately than he should? Either way, I am hoping for the best for Kate. After her parents’ divorce, she has thrown caution to the wind for her own chance at love.

Interestingly enough, Luke immediately recognizes Kate as someone he has met before. Despite them meeting only three weeks ago, Kate doesn’t recognize him. I guess he wasn’t all that memorable. I can’t remember what I ate earlier today, but I can definitely remember faces. Nonetheless, they both seem to be attracted to one another as they read their contracts vows. Their words are beautiful, but I am really wondering how they can write them so easily for someone they don’t know. After the ceremony, they share a glass of champagne in a quiet area. It is more than obvious Luke is nervous and seems awkward. He reveals he has met Kate’s friend Megan, who is a guest at the wedding. Immediately, flags are raised in Kate’s mind. Then, she connects the dots. She met her now husband at a speed dating event with her friend, just a short time ago.

Last night’s season premiere of Married of First Sight begins with all of the participants being told that they are engaged! Surprise you are about to marry a complete stranger. Cue the nerves and instant bubble guts. I love this show, but I don’t think I could live with a stranger for eight weeks and call him my husband. The experts claim they use science and insight from previous seasons to make decisions on matches. Let’s hope this year, these singles fair better than some others in the past. But after viewing the trailer, this season looks like it’s going to be GOOD!!!!! There are definitely some strong personalities and explosions that happen as a result.

The couples have just found out they are engaged and now only have less than two week until their wedding day. Each person reveals the news to their family and let’s just say, most are shocked and worried to say the least. This is a short time to convince people close to you that you are not making a mistake. The participants each have to find their wedding attire, have their bachelor/bachelorette parties and convince their guests to show up to the shit show wedding. While shopping, everyone seems to be excited and in good spirits. It’s always fun until the reality of what they signed up for sets in, on the wedding day.

It’s that time again for one of my favorite shows, Married at First Sight.  If you are a true reality fan, who wouldn’t love watching a controversial experiment, where couples agree to get legally married to a stranger the moment they meet. Sign me up, I do!!!!  The couples are matched and counseled throughout the eight-week experiment by experts, sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz, psychologist Dr. Jessica Griffin and marriage counselor and leader of a church Pastor Calvin Roberson.

I have watched this show for years and it is always interesting to see the journey from meeting to living with a stranger within a short period of time. It’s like going on a never-ending first date. The new season will premiere on January 1st and will feature these four new Philadelphia based couples. Which couples will fall madly in love? Who will be running straight to the courthouse to file for a divorce after?  Will they each be attracted to their spouse? So many questions…. and only eight weeks for them to figure it out!

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.

Women-meeting-with-dr-jessica

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.

Shawniece_overwhelmed-at-home-married-at-first-sight

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.
