The fifth of ten episodes of “Married at First Sight” aired on FYI television on Tuesday night. On previous episodes the couples got married after they met at the alter, went on a honeymoon, and moved in together. This week the three couple were seen trying to adjust to everyday life. Monet and Vaughn seem to be having the hardest time dealing with their busy schedules and other conflicts.
Situations have come up for all the couples, but two of the couples are dealing with them more successfully than Monet and Vaughn, the only couple who consummated their marriage on their wedding night. They agree they have bonded sexually, but emotionally they are having a big problem. After negotiating where they would live, Vaughn moved in with Monet in New York, but he kept his apartment in New Jersey. He tells Monet he will be staying there a few nights during the week so he can be closer to work. They have gotten into a lot of arguments including the one they had on their honeymoon.
Jamie and Doug who got off to the slowest start are beginning to bond. The family met to play baseball, and Jamie was expected to be there, but at the last minute she couldn’t get someone to take her shift at work. Her mother-in-law suspected Jamie just didn’t want to be there. She said on the show that she didn’t trust Jamie.
Cortney and Jason are working things out with their hectic schedules. Initially, their schedules were not synchronized. Jason was at home when Cortney was working; so he left the lyrics of their song on a sheet of paper taped to the mirror and a note on a bottle of wine in the refrigerator for his new wife to relax when she got home. He then changed his schedule so he could be home when she was home. They together marked their schedules on a calendar.
With five more episodes left, this writer believes Cortney and Jason will stay together. Jamie and Doug might stay together after giving it great consideration. Monet and Vaughn will probably decide to divorce by the time the series ends unless they can work things out better than the way they are going now.
The Hollywood Reporter announced that “Married at First Sight” has already been renewed for a second second with three new couples in eleven more episodes in 2015. That is because this season that’s set to air its finale on Sept. 9 averaged 661,000 viewers during its most recent episode. That was the highest total for the season for this new show that some still think is controversy and makes a mockery out of marriage.
