According to International Business Times on Tuesday, it has been four weeks since the couples married at first sight. In only two more weeks, they will have to decide whether they want to stay married or not. It doesn’t look too promising for either couple.
TVRuckus reported that all the couples went to therapy. Psychologist Dr. Joseph Cilona sat down with each of the couples, individually and together, to discuss the problems they were facing. He advised all of them to communicate better.
Jessica Castro accused Ryan De Nino of putting her down and disrespecting her. Ryan admitted that he is very assertive toward his wife, and he uses negative words to hurt her. Dr. Cilona gave Jessica an assignment to write down the negative words that Ryan uses to hurt her and show them to him.
After talking with Jessica and Ryan, Dr. Cilona admitted to the camera that they definitely have their ups and downs, but he thinks they have what it takes to make it through. Most viewers don’t think so. They believe Jessica and Ryan should separate. Who wants a husband who has to be told what nasty things not to say to his wife?
Davina Kullar and Sean Varricchio met with Dr. Cilona because they, too, aren’t in an ideal marriage. Their problem is more about their living arrangement than about each other. However, Davina feels rejected by Sean because he leaves her often to go back to New Jersey while she is still in New York. Dr. Cilona recommended that they try to rearrange their work schedules and other appointments to spend more time together.
Jaclyn Methuen went on a business trip, and the whole time she was gone she heard from her husband Ryan Ranellone only once. When she returned home, they got into a fight about Ryan not reaching out to her while she was away. Jaclyn thinks Ryan isn’t invested in the marriage. She says if that’s the case, she doesn’t want to be invested either.
“And I’m gonna put a stop to whatever feelings I have that are growing because I don’t want to beg somebody to want to be with me.”
Ryan admitted to Dr. Cilona that he feels like he is abandoning his wife. In fact, Ryan said he thought he would be happier in the marriage. He said he feels trapped, and he misses his pre-marriage life. He admitted that he wasn’t open enough with Jaclyn, and they had taken a couple of steps backwards. Dr. Cilona gave the couple his usual advice. He told them to communicate more.
It seems like this set of newlyweds argue more and have more problems than the three couples in Season 1 of “Marriage at First Sight.” Viewers are tried of all the arguments. So far, the general opinion is that all three couples need to separate and start all over with someone else. Dr. Cilona had to come to the rescue of all three couples during the recent episode. At one point, the marriage is going to have to stand on its own without the show’s psychologist.
“Married at First Sight” Season 2 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on A&E and FYI. Hopefully, there will be more happy moments and fewer arguments in upcoming episodes.
