I have to admit, I have a guilty pleasure! Not until this season have I been interested in Married at First Sight on Lifetime. Until now, I’ve always thought the premise was horrible. I mean, most of us who have dated are still bewildered once we get married. Ever had that “who the heck did I marry” feeling after a few years?
It’s certain with these couples and I just couldn’t bear to watch a train wreck. Then, I watched. The previews were too good to pass up and boy am I glad that I started watching! This season only has three couples- not sure about previous seasons, though.
Shawniece and Jephte caught my attention from the beginning. I was curious to see how he would adapt to being married to such a beautiful woman. In fact, I thought they’d have the easiest time. To my chagrin, they are having the most difficult time of all! Each week, I’m incredulous as I watch their interaction. It got so bad one episode, I leaned over to my wife and said: “you know it’s bad if I’m talking about him!”
Shawniece cried and cried again and I couldn’t bear it. All the hurt she experienced and I just couldn’t bear it. Then I remembered, “hey, it’s television!” Now, I anxiously await each week’s episode in hopes of Shawniece and Jephte finally warming up to each other. Hopefully this is the week! If not, I don’t know how much more I can take! Get over your fear of ‘strangers’ and love that beautiful woman, Jephte!!
You can join me tonight and see if things heat up between the couple when the new episode premieres at 9pm EST/8 pm CST on Lifetime Television.
