What is she thinking? Cody Knapek, 26, fears his wife Danielle DeGroot, 30, doesn’t truly want their marriage to work on Thursday’s Married at First Sight
Did they or didn’t they? Fans are wondering if the couple finally consummated their marriage after their romantic date on last week’s episode
Danielle explains that next weekend Cody wants her to attend a wedding with him, but the nuptials are on the same day as her childhood friend Brittany’s 30th birthday.
The two had known they were double booked since their honeymoon, but Cody has yet to give her the details about the wedding.
‘I have been hoping he would tell me what time the wedding was at so we could figure out if we could do both, and two weeks later, we still haven’t determined what the plan is,’ she gripes. ‘I am a little bit concerned.’
Cody says he will text his friend immediately, and Danielle gives him a somewhat sarcastic ‘thanks’.
Things only get worse from there when Cody realizes the ceremony is at 5:30 and the reception is right after.
Seriously? Danielle is annoyed that Cody waited until the last minute to find out the details of a wedding they are supposed to go to because she also has a friend’s birthday party that day
‘It’s probably too tight to do both,’ he says nervously.
Danielle, who is clearly annoyed, responds: ‘That’s what I was worried about.’
‘It just sucks that I kind of dropped the ball,’ Cody tells the camera, admitting that this was something Danielle asked him to figure out on their honeymoon.
‘We got so busy that I forgot to do it, and then when we got back I got so busy with work and moving in that I forgot to do it a couple of times too,’ he says.
After noticing how Danielle ‘got really mad and disappointed’, Cody says her reaction is making him worried about their marriage.
Set up for failure? Cody insists that he is really trying even though he ‘dropped the ball’, but he he can’t help but ask Danielle if a part of her doesn’t want their marriage to work out
Losing that spark: The clip ends before Danielle can answer, but she has already admitted to not feeling as attracted to him anymore
Danielle makes it a point to tell Cody that it is important to her to show up when she says she is going to be somewhere, but he doesn’t really get why she is so angry.
‘Sometimes I feel like we vibe well, and sometimes I don’t get whats going on,’ he tells her.
Danielle points out that she doesn’t want to have to keep asking him to do things ‘like 1,000 times’, but he thinks she might be exaggerating.
‘Yeah, I mean I dropped the ball on that one,’ he says. ‘I am just trying to think about other stuff. Do you have any other example?’
Best day ever! Nate Duhon, 25, is thrilled when his wife Sheila Downs surprises him by legally changing her last name
All in: The two have only been married a month, but Sheila has already changed her driver’s license
Danielle thinks the issue they are dealing with now in one that is ‘kind of a big deal’, and she tells the camera that she often feels like they are dancing in circled when they communicate with each other.
‘I am trying to stay positive and open because I am married; I am not just dating someone,’ she says. ‘But I am not feeling that attraction to my husband like I would hope. So that’s really affecting me at that point.’
Cody can sense her ambivalence towards him, and at the end of the clip, he questions whether she really wants their marriage to work.
‘I am really trying, I really am. I want this to work so bad,’ he says. ‘Does part of you not want it work?’
Next step in their marriage: ‘I am officially a Duhon,’ she tells him proudly
Issues: Although Nate is over the moon, his mother still disproves of their union and he fears he will have to choose between his mother and his wife
Meanwhile, Nate Duhon, 25, is ecstatic that his wife Sheila Downs, 30, surprised him by legally changing her last name.
‘I am officially a Duhon,’ she tells him proudly, and he notes that ‘this is the start of something beautiful’.
However, its not all rainbows and sunshine for them either, as Nate’s mom is still against their union.
In another clip, she warns him that she doesn’t him to feel as though he is going to regret his decision, which angers him.
‘I don’t want to have to choose between my wife and my mom,’ he says.
