You know what they say, be careful what you wish before because you just might get it. All throughout his wedding reception, Chris found a way to incorporate the topic of sex into more than a few conversations. On more than one occasion, he mentioned that he wanted to have a honeymoon baby. God must have been listening because while on his honeymoon, he learned that he was having a baby. Too bad it wasn’t his new wife that got pregnant—well not that we know of. Instead, it was his ex-fiancee from a couple of months ago. The fall out of all of this was the focal point of last night’s episode. So let’s dive in.
Erik and Virginia
I like Erik and Virginia as a couple. They’re just different enough to balance one another out. But right now they’re on their honeymoon. I don’t know if Virginia’s drinking habits follow her outside of celebratory situations and into real life or this is her in certain environments. Erik can keep up with her here but it will be interesting to see how they both behave in the real world and if their chemistry holds ups.
They had a bit of an interesting discussion about male friends in the pool. Erik was very passionate and probably did a bit too much communicating it. But unless Virginia has a guy bestie, who’s always around, it might not be that big of a deal.
What I didn’t like is that these two seem to be in some type of competition with the other couples to see whose relationship is progressing the fastest and the farthest. First of all, it’s not a game show. And if it were, they would not be winning.
Clara and Ryan
These two are getting along far better than I thought they would. Although Clara is clearly the more talkative one in the relationship, Ryan doesn’t seem to mind what she has to say. That’s a good sign. He seemed happy for the fact that there hadn’t been awkward silences between the two of them.
But Clara is not just talking to her herself talk–she’s also asking questions that need answers. She wondered if Ryan wanted to raise his children in the church. He said yes and that gave her pause because she doesn’t want religion forced on her children like it was forced on her. Valid point.
There’s a way to introduce your children to church without forcing it one them. When they’re old enough, you can let them decide why they do or don’t want to be a part anymore. While Ryan’s parents seem very churchy, he doesn’t strike me as fanatical. I think they’ll be able to find a compromise.
Though they haven’t lived together yet, Clara seems sure that Ryan is not ready to live with anyone because he’s never done it before and, from past experience, she knows how taxing it can be to bring someone new into your space.
Haley and Jake
What an odd pairing. I know that quite a few people have already thrown in the towel on Haley and Jake. But I’m not so sure. Jake is a rare bird for sure but last night, especially when they were having dinner together, Haley seemed like she was into it. It could work.
Vincent and Briana
I know Erik and Virginia think they got it. But they don’t hold a candle to Vincent and Briana, bayyybeee. Survey says it’s not even close. I just watch the two of them completely giddy. It’s natural, it’s flirty and it’s cute as all hell.
These two consummated their marriage because after what happened with Vincent’s grandmother they just felt close to one another. He said he wanted sex to happen organically and it seems like it did. And it definitely made them closer. The way Vincent was rubbing his feet on Briana’s under the table, in the sand? I live!
Also I love Vincent’s cheesy, little flirty lines. Like he had been warned, he told Briana that she was bossy. And I thought…where is this going. But then he finished it with, “But you get away with it because you treat me right.”
Then at dinner, he told her they’re more than husband and wife, they’re a match made in heaven.
Cannot take it.
I agree with Briana and Vincent. Paige needs to get out of this bullshit ass marriage, and let him deal with his bm#MAFS

Briana and Vincent on Paige and Chris
I know if nothing else, Briana and Vincent appreciate each other a helluva lot more watching all the foolishness Paige and Chris are going through. They lucked out but Paige deserved so much better than that and I’m happy Briana said as much.
You have to handle this situation delicately, while Briana told producers that she was hoping and praying that Paige leaves Chris. She told Paige that she needs to be selfish and think about what she wants for her own life and decide if Chris is the man who can give that to her.
And what she did say was, “Before he found out he was getting married he wasn’t thinking about his future wife.” And that’s important. Even now that’s he’s married, Chris is not thinking about Paige. But more on that later.
It’s always best practice to stay out of married people’s business but I know everything inside of her was screaming, “RUN!”
I’m finally catching up on the part of #mafs that I missed. This block head mf Chris just told Paige he had devastating news but it doesn’t matter 🤦🏾♀️. Smh, if that’s true, why would you bring it up #MarriedAtFirstSight

Every sticky situation Chris finds himself in–because of his own foolishness, her consistently makes the wrong decision. When he learned that his ex was pregnant–instead of taking a beat, collecting himself and being man enough to deliver the news to Paige, he tried to act like it wasn’t happening. He literally said, “It doesn’t matter.” And then later, “You ready to go to the pool.” WHAT?!
And then after too many reindeer games, he asks her, “So you want to talk about it?” Bruh, are you here with us? Of course I want to talk about the secret that’s going to affect our marriage! I cannot understand the way he tries to resolve conflict. It’s always a day late and dollar short.
@mafs This is the worst season ever. Why did #Chris say that he had to tell (the ex) he was married, then laugh? y'all all need to be fired. #bullcrapshow #MarriedAtFirstSight pic.twitter.com/4rktrhzeSd

Did anyone else feel that Chris’ energy speaking to Paige about this baby was way off? It’s like he wasn’t fully processing what had transpired. Or maybe he did. There are some who believe he wanted an out from this marriage. I’m not sure. Maybe Chris wants an out but also wants to look like a good guy on camera. And it’s just too late for all of that.
When he laughed as he told Paige that he told his ex he was married…c’mon now! Later, he told Paige that she would come before his child. Yea…aight. Chris is not putting Paige before the MAFS producers so good luck.
The only thing he said that whole night that made any type of sense was that Paige deserved better.
Everybody riding with Paige.

Telling the group
You see what I mean about blowing opportunities? Chris told everyone that he had some disturbing news. Bruh…how is your child going to feel watching that sh*t in 10 years?! Smh. Thankfully, Paige was there to correct him.
Still, his childish ways emerged again when he saw how happy the other couples were in their new marriages. He wasn’t happy and Paige wasn’t happy so he felt bad. Well, what is the reason y’all aren’t happy, Chris?! It’s like the accountability part of his brain is not turning over.
He got mad at the very fair questions Erik and Virginia were asking him. You can’t say it’s none of your business when you’re on a reality tv show and you brought it to the group.
But the kicker for me was when he got mad that the couples were supporting Paige and not him. Sad. And this is the man who said he was going to put Paige above everyone else. Puhhleeeze.
When she first learned that Chris was expecting a child, it seemed that Paige was on her way out. She said she’d been with a man who had kids before and she knew that’s now how she wanted to cultivate a marriage. She said, if this is what four days looks like, what is going to happen in 40…or in four years. I thought she had it. But sadly, her opinion started to shift as the day passed. By the time she sat down to dinner with Chris, it was clear she had a new attitude and was ready to fight for her marriage.

God is not in this union
At dinner, Paige asked Chris the right questions. Does he still have feelings? Does the ex think they’ll get back together? Chris said “it doesn’t matter,” which wouldn’t have been enough for me. But when Chris said as his wife he’d put her first, she was here for it. Although his actions have already proven he’s incapable.
But God is very important to Paige and she keeps seeing His hand in situations where He just might be pointing to the exit.
