'MAFS' Season 15: Are Nate and Stacia still happily married? Fans want marriage counselling for 'petty' couple
Fans don't see Stacia being happy with Nate as she seems too demanding in their marriage
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA: Stacia Karcher and Nate Barnes delivered 'Married at First Sight' fans some of the hottest scenes in the Lifetime reality series' history. However, when the pair was put on the hot seat during the Reunion to address the still-present challenges in their marriage, many were skeptical of their joyful union.
They had a great time, thanks to their hot shower and Stacia's vibrating undergarments. They even got matching tattoos, and they have no regrets about their marriage or their tattoos. Nate and Stacia are still together, although they aren't living together. While some fans believe this arrangement is preferable because it is pretty soon for the couple to be fully committed to each other, others view it as a major red flag.
Nate and Stacia are living in between their homes, which Nate considers to be a "healthier" condition. He lives downtown, while she resides in the San Diego suburbs, so the couple is attempting to strike a balance by spending a few weeks at each location. Stacia is unconcerned with where they live as long as they are together. Meanwhile, Nate has finally told Stacia, "I love you." "My heart is opening up, and I’m loving you more every single day," Nate exclaims to his wife.
He still tries to live up to Stacia's standards. "I do feel satisfied in moments," the wife admits. "I just want it consistently, and like he said, I can be a moving target because I expect a lot." "I just want it consistently, and like he said, I can be a moving target because I expect a lot," Stacia confesses she is still controlling at times, so the two are still working on communication and compromising. Still, he says that her desires are always shifting, making it impossible to satisfy them all.
They aren't exactly sure what they want to do with their lives. She wants babies within a year, but Nate believes they're at least a couple of years away and wants to strengthen their "emotional connection."
Can they overcome the tension? Even though most 'MAFS' fans want this couple to succeed, many are apprehensive. Calling Stacia 'desperate,' a viewer wrote, "Stacia…now girl…you can’t be desperate for love and STILL be picky. I mean you practically forced an “I love you” outta him. What do you expect??" Fans also think the couple is putting on a show just for the cameras: "Stacia and Nate are acting for the cameras. If she could turn her whole entire back to him on that chair she would." A fan also wrote how Stacia will never be satisfied with Nate: "Nate will never be able to satisfy Stacia. She will keep picking at everything that he does." One viewer had advice for Stacia that read: "There are so few men that will fully satisfy a woman of Stacia’s intelligence and wealth. She’s a wonderful lady but so set in her ways and maintains almost unattainable expectations. Compromise is key sis."

Seeing the couple address their marital problem, a fan suggested: "nate and stacia still need marriage counseling lmao they being petty right now." Some fans also belive the couple isn't as happy as they project themselves to be: "I feel like Nate and Stacia are not as happy as they want us to believe." Fueling the rumors of them separating post the Reunion taping, a fan tweeted: "Stacia is still putting down Nate. I’m glad the word on the streets is that they are not together since the reunion show. Nate was smart to keep his own house and he moved back into it. He looks like a mother-load is lifted of his shoulders." While another fan wrote: "I don’t blame Nate for keeping his apartment, atleast the first year. I love Stacia but she seems like the kick you out type."
