Drastically different religious beliefs 

While expressing how faith is important to him, but he wouldn’t enforce it on his partner, Matt told Entertainment Tonight, “My views are my own and I would never force that on somebody, especially with those views being different within my family.” He mentioned his brother briefly when he said, “My brother and I have completely different religious beliefs, and I don't love him any less. I would never want that to be something that kept me from being with somebody."

Matt has been vocal about his childhood struggles, the majority of them involve his upbringing in a single-parent household as a biracial kid. In the next episode, Patty is seen sobbing as Matt’s parenting is brought up. It remains to be seen what John has to say about his younger brother making the commitment of marriage to one of the two suitresses, Michelle Young and Rachael Kirkconnell.
