'MAFS' Season 14: Michael worries over Jasmina's lack of an emotional connection
With decision day approaching, the lack of chemistry between the couple might be their end
Fast-tracking a relationship isn't easy, but for the couples on 'Married At First Sight', that's the only option they have. As each couple is a stranger at the start of their married life, it all boils down to how well they can get to know each other while figuring out if they can truly build a life together.
Season 14 has seen plenty of chaos so far, from Lindsey and Mark's never-ending saga, Noi and Steve's social media dilemma and Katina and Olajuwon's different outlooks on marriage. And of course, there is Michael and Jasmina's passive aggressive arguments that threatened to tear them apart.
For Michael and Jasmina, the couple have dealt with their fair share of drama and have certainly come a long way since they said 'I Do'. While the wedding itself was smooth sailing with the couple getting along reasonably well, the honeymoon was a whole different story. It is here that their communication heavily broke down, with Michael getting upset over the tiniest things and Jasmine stating that he then tended to talk at her, not to her.
This seemed to be a running trend between the two, with Jasmina questioning if she could trust Michael after he lied about having female roommates. However, Michael wasn't the only one with the issues, seeing that Jasmina kept demanding he be vulnerable around her while she didn't reciprocate the same energy. But, out of all the couples who met with the experts, they were the only two who worked on the feedback given to them and were ultimately able to move past their communication barrier. Going to their respective childhood homes helped strengthen their bonds, seeing that they both had extremely tough childhoods.
And while the couple is much stronger than they started out, they still seem to be on the fence about saying yes on decision day, seeing that the spark is still missing. While they have worked on communication, Jasmina has mentioned that a physical bond is lacking, seeing that there is no real chemistry between them. While she hoped for a moment where the spark would come naturally, they haven't made much progress. With decision day closing in, it looks like they now have to make a tough call about what lies ahead for them. Jasmina admitted that while she feels connected to him, the emotions are missing, putting Michael in a tough spot, as his wife clearly doesn't feel romantically towards him.
What do you think? Will Jasmine and Michael call it quits over lack of chemistry? Will they find a way to make things work? Sound off below and tell us about your opinions.
