SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA: Krysten Collins and Mitch Silverstein are ready to tell whether they'll stay together or split after meeting at the altar on 'Married at First Sight' and spending eight weeks as newlyweds. While some fans saw Mitch's handling of the matter as insightful, others saw him as the poster boy for women to avoid.

It's decision time. In the Season 15 finale of 'MAFS,' the San Diego couple meets with the experts to discuss their relationship. "So here we are at a very consequential day. This has been a major life transition for you," Dr Pepper Schwartz says to the newlyweds. "Talk about the good of it, the bad of it, and even the ugly."

Both Dr Pepper and Pastor Cal believe they have great potential. They do, however, have some troubles, much of which stem from Mitch's revelation during the honeymoon that he was not attracted to his wife. Dr Pepper is also concerned that Mitch is unable to compromise and that Krysten is very eager to please him. Mitch reveals that his biggest regret in his marriage is something he said over the honeymoon. He's learned over the last eight weeks that he was more walled off to love than he anticipated and that by opening up and being vulnerable, he can be a better person. Pastor Cal and Krysten are both thrilled with his growth. Krysten admires Mitch for many reasons, including his love of the environment and his desire to adapt.

An obviously tense Mitch claims that making this decision was difficult. He claims he wants to honor their connection, but he "know[s] that’s not enough." He believes that Krysten deserves someone who is madly in love with her, and that he is not such a person. No, says Mitch. Krysten, who is crying, expresses the same sentiment. She wants to say yes, but he's correct, and she deserves more. "I’m choosing myself today," she adds. "I want a divorce." They both express a desire to stay friends and be a part of one other's life in the future.

"This could potentially not be the end of Krysten and Mitch," Krysten says. And she says she'll leave a door open when they meet up with the other couples the next day. Mitch, on the other hand, promptly shuts her down. He makes it apparent that he does not see them having a romantic future, and by the conclusion of the episode, it appears that they may have difficulty staying friends.

A fan shared their opinion on how early Mitch already knew what he wanted when he went on his work trip: "Sitting back reflecting… Mitch knew when he went on the work trip that it was more of a no on dday. That’s why he didn’t wear the ring and have to do a bunch of explaining to his coworkers." While stanning Krysten, a fan wrote: "Krysten still held his hand, spoke about him kindly, allowed compassion to take place but still stood her ground & didn’t settle. We have no choice but to stan." Some fans seemed pissed that Mitch got to say no first to his marriage to Krysten: "I’m so pissed they gave Mitch the opportunity to say no first. Krysten deserved to be the one to tell him he wasn’t worthy of her." A few fans also slammed Krysten for not picking up hints from Mitch: "How many more ways and times does Mitch have to tell Krysten he doesn’t like her? He’s literally said it all season and she’s like “I’ll hold the door ajar”. Girl if you don’t change the damn locks and go get a man to love you."

Calling Mitch a 'warning' a fan wrote: "Mitch is a prime example - a warning rather - that women should up their standards, because there are Mitch's out and about in the world that believe they have options." They further slammed the experts for praising Mitch instead of Krysten: "It’s really sickening to see how Pastor Cal & Dr. Pepper are praising Mitch for his “growth”. Mitch has been a straight a$$. They need to praise Krysten for even staying with him…" Some fans while defending Mitch wrote: "why are the girls so mad that Mitch doesn’t want to be with Krysten?? he was straight up. he doesn’t want to be with he. at all. get over it." Reminding how there's less possibility of a friendship post divorce, a fan wrote: "Mitch talking s**t now. Bit Krysten gotta realize that a divorce doesn’t mean they can be friends."
