'Married At First Sight': Jessica joins Covid-19 unit without Austin's consent, fans say she controls marriage
Another user pointed out that even though Austin may have taken his time to use the magical four-letter word, his concern showed how much he cared for Jessica
Jessica Studer and Austin Hurd are one of the most adored couples of the recently-aired 'Married At First Sight' Season 10 and might we add, the only one that stayed together without having too many issues until decision day and beyond. In the spin-off show, 'Married At First Sight: Couples' Cam,' the pair dive into bigger problems that come with being married and balancing work and family life. It's especially difficult to achieve that stability because, like the rest of the world, they are tackling the Covid-19 crisis.
Since Jessica is a nurse, she will have to be working and with the new promotion, her job requires being in charge of a Covid-19 special unit. This has Austin worried. Although he was appreciative of the fact that his wife was moving up the ranks, he was concerned if supervising an ICU was such a good idea. Jessica did acknowledge Austin's point of view but she believes that it's a job she signed up for and has to do it, regardless of the circumstances. However, she did assure Austin of the fact that the hospital will arrange for protective and precautionary measures so that the staff is safe and healthy.
In the OG show, the couple has had their share of misunderstandings but always found a way to come out of it. Jessica and Austin are good together, and despite minor differences, they make genuine efforts to understand each other. Therefore, the issue of Austin not entirely sure of Jessica being in charge of a Covid-19 unit should settle over a few more conversations. Meanwhile, fans thought Jessica was being extremely "controlling" and totally not appreciative of Austin's thoughts.
"Love Austin's hair cut! So Jess got all fired up about Austin traveling and how she had no say, and NOW she just comes to him to say, I AM doing this! No marital discussion? Just her doing it. My the tables turned! AND Austin was so gracious, and compassionate for her well-being. I bet she's 'running' this marriage--controlling. IMHO," a fan commented, while another shared: "She needs to be more empathic toward his feelings. She needs to say, 'thank you for caring and worrying about me. I know you love me'."
Another user pointed out that even though Austin may have taken his time to use the magical four-letter word (love), his concern showed how much he cared for Jessica. "Like you seemed annoyed that he was concerned for your safety, instead of feeling cared for. He wasn't telling you not to do it, he was just expressing his worry, that should matter to you," the viewer further added.
