'Married at First Sight': Michaela and Zack's explosive argument hints at trouble
The saying goes first comes love, then comes marriage... but for the couples of 'Married at Forst Sight', this order is reversed. And even though these couples find themselves married, it isn't a sure-shot thing that they will find love. It's not just about a leap of faith, it boils down to how compatible you are with your partner. For the cast of season 13, it's been a roller coaster of a journey.
While Rachel and Jose seem into each other, they aren't without issues. Bao and Johnny's constant communication style helps, but they, too, seem to have hit roadblocks. Brett and Ryan keep avoiding essential conversations, which might be a problem later. And then there is Myrla and Gil, who seem more like friends than husband and wife at this point. With all this chaos, all eyes are on Michaela and Zack, this season's fan favorites.

Michaela and Zack hit it off instantly, seeing that the couple couldn't stop flirting with each other at the altar and even joked about making babies. Their wedding reception went on smoothly, with Zack's dad asking Michaela for a father-daughter dance as her own father was no more.
The next day, even the family brunch was a resounding success, as both of them were welcomed into each other's families and got along well. Combined with the fact that they were the first couple to consummate their marriage, they seemed to be oh so in love. But, Zack getting Covid-19 on their honeymoon sent everything into a downward spiral. First, Michaela went back to Houston alone and now, having missed their honeymoon, the couple had to fast-forward to staying together. And it looks like their honeymoon phase is over, for sure. In a preview of this week's episode, the couple gets into an explosive argument as Pastor Cal tries to ease the tension. Zack left home in the morning without informing Michaela, which had her so livid that she packed up her things and stormed off.
She argued that he gives her so little information that she sees it as a cause for concern. On the other hand, Zack claims that he's dealt with this kind of behavior before and to him, it's a giant red flag to see her react the way she did. He even jokes about how he was curious as to what their first fight might be like. However, Michaela sees the entire issue as no laughing matter. Zack stated that he hates the kind of behavior she is displaying and for him, he is now unsure if they might even work out.
What do you think? Are Zack and Michaela going to crumbles under pressure and split up? Or will they be able to work through their differences? Sound off in the comments below! Catch 'Married at First Sight' Season 13 on Wednesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
