For the three couples of 'Married at First Sight' Season 12, the romance and love only seems to be blossoming and growing thus far, with all three couples gushing about their partners on-air and on social media. But, if the pandemic has taught us anything, it's that oftentimes, the flowery life celebrities portray of themselves online, sparking adoration and envy, is far from the truth. Turns out, that rule applies to Virginia Coombs and Erik Lake. 

One of Season 12's first couples to hit it off together was Coombs and Lake, seeing that they were all ready to get frisky at the altar at the time of their wedding A few explosive fights later and the couple still managed to stay together, making it past decision day, seeing that Lake even asked Coombs' father's permission to stay married to his daughter.

While the duo seemed happy enough on the Season 12 reunion episode and are even all set to join the cast of 'Married at First Sight: Couple's Cam,' along with Vincent Morales and Briana Myles, Lake and Coombs may not be living in wedded bliss like they're making fans believe.

As per a recent post on Reddit, which features posts by Instagram page @mafsfan, the couple is allegedly not living together, seeing that Lake is said to have 'Kicked Virginia out of his condo.' Coombs is also allegedly living in an apartment complex and Lake hasn't visited her the entire time. This has led to speculation regarding the couple's marriage, seeing that Redditors believe that they are only together for the cameras. "I feel like one of two things is going on: They’re not together but need to pretend to be until the final reunion episode airs for some contractual reason. (Edit: I forgot they’re on Couples Cam. Maybe they need to fake it until that storyline airs?)

They’re together in some capacity but they’re still incredibly volatile and are “taking it slow” or “dating each other” or (insert other pre-breakup euphemism here) instead of living like a real married couple. In other words, they’re basically done." wrote user tctuggers4011, to which multiple other fans agreed as well. 

The thread speculated that the couple possibly still hangs out together.  Their status remains unclear, seeing that around six days ago, Coombs posted a photo of herself with Lake on her Instagram, captioned -- "Couldn’t have done this with anyone but you, Erik 🖤 thanks for being my rock and loving me even on my worst days! I love you. I promise. 🤟🏼"



Lake on the other hand, save for a few group photos, has no photos of Coombs, adding more fuel to the fire. What do you think? Do you believe the couple are still together? Or are they faking it for the cameras? Looks like all eyes are now on the supposedly happy couple.
