As decision day looms over the Married at First Sight couples, fan-favorite newlyweds Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre have a screaming match on their way home from a trip that was supposed to bring them closer.

The situation quickly escalates as Pierre tells his wife she ruined their weekend.

Though Jackson tries to explain she needs “togetherness” from him and has been “patient” with him “from day one,” that only makes Pierre even more heated.
“You can’t take me into your perspective ’cause you don’t know what the f— I’m going through,” he says. “I don’t tell you about it because I don’t trust you and I don’t trust you because it’s been seven weeks.”
After Jackson tells him she “can’t be in a marriage moving by myself,” Pierre mutters: “Maybe we shouldn’t be together then.”
The latest episode of Married at First Sight (produced by Kinetic Content) airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
