    S08.E11: My Little Secret

    These experts are experts in their specialized fields there are no experts in getting married at first sight. I think they are doing things to attempt to increase the success. They can't water board or subject candidates to lie detector tests all they can do is interview and fill out lengthy questionnaires. A guy like AJ probably seemed like a very outgoing gregarious person the life of the party...I doubt they saw the side we see now. I couldn't in good conscience hook someone up with AJ unless he got his anger issues resolved. For some on the show no matter what they say prior its dating at first sight, not marriage. Everything about married at first site is artificial not just the fact their spouse was picked, but the constant glare of having your marriage videod for TV and an artificial deadline to determine if you wish to stay married. Lastly this show is successful if people watch and consume products sold the % of successful marriages though nice is irrelevant. Its surprising any of these marriages succeed. How about living in sin at first sight and then see if they want to marry in eight weeks?

    S.08 E.09 One Month Down, Forever To Go

    I think whenever a situation where one spouse is clearly not being treated like a husband or wife, they should move out. If you stay in that situation more than likely you simply make it worse. I'm not saying to end the relationship but throttle back to dating since that's what its become. Luke would miss Kate more and reflect on the situation if she went home and only went out with Luke. Sometimes the bird in the bush is more desirable than the bird in the hand...

    S08.E07: Can I Trust You?

    The way that story dribbled out of his mouth with a dead pan affect it appeared he was too busy observing the effect it would have as he told it.

    S08.E07: Can I Trust You?

    I can't imagine the folks who sign up for this are thinking in terms of who gets what edits and what happened to someone else who was on the show. My perception is that Kate wants this to work, she wanted to be married and was willing to accept the person chosen for her. I question if Luke was even all that ready or anxious to get married in the first place. He hasn't accepted her as his wife. I don't think she's dumb for wanting to make this work...that's why she did this. I wouldn't blame her if she pulled the plug.

    S08.E05: 'Til Mud Do Us Part

    I think Stephanie has already been a saint putting up with his often boorish behavior and now she finds out he has anger issues. I hope he can seek help or overcome this area. Luke goes into the category of marriage upon approval is Molly (a miserable bride from Season 6) still available for a date? I think he was looking for exotic beauty as opposed to beautiful wholesome girl next door but this is what he signed up for.

    S07.E17: I Still Do?

    Psycho, They can't make marriages work and bear in mind the people who apply already have issues with finding a mate. Secondly what kind of person thinks someone can pick a mate for them? I wouldn't have thought where you go to gym is that relevant unless you're a gym rat. Too much is being made of Dave's gym friend I don't believe the result would be different, the constant up and downs were the downfall. When she did that she should have been expecting that it was the final nail in the coffin. She abandoned the marriage and did it behind his back. Had it been a great marriage up to this point and this was some crazy aberration counseling and reconciliation would be appropriate. I can't blame Dave for not wanting more of same and he has seen nothing else. I don't think she said he did something outrageous that led to this. She is impetuous and regretted her impetuous decision. Clearly Tristan had more to say on the issue but in the end it doesn't matter does anyone think its a marriage worth saving?

    S07.E17: I Still Do?

    I think Bobby and Danielle will have that rare marriage that in 15 years they'll only be closer. It would only be shocking if Mia and Tristan were still together but I don't think I believe her version of events about seeing pics of the ex on his phone and he was gloating about them. I believe Dave was willing to give it more time as he said but obviously her moving everything out was the final straw. I don't I fault him for not letting her move back in that would be just accepting of outlandish behavior. He's is making a wise decision in my opinion because life is short and almost certainly Dave and Amber would be a couple always on a roller coaster. The 80-20 rule applies to married it should be 80% peaceful, loving sensual and happy...20% trials, tribulations difficulties within and without. The 80% makes it worth it.

    S07.E16: All the Roads Lead to This

    I thought for sure Dave was going to launch into a preamble and finally give her the stink eye and say I just don't see a loving future for us. At the same time he wasn't all in, he said he wanted more time. They have their work cut out for them. I almost think Amber said yes because she wanted to see how Dave would respond more than she was really 100% sold.

    I thought it was a bit overboard myself...could she possibly have said sorry pal?

    S07.E14: Down To the Wire

    Yes they are! Being married or single and that makes a world of difference in anyone's life. There is a huge difference in how I live my life being married than if I were single. Ever notice that married couples soon leave their single friends behind? Its because they're not even in the same stratosphere anymore. If in fact that's what they do. Most singles in the USA enjoy the free and single life. There is a great amount of freedom to do as you please when single. However they're are benefits to having a family.

    S07.E14: Down To the Wire

    No you might be tremendously outgoing and give of your life in many other ways. Your life though is inherently different from someone who has a spouse and a few children. A person in that situation (unless their assholes) has to consider the effects of any decision and choice. In most cases a husband and wife have to come into agreement (or should) on any major decision but often even smaller ones. You also can't make any decision without considering the impact on your children unless you're a terrible parent. I lived the single life for a few years and I recall distinctly I only needed to consult with myself on any decisions and I only needed to get my approval.

    That car ride with Tristan and Mia was painful to watch. Initially they said they were enthusiastic about the mini-moon to make up for the abandoned honeymoon but they quickly got on the topic of what recently happened. It appeared to me that if Tristan didn't throw her out, he certainly helped her very enthusiastically. She didn't seem to protest too much or try to calm him down. Hard to say how much of that incident we got to see. Apparently she comes back and once again they attempt to make amends. I agree with Dave about one thing their problems run very deep to the very core of a relationship which is trust. Now I don't think they trust each other and you can't give your heart to someone you don't trust. In comparison Dave and Amber's issues are more superficial. They were supposed to spend the weekend discussing the attributes that lead the 'experts' to believe they had great potential.
