Sonia & Nick

mafs4-9snSonia wants to sit and talk out the fight with Nick but neither of them know what to say. She apologized for walking away. He admitted his communication problems. The next day, Nick planned a dinner date wine tasting. It seems that is something he likes to do. One of the dogs is in a crate in the room while they sleep. He stills pay attention to the dog. Dr. Rachel visits and talks to them separately. It’s all about increasing their intimacy. Their homework is a truth or dare game and a class. It was actually a tantric massage session but she didn’t want to scare them. This massage session is entertaining.

 

Lillian & Tom

mafs4-9ltLillian left the house without telling him. He called, sent texts, and nothing. He thinks she is still upset about their conversation about kids. She needs to get surgery on her shoulder for a recent injury. She all upset. Lillian is staying in bed and Dr. Rachel comes to visit. Tom has to tell her he will be there for her through all this. As a gift, Dr. Rachel gave them body paint. As if this couple needs that kind of thing. One of their exercises is to sit with their foreheads touching for 7 min? Again, do they need that?

 

Heather & Derek

Of course, Heather wants a divorce. That’s all of that. Why are they still talking to them?

Sonia & Nick

mafs4-8snPoor Sonia leaves her bed in the middle of the night because the dogs are bothering her. She doesn’t think Nick is communicating with her. Dr. Pepper meets with them. Sonia thinks that the marriage (rating a 5) is just ok so far. She has to tell him about her feelings. Duh. He rates the marriage as an 8 or 9. He says the dogs will not be on the bed anymore. We’ll see. Nick’s mom is coming over to cook Italian food. She gives a little insight into Nick. The boyfriend told Nick he needs to talk to Sonia constantly. Nick needs his mom to get him to talk. They are doing their touching homework in a hammock. He said he’s not in love with her and it is concerns her that he said something so serious. This will probably be a theme for them.

 

Lillian & Tom

mafs4-8ltLillian’s sister wants her to babysit for her. That leads to a conversation with Tom about kids. He isn’t sure if he wants kids and he definitely doesn’t want to think about after being together for 2 weeks. Dr. Pepper has to talk to them about the child issues. Tom doesn’t like the word dealbreaker. Eww, I wouldn’t want to babysit some random kid. Now the sister is there. She laughed about the bus. Tom referred to children as little terrorists, but he likes Lillian’s niece (I guess it is his niece as well now).

 

Heather & Derek

Each of them talk to a friend about their marriage problems. Heather isn’t even communicating with Derek. The show is stretching this out. I don’t really care if they stay married or not. Get rid of them both. Since their story was so useless, no picture for them.

Agenda / Comments

The honeymoon is over. It’s time to figure out how and where to live. Plus, they talk about their finances.

 

Sonia & Nick

mafs4-7snThey both are happy to be on the trend of being friends. After the honeymoon, they got to their separate apartments. Sonia is afraid of dogs. So she is not looking forward to staying at Nick’s place and seeing them. She wants to know what they are thinking. She told a story on how her friend as a child was scratched up in the face by a large dog. I think that is enough to be afraid. Nick is so into his dogs and not really paying attention to her. They decided to find a new place together. Wow, he has properties and she has $40k+ in debt.

 

Lillian & Tom

mafs4-7ltSo every room they go to they have to kiss. She likes the bus but I doubt she wants to live in it. They make about the same amount. Lillian’s light and hot water went out in the bus. He decided that they need to live in a new place together. Lillian is cooking for Tom and she is nervous. She is making him wash his feet before going to bed with her. Yes, post-nuptial agreement. That is exactly what he should do and asking it while in the bus he lives in.

 

Heather & Derek

mafs4-7hdEveryone is happier than Heather and Derek. He’s not happy that she got drunk at the last dinner. Both of them are done with the marriage at this point. Oh great, emergency meeting with the pastor. Heather is not happy and Derek said she should leave then and do them both a favor. She needs to go home by herself to decide if she wants to stay married to him. The show cut them out for the rest of the episode while others were looking for a place to live.

Agenda / Comments
It’s the end of their honeymoons.

 

Sonia & Nick

mafs4-6snSonia doesn’t know if Nick is attracted to her. She also wants to get to know him more. What makes you feel fulfilled? That is one of the questions asked. Nick has been in 3 serious relationships and he feels he learn from each one. ATV racing and she won so she gets a dinner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lillian & Tom

mafs4-6ltThey continue to be all over each other. Horseback riding in the water is a thing. Still no mention of the bus. That is the most interesting part about them. Tom hopes that his marriage lasts a lifetime.

 

 

 

 

Heather & Derek

mafs4-6hdAll of a sudden, they are doing surfing lessons like they were not crazy the day before. Uh oh, the surfing instructor held her hand to lead her somewhere. Derek noticed of course. Cave exploring and I’m guessing questions for them to answer. She left him at the bottom of the cave and he is not happy. No pillow talk because they just can’t stand each other. Six days in and they are calling Pastor Cal. At the last dinner, they drink a lot.

Agenda / Comments

They are doing the Pillow Talk homework. It’s just more questions they have to talk about what they like about each other I’m guessing.

 

Sonia & Nick

mafs4-5snSonia wants to wait on the consummation. They go paddle boarding and Sonia is happy to see him with his shirt off. She was afraid he couldn’t carry her when they got married. It’s horseback riding now. They are doing well. Nick seems happy in the quiet type of way. Wow the Pillow Talk turned into a slight back and forth slight conflict. The t-shirt Nick is wearing in the picture is great.

 

 

Lillian & Tom

Of course, they consummatemafs4-5ltd their marriage first. I’m not convinced it wasn’t the first night they met. They probably don’t go 2 minutes without touching. Tom tried to prep her to tell her about the bus. He said something about people being superficial by buying things. She got offended because she is a realtor and feels the need to look nice and have a nice car for her job. He had to back track and assure her he didn’t mean her.

 

Heather & Derek

Heather is concernemafs4-5hdd about his smoking and gambling. Dr. Pepper said when people date they pick at little things to sabotage their relationships. She is upset about his messiness. I think this will blow up nicely. She didn’t like that he didn’t want to put his stuff in a drawer. He likes to live out of the suitcase. Bike riding and Heather is riding so fast. He just wanted to spend time with her. Derek can’t believe how upset she is about him smoking. That is her fault. If she wanted to a nonsmoker she should have said that. Twitter seems to think he is smoking marijuana. That makes more sense with her being so concerned. He said she has been drinking all day each day. She thinks it is different. Derek is trying to be calm and talk out their issues. But, Heather said the same thing. He’s not going with that. Heather doesn’t know that she was the one that ruined the honeymoon. She called herself classy and having morals. If you look at the picture you will see the 187 in the background. Hopefully they won’t kill each other while the show is airing.

Agenda / Comments

I love how people are saying how similar the couples are when they just knew them just as long as they have known each other. I still don’t understand this post-wedding brunch. You just saw them last night. Dr. Rachel DeAlto meets with couples before they go on the honeymoon with some homework. Pillow talk questions.

 

Sonia & Nick

mafs4-4snNick is happy with Sonia. Sonia didn’t want to be carried into the room like the other brides. He seemed a little disappointed. He mentioned in the interview that maybe it was because of the tightness of the dress. Honeymoon = Dominican Republic and her family is from Costa Rica. I assume that makes it less interesting to her but she seems happy. As a new wife, Sonia volunteered to iron his shirt. Uh oh, she called him metro because he has experience ironing for his past job in a restaurant. She quickly came back with how he is manly. Dr. DeAlto asks them to look at each other and say “you are my husband/wife”. Both of them struggled with it. She is very emotional and she has been hurt in the past. Dr. DeAlto is afraid Sonia will become overwhelmed and shut down. Nick wonders (and asks her) how she can love horses and be afraid of dogs.

 

Lillian & Tom

mafs4-4ltBoth the couple and their family think they are perfect for each other. Jamaica for the honeymoon. Lillian feels that it is a fairy tale so far. They are basically on top of each other. Wow, he is plotting how to tell her about him living in a bus. He knows it is a problem otherwise he would say it in a proud way. I wouldn’t want to live in a bus. It doesn’t seem as safe as a locked door.

 

 

Heather & Derek

Heathermafs4-4hd likes him but isn’t feeling the initial chemistry with him. Puerto Rico for the honeymoon. At least Derek has the opportunity to travel being married to a flight attendant. Heather feels good and safe with Derek so far. Heather has been there before but never with a significant other. They seem to have fun joking together. She doesn’t want to start picking at little things yet. He likes to gamble. Uh oh smoking. Her superpower would be the ability to speak every language. He wants to use the force. Dr. Pepper said she told them she didn’t mind occasional smoking. More things in the wait and see folder.

Agenda / Comments

For some reason the show started early so I had to rewatch the first 15 min. The end of the episode showed what was to come and it looks like a lot of drama.

 

Lillian & Tom

Imafs4-3ltt’s raining so much before the wedding. This girl is so concerned about the rain. Tom’s father is not at the wedding because he was not part of the first 13 years of his life. Lillian and Tom are getting married under 2 umbrellas. The pearls are bad luck because they represent tears. They are already touchy. Both of them had fathers that left them at various stages in life. Wow, so her sister is mad she didn’t have a bigger part in the wedding. I’m sure the reception is the best time to mention that.

 

Heather & Derick

mafs4-3hdHer parents were married for decades after knowing each other for 3 months. They like the way each other looks so that is good. Heather is not happy with the photographer wanting them to kiss so much. I always think of flight attendants as fake friendly. She may be doing some of that at the wedding.

 

 

 

Sonia & Nick

mafs4-3snNick saw her and actually said I’ll take that. It took a while for Sonia to say yes. Sonia is too nervous to make conversation. Guess what, she is afraid of dogs and he has 2. Sonia mentioned to Nick’s mother that he didn’t compliment her. I think the mother is liking her already. It didn’t look that way leading up to the wedding. Nick thinks it’s too soon to be open about how pretty Sonia is… For some reason Nick told her friends that he loves her. As in love at first sight. Wow. This is a rollercoaster ride.

Agenda / Comments

Time for season 4 in Miami. Most of the previous experts are gone. Dr. Rachel DeAlto, relationship expert/sex expert/life coach, and Calvin Roberson, marriage counselor/pastor are joining sociologist, Dr. Pepper Schwartz. 33,000 people applied to the show this year. That is crazy. Did they not see the bad results from the last 2 seasons?
 
 

Final 6

 
Derick – 35 – Account Executive
 
Derick was in the Navy for 4 years. He is a silly person. Derick was raised by a single mother and he is looking for that stable family influence.
 
Heather – 32 – Flight Attendant
 
Heather gets dumped most of the time. She is not sure what she is doing wrong. I’m guessing it is all her travel. She is looking for someone to do things with.
 
Lillian – 24 – Realtor
 
Lillian is originally from Nicaragua. Apparently, she came to the US and went to medical school.
 
Nick – 32 – Vacation Rental Manager
 
He likes to take care of people. Recently his aunt and uncle were in a car wreck and his aunt died. Their long marriage was an inspiration to him.
 
Sonia – 33 – Social Worker
 
Parents are Costa Rican. She is looking for her husband to be her best friend. I don’t know if this is the process for that.
 
Tom – 29 – Yacht Designer
 
He lives in a bus basically. He’s going to have to find someone that will live in a bus.
 
 

The Couples up to the Wedding

 
They get 2 weeks’ notice on their marriage and the ring sizes. Below are observations on why they were put together and things that happened leading up to the wedding.
 
Heather & Derick
 
Heather has a fear of rejection and her parentmafs4-1 heather+dericks are still married after 30+ years. She is happy in everything else. Derick likes to make the most out of things. He grew up without a father and he wants to be a good husband. Both quiet, educated and attractive. They both have and like to travel. She wants someone to depend on and he is a good person.
 
Derick says his mom is his best friend. That’s not going to be a problem I’m sure. Heather is telling her parents she is going to marry a stranger by video chat. Everyone is supportive. Heather is fidgeting and freaking out waiting to walk down the aisle.
 
 
Lillian & Tom
 
Lillian is affectionate. When shemafs4-1 lillian+tom left home her parents divorced and she slowly heard less and less from her father. Tom doesn’t think women understand and accept him. The both rescue animals. Physically they think they will be compatible.
 
Lillian’s friend and sister are being told. They are happy for her. Tom’s brother is surprised and emotional to be the best man. Apparently they think Lillian is not materialistic. That is good with him living in a bus. Pearls in a wedding is bad luck in Nicaragua so none on the dress. You knew that he would give her a necklace with pearls on them. That with having to have her brother-in-law walk her down the aisle. She feels bad that she can’t wear it.
 
 
Sonia & Nick
 
Her parents got divorced aftemafs4-1 sonia+nickr 20+ years so she was surprised it was still possible after that amount of time. She wants to have a successful marriage. High in family values, education, ambitious are similar.
 
Nick’s mother is shocked, but she is supporting him. Sonia had dinner with her father to tell him. He’s supportive too. How boring. Nick got Scotch and she got champagne and a basket of things. Nick’s mother is already picking at Sonia’s choice of words in her note. Sonia referred to the scotch as whiskey which I found out is the same thing. Maybe she didn’t know that either. Uh oh, they are putting an outgoing person with someone not so much. I see a Sam/Neil thing.

Agenda / Comments

The format has been changed. Now, Dr. Pepper is interviewing all the people instead of the mess that was last year. I think it was too angry last season. I don’t know if they will put Ashley and David in a room together.
 
 

The Couples

Neil & Sam
 
So they tried to get together after the show ended but decided to be friends. They talk frequently. Dr. Pepper thinks “they are not finished with each other”. Sam even said she is still proud to wear her ring because of the great guy she is married to. One Twitter, Sam was responding to comments saying that Neil is done with it. People really want them to get back together. At the end, Neil and Sam go to brunch and give each other gifts like they will never see each other again. They are taking pics in their weird pajamas.
 
 
Tres & Vanessa
 
The boring couple is no longer together. Their intimacy ended and Tres felt like he was walking on eggshells around her. I think Vanessa is more upset about it than Tres is. He did cry a little when it was just him and Dr. Pepper. Tre and Vanessa have dinner together for the show. It was probably not a good idea. It is just an awkward situation. I’m sure that Tres has moved on to the next girl (or 2) already.
 
 
David & Ashley
 
I like how it was uncomfortable for Dr. Pepper to watch this couple. Ashley is really putting all this on David. It’s funny but sad at the same time. He had no chance. Ashley had no desire to see David again. David thinks he tried too hard and reaching out to her friend was not the best thing. He is still optimistic about his future. I bet Ashley is ready to fade back into obscurity.
 
 

General

 
It looks like they are considering a season 4. The FYI website is looking for singles in Miami. It has been 9 couples and only 2 have stayed together. I will watch if there is a new one.

The Couples

Neil & Sam

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sam is all over Neil now. I think he is still uncertain and Sam sees that. The activity before the decision is rock climbing something Neil likes to do. I’m sure it’s part of showing trust. The experts talk about the struggles Neil and Sam have as a couple. From what I have seen, the one that has changed is Sam but I don’t think Neil needed to change. Sam talked to her roommate of course and Neil called his mom. He’s afraid damage has already been done. The morning of the decision day has Sam so nervous and Neil is calm. All Sam can think of his how she doesn’t want a future alone. Sam thanks Neil for making her a better person. He thanks her for helping him with communication. She is upset that she may have messed up the relationship. She did. He wants a divorced and you can see how pissed she is. Sam ran out the room. Dr. Pepper had to go outside to talk to her while Sam sobs. I don’t know how many days were between the decision and the meeting at that house. Sam is never going to talk to that guy again. She already threw some jabs.

 

Tres & Vanessa

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I don’t know why they are acting like they won’t stay married. Even if they don’t stay married for the long term, they will in the short term. Tres got Vanessa a gift. Before they leave, Vanessa and Tres don’t talk much. I knew they would stay married. Tres doesn’t just buy Vanessa stuff but the dog as well.

 

David & Ashley

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The only way David and Ashley can relate is when they are doing an outdoor activity. David decided they should go for a run. Ashley is acting like she is still undecided and he is deluding himself into thinking there is a chance. At the end of the experiment, Ashley realizes for this you have to open up quickly. David’s friends think he is crazy for wanting to stay with Ashley but they can’t say it. Ashley acts like she is doing work to keep her marriage together when she talks to her friends. They don’t know what is really going on. We only see what is on camera but we know more. Of course Ashley wants a divorce and is using David’s contacting that girl as the main reason. Not that she didn’t like him from the start but that he may have done something wrong for 1 day. At home, David has no time for Ashley now. For some reason, she wants to talk to him. He did a video message to his future wife/mother of his kids. How annoying.
