Give me a kiss, baby [upbeat music] [knocking on door] – Is that someone at the door? – I think so – Was that a knock? – Hey! – Hi! – How you doing? – Come on in – Good, how are you? – Good to see you – Welcome to our home – Our couples have just celebrated their one-month anniversary, and it’s time to start looking toward the future Good communication is key to having a successful marriage, and for our newlyweds, it’s extremely important to figure out how to communicate effectively now, because in just two and a half weeks, they will have to decide whether to stay married or get a divorce So, today, I wanted to talk about communication I have some footage that I’ve brought along today to show you guys some clips together of things I think are going really well between the two of you, and then I’ll show you some additional footage after that – Oh, I’m curious to see that additional footage Stephanie and I are communicating well, both in good times and in bad times, and what it comes down to, especially in the bad times, is the respect for each other So I don’t know what Dr. Jessica could possibly show us to indicate that we don’t have good communication between us, ’cause clearly we do I know I can be overwhelming at times with talking If I start talking a little bit too loud, you just take your hand and just go–then I know And I know that means “shut your mouth.” – [laughs] – First breakfast in our new apartment I could get used to this life – I just want you to be happy – Well, you do a good job of making me happy – I just want to say thank you for being such an amazing husband this past month, and I just feel like I’m at home when I’m with you I really hope we can keep this up, because if we’re as happy as we are in one month, I don’t even know where we’re gonna be in a year – We might explode – We might explode – So I think the two of you did a lot of things really well You’re willing to adjust to the other person, those natural sort of compromises that you were making And Stephanie, you did such a great job– and I don’t know if you noticed this, but you did a lot of praise of AJ So the more that you can praise your partner for the things that you want to see more of, the more you’re gonna get the things that you want to see more of So I think these are examples of really solid communication between the two of you think watching these clips from an outside perspective really helps solidify that what AJ and I are doing to try to make this marriage work seems to be working – I’m gonna show you another set of clips here that show communication that may be a little more challenging, and I’m curious to hear what your thoughts are – It’s our first homework A week into marriage – What are we, in middle school? – No! – N-no. I mean, you’re gonna throw me on the spot right now and I’m gonna have nothing for you – I mean, they should’ve told us Homework is normally done at home for the next day You have time to think about it – We had time to think about it All right, you grab the books, I’ll grab– – No, I’m not dragging them out right now I’m not just gonna decide on the fly what I’m gonna rip out of here, ’cause I still come here every day It needs to look not like an empty place I’m gonna walk into and want to blow my brains out ’cause it’s so empty So we can have a discussion about it, but I’m not just gonna start ripping this place apart right now – Okay – Yeah – Do you want to go somewhere and watch this while we grab a bite to eat? – Sure – Watch the game? – We can do either Misconduct or City Tap, or yeah– – Let’s just go somewhere We’ve been talking about it for 20 minutes We’re gonna end up not eating anything – Oh, no, no, no We’ll definitely go You would never leave the TV if the Gators were about to score – I just wanted to get the hell out of the house I felt like a trapped animal – It feels uncomfortable – I’m fine with any of those places – We’re going to Misconduct – Okay – That’s the first choice I’ve got to make on my own for myself in over a month ♪ ♪ I was wondering what bad they were gonna try and pull out – All right Tell me what–what struck you about the communication there – None of that stuff, to me anyway, seems very significant I mean that had nothing to do with the marriage whatsoever There have not been frustrations in the marriage The frustration is a lot of the outside things to do with the production aspect Uh, for me, seeing something that just looks like complete mass chaos to me, this is something that’s just disgusting, to be honest [dramatic music] – Tell me more, ’cause that’s a– that’s a strong word, so I want to make sure that I understand – I stick by my wording – Okay, I-I’m not saying that– – I think that the level of additional added mess that they add to this complicated situation has been relatively easy for us It’s just extremely unnatural
The hurry-up-and-wait– and I’ve worked in many industries My clients span all industries except production – I-I hear you, I hear you In the television world, things are last-minute, and–and it’s stressful – Not only do I want to fix it, I feel like I could also revamp and redesign, get everything structured and organized and streamlined – That said, what I would hate to see happen is where you take that frustration, and it ends up eating away at your experience with your wife and in your marriage – Oh, it won’t – And where she doesn’t get the best of you The documentation process can be stressful, on top of the marriage, but sometimes people can take out their frustrations with one another on production It’s an easy target, and I just want to make sure that when the cameras go away in two and a half weeks that AJ’s not going to start taking out his frustrations on Stephanie – It doesn’t leak into the marriage at all – Okay So let me– Stephanie, I want to check in with you about when he goes into a tailspin What–what is that like for you? [percussive music] – Because I’ve watched your expression, and I don’t know if you’re just going into “let’s figure this out” mode, but you can see her sort of shift a little bit when you start to get upset Is there a way you would’ve liked him to have approached you differently in that moment, or were you okay with the way that things went? – How am I supposed to get frustrated? – Well, there’s nothing wrong with being frustrated I think it could be– in that moment, it–it could be helpful to, you know, “I’m feeling really frustrated right now.” Just voicing it so that there’s a voice to what you’re actually feeling rather than– – Rather than letting her see my face and figure it out on her own? – Right It’s clear to me that Stephanie is uncomfortable with AJ’s behavior, but AJ is in complete denial I just want to also be sensitive to Stephanie’s position too in that I can imagine, Stephanie, seeing you frustrated, wouldn’t be hard to just sort of figure out what to do – But we share a lot of the same frustrations So it’s our voice I’m voicing, not mine – My hope for the two of them is that Stephanie’s able to find her voice and confront AJ so that he can acknowledge that what he’s doing is affecting his wife and take action to change his behavior in the future She could misread and think that you’re frustrated with her, when really you’re frustrated with something else, you know? – Yeah ♪ ♪ – ♪ You could have it all with just one shot ♪ ♪ Many people in the world would kill for your spot ♪ ♪ No pain, no gain ♪ ♪ Suck it up, don’t complain ♪ – You ready to bowl? – Yep – I’m gonna kick your ass – No, you’re not No, you [laughs] After a month of being married, Will and I are still working through a lot of things, but we have pretty good chemistry, and we kind of play around a lot – This is gonna be easy – You’re probably not even good – You’re gonna find out – So, tonight, I am gonna kick his butt – There go the real you. Yep – You gotta be calm I wasn’t calm I’m very competitive – I’m not even gonna talk to you, ’cause I don’t want you to think I distracted you or anything like that – You did Will drank some type of energy drink before we got here or something, so he’s, like, wired Really? So things are getting very heated – Ah! – Exactly – That slipped – [laughs] – I’m having a ball tonight with my wife My favorite thing about Jasmine, she’s very playful – You’re sleeping on the couch tonight if you don’t get a strike – Good night! Ah! – [laughs] – We can joke easily together and just kind of let loose and have fun – Who won? Who won this game? Where there’s a will, there’s a way, and Will just got his butt kicked So while we’re eating, I want to ask some kind of semi-serious questions Do you have a, like, five-year plan? [percussive music] – Yes Within my five-year plan, I hope to save to get another property so, you know, I can get some other income that will support children You know, I said I’d like to have kids in, like… two to three years, like, max – Mm-hmm – It’s so important for our couples to have fun, but it’s also important for them to get on the same page in regards to the future, because in just two and a half weeks, all our couples will have to decide whether they’re going to stay married or get a divorce – Also in my five-year plan, I hope to start slowly transitioning into, you know, coaching, at least part-time or whatever Basketball Part-time, maybe summer – But coaching doesn’t generate money – It does – How? – You don’t see, like, college coaches making millions? – No, they don’t Unless they’re in, like, a popular school – College coaches make millions – Not for–I mean, maybe D1, yeah
– That’s what I’m talking about – It’s really nice to know that we are on the same page when it comes to certain things, such as kids, but Will talking about switching careers, that’s a little concerning, because you need money to definitely have multiple kids So that’s what you want to be, a D1– – I just want to be a– I just want to be a coach I mean– – A basketball coach – I want to make a difference in, like, kids’ lives I’m a bit shocked My wife, she just, you know, focuses on the money Like, I don’t really want to follow money It’s almost like, “When’s enough?” I wanted more of a partnership in a marriage I want to feel supported in all of my endeavors ♪ ♪ [melancholy music] ♪ ♪ – What’s going on?

So yeah, it’s still hard to be around him, but I–then, at the same time, I still want to be – Yeah Hmm You have feelings for him? – Yeah, I do – Yeah [tender music] You’re sounding like a woman who has some strong feelings for–for a man and–and is worried that he doesn’t want you, and I think part of it is, why it’s so hard for you to decide to divorce is, you are emotionally invested in this You need to have a raw and honest conversation with Luke – Okay – You’ll get some more clarity, hopefully… right? – Mm-hmm I’m scared to tell Luke everything, but I hope that by sharing this with him, d why I’m unhappy This might not work out I might need to get a divorce – It’s all right, if there’s anything else you need, please feel free to reach out, okay? – Okay, thank you Bye [phone beeps] [cymbal shimmering] [dramatic music] [upbeat pop music] ♪ ♪ – Can you pour me some, honey? Please [knocking on door] – With decision day less than two weeks away, it’s important that our couples get on the same page in regards to sex, money, kids, and communication Regardless of whether you’ve been together for years or if you married a complete stranger, that can easily drive h a couple apart and ultimately end them in divorce – So, Will, anything with Jasmine that you wanted to address? – Yes, one being communication Like, digging through my layers to get to know who I am and why I do what I do, and clear communication as well Say what you mean And I used the example of how she views the gender roles, financials specifically – Okay – And how she kind of, like, goes back and forth with it Between me and my wife, clear and effective communication is the number one thing lacking My biggest fear is that she will revert back to what she genuinely wants, and if the man paying for everything is what she wants, then that’s not me Initially, on the honeymoon, when it was first brought up, you know, she was like, “I think the man should pay the majority of the bills,” and I just, you know, expressed to her, you know, that’s not how I see marriage, and she was kind of on board, and then it flip-flops [dramatic music] – Do you feel that way? Do you feel like he should be taking care of you financially and– – Not necessarily taking care of me, but just, like, the house– like, majority of the bills in the house – You do want him paying the majority of the bills in the house and being the provider Okay – But we compromise on it, because I know that’s not how he feels – There’s a difference between compromising and sacrificing, and I think that’s what you want to be clear about So an exercise the two of you can do is just writing, perhaps, about what values you have associated with money and work and career – Okay – If you really feel like he should be paying the majority of the bills and you say, “Okay, I’m gonna compromise,” but really, you’re feeling resentful ’cause you’re actually sacrificing a value that you have Do you see the difference between the two? So I think you need to be really clear for yourself on what that is – Some of the same concerns I had grew during the honeymoon have come to light here Will won’t be that provider I’ve always wanted – Will, you know, as far as your position, sort of where your head is at with your career, and I think be clear on what your values are so that the two of you can communicate about that – I have risked everything coming into this I put my family through this, so I’m just hoping that we can come together from, like, two different perspectives If this marriage ends in divorce, it could have been all for nothing, a hard pill to swallow [dramatic music] [upbeat music] – ♪ I’ve got a feeling and I’m coming alive ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ We can stand the test of time ♪ ♪ ♪ – So pretty – It feels fantastic to have Stephanie back home again It really put things into perspective I thought it would be possibly a break that I needed, but I didn’t realize how dedicated I am to her until she was gone I wanted to just catch up with you about what happened with Dr. Jess Our communication videos were a little awkward,
and I just want to make sure that, you know, we’re on the same page It’s true that we’re not frustrated with each other, but the one thing that she said that, you know, really hit home to me was, if it continues to weigh on us, it’s just wasted energy that we’re focusing on We relieve stress in different ways, and sometimes enough is enough, and I think that’s when I hit my – Yeah – Breaking point I’ve seen a lot of AJ in a short amount of time He is generally a very happy, positive person That’s all his friends ever say about him They’ve known him for 30 years, and they never see him mad Well, I’ve only known him for five weeks and I’ve seen him mad, so it’s not a very good sign – Seeing myself back definitely was a little bit of a realization to me ♪ ♪ I feel horrible over that, and, you know, it’s– you’re gonna be in the front of my mind now, and the situation and things like that, when I go to pop off at the mouth, you’re going to come to mind Stephanie and I have been so open with each other from day one that it’s built such a solid foundation for us Probably my sweat – [laughs] For once, they’re not coming for me – Every day, I am learning more about her, and the more I learn, the more I like The more I like, the more it’s leading me down that path towards love I’m the type of person, like, as long as you let me know, I’m gonna make every attempt that I possibly can to fix it – I can see – So – You’re doing a good job – That makes me feel good That’s what I continue to hope to hear for many years to come ♪ ♪ I’m happy with you – Me too ♪ ♪ [suspenseful music] ♪ ♪ – We need to talk – What’s up? – I need to talk to Luke about maybe wanting a divorce I hope that by sharing this with him, maybe he can explain some things to me So I hit a breaking point [percussive music] You say that you care, but you did nothing at all for our anniversary ♪ ♪ – Yeah – I’m confused ♪ ♪ I thought about the divorce option – Don’t want to get a divorce Because I care about you – But it needs to be done ♪ ♪ – Do you think I’m not getting attached at all? – I know that you’re not into me, so I am– – Don’t want to get hurt? – I am hurt ♪ ♪ – ‘Cause they’ll just get concerned about you, which is kind of the hyperbole of your words, I would say – What do you mean? – Like, extreme absolutes, when you talk ♪ ♪ – I feel like any sort of, like, feelings that I may have developed towards him or thoughts about him being what I wanted in a husband were due to manipulation and not reality It’s, like, a dangerous game that is happening ♪ ♪ – I’m sorry the first week was very tough, and I’m really trying since then to, you know, make the best of the situation – What did you say?
