And, I mean, sports are a lot of parallels to life That competitiveness, how I’m always pushing you, like, that’s what was instilled from here Like, it was, like, the older guys, like, pushing us to make us tougher and, like, really create who we are, like, you know what I mean? Where I got my sense of community and compassion and everything, and there’s just so many principles that I learned from being here, but, you know, this is what makes me the man that stands before you – Absolutely – It’s a little nippy out here – Yes, it is – Let’s get out of here Let’s go get some hot chocolate or something – Hot chocolate? – Yeah ♪ – ♪ I’ll take you up ♪ To where we belong ♪ – Hi – Today I brought Kate to the bay that I grew up in as a child We spent countless hours out on the waters just kind of exploring and growing up Butter pecan? – Definitely not butter pecan – What about butter pe-can? – No – How do you say it?

This is where you measure them, see? – Yeah – These backwaters, where I spent literally all of my childhood – Nice, I like it – But, yeah – My hopes for the future are that we can really move past and forgive each other for things in the beginning of our marriage and become really, really close and happy together ♪ This is really nice here I’m just having a great time This is the first time in my marriage that I actually feel like Luke’s wife – ♪ Oh, you’re beautiful ♪ In the little things you do ♪ – ♪ Flashing lights ♪ We’re in the fast lane ♪ Do it with – Hi – Hey – Hey, you two. Welcome. Hi Good to see you – Good to see you – Keith and I have hit our first speed bump since we’ve been married No matter how much we talk about it, Keith still expects me to cook him three meals a day and refuses to help I’m tired of it, so I want to sit down with Dr. Jessica and get some help with our communication – What’s your married life been like? ♪ – It’s more up than down ♪ – I think we’re just learning to live with each other – You know, everybody sort of expresses and receives love in different ways What helps you feel most cared about? – You don’t want to hear that answer – Yeah, I do – She doesn’t want to hear that answer either – What’s the answer? – It’s food ♪ – Oh – See? I told you – So food? Okay – Our disagreement was, like, over food the other day – Okay – Surprisingly enough, but it seems to be the only thing he really relates to Yeah, doesn’t like to cook at all – Have you tried it? – It’s rare – So what we settled on was me doing all the cooking and him doing all the cleaning, and then he complained about the amount of cleaning he had to do for the amount of food he was getting and decided he wanted three meals a day, and I wanted to strangle him – [laughs] – You know, food can represent different things to different people There may be certain dishes that you remember from your childhood that are really important to you and they’re comforting to you, especially when there’s a stressful time You’re kind of going through a stressful experience right now, so it wouldn’t surprise me that you want to have that sort of comfort – I came from a house where I’m in an all-female house and I didn’t have to cook I grew up with just me, my mom, my aunt, but mainly my grandmother My grandmother is my everything, really I didn’t have, like, a father figure to show me, “Hey, this is how to be a man.” Growing up, I do have, like, a scenario I think I was 13 My dad got drunk He was like, “All right, drive the car home.” So I’m driving around North Philly

Don’t know which way to go on Broad Park the car, and I called my grandpa “Hey, can you come get us?” He’s like, “Where your dad at?” “Oh, he in the car He asleep.” “So who’s driving me the car?” “It’s me, Pop-pop Just tell me which way to go.” And, you know, I was just like, “Okay, this is bad,” you know, so – You just described–and thank you for sharing that, by the way You described a kid who had to grow up too fast and what we’d call a parentified child, and what that means is, you are put in the role of a caregiver, and it does affect the way in which you relate to other people That’s exactly what we’re seeing here today, the way in which we heal from adversity that was caused within our own relationships growing up, so with your dad, for example It’s through other relationships in which actual healing can occur Your mother and grandmother helped you through food and were able to create a safe space for you – Oh – Does that make sense? – That makes a lot of sense – Okay – I never thought about it like that – And so having a supportive, consistent, reliable, predictable relationship and marriage can actually hope to promote healing from what you’ve gone through before with your dad [dramatic music] – In that moment, I definitely gained a lot more empathy for my husband, Keith I really took a step back, took a look at the overall picture, and I can see where he was affected, and I can see where all the women in Keith’s life showed their love by taking care of him because he was so busy taking care of his father So I need to just have a lot more patience for myself and with him, you know? But mainly with him, knowing that he feels love through food – He made you breakfast, is that right? Was it all right? – It was good – Aw, thanks – ♪ You just got what it takes ♪ ♪ I’m thinkin’ we could make this happen ♪ ♪ Are you thinking we could make this happen? ♪ – Hi – Hey – How are you? – I come bearing gifts – [laughs] – I am at my Aunt Susie’s house, and Will is actually here for the first time, so I cannot wait for him to see where I spent a lot of time with family – You like to eat? – Oh, definitely – I like to feed. Come on [laughter] – When I come to Aunt Susie’s house, I really feel loved I feel family, and it’s just somewhere that’s familiar, and I just feel comfortable I feel home Even though we only have been married 3 1/2 weeks, I want Will to be able to look at my family as his family now too Well, Aunt Susie, Uncle Joe, I brought Will here So I wanted him to know how important that you guys are to me and that your home is to me – Sometimes she was here more than home, and I’d usually get tired of her – No, you didn’t – No, not really. Not really – We want to welcome you, Will – Thank you, thank you – We are a very close family – Jasmine’s family seems very inviting It just seems like a very cozy and old-school value type of place where they want to just stuff with you food, which isn’t a bad thing [chuckles] It’s a place that she feels safe at It helped mold her to the person that, you know, stood before me at the altar, and I can see what makes it, you know, special to her – She was a good child She really was – I know. I was an angel – I didn’t say “angel,” now – She didn’t say “angel.” – I didn’t say “angel.” – [laughs] – What type of marriage advice can y’all give us? – Not a disrespectful thing, but, Jazzy, you have to listen to Will ♪ Be respectful of each other – Mm-hmm – Because he is the man of your house – I’m feeling a little betrayed They’re supposed to be my cheerleaders, so I don’t need to listen to Will Will needs to listen to me What defines man of the house? – Because he’s gonna take care of most of the bills – No. See? We don’t agree on that ♪ – Here comes the topic of money and finances again From the honeymoon, Jasmine and I have been in disagreement No, I don’t believe in traditional gender roles – Oh, you don’t? Okay – I mean, I will do certain stuff Like, I mean, I’m gonna take out the trash and What else is manly? Taking out trash – Paying bills – No, that’s 50/50 ♪ – 50/50? ♪ – You don’t think so? – No – Jasmine and I have the fundamental differences, and I’m still trying to figure out how a marriage can work or if it can work with those fundamental differences – Will doesn’t feel that way He’s like, “50/50.” – You have to work together What you put into this marriage, you will get back If you put nothing into it, you get nothing back – You need to come up with a solution together – Right, that’s for both of you ♪ – What do you think? ♪

– What defines man of the house? – Because he’s gonna take care of most of the bills – No. See? We don’t agree on that ♪ – You have to work together ♪ Communication is the most important thing you guys will ever have – Mm-hmm – That’s how you’re gonna learn each other – I’m taking the advice very, very seriously Having a couple that has 58 years of marriage under their belt giving advice is amazing I mean, they’ve been married longer than I’ve been alive, so you just want to soak up all the knowledge that they can give I appreciate you guys for opening your home to me I definitely feel welcome, and I thank you guys for that – Yeah. Well, I’m glad to hear that He can be officially accepted as our nephew – Yay [laughter] – I take Aunt Susie’s advice very seriously I am learning that you have to compromise I am going to listen to my husband It might be hard at first, but differences will happen I won’t always agree with you on everything, but we have to come together as one – All right, now – I’m gonna push you out the door like I did before – Oh, no. No, no – Go, go, go [laughter] – That’s how you got ran out when you was a kid? – Yeah Y’all kicking me out again – ♪ Don’t stop looking up ♪ ‘Cause the sky’s not coming down ♪ ♪ And you might not see the sun ♪ – Yay – Today we’re going to see Stan and Kay, Stephanie’s parents Family is a big deal to me, and I do want to make a good impression – [knocking] Hello – Hi – Hi – Hey – Hello – Hey, Stephanie And my new son-in-law – Hi – A goal for me in marriage is to be just like my parents My parents have been married for over 30 years and they’re so cute together and they still do the little things every day to make the marriage last and they are definitely my role models for marriage So this is my parents’ place – Our parents’ place – Yeah, yeah [laughter] Duh – Nice to be considered your parent. I’m happy – It feels so good to bring AJ to my parents’ house, but I’ve had ex-boyfriends that my parents did not like, so I hope that he fits in and he loves my family just as much as I do – I want to sit down and talk with AJ for a little bit, if that’s all right – Dinner’s not the only thing getting grilled here [laughter] – Exactly, exactly – In past relationships, looking back, I don’t think I’ve ever felt 100% comfortable with the other person’s family, but I’m married now Obviously, I want my wife to love me I want her to like me, but I also want her parents to see the relationship that we build and the bond that we have, and I want her parents to feel that same type of affection towards me as their son – We’d like to know about your background: where you went to school, what did you major in, what kind of work you do – So you just want me to bring you up to speed on my life? – Yeah. Like, in other words, who is AJ? [laughs] – So born and raised in Long Island and went to college in Connecticut, in New Haven, for criminal justice I always wanted to be a police officer, so I went that direction, and then I ended up getting in a bad motorcycle accident after college Three screws in my shoulder, and that ended that vision of that career And then one day in 2012, I woke up and I said, “You know, my career, it’s going well, but it’s at a standstill.” I wasn’t being challenged So I put my nose to the grindstone and just learned every aspect and ended up opening my own staffing agency the last year – Getting married at first sight was a big risk for Stephanie to take Sitting with AJ today, I need to get to know him I need to get to see what his past was, what his interests are, his background, so that I could feel that he’s a little bit more of a fit for Stephanie The reason I have my own business is because I didn’t want anybody telling me what to do – What to do – You and me both – [laughs] Uh-oh – Now I got married, so She’s allowed She’s the only one that’s allowed to – She’ll tell you what to do – Literally, I mean, we do nothing but laugh You got a pretty funny daughter – Well, I’ll tell you, I have to really thank you for, you know, the one or two times that we were on a conference call with you on speakerphone, and to actually hear her laughing and you laughing, you know, just over conversations, you know, is just something that– She’s had some very stressful times – It helps to relieve some of our concerns – Growing up as an only child, I’ve always dreamed about marrying into a bigger family Ask my imaginary friends from when I was young, Joe and Mike Mike was who I always blamed stuff on so I didn’t get in trouble, ’cause I didn’t have a brother or sister, and Joe was kind of the best friend that I didn’t blame anything on I’m right at her height maximum You know, she said she doesn’t want anybody over 6 foot I think I listed myself as 6 foot and a 1/2 inch, but once I took my shoes and socks off and measured myself, I’m, like, 5’11”

and, like, 15/16ths, so I’m good Having Stephanie’s parents welcome me into their family and support us in this crazy thing we’re doing, it means the world to me It’s just one more step to getting everything I’ve ever wanted out of life Even with decision day still four weeks away, I feel like I’m gonna be calling Steph my wife for the rest of my life I could not be any happier right now – Let’s go get some appetizers and– – Yeah, get some appetizers and find out where Stephanie ran off to – ♪ Lean in a little closer – [chuckles] ♪ Take my hand – In less than four weeks, it’s going to be decision day, and any successful marriage needs to be incorporating their family into it Our couples have been spending time with those that are closest to them in order to decide whether they should stay married or get a divorce – Why don’t you come sit next to me and have my dad, like, sit across from us? – Okay – Today Kristine is meeting my dad for the first time Couldn’t have him at the wedding because it would’ve caused friction between, you know, my mom and his mom, and, you know, I just wanted everybody to have a good time And I’m a little scared for him to meet Kristine, because he’s my dad You only get one dad, so it’s kind of important that he actually gets to meet her – What are you looking at? – I am looking at the chicken and waffles – Ooh, really? You should so I can eat some of yours – [chuckles] [dramatic music] – So we’re here at the restaurant We’re sitting, and we’re waiting ♪ And we’re waiting, and we’re waiting, and we realize he probably should have been here a little while ago Yeah, you want to call him? – Sure ♪ [line trilling] ♪ – Please leave your message [beep] – Hey, Dad.

Thought he would have been here by now – Yeah, me too – Because you can tell it’s something that he’s used to, just constantly being let down by him, and I don’t like to see him like this because I have so many feelings for him now and I don’t want to see him hurt – Hey What’s up, Mom-mom? – Did you talk to my dad?
