Married At First Sight: Married Life

After a whirlwind wedding when Jaclyn Schwartzberg and Ryan Buckley became married at first sight, they traveled to Jamaica for their honeymoon. Ryan raved about his perfect match, calling her "authentic" and "spiritual." The couple were definitely in the "honeymoon phase."

When they returned, Jaclyn opened up about the loss of her boyfriend. "He had an undiagnosed autoimmune disease growing up as a child, and it was by far the hardest thing I have ever gone through in my entire life," she explained. "But I also think it's what brought me here."

Ryan had some concerns that Jaclyn wasn't over her deceased boyfriend. He made it clear he wants to support Jaclyn but is ready to start a new life with her. As a result he felt some confusion and hesitation.

After becoming intimate, the Married At First Sight couple felt more connected than ever. Until, an odd moment when Ryan lied to the other couples about him and Jaclyn getting intimate. Still, things seemed to be going well for the couple.

Later, Jaclyn vocalized to Buckley that she felt he didn’t have enough time for her. She was frustrated that he was out every night with his friends and she was waiting for him in bed alone. Ryan tried to calm her worries. He was unsuccessful in convincing Jaclyn until he appeared in the bedroom with his firemen’s tool belt. As a result, the couple made up temporarily.

Later, they officially made up. But not before Ryan commented that their fight was a major breakdown in communication. Furthermore, he added that if they don't learn to improve their communication, he doesn't see their marriage lasting.
