Denver, Colorado: ‘Married at First Sight’ season 17 is getting more dramatic as decision day gets closer. On the latest episode of the Lifetime show, ‘MAFS’ couple Brennan Shoykhet and Emily Balch returned from their honeymoon and the next step was moving in together.

Emily is baffled by Brennan’s refusal to move in together and seeks help from expert Pastor Cal because she “could use someone to help figure this out in person.” “At first I thought he really liked me but then I started feeling unsure,” she admitted.

When Pastor Cal asked her why they were not together, Brennan admitted, “I guess I just don’t feel any kind of romance right now,” adding that he didn’t want to touch her.

Emily wanted to know what went wrong between them, so she asked Brennan, “I just need to tell you whether or not you’re physically attracted to me. Don’t think that you’ll hurt my feelings. You’ll hurt me. “Are you delivering?” My feelings when you don’t tell me everything.”

However, viewers were outraged by Brennan’s confession and took to X (formerly Twitter) to express their outrage. One viewer questioned, “Brennan seems really critical of Emily. Was he ever willing to give it a chance?”

Emily Balch’s ‘funny’ comment puts her marriage in jeopardy

During ‘MAFS’ season 17, during their honeymoon in Mexico, Emily jokingly asked Brennan if he knew how to have fun. However, Brennan became annoyed by Emily’s question and asked, “Why would you ask me that?”

Emily insisted that she was joking. However, he did not let it go. He admitted to the camera, “Do you like to have fun? What the hell is this?”

He denied being offended by Emily’s comment and said, “Trust me, you’ll know when I’m really mad.” However, viewers speculated that Emily’s “funny” comment may have changed Brenna’s feelings and ruined their relationship.

One social media user commented, “I think it was the “you’re not funny” comment that made him back off.” Another person said, “Brennan is still upset about that “do you know how to have fun” joke.”
