“Married At First Sight: The First Year” shows that the honeymoon is over for Cortney Hendrix and Jason Carrion. The two were shown in the premiere as being stressed out and distant, but it seems they’ll be getting some extra help this week. A sneak peek video for episode 2 shows that they called one of the experts from “Married At First Sight.” They hope that sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz can help them solve their issues.
“I feel like I’m just literally at a breaking point, and I can’t really hold it together that much longer without coming apart at the seams and just falling apart,” Cortney tells the camera. She explains that they “don’t want to grow any farther apart,” so they invite Dr. Pepper over to help them.
Dr. Pepper is happy to come over, especially since she doesn’t think Cortney sounds like her “normally bubbly and open self.” The sociologist reveals that she hasn’t seen either of them since the experiment ended. She asked the newlyweds about their recent challenges.
“Started off great,” Jason says. “It was always great, but man, just one thing [after another], and I feel like it’s not going to stop.”
“Our biggest struggle is time,” Cortney says. “Because we don’t see each other and I lost my job. It’s been hard. … Like every single day, we have something to do. Every single night we have something to do, somebody that needs something. And it’s like when it rains it pours because there’s just like one thing after another that was like going bad in my career and in my hobbies that I just stopped doing everything.”
Jason tells the cameras that it’s his training at the fire academy that is causing problems. “The academy has taken a big toll on this marriage,” he explains. “In the beginning we seemed like, you know, the perfect couple, but we’re not the perfect couple. We’re people. We have problems, we have complications, and it’s been real difficult.”
