Married At First Sight” episode 5, aptly titled “Everyday Life,” let the couples adjust to normal lives with work and families. They had to rearrange their schedules or adjust to life without seeing each other. Some couples put in effort to change their schedules and see each other while other couples just tried to accept the differences. All of them struggled with the adjustment.

Vaughn and Monet

Vaughn doesn’t like that Monet is already bringing up meeting her friends. Monet doesn’t understand why he feels overwhelmed. When they were on their honeymoon, he didn’t feel like she was paying enough attention to him, but now he feels like there is too much attention. She asks him what the balance is and he really can’t give her an answer.

Vaughn says, “How bubbly you are is somewhat annoying to me.”

Although they are supposed to be adjusting to everyday life together, Vaughn actually has to work for the Air Force (which he does one weekend a month). Vaughn decides to stay at his apartment in New Jersey because it’s close to the base. Monet is concerned that they are only a week into living together and are already taking a break from each other. She says communication is a struggle and calls Dr. Pepper, the sociologist, for advice. Dr. Pepper tells Monet to communicate more clearly.

The couple meets up in New Jersey and goes on a date. All seems to be going well until Vaughn suggests they cook dinner like this at home. Monet laughs, “Yeah, we can try.”

Vaughn clarifies, “And when I say ‘us,’ I really mean ‘you.’”

Vaughn also suggests that they schedule when they have sex, and Monet is shocked. Monet isn’t truly offended until Vaughn asks her if they can have a threesome. That really kills any chance they had at making the night romantic.

“Vaughn and Monet have a great physical relationship,” Dr. Pepper says, “But they don’t really know how to talk to each other in ways that can let the problem be the problem and not each other be the problem.”

Monet knows that Vaughn is struggling with the move to New York, so she offers to switch her mattress out of the apartment and bring in his bed. While driving back to New York, Monet admits that she doesn’t trust Vaughn yet. She doesn’t think he is stable. He has only been out of the military for a year and a half, and she isn’t sure that he knows what he wants in life. Vaughn feels like she is unfairly judging him when she doesn’t really know him.

Jason and Cortney

The Brooklyn-based couple already feel very close. Jason acknowledges how weird it is that they’re already so integrated in each other’s lives.

Cortney is getting ready for her busiest month of work. She has three burlesque shows this month, rehearsals for the performances, plus her normal nine to five job as a makeup artist. Jason works weird hours with his EMS job plus his wrestling and taking care of his mom take time. Despite crazy schedules, both are very optimistic about their relationship.

“I feel like it’s a little too good to be true,” Jason says to a friend. “I’m not waiting for something bad to happen, but I just don’t want to get my hopes up.”

Jason works his first night shift, and Cortney admits that she doesn’t like to sleep alone anymore. She comes home and finds that Jason put a note with the lyrics of their wedding song on the mirror and put a bottle of wine in the fridge for her.

Jason switches his schedule two days a week so he can see his wife more. “I definitely could be falling in love with her,” Jason says.

Doug and Jamie

Doug and Jamie are the only couple that hasn’t had sex yet. “I know her morals,” Doug says. “I know her values and I’m in no rush to move forward with physical intimacy. It’ll happen but it’ll happen in our time and there’s no reason to rush any of that.”

Jamie is really happy with Doug. However, Doug’s mother still hasn’t overcome her skepticism from the wedding, and Jamie hasn’t gotten a chance to prove that she cares about Doug in front of his mother.

Doug has lunch with his brother and sister (both of whom work with him) and tells them that he doesn’t really see his wife. She is working nights, so they are on opposite schedules.

Jamie catches up with one of her bridesmaids, Kirsten. She admits to her friend that she is falling for Doug. She also tells Kirsten that she knows that his mother his apprehensive, but she loves that Doug has a big family.

Doug wants to bring Jamie to a softball game with his family, but Jamie can’t get off work. Doug doesn’t think that she understands how important events like this are in his family. At the softball game, Doug’s parents complain about Jamie not coming to the game. “We’ve only seen her a couple of times. We don’t even know who she is yet,” Doug’s dad says.

Doug and Jamie are on completely opposite schedules and barely see each other throughout the episode.
