‘Married at First Sight’: Amber Martorana and Dave Flaherty ‘Hate Each Other’ Says Therapist

Married at First Sight couple Amber Martorana and Dave Flaherty are trying to make it work, but so far things aren’t looking great. A therapist recently shared her thoughts on this couple and it appears they could “hate each other.” For now, they are still together and working through their issues on Married at First Sight.

Therapist speaks out about Amber Martorana and Dave Flaherty

On this new season of Married at First Sight, the viewers have watched Amber get mad at Dave over everything. She explained to him that her hair was falling out because she dyes it so much. He simply told her to stop dying it and Amber got upset because she is certain that he likes brunettes better. She just feels like she was meant to be a blonde.

Now, Anna Zapata, a licensed professional counselor in Dallas, is talking about her thoughts on Married at First Sight couple Amber and Dave. Anna is also a co-host of the podcast Pop Culture Therapists. Anna had one thing to say about the couple and that simply, “Amber and Dave hate each other.” Viewers can see where she is coming from on this opinion. He even recently said her fits are “ridiculous.”

Her co-host Kristen Diou elaborated a bit on her thoughts. She explained that it doesn’t look like Amber can handle stress very well. In her eyes, Dave is a bit “emotionally guarded.” She feels like Amber is working harder on the relationship and that Dave just dismisses her.

Will this couple make it?

So far, there is no proof that Amber and Dave of Married at First Sight don’t last. Soap Dirt confirmed with the Dallas courts and so far, they have NOT filed divorce papers. However, it wouldn’t be surprising at all if they split, following in the footsteps of Mia Bally and Tristan Thompson who recently filed to end their marriage. They just can’t seem to see eye to eye on anything.

A preview for next week’s episode of Married at First Sight shows these two arguing over the fact that Amber thinks Dave was hitting on her friend. This girl is a brunette, which is what Amber knows he is into. Dave has said more than once that he thinks Amber is gorgeous, but it isn’t enough for her.

Dave is simply talking about how well Amber’s friend did in the gym lass. After that, he talked to her friend Ashley, but he was just trying to set her up with a friend of his that is single. Amber doesn’t love it and says, “Seeing Dave talk to my friend Ashley, I’m a little bothered by it. Ashley is a tall brunette and I know Dave likes tall brunettes. It goes along with all my insecurities of not being good enough.”

Her insecurities could end up ruining her entire relationship. But the viewers will have to wait until the end of the season to find out. Either way, Dave faces what seems to be a daily struggle to keep his wife’s self-esteem afloat as her doubts eat at her constantly.

Dr. Jessica Griffin’s thoughts

Dr. Jessica Griffin shared her thoughts about Amber and Dave on Married at First Sight (see the video above)She is really concerned about Amber Martorana’s insecurities as well. She asks them how they are doing and Dave admitted they are having a rough patch. They are having communication issues without a doubt. Amber is also sure he wants her to change her hair to be more his type, but David says it isn’t the case.

Interestingly, a photo shot after the season ended (below) have Amber back to her roots as a natural brunette – was that for Dave’s benefit?

On the recent episode, Dave shared that he thinks Amber is beautiful, but that she takes things wrong sometimes. Dr. Jessica gets Dave to admit he is worried about their future when she goes into that negative place. He rated her a 7.5 as a wife and Amber just couldn’t get over this rating. She saw it as a “C” and was hurt.
