Married at First Sight: Chris Williams Admits He was Different Pre-Wedding
Chris Williams, of Married at First Sight, met with Paige Banks and Dr. Viviana to talk about his and Paige’s relationship. Since the Lifetime show began, MAFS fans blasted social media about his behavior and wondered how he got cast. Dr. Viviana told Chris she barely knew him because he was so different now than he was during the casting process.
Chris answered Married at First Sight expert Dr. Viviana and said the pre-wedding version is who he really is. The post-wedding version of Chris Williams indicates how he was affected by the wedding, filming, and pregnancy news. Chris admitted it put him in a depressive state and many fans said it’s like Chris has a “split personality”.
And, he said, it made him unable to decide as to what was right or wrong. The MAFS husband didn’t know what to do or how to do it, and he lost it.
Dr. Viviana told Chris Williams and Paige Banks that she was there to see whether there is any hope to improve their marriage. But when the doctor asked Paige Banks what she went through, she answered that it was like living a nightmare. Paige said her expectations coming into Married at First Sight, and her reality after marrying Chris are two different things, and she feels secondary.
MAFS: Chris & Paige – Opposing Views of Friendship
On last week’s airing of Married at First Sight, Paige Banks and Chris Williams agreed to a do-over and started again as just friends. But since then, Chris hasn’t called or texted. Nor has he taken her calls. Instead, the phone goes straight to voicemail. Paige wants to know what their friendship is going to look like.
Dr. Viviana asked Paige what she wanted out of this relationship? Paige said a simple phone call, perhaps once a day, would be a good start. But Chris Williams told the Married at First Sight expert that was too much and felt forced. Chris said he didn’t want to feel pressured to call or text. Dr. Viviana pointed out that one phone call a day is the bare minimum Paige is asking for.
Chris Williams went on to say that he is down for walks with Paige Banks or going to dinner. But phone calls and texts are not something he is willing to do. Paige, on the other hand, is not down for dinner dates. She wants something simple, such as going back to the beginning and making a basis for friendship. Dr. Viviana, Married at First Sight expert, is amazed that their views are so opposite. She wants phone calls, and Chris Williams is talking about dinner dates.
Married at First Sight: Paige Banks Receives Yet Another Blow
Paige Banks has been very understanding and forgiving about Chris’ ex-fiancee Mercedes Myrick being pregnant with his baby. But even her patience is wearing thin. Chris Williams offered to bring food for him and Paige to have Bible-study. They were making an effort to be just friends on Married at First Sight.
When Chris Williams arrived, Paige asked what verses he planned to talk about, but her husband had not prepared anything to discuss. Paige did some research in the Bible to determine what it said about friendship. And then Chris brought up his ex-fiancee. Next, the Married at First Sight star, Chris Williams, dropped another blow on Paige Banks.
Chris Williams told Paige he just bought Mercedes a new Benz. Even though she hasn’t driven a car in six years since she had a serious car accident, the MAFS star explains that she’s bringing a king or queen into the world for him, so she needs a chariot. Paige Banks understands him ensuring that his child’s mother has reliable transportation, but a Mercedes-Benz seems a little extreme, in her opinion. Will this Married at First Sight couple be able to salvage even friendship? Watch Lifetime to find out.
