Married at First Sight: Henry Rodriguez on Being Christina’s Match
Henry Rodriguez shared his thoughts about his former spouse Christina and their experimental union. The Married at First Sight celeb believes his ex-wife is not compatible with him. He said their differences made their marriage more challenging to keep.
Henry Rodriguez said he and Christina are complete opposites of each other. The MAFS celeb said they have “very different” characteristics, making it hard to work on their marriage. Henry pointed out that it’s possible for two opposing personalities to work, only if they “complement each other”. If not, then it’ll likely cause more problems, just like what he and Christina experienced as a married couple.
Married at First Sight’s Henry Rodriguez said being matched with Christina “made more sense on paper” than in real life. He added that he somehow understands why the experts think they’re a match when in reality, they’re not. Still, Henry tried to make it work with Christina but the stress was just too much for them to handle.
Henry Not Blaming Christina
Even though his union did not work out, Henry Rodriguez is not putting the blame on Christina. The Married at First Sight cast member reiterated that it is not solely Christina’s fault at all, adding that he too contributed to the “demise” of their marriage.
Henry Rodriguez admitted he’s “not the easiest person to deal with”. The MAFS celeb said he’s “hard to read” and “not emotionally responsive,” which likely made things extra difficult for Christina. Still, Henry revealed some of Christina’s red flags that somehow made him realize things will not last between them.
The Married at First Sight celebrity said he doubted Christina’s readiness for a commitment. He learned that she just got out of a 5-year-relationship prior to their wedding, which is a major red flag for him. Henry also said their guests at the reception told him about the “toxic” and “crazy” things Christina and her ex did to each other, which she later confirmed.
Married at First Sight Star No Regrets about Marrying Ex-Wife
Despite everything that happened, Henry Rodriguez doesn’t regret marrying Christina. The Married at First Sight husband pointed out that it’s a “learning experience” for both of them. Henry added that he will never look back and say being married to his now ex-wife was a waste of time.
Henry also said that the “once in a lifetime opportunity” he had with Christina changed him into a better person. He now hopes that the experiences he had on the show will help him become a good husband in the future.
