Married at First Sight cast member Mindy Shiben wants to divorce never-a-real-husband Zach Justice. She called him out online for ghosting her. Meanwhile, he clapped back with his version of events – throwing shade her way. Things get messy for this Lifetime couple as divorce chatter escalates.
Married at First Sight: Trouble From “I Do” for Mindy Shiben on Lifetime Show
Poop hit the fan almost immediately for Mindy Shiben and disinterested Zach Justice on MAFS. Mindy found her new husband attractive. But, he couldn’t say the same about his wife. Zach claimed he wanted to “build” attraction and then intimacy. But, mostly Zach talking in circles to Mindy and the experts without saying much of anything.
Plus, Zach Justice sabotaged their marriage in other ways, too. He refused to move in with Mindy Shiben following their honeymoon – which was itself a cold situation. Living together is critical to the Married at First Sight experiment. It allows couples to get to know one another on a deeper level after marrying as strangers. Yet, Zach refused to cooperate at every turn with Mindy and their MAFS advisors.
The final straw for Mindy was when she found out Zach Justice was chatting up one of her Married at First Sight bridesmaids behind her back. And, even though most couples wait until Decision Day to go their separate ways, Mindy Shiben threw in the towel early with Zach Justice. And no one blamed her. Now, though, it’s shocking to see they’re still married.
