Married at First Sight‘s Olivia and Brett Lindsey are hanging on by a thread. And with the quarantine, it looks like things are getting worse because of the added pressure.
Married at First Sight: Olivia Wants to Make It Work
When Brett Lindsey and Olivia met on their Married at First Sight wedding day, she was excited about his love of cats. She lit up at the alter, and fans of MAFS thought they might be the perfect couple. But it only took a few minutes after the wedding to see there might be problems.
Lifetime’s Brett told Olivia from Married at First Sight that he didn’t have a lot of extra cash. She looked like she thought that was a little bit of an overshare. This did put some strain on the couple, and Olivia started digging for things they have in common.
During the honeymoon, they seemed to get along pretty well. But an immediate wall went up about their bedroom life. The Married at First Sight husband didn’t want to tell people whether they were intimate or not. And Olivia went along with it as she tried to keep her marriage together.
MAFS: Brett Lindsey Says You Can’t Be Naive
The biggest problems Brett and Olivia face is the cameras. Olivia says Brett Lindsey acts differently when he’s on camera. And he said that “you can’t be naive,” and think you won’t be different on camera.
Olivia took that as Brett’s admission of guilt and started shutting down. Fans noticed the Married at First Sight wife was very uncomfortable and upset. But she still wanted to stay with Brett.
Brett told Married at First Sight pastor Cal Roberson that they had some problems with their cats. And that he moved out of the apartment to get away from Olivia’s cat that was hurting his cat. After Olivia returned from seeing her mother, she felt upset to see that Brett left.
Married at First Sight: It’s Over for Brett & His Wife
Olivia sat down with Brett Lindsey from Lifetime’s Married at First Sight and asked him if she could do anything to change things. He looked at her and nervously said, “No, thanks,” to Olivia. She looked like she already cried all of her tears, and her face was completely blank as they ended the conversation.
Brett said there was no use drawing things out. In fact, since the quarantine was postponing things indefinitely, he wanted out. Brett left his wife on the original date of Decision Day. And he doesn’t have any interest in trying to go forward.
Olivia was sad about the situation, but there wasn’t much she could do about it. SD reported that Brett Lindsey is divorcing Olivia, and he already has a girlfriend.
