Married at First Sight Spoilers: Erik Lake Puts Virginia Coombs on the Spot
Fans of Married at First Sight have watched Erik Lake and Virginia Coombs with interest due to their different maturity levels and lifestyles. Spoilers for this week’s episode reveal Erik asking Virginia point-blank why she wanted to do the show. Surely not what the new bride was expecting from her husband.
Virginia Coombs looks away at Erik Lake’s question, and MAFS viewers don’t see a response in the preview. But, they are curious about Virginia’s motives considering her lifestyle and her seeming unwillingness to change. In a recent episode of Married at First Sight, Virginia flat-out told Erik she didn’t intend to change her partying ways.
Erik Lake shows plenty of patience dealing with his younger wife. Still, enthusiasts speculate if he’s more of a father figure to her rather than a spouse. Erik is frequently seen telling Virginia Coombs how things need to be done in their marriage because he’s “done it before.” Fans of the Lifetime series Married at First Sight wonder if he needs to lighten up a bit until Virginia is settled into their relationship.
Married at First Sight: Erik Got More Than He Expected
Erik Lake, Married at First Sight husband, tells viewers of the program that Virginia Coombs is more than he asked for. Certainly, they have experienced an incredible journey with their almost instant connection to each other. Erik said since the show began that he hoped for his new bride Virginia to be the love of his life.
Erik wanted to find the love of his life, and he’s not shy about showing his care and concern for Virginia on Married at First Sight. Previously, Erik Lake said marriage is the ultimate relationship, and he and Virginia Coombs are one now. Viewers see how affectionate Virginia can be, and she initiates kissing and affection as much as Erik.
But, concerned Married at First Sight fans think Erik Lake might be a little too overbearing with his demands for constant contact. Virginia Coombs recently went off for four days to a wedding, and her husband said he hoped she missed him as much as he did her. However, on her return home on MAFS, he mentioned that they talked or texted every hour or two, and some followers said he expected too much.
Virginia Needs Space on MAFS
During a recent episode of Married at First Sight, Virginia Coombs and Erik Lake talk about their lives together. Virginia told her husband that she needs space sometimes and time to be by herself. Erik points out that his job gives that to her because he’s off flying 15 days a month. Virginia expressed concern that her need for space wouldn’t fall when he was already gone.
Erik Lake joked that he’d make sure to work on the days she needs space if she’d let him know when that would be. Commenters on Married at First Sight note that he seems too controlling for Virginia’s personality, and they hope he can loosen up a bit. Virginia Coombs took exception to Erik, asking her to text him when she arrived after making plans to catch up with friends.
As a married couple, Erik explained that he didn’t want to control her. But rather express his care and concern for her welfare. Accidents happen, and Erik Lake said he wants to know she arrived safely. Virginia Coombs thinks it’s too much because she was a teenager the last time she checked in with anyone. Will this Married at First Sight couple overcome their different personalities to make a good marriage in this Lifetime experiment? Tune in Wednesday nights to find out.
