Married at First Sight pair Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre may be heading for a split based on the latest from the Lifetime couple. They’ve been on the rocks before, but could this be the final straw?
Married at First Sight: Jephte Pierre & Shawniece Jackson on the Rocks?
As the only couple still together from Married at First Sight Season 6 in Boston, Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre have spent the last few years building a life together. They share a daughter – and watchers saw Shawniece give birth on the Happily Ever After spinoff season. But based on the latest from the Lifetime couple, it looks like they’re going through a rough patch.
At the root of their latest Married at First Sight argument is their view on children. In addition to Laura Denise, Jephte Pierre wants to have more kids. It turns out, Jephte wants at least four children. He comes from a big family with a lot of siblings. So it looks like he wants to replicate that with his own family. But as far as Shawniece is concerned, she wants to take things slow.
Not Seeing Eye to Eye a Deal-Breaker for MAFS Couple?
Even though Jephte Pierre loves Shawniece Jackson, he doubted whether he was “in love” with her in the past. He loves her as the mother of his child, but even pastor Calvin Roberson worried that there wasn’t anything more beyond that from Jephte. Meanwhile, it looks like them not seeing eye to eye on expanding their family could be a deal-breaker for the duo.
Shawniece Jackson revealed on a recent episode of Married at First Sight: Couples’ Cam that she isn’t happy with the amount of quality time she gets with her husband. And even though she is open to the idea of eventually having four children, she doesn’t want to feel boxed in by that decision.
Married at First Sight Wife Fires Back
With the current drama between Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre, many watchers think it may not be long until they throw in the towel. As watchers remember, the pair almost called it quits when Shawniece was still pregnant with Laura. Meanwhile, Shawniece recently fired back at all the negativity from fans.
Shawniece Jackson called out some Married at First Sight followers for “the nerve” and “audacity” of thinking they know what’s going on behind the scenes. Jephte Pierre’s wife added that things are “fu***** stressful” and that she is “tired of it”. She didn’t go in-depth into everything that’s going on currently. But she added that she will continue to enjoy her “family vacation” – and that she will be “out of the office” until July 12.
If it’s true that Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre are on the rocks, they haven’t called it quits just yet. In addition, they’ve hit rough patches before and managed to come through on the other side. Either way, this is a situation to watch as more Married at First Sight drama unfolds.
