Married at First Sight pair Jephte Pierre and Shawniece Jackson have been together quite some time. Meanwhile, they recently squashed their relationship drama in a big way.
Married at First Sight: Shawniece Jackson & Jephte Pierre Together a Long Time
Married at First Sight fans first met Jephte Pierre and Shawniece Jackson on Season 6 of the Lifetime show in Boston. And, as fans know, it hasn’t been an easy road for these two. Right from the jump, watchers called Shawniece out for giving her new husband a lap dance on their wedding day.
As Married at First Sight watchers remember, the couple separated not long after Shawniece Jackson found out she was pregnant with the couple’s child. Jephte Pierre even dated while the couple was separated. Meanwhile, even though they’ve stayed together since then, many fans doubt their relationship.
Shawniece & Jephte Deal with Recent Drama
Even though Jephte Pierre and Shawniece Jackson have been through a lot together, recent drama seemingly pushed them to another breaking point as a couple. This time around, the drama involved the timeline for more children. Jephte is adamant about adding to their brood. And he wants to get started as soon as possible.
But, as far as Shawniece Jackson is concerned, she isn’t in any rush to expand their family just yet. She is open to having more children. However, she wants to take a slow and steady approach. Still, this caused a rift in the couple’s relationship. And, for a time, it seemed like it might be a big enough issue for the pair to call it quits.
Married at First Sight Pair Still Going Strong
Since this most recent Married at First Sight relationship drama, Jephte Pierre and Shawniece Jackson have done their best to squash split rumors. They took a family trip to New Orleans. And they even had a night out with Season 11 pairs Miles Williams and Karen Landry and Woody and Amani Randall.
In addition, the Season 6 Married at First Sight couple recently celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary – and they did it in style. Shawniece and Jephte went all out with a photoshoot – and little Laura Denise got in on it too. In a photo with his wife (and the sunset in the background), Jephte wrote “C’est nous” – which roughly translates to “It’s us”.
Certainly, more than a handful of Married at First Sight watchers feel Jephte and Shawniece might be better off if they went their separate ways. But, despite the drama they deal with, they still seem committed to making their marriage work. And, if nothing else, they certainly welcomed their fourth year together in style.
