I finally have time to do a MAFS Boston recap and I am excited to see what is going on now. It seems like all the couples this season were poorly matched. So I can’t wait to see if ANYONE is getting along. I mean, we over halfway through!
Katina & Olajuwon
Katina goes to see Jasmina and Michael to talk about her marital problems. It seems that after last week’s dinner party from hell Olajuwon asked to see her phone and there was a dating app on it. So now he doesn’t trust her. Well, YEAH! She is upset by Olajuwon’s tone. Again. Katina is very upset. Michael goes to talk to Olajuwon for his side of the story. Olajuwon has no interest in talking to Katina. That would be way too mature for Olajuwon. As you can see from the photo above, Katina never looks happy when she is around Olajuwon. Later, it seems that these two have made up.
Katina talks to her sister-in-law and admits they still have not had sex. She also talks about how angry he gets with her. There are plenty of things she likes about Olajuwon though. That is a good start. It sounds like she is in this for the long run. Later, they do taco Tuesday together. It’s cute. They are back to being good. It’s sweet.
Lindsey & Mark
Mark is a scheduler. He is using a white board to work through their wants and needs. Lindsey needs some time with Mark where he shuts his phone off. That’s hard for a realtor. It appears that Mark is a picky eater. And he is tight with money. So when they go grocery shopping together, we learn that he doesn’t like most basic fruits and vegetables. And he is already whining to the camera about how much money Lindsey is spending on groceries. Just wait, dude. I just got back from grocery shopping for the first time in weeks. I left without buying toilet paper because one pack was SEVENTEEN DOLLARS and the other pack was over TWENTY DOLLARS! I’ll use Kleenex or paper towels, or my bare hand before I pay that! I could not live with a guy who regulated what I buy at the grocery store.
Ut Oh, these two are fighting again. Apparently, Mark moved her clothes from the washer to the dryer. It seems like they couldn’t go in the dryer. Now they are ruined. How the hell was he supposed to know that? Apparently she has told him not to touch her laundry. Lindsey has a whole lot of examples of how Mark is inconsistent and doesn’t follow through with things they agree on. Lindsey seems completely over him. Again. She is pretty inconsistent herself. Mark meets with his friend to discuss his marriage. Suddenly,
Lindsey is suddenly back in the marriage. She has a photographer coming to make a “family photo with the cats wearing shop costumes. Mark wants to talk through some problems. But, Lindsey is not receptive. Then, Lindsey flees the apartment. The photographer arrives while Lindsey is gone. Lindsey comes back to the apartment to pack her stuff. She’s done. Mark convinces her to stay for the photo shoot. She needs to at least run a brush through he hair.
Noi & Steve
Noi insists on Steve washing her dog Sushi. She thinks he needs to get used to taking care of a dog. She also wants to see his parenting skills. Steve is great with Sushi. I think he has bought more gifts for Sushi than he has for Noi. Noi doesn’t want to do any household chores. She’s getting to be a bit obnoxious. Now she is saying that she doesn’t feel ready to move in together after decision day. Girl, you realize you are already living with him now, right? She says she is not ready to combine their lives. Steve points out that means she is not willing to commit to their marriage. She’s an idiot. Steve should say no on decision day.
Noi goes to talk with Siracha. She has many nice things to say about Steve. Noi claims that she does most of the housework. But, Steve doesn’t do as much as he should. Especially since he doesn’t work. Noi doesn’t want to share finances with Steve. She is so concerned with money. She wants Steve to get a job before decision day. Steve talks to his sister-in-law and he talks about how great their anniversary date was. Then, he tells her about Noi not wanting to move in after decision day. Also, Noi is posting disturbing crap on social media.
Jasmina & Michael
Apparently, Jasmina doesn’t know how to drive. Michael gives Jasmina a driving lesson. She’s horrible. Her dog is ADORABLE though. Jasmina and Michael seems to be getting along much better. However, Jasmina tells her mother that she is not physically attracted to Michael. However, these two seem to be getting along fairly well. Michael is making dinner and Jasmina is the sous chef. It’s cute. She is very touchy feely with him, so I’m not so sure she isn’t attracted to him. Michael admits he could put more into the relationship.
This was a pretty slow episode. It was lots of them recapping their issues to their friends. I think this may be the first season where they all choose divorce.
