In a bid to try and mend bridges between the pair, Jephte buys his new wife a hat and a rose — accompanied by a card saying sorry for hurting her feelings and not opening up in the beginning of their relationship.
In our exclusive clip, Jephte admits to producers: “I know I haven’t been as romantic as Shawniece wants me to be, but it’s not a side that I like to show too much.”
Shawniece then opens the card — inside an envelope addressed to “Baby Moms” — and reads it out. In the letter, Jephte says: “I’m sorry for shutting down and projecting my anger on to you.
“I’m starting to see how me trying to protect myself might be hurting you, and for that I apologize. I hope you don’t think it was intentional. From here on out be 100 per cent yourself and I’ll be here to accept you.”
But how will Shawniece react? Watch our exclusive clip from this week’s Married at First Sight below!
