There’s no surprise that Jacob Harder and Haley Harris decided to go their separate ways on this season of Married of First Sight.

For eight weeks, fans have struggled to watch this couple try and get on the same page despite their major differences in personality and communication styles.

Whether you were on Team Haley or Team Jacob, the 39-year-old IT professional has a message for the haters after his marriage to Haley came to an end on Decision Day.

Jacob Harder has a message for the haters

Although leaving the experiment in divorce seems like a failure, it’s clear Jacob is keeping a positive mindset.

“Thank you for all the love and support,” he wrote in a post on his Instagram story. “And to my haters ? I hope tomorrow is better for you. Let’s try and elevate each other and not spread hate.”

“Negative energy is infectious and can ruin your day but positivity is just as contagious. Be your best you but live by your own rules and not everyone’s idea of what “should” be.”

It’s clear Jacob lives by his words as throughout the process, he stayed true to his love of the 80s and homebody tendencies.

One of the haters could be another husband

If there’s anyone that’s been vocal about Jacob’s relationship with Haley, it was fellow Atlanta husband Chris Williams.

Jacob first got Chris’ attention on social media when he appeared alongside Paige and Briana on Married at First Sight Unfiltered.

The show typically weighs in on the current season, and it’s clear Chris didn’t like what Jacob had to say about him.

While Chris has vowed to not appear on the show due to comments about his marriage from host Jamie Otis, it’s clear he’s still keeping up with the show.

After catching wind of Jacob’s words about him, Chris lashed out on social media, saying that, “It’s a known fact that when your segment comes on people don’t care because your a** is boring!”

It didn’t end there, Chris also had some choice words for Jacob when he heard about the bracelet incident with Haley.

“You can’t buy a $800 gift and ask for it back but feel the need to comment on me buying a car! We are in two different classes my friend,” Chris mocked on social media.

The most explosive reunion yet is set for this Wednesday, and the cast is back months later to dish on what happened after Decision Day.

What do you think will happen at the reunion?

Married at First Sight airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Lifetime.

  1. While I don’t dislike Haley, I am definitely team Jacob. What I noticed after the wedding night, was that Haley wanted nothing to do with him and she shut down. I felt that She never really gave Jacob a chance. She did not like the fact that he still loved the eighties. And the bracelet she never wanted it because it came from him. Maybe she felt obligated but I don’t understand why she kept it. She should have just given it back post taste. Hailey slept with Jacob and then basically shut down. She said she slept with him because that’s what you’re supposed to do. Haley lies a lot. I hope Haley and Jacob fine people that are meant for them.

    • It’s not that she didn’t like the fact that he love the 80’s – it’s that she couldn’t relate or had no reference to them. When she told him she didn’t know what he was referring to, or that she didn’t know the movie/song/whatever, instead of attempting to use something more relatable, he’d just put it off as “that’s just me”. I love the 80’s but I don’t base my world around it – I can and do talk and make humor around current things. But when I’m in the car, I’ll belt out 80’s songs. I just wonder how much he was urged by staff to concentrate on his 80’s fetish and how much of that is how he relates to everyone in his life – which could explain why he’s single. Other than his horrendous, nauseating table manners. That alone would turn me off. Slurping eggs with a serving spoon. BLECH.

  2. Haley is very passive-aggressive. Jacob is up-front about his feelings, sincere, and honest and Haley was all about playing games. She did everything she could to ruin the relationship and then in perfect passive-aggressive fashion pretended to the be the victim and was acting like “what happened, what went wrong, I did everything I could.” I also noticed she rolled her eyes constantly at Jacob and showed nothing but contempt for him. I think in general she’d be a very difficult person to get along with.
