During the latest episode of Married at First Sight, Season 15 couple Alexis and Justin encountered a violent situation when they were trying to introduce their pets.
Justin’s larger dog Maya attacked Alexis’ smaller dog Newton and caused an injury to his eye. The incident scared Alexis and put her off toward Maya, who Justin sent to a school for a few weeks to teach her how to be less aggressive.
When Alexis and Justin sat down with Pastor Cal to discuss how to overcome the situation as a couple, Alexis insisted that Justin get rid of Maya if she felt uncomfortable around her.
Justin asked for another chance and said the decision to give Maya up would be tough for him, and Alexis snapped at him by saying she thought he had already made his mind up to get rid of Maya if she said so.
MAFS viewers on social media have judged the ugly situation.
In an Instagram post replaying the discussion clip about what to do, viewers slammed Alexis for being callous and unreasonable and condemned sending the dog away. They also called her out for using this situation as a way out of the relationship.
