While some couples seemed rock-solid — like Cathy and Josh, and Stacey and Michael —there were plenty that seemed on flimsy ground but decided to stay on anyway. Tash was still super uninterested physically in Amanda. Poppy remained unable to reckon with a few weeks away from her kids. Aleks was over Ivan's childishness and didn't know if she really fancied him. Hayley and David's massive fight took up most of the episode.
David's complaint that he was lumped with Hayley, a "recovering drug addict and a smoker", had her in tears, and had people online calling him out for rubbing her past in her face.

I make fun of these people for being on this stupid show, and I make fun of myself for watching it and defending it by being “ironic”, but that bullshit with bringing up someone’s past to beat them with it is dangerous bullshit that needs to be stamped on, hard! #MAFS #mafsau

What a horrible thing to say. Someone who has recovered from drug addiction is a strong person, to be applauded at pushing through and conquering a horrible demon. Not belittled & mocked for their struggle. #MAFSAU

David is an asshole. The truth is that he can't get over Hayley's past, and he's using any excuse to pull out of the relationship. He's being unnecessarily cruel. He needs to stop being such a judgmental prick. #MAFS #mafsau #MarriedAtFirstSightau
