After last nights episode it is safe to say that the experts clearly did not put in enough thought and work into matching these couples. Unfortunately, I believe only Deonna and Greg will be able to continue together, hopefully Iris and Keith as well. In terms of Amber and Matt, he is a total bachelor that knows aaaalll the right things to say on camera but a player off. My heart goes out to Amber, I personally don't believe she's too clingy, I just feel Matt is not a husband and she wanted to make it work so bad that she came off like this. Beth and Jamie are just toxic, and should not have to continue to be together because the things they put each other through have been deal breakers since the first big fight.
I think Jamie and Beth need some serious counselling if they want this to last. I realize I have only seen clips but if this is the way they act on camera, I would say he wants it more than she does. Both are terrible communicators. Jamie appears to be abusive. Like he sets her up to react and she falls right in. Beth is very self centered and is more reactionary than someone that is responsive. beth is used to getting what she wants but deals with conflict emotionally rather than facturally. I have hear Jamie say I love her more than once but people who love another dont pick at their vulnerabilities. If these two stay married, it wont last unless they get someone help them be assertive, supportive, better communicators and more understanding of each other. I think Matt and Amy are also doomed. Matt has no clue and Amy wants it to bad to make a good decision. Keith and Iris.. I think he might have a lot of work ahead breaking through her virginity issues. I question that her sexual maturity will not continue to be big issue. I dont give them much hope in working. As for the last couple, I think they have a good chance.
Amber and Matt should call it off. Matt is a player and really shouldn't have agreed to do this. Keith is a nice guy and Iris I believe is scared to let loose, suppose they stay together and she still won't give him none for another 8 weeks, then what. Keith should move on. Elizabeth and Jamie should call it off. Deonna and Greg will make it if they stay together.
I think Iris is waiting to see if they stay together before having sex. What if she has sex with Keith and they separate. If they both say stay together I think it will happen that night. I think Amber is right with suspicious thoughts why isn't he staying home more, why is he taking off his ring, you can't hang out with your buddies and crash at one of their places like you are a single guy you have a wife, how would he like it if Amber did it. Jamie and Elizabeth, they could just make it work some couple have relationships like that, they make me nervous with those arguments they have I couldn't handle someone talking to me like that, they are both guilty of that, but some people communicate that way. Greg and Deonna and just the cutest couple, I think they will make it.
I’m very disappointed in the experts when it comes to Jamie and Beth. Why don’t they explain to Jamie that Beth is insecure and that’s why she comes off as being self centered. And why didn’t the experts tell Beth all the other couples all pointed out how good they both looked on their wedding day.She needs lots of compliments. And no he should have never told her to shut up but at the same time why has’nt anyone explained to her she was out of line, when she kept talking when the guy at the track was trying to explain what they were going to be doing. I think they all will stay together on the last show but when they do the reunion only Greg and Deanna will still be together
The so called professionals are s total fail. Maybe 1 of the 4 couples might make it but yet the “professionals” keep urging them to stay together when it’s obvious (Jamie snd Elizabeth) should go there separate ways. Iris is so immature not sure they will ever be on the same page. Matt is totally clueless and Amber is very needy .The professionals really blew this one!
Elizabeth is way to foul mouthed, daddy’s girl and is not a good listener. Number one turn off. Once she and Jamie work on communication skills, then I feel this could work for them. Iris...come on stop acting with all the virginity pretentiousness....... you’ve had oral sex girl.... you had to know how to turn someone on and get turned on. If I was Keith, I would be highly offended since you are not putting those prior skills to use on him. So stop acting brand new to all of this. You know what to do and you had better be quick because time is running out. If Keith doesn’t get it from you, he will definitely find someone else to get it from. Deona has to let Greg into her heart. He is a good catch. I feel this marriage will work with a little more time. Amber is a sweetheart and wants her relationship to work. Matt seems to be hiding a lot more than what he is revealing to Amber. She should have met at least one of his family members by now. Red flag. I pray all the couples will stay together in the end. Divorce is not pretty.
I think Greg and Deonna have a good chance. Iris is blowing it with Keith. He is such a nice guy. Elizabeth is just wacko, and Amber is too needy and clingy. So I think the first couple is the only one that has a good chance.
Iris is completely out of touch with how Keith is experiencing her, especially that “secret” (WTF?). She’s full of artifice and utterly guarded. It’s couched in these child-like behaviors that she thinks people will perceive as innocent or pure, but instead it’s a mess. That she thinks a woman should be valued for not having intercourse is so gross. Like insulting. What if you were raped as a little girl? No special gift to give? The whole concept is demeaning. And she is sexually experienced, has engaged in oral— she just acts like she hasn’t. I predict Keith will leave her because she truly has issues regarding intimacy (and I don’t mean just sex). I think she is OCD rigid and she is unwilling to take a real honest look at herself. She’d rather get defensive, deflect, hide, obfuscate. She needs to marry herself and deal first.
Jamie and Elizabeth are a hot mess and don't need to be married. I think Keith should have been told about Iris before they got married. Iris is not mature enough to have a conversation about sex. Deonna is going to be single for another 10 years if she doesn't lighten up some. Matt and Amber both have self esteem issues, they wil not work. All these couples have issues so next. The profession need to do a better job in putting people together.
Deonna and Iris -These ladies make me sick they have these foine men and NOT doing nothing. Look at Deonna how can you wear those ugly sweats to bed ugh! Put some makeup on your face girl try matching your clothes get it together Greg is a nice guy why are you acting so cold!? Iris if your virginity meant so much to why are you on the show?? You wanted to brag about it that why ... you thought it was gonnna make you special get over yourself and hop on that tall glass of water call Keith. I know plenty of women and I mean plenty who would know how to handle a tall sexy man Like Keith????
I hope these individuals do not feel pressured to re-commit, but since I don’t know of any contractual issues, I will say that the men (except Greg) seemed to appear highly uncertain, but said yes anyway. Just sayin’. Deonna and Greg are still the ones I think have the best chance. Greg’s opening up about his childhood seemed to have an effect on Deonna. Hope this will help her to open up more. I will reiterate: Beth and Jamie do NOT belong together. He seems to be a bit mesmerized by her quirkiness; however, how long will this volley last? Also, he has already called her a ‘name.’ Wow. Amber is too needy, and Matt seemed more immature than ever tonight (8/14). Uh-uh. The expert’s talk with Iris may have helped, as at the end, well...things seemed to be heating up. I think they still have a chance, and I finally understand’s Keith’s hesitancy toward consummating the marriage.
I really think Deonna and Greg have the best chance out of all the couples! I love their relationship! Elizabeth and Jamie don’t stand a chance because Elizabeth is so self centered and can’t even see that she is ruining the relationship. She does not see that she causes most of the drama that’s in the marriage, but blames EVERYTHING on Jamie! I can’t stand a person would doesn’t own up to their own part in a problem. She will never grow or find love if she doesn’t change.
Elizabeth needs lots of help. She brings chaos to a situation that could work well with a guy like Jamie. He will get tired of the see-saw emotional merry-go-round, I think. Their relationship is extremely volatile, and this will work against them for sure. Elizabeth seems selfish and doesn’t choose her words lovingly. She will push Jamie to lash out too.
Amber just seems way too desperate to make things work, and Matt...I can’t tell yet. They don’t seem to match, even though tonight at the month’s anniversary, Matt seemed to care. Ambers speech seems ‘scripted’ at times. Matt should have applied to this program at a later date when he is more stable.
Iris needs to stop!!! She & Keith were my favorite couple at first, but I have never heard ‘virginity’ used so much in my life from a 27-year old woman who now admits she has participated in oral sex... WHAT??? She exudes sexiness via her dress, her talk, her positive and family- oriented forecasting of the future, teases, but...there’s a problem somewhere. ...There’s onions, celery potatoes, meat...but not soup yet.
OK. At first, I thought Deonna and Greg would not make it due to Deonna’s cold demeanor. Now, I feel they have shown the MOST growth, and I feel they have the BEST chance of making it work for real. I hope they can move forward, now that Deonna is showing more of herself. She seems to be more genuinely loving in public than in private (when friends are around/ at the bowling alley, etc.). Greg is mature and patient, and he deserves someone real. Come on up, Deonna...you’re getting there!
I enjoy the show and always hope they take the matching and guidance seriously. My favorite couple are Matt and Amber. I want to see him loving her.
I think Deonna and Greg are doing it the right way communicating with each other. Elizabeth and Jamie will not make it, it does seems Jamie got married to have sex all the time because nobody else wants to. Iris just seems to be to immature for Greg. The experts should not have put those 2 together. To tell the truth they shouldn't have pick her. Matt is messing around and don't want to be married for real.
Deonna and Greg have the best chance of all of the couples. Both are mature, stable adults. Deonna hasn’t been in a relationship in 10 years, so it is taking her some time to warm up, but Jamie Otis wasn’t attracted to Doug and would tell him not to touch her initially and they are very happily married 5 years later. Each week that goes by Deonna’s walls are coming down and her trust is coming up. Greg is patient and a good guy, but I think he has some control issues we haven’t seen yet, because he’s been working so hard to win her over. They are my favorite couple so far.
Iris and Keith - she needs to realize that some things that she was used to as an only child just won’t work in a marriage. If Keith can be patient with her during her process, I believe they can make it work. The virginity is a non-issue because again there are couples who have been previously sexually active and choose to delay sex during this experiment, again I point to Jamie Otis - they went the entire show with no sex because she had trust issues.
Matt & Amber - I just don’t think Matt was truly ready for marriage. I think he thought he was, but he wasn’t. I feel bad for Amber.
Jamie & Elizabeth - such a volatile relationship, they have to learn how to communicate and fight fair. If they do this, they can make it. For now, I’m concerned it will not last.
I like the slow and study of Deonna & Greg .
Deonna & Greg seem to have the best chance at success. The other couples could benefit from counseling. I like Jamie but was disappointed at his reaction when questioned by Elizabeth about his parents' divorce. He is an adult and should be able to communicate his feelings without being upset, especially since the divorce took place years ago. He set their blow up in motion with his reaction to the questions. His wife has a right to get to know ALL about him and vice versa. But her reaction to him was unbelievably immature. Maybe they both should have worked on their own personal issues before seeking marriage. Whether Amber & Matt make it or not, she will eventually find herself alone if she does not start thinkly logiclly - - having children in your mid-thirties is far from old. Slow down girl!
I believe that Deonna and Greg will make it. Keith is a full-grown man and Iris needs to grow up. There is a no hope for the other 2 couples. Too many problems.I enjoy this show.
Jamie is a nice guy and a good catch. Elizabeth is a loose cannon who’s impossible to please. He deserves much better.
I know one thing, Jamie and Elizabeth will definitely not make it. Elizabeth is childish and weird. Her daddy has ruined her for any man. Poor Jamie. He's handsome, patient, and normal and deserves a good woman.
Iris and Keith are my favorite couple and I hope they make it. The only obstacle is if Iris makes her virginity an obstacle. I understand her virginity is very important to her and it should be, but she can't let it get between her and Keith. She can still be affectionate with her husband.
I like Deonna and Greg and I'm on the fence about them. They can definitely make it, if Deonna lets her guard down and Greg into her 10 year one woman show. Greg seems like an awesome guy and she should let him compliment her as much as he wants.
I want Amber and Matt to make it. I really like Amber and want her to find her soulmate, but I think Matt is going to ruin it. His lack of putting down roots and family connections is going to put a wedge in their relationship. I don't think he will take it seriously until it's too late.
I hoping and praying for all couples. I like Keith and Iris but she need to lay off of him. She going to loose him if she do not.
I think Amber and Matt have the best chance of any couple to make it. Amber is absolutely not going to give up on him. Matt has not been able to have a relationship for all the years he's been a traveling basketball player, so he's really just a little overwhelmed that, so suddenly, quickly and effortlessly, now he has someone so dedicated and devoted to him who really wants a solid marriage. I think that's what he wants too, and once he realizes this dream could be true, he will settle into another career and they will fall madly deeply in love and make many children who are medium sized. :-)
Elizabeth is going to ruin it for her and Jamie. She has been impossibly spoiled and enabled by her father, and is a deeply selfish diva whose world revolves only around herself and all that the world owes her. She won't be ever able to truly love Jamie unless he becomes some sniffling, adoring doormat like her dad. Thank God Jamie has a true sense of self and is a mature man who seems to be at best just amused by Beth's moody diva antics...at this point anyway. It sure won't be novel or fun for a lifetime! I like everything about Jamie, as he handles himself and shares his feelings perfectly...and I love-love-love his super neat home! (My kinda guy!) Doesn't he look like a much more handsome version of Jerry Seinfeld?
I agree that Iris is waaaaaaay too stuck on her virginity kick. Enuf already...we're all bored with it. She can't be even warm or cozy physically, it seems, and her husband Keith is being so patient that each day takes sex off the table even further. He should give her a 1-hour massage with lots of kisses and see if she'd melt into a real woman who actually wants a man. If not, move on and find someone who is crazy about him in all ways, not just a chipper buddy/pal to be perky for the cameras.
Deonna and Greg won't make it because Deonna is not being her real self; she is fake and always just acting a role. She is so guarded from being partner-less for so long that her emotional, feeling self is deeply buried. All flip remarks and cartoonish facial expressions. Even her eyes look dead inside. If you notice, she ONLY has decent or nice things to say to the camera...NEVER personally to Greg himself. The guy would melt for a kind word, thoughtful deed or soft touch. Greg seems like an awesome, open, true, mature person very able and needing to share his emotions with her, but is getting totally gypped by her inability to give or share. He should move on to someone much more deserving of his wonderful gifts.
Greg and Deonna get my vote. They've got religion.
Iris isn't EVER going to let go of that virginity. Her hymen is like another member of the cast or something...I wouldn't be surprised if they start listing it in the credits. Run, Keith! Run!
Elizabeth is nuts, not "quirky." Also,she should not be allowed to ever buy that horrible shade of lipstick ever again.
Matt has that "WTF have I gotten myself into???" look . He's going to run.
Elizabeth has a very foul mouth and l Don't think Jamie will put up with her much longer! I'm disappointed with lris the way she keeps bringing up her Virgenity to Keith and to everyone else! I really like Keith and after tonight's episode when she got angry because Keiths friends drank her lemonade and that was just childish! Amber needs to grow up before Matt gets fed up with her! The only couple that will make it is Deonna and Greg because of the way they share their faith! The only issue l have with Deonna is she shouldn't have told Greg to stop complementing her all the time!! She is very Blessed to have a husband that does That!
Iris is a delusional, spoiled brat and will push Kieth away. Elizabeth and Jamie have too many protruding pathologies. Matt wants to sprint from way too needy Amber and Deonna had better warm up soon (with all of her rules in tact or not) with her match. It is all cringeworthy. Each thinks he or she is a “super catch” and thinks that it all should be a fairy tale process. But why do we watch? Basically, we need and are “entertained” by watching men and women act out their weaknesses in ways more horrific and embarrassing than we do. Sad, but the nature of TV and our culture writ large.
I think Deonna and Greg will make it, same with Iris and Keith. I thought maybe Amber and Matthew might, but I think she has a control issue. And Elizabeth and Jamie....? No. So far, though, I think these couples have the best chances out of all the other seasons.
So tired of her
I think Greg and Deonna will make it.
Predict Jamie and Elizabeth and Matt and Amber won't make it.
I have high hopes in deonna and Greg
I really don't t think any of them will make their marriage work . They all don't match partners . I would have matched Amber with Jamie . Deonna with no one due to see is far too fussy & high maintenance !
Matt should have been matched with a Tall woman there's too much of a difference in height.
Iris is strange doesn't match Keith . Iris is too old fashioned.
Elizabeth is high maintenance as well & weird .

I believe this couple have the best chance of a successful marriage based on both having strong religious beliefs and morals.
