    But yes, she is just so precious. And I know how much it sucks feeling "pressured" as my libido, I'm pretty sure, is actually in the negatives. But c'mon, if she hasn't touched him in 17 months, what does she expect. I'm not saying it's right, but I think he is being FAR more patient and understanding than most men. If I turned down my husband for 17 months, we wouldn't be in a good place at all.

    After Monday will they advertise a "where are they now" episode. And then "babies of the 7 year switch" and then the "long awaited wedding: Brad and Tellena."
    Haha so funny, then it will be "the mid life crisis" special episodes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    I really felt Michelle came back from the experience more full of herself and thinking she is fabulous and it's Jason's issues only that need working on. I found it cringe worthy watching her lecture him.

    17 mths!?! I think that is realllly patient of him to wait that long!! Ofcourse he had his hopes up seeing as she has returned as a stronger assertive person that also seemed alot happier and not depressed, that he would get sex as he was listening to her, got her gorgeous jewellery, they hadn't seen each other for 2 weeks.
    I'm also in the negative too, and totally understand the feeling of pressure, but 17mths my goodness! My dh is a mess if it's been two days lol, Jason is a patient saint!
    I think it's up to her as well, to work on getting back to that intimate way of things.

Just wanted to clarify as it may have made my husband out in a bad light and that wouldn't be accurate.
    It's ok, i know exactly what you mean!
    I'm sure there are a lot more of us who know what it means too ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I kinda yelled at the TV at this line 'you went on this show so you wouldn't get him back!!'

    Gosh there was really nothing interesting in that episode though. Glad I saw someone said Monday though as I missed that and assumed Tuesday again.

    I fell asleep and missed the whole thing.
    I'll catch up later.

    If Jason's a saint for going 17 mths then I'm married to God himself!
    Let me see now, baby is almost 16 mths + 9 months of pregnancy =
    25 months. That's how long it's been for us.

    Someone start a spin-off quick! Hehehe

    I have to give kudos to Channel 7 though for showing what could have been shown in 1 hour and stringing it out into 6 weeks or so. Far out that was a show that went nowhere. I watched the US version and it at least had some conflict - one couple broke up after the experiment. This was just nothing...
    AND I WATCHED IT

    I was wondering if the overseas versions would be any better.

    I saw the Aussie one is advertising for next seasons couples to audition, so looks like we are in for a 2nd season

    Wow!
    I've done a complete 180 on Brad.
    I felt sorry for him before because I thought he was struggling but now all I see is a master manipulator.
    How the hell did those therapists sit there and say nothing throughout all of that?
    At the very least, why wasn't he advised beforehand on what would be cruel and what's the kind thing to do in his situation? Teach the a$$hole something!
    They allowed Tallena to sit in the passenger seat when they knew a car crash was coming!
    To me, him ripping up the cheque was just same same as him taking back her ring, just on a grander scale. Yet Tallena fell for it. AGAIN!
    He seems to thrive on the emotional highs and lows he causes, otherwise why do it?

    Yeap Brad is disgusting, he needs a lot of help.

    That was such a gross scene to watch, made feel sick to watch how he took over the whole conversation, didn't stop to ask how Tallena is, why she didn't come home, if she is ok, what she wants, he just jumped right in with his already planned scheme/speech and steam rolled the whole situation to how he wanted it to go.
    The cheque thing, was disgusting, i ageee, it was like taking the ring off her when she is "naughty" then giving it back for "good behaviour" so icky.
    I was just as disgusted and shocked the therapists didn't utter a word, yet their faces looked how my stomach was feeling, it was as though they were just happy to make it to the end of the series too, so just washed their hands off it.
    Especially when Tallena wasn't given her "voice" which they/she were meant to be working on, so i would've thought, when she sat down that she would have been asked what had happened, what had she decided, why did she take the extra night away etc, but no, not even the therapists stopped Brad harping on to ask her.

    So ridic!
