Dean didn’t respectfully explain how he felt in private. He waited until they were sitting in a room, with more than 20 spectators, and announced he just wasn’t all that into it.
Oh. But, there’s more.
The following week, when he (reluctantly) decided to give it another go with Tracey, Dean met up with Davina, another man’s partner, for a drink and said he would like to be with her instead.
We dicuss the mess of a relationship that is Justin and Carly on our Married at First Sight recap podcast. Post continues below.
They exchanged intimate text messages, and discussed leaving their partners for one another. They were highly flirtatious, hugged each other, and stopped just short of sticking their tongues down each others throats.
When Dean went on a date with Davina, he lied to Tracey about where he was. He left Tracey’s side at a dinner party, to sit only metres away from her, and talk to Davina about their intense attraction for one another.
Tracey found out. And then she decided to stay with him.
But, there’s more.
A few weeks later, Dean went to the infamous ‘Boys’ Night’, where he prompted a conversation about wife swapping, and said Carly, who he felt a “vibe” with, was certainly more his type than Tracey.
When no one opted to swap their current wife for Tracey, he said, “What about Tracey, guys? She’s hot… Can someone just say they want to bang Tracey? Please?”
The conversation was relayed to Tracey by multiple parties.
And still, she decided to stay with him.
To be clear – Tracey feels content with a man who left her, had an almost-affair with another woman, speaks about her derogatorily when she isn’t there and yells at anyone who tries to pull him up on it. And all within the space of one month.
How does a 34-year-old woman get to a point where her standards are that low?
It isn’t, however, just Tracey. Ashley discovered last week that her experimental husband, Troy, spoke with the other men about finding her mother attractive, and still decided to stay. Carly remained with a man for nearly a month who barely spoke to her, and when he did it was exclusively about his career.
