Married At First Sight groom Andrew confronted runaway bride Lauren about ditching him on their honeymoon.
The couple were reunited for the first time since the honeymoon and sat down with relationship psychologist, John Aiken.
“I was thinking somebody has not liked the look of me so much that they have taken off within hours... it's a flat out rejection,” he said, just moments before seeing her.
“I tried to reach her and I didn't hear anything. I don't necessarily need an apology but an explanation might be good. It's had a big effect on me.”
The mother-of-one explained she was stressed on the day and didn’t think they shared anything in common.
“It’s been very stressful... I wasn't myself on the day and I was a lot more out of sorts than I normally would be,” she said.
“I was hoping for someone who had been through a broken marriage and had had kids. People can show empathy but some people don't get it until you've had kids yourself.”
Despite her hesitation, Lauren appeared willing to give their relationship another chance. “I can understand if he wouldn’t want to… I think I’ve burned him in a way. It would be difficult for somebody to get past that,” she said.
Andrew was less open-minded, deciding against a reunion.
“The things that you need to rely on in a team mate weren't there at that stage and they might not be there again,’ he said.
Although he was unwilling to give her a second chance on the show, he admits the pair still speak!
“We're still in touch,” he told TheFIX.
“We text and have a laugh. It wasn't the coolest thing to do, but she did apologise.”
