Well, we weren't prepared for that. But we were prepared for some tears in last night's Married at First Sight Australia episode.
After exposing his insecurities and declaring his love for Tracey, Married At First Sight's cheating groom Dean was left shattered and in tears when Tracey declared she was going to leave him in their final vow ceremony.
"Tracey, after all we've been through and all we learned ...," Dean tells Tracey, choking back tears as he reads his vows to her while standing in the paddock of a random farm. "I now know that I love you and I want to have a future together."
Tracey had a hard decision to make: Should she give him the benefit of the doubt and hope she can find that trust one day? Or walk away leaving him humiliated just like he did to her.
She chose the latter.
"You don't deserve me...I'm so sorry, Dean," Tracey declared.
It was followed by a lot of "I don't know what to say"'s from Dean, and a quick departure from them both.
Was this Tracey's plan all along after the affair? To wait until Dean developed feelings only to dump him as some form of payback? Well played, if so, but we'll never know for sure.
"Standing in front of you is a woman who has understood you and all your BS," Tracey told her husband. "I feel like you have met your match in me. This experiment has reminded me that when I love a person I must not forget to take care of myself, too. That I trust too easily. This experiment has shaken me awake … and helped me see what I'm worth. And unfortunately, Dean. You don't deserve me."
"I'm so sorry, Dean. But I have too many doubts to trust you," Tracey said. "With so much murky water under the bridge, I just can't continue this relationship with you."
Hard luck Dean. It's a good reminder that once trust is broken, it's damn near impossible to get back.
