Married At First Sight’: Lauren Breaks Down, Reveals She Asked Orion For A Divorce


In the only-available “Married at First Sight” sneak peek from ET, Lauren sobs over her union with Orion.
The situation between Lauren and Orion is about to blow up. In an exclusive video from Wednesday’s episode of Married at First Sight, which ET exclusively has access to, Lauren sobs to a castmate about the problems in her marriage.

Friction between the newlyweds has been growing since they tied the knot, and it seemingly reaches its boiling point in today’s episode. In ET’s exclusive sneak peek, Lauren shares her frustrations about Orion with Clare, telling her co-star, “I be trying to hold it together in front of y’all. I’m trying so hard because I did feel myself falling for him, and now I’m like, ‘Well, what the f**k?'”

She continues, “And then today, I’m trying to go downstairs to get my stuff, and I overhear him saying that he felt like I didn’t have his back. It’s just, there are things that happened to me that I’m like, ‘I can give you grace, I know that wasn’t your best self. I know that we are working through this.’ But for this, he’s like, ‘No, you attacked my community, my culture.'”

“And I’m just like, how many more ways can I say I’m sorry? How many more times can I tell you that I’m researching and doing what I need to do to navigate this intercultural relationship that I’ve never done before because I care so much about you? And you’re down here saying that I don’t have your back and I’ve failed the marriage?”


Clare attempts to reassure Lauren, noting, “He’s seeing all of the wrong things. He’s seeing all of the negative things. It’s just interesting how hard he’s being. Like, I cannot even fathom.”

Feeling visibly upset, Lauren admits that things have reached a standstill and reveals that following a heated dispute, she requested a divorce from Orion. “It’s simply very difficult. I simply can’t stand not being understood. “I don’t think I’m improving the situation because we recently had a heated argument during which I yelled at him. He told me he felt like I failed both of them and the marriage, so I asked for a divorce,” she says. “And today, I removed my ring. I’m furious. I’m simply so angry.”

“This is like the most difficult thing probably to ever deal with,” Clare laments, to which Lauren tearfully agrees.

“Honestly, other than losing my mom, I think this is the most difficult — physically and emotionally — thing I’ve ever done in my life,” Lauren shares.

Married at First Sight airs on Lifetime on Wednesdays at 10/9c.
