Fans say Alexis never wanted to say yes to Justin on ‘Decision Day’
Married at first sight fans were holding their breath regarding what would happen on Decision Day Season 15. It was a toss-up on which couples would choose to stay together. But in the end, Justin and Alexis chose each other…briefly. Just 12 hours after saying yes, they chose to divorce, and fans of the show claim that Alexis initially only said yes to save face.
Alexis changes her mind about staying with Justin the day after Decision Day
Experts weren’t sure what the outcome between Justin and Alexis would be. Justin apologized for being difficult at times, noting that their marriage was a rollercoaster, but he wanted to stay married. “At some point, I felt I had seen enough, enough hurt, enough isolated, enough chaotic,” she tells Justin as she reads a handwritten letter. “I can’t say yes forever, but I can say yes to time, yes to growth and yes to you,” Alexis added. “So I say yes to staying married.”
Dr. Pepper and Pastor Cal beamed with excitement as Justin and Alexis walked hand-in-hand to discuss next steps. But things quickly changed when Justin asked how they were going to move forward.
“I need time,” Alexis tells Justin. “I said yes because I see the change, I see us, but I need time to process everything and really accept. Yes just means yes to time. I didn’t want to leave us because I saw good, but I saw bad. This triggered Justin, with the feeling that Alexis was unwilling to commit. He asked her if she would have preferred to say no, which she denied.
Things go from bad to worse when they meet the other couples the next day. After arguing in front of the group, the conversation continues with a producer before an exasperated Alexis says she’s “done” and files for divorce. She apologizes to Justin the next day for the way she treated him in front of everyone, but they agree to go their separate ways.
Fans Weigh in on Alexis’ Change of Mind, Say She Always Meant to Say No
Justin and Alexis’ relationship seemed to be the most promising of the five couples. Their wedding went off without a hitch and their honeymoon was pure bliss, with everyone exchanging “I love you.” But it quickly deteriorated and fans say Alexis left early.
After Justin’s dog attacked Alexis’ dog when they first met, things went downhill. Alexis felt that Justin was unaware of his dog’s previous negative interactions with other animals. Justin eventually gave up his dog for the sake of their marriage and ended up resenting Alexis when he realized she wasn’t sure about their future.
They also clashed over lifestyle choices and struggled to communicate effectively. But many viewers felt that Alexis dragged Justin for much of the ride.
“Alexis really hates Justin but doesn’t want to look bad. She wants him to end so badly so she can avoid being the bad guy. We see you all, sis, a twitter user commented.
Another one twitter user chimed in, writing, “Alexis is super exhausting. I should have just said no. It’s irritating to see the disparagements and the condensed tone. Justin speaks clearly, but she still acts confused. Ugh.”
