Married at First Sight couple Chris Wiliams and Paige Banks had a roller coaster ride of a relationship. Williams exhibited a bevy of red flags immediately on the show, expressing several outdated viewpoints when it comes to what he wants in a partner.
“I want a woman that is not after me for my money. She is intelligent, submissive, sexy, good in bed, and a freak. And that seems like finding a needle in a haystack,” Williams told Married at First Sight producers. He later expressed his intention of getting Banks pregnant as soon as possible.
Later, he admitted to her that his ex was pregnant with his child, and that he still loved his ex and wanted to get back together with her and raise his child. He continued to yank Paige Banks around despite that confession.
