“I realized that I just did not do a good job at receiving help,” Miles says in the clip. “And I still don’t do a good job at receiving help but then I live with somebody and I’m like, ‘You know what? I can lean on somebody,” He added that being an educator and someone who is constantly always the one helping others led to him not knowing how to accept the same type of support. Karen has been open about having to learn to show vulnerability.

Karen shared a snapshot of the couple behind-the-scenes with the Browns and another couple. She captioned the promotional shot, “We did a really cool thing with some really cool people. S/O to @blacklove for allowing us to authentically tell our story. I hope it speaks to someone.”

Fans previously believed the couple split based on perceived social media clues

The Married at First Sight couple had a trip to Punta Cana planned for Spring 2022, which Miles spoke about on his Instagram page. But in an update, he announced that he would be canceling the bae-cation to focus on his mental health. He was open on the show regarding his experiences with clinical depression.

In the post, per Screen Rant, Miles said he needed a reset to “relentlessly focus” on his mental health and wellbeing, captioning the post: “Peace & healing to all this holiday season.” Many wondered whether the couple were still together, as their social media pages were not featuring one another as much.

Whether or not they were having actually marital issues at the time, one fan on Reddit noted that the couple is “contractually obligated to Kinetic” the production company that produces MAFS and its spinoffs that Karen and Miles appear in. The fan continued: “So…if things did go sour, they may have to wait to have it documented.”
