MARRIED at First Sight star Virginia Combs admitted to her pilot husband Erik Lake that his work schedule is “hard,” as he “didn’t communicate” while on his first trip.
In an exclusive sneak peek of Married at First Sight, Erik, 34, and Virginia, 26, had a date night at the golf range when he returned home from his first flight as a married couple.
He told her: “I think we handled that pretty well. That’s a big thing for me just me being gone and stuff. Those are things I’ve always worried about with trying to find someone was ‘Can they handle me being gone?’ and you seem to be doing pretty well with that.
“You’ve told me multiple times so I believe you when you say that you’re okay with that.”
Erik then said in his confessional: “My job has been an issue in my past relationship so it is a worry for me she might have trouble with that because I’m doing this for the rest of my life so I’m always going to be gone. It’s just the way my job is.”
But Virginia wasn’t as “fine” as Erik thought, as she responded: “I mean communication could’ve been a little better at certain points.”
She continued in her confessional: “I would get a text here and there but it was not as much as I would like. I would’ve expected more since he’s harped on communication and was worried how I would be.
"So that was hard for me honestly because I expected a little bit more than I got.”
She then told him: “You didn’t warn me about that!”
He replied: “That’s just how it’s going to be. That’s just my job.”
Though Erik and Virginia had a strong connection and their wedding day, they have faced issues in their marriage.
Erik, who is older than Virginia, has been concerned about her hard-partying lifestyle and relationships with male friends.
As for Virginia, she was nervous about his work schedule, as he would be away for days at a time.
Married at First Sight airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Lifetime.
