Married At First Sight 2024: Richard and Andrea’s First Fight Brings them to Tears as Their Loved Ones Intervene

Married At First Sight star Richard Sauerman broke down in floods of tears as he and his wife Andrea Thompson had their first row during Tuesday’s episode.

The couple got off to a fairytale start after first laying eyes on each other at the altar, and have gone from strength-to-strength ever since.

However, they reached a hurdle after Andrea, 51, felt ‘disrespected’ by Richard, 62, over comments he made at the second commitment ceremony about their intimacy.

She admitted to putting up a wall and the pair got into a row over Andrea spending more than two hours talking to her friends on the phone rather than being with him.

Richard admitted he felt like she wasn’t attracted to him any more as he broke down in floods of tears as Andrea’s friend Kate Maree and his daughter Roxy tried to counsel the couple.

He explained how he felt that Andrea wasn’t ‘trying’ to move on with him and said he felt ‘let down’ by her behaviour as he struggled to break through her ‘wall’.

Speaking to their loved ones about the difficulties, Richard revealed: ‘I feel a bit sad, it’s been a tough day for both of us, and a tough day for me. I just want to say that I’m hoping having you guys here will be a positive intervention for us.’

He went on: ‘We started off with a bang, it was a real high, and then it sort of petered off. Andie admitted there is a bit of a wall when it comes to romance and intimacy with me, and I’m more into her than she’s into me. I don’t understand what’s going on.’

When asked why things had taken a downward turn after such a strong start, Andrea got honest about how she had felt about Richard talking ‘inappropriately’ at the commitment ceremony.

She said:┬á‘Roxy, it’s your dad and it’s awkward but the second commitment ceremony, your dad said some very inappropriate things. He was very open with sharing our intimacy and the way he said some things, I just went – I felt disrespected.┬á

‘So I’ve put a bit of a block in, put up a wall a little bit, but I want to not have that up and I was working on trying to pull it down.┬á

‘I’m here, I’m trying and Richie was cold to me and saying I wasn’t trying, and I was going out of my brain like I am!’

Of their row the night before, Richard broke down in floods of tears as he admitted he didn’t feel like Andrea liked him anymore in a heartwrenching moment.

Through tears, he said:┬á‘She basically spent the evening on her own, doing her own thing and talking to her friends, so I don’t know what’s different but it seems to be the same. From my point of view, Andie is not into me at all anymore.’

However, with the help of their loved ones, the couple made steps forward as Andrea admitted she ‘adores’ Richard and wanted to try and ‘fix’ things.

Shedding some positive light, Richard’s daughter Roxy told them: ‘If last night is the only big fight that’s happened, then that’s not bad.’

Richard said: ‘I see a future in this,’ while Andrea added:┬á‘I do want to try, because that man is a beautiful man.’
