Austin Hurd and Jessica Studer had one of the most touching weddings in the history of “Married at First Sight” in Season 10 of the Lifetime show.
However, the couple hit a few snags along the way. Jessica was worried about Austin’s continued trips to Austin Hurd for her new job as a network engineer. But more importantly, she first said “I love you”… and he didn’t respond, claiming he wasn’t ready to be that vulnerable. In the April 15th episode of Married at First Sight, everything changed when Austin declared his love to his wife on Decision Day.
Married at First Sight: Austin Hurd Told Jessica Studer He Was İn Love With Her
On the day of the decision, Austin Hurd and Jessica Studer sat down with the three First Sight experts – Dr. Viviana Coles, Dr. Pepper Schwartz and Pastor Cal Roberson – to share whether they wanted to get married or divorced. “God, this is a big decision,” said Austin nervously. “It’s a decision that will last forever, I guess, right?”
Jessica Studer went first, telling Austin Hurd confidently that she wanted to stay together. “I want our future to be together, so I want to stay married,” she told her husband.
Austin was next, and in his sweet speech to Jessica Studer, he gave a nice speech. “Jess, this means everything to me, and I can see that you love me,” he said to his wife, the star of Married at First Sight. “I feel the commitment, and I see you got my back, and it makes me realize that I love you.”
Looking surprised, Jessica Studer replied with a smile: “I love you too.” The 31-year-old engineer added: “Sure, I want to stay married to you, because I love you”.
The ‘MAFS’ Experts Were Thrilled To Hear The News
The experts were almost as excited as Jessica to hear Austin profess his love. “How does it feel to finally say that?” Dr. Viviana asked. “I’ve always known,” Jessica Studer said, laughing in excitement and relief.
“I knew you knew, but still…”. Austin Hurd walked away, perhaps thinking why he hadn’t said it before. Shortly before Decision Day, he told his dear friend that he was worried about using the “L” word because he had been heartbroken in the past after declaring his love to an ex-girlfriend.
Jessica Studer seemed like she couldn’t be happier about Austin’s decision. I’m really happy.” I’m really happy that she was able to share it today,” said the 31-year-old patient caregiver.
Austin Hurd seemed to have a weight off his shoulders, too, now that he finally said those three little words. “I feel great saying them,” she said.
While experts shared a toast with Jessica Studerand Austin Hurd, Pastor Cal told Lifetime’s producers that he always had a lot of faith in the couple.
I’m so happy for Jessica and Austin. They have built a solid foundation of communication and trust… I see a bright future for their marriage, and I couldn’t be happier.
