Married at First Sight: Mindy Shiben and Zach Justice needed to ‘do more’ to demonstrate his commitment

Married at First Sight: Mindy Shiben and Zach Justice needed to ‘do more’ to demonstrate his commitment

Mindy Shiben and Zach Justice struggled with their relationship almost immediately after they got married in Lifetime’s Married at First Sight Season 10.

The 34-year-old figure skating coach and 32-year-old personal trainer seemed to be having fun at their wedding, but Zach Justice told Mindy that he wasn’t physically attracted to her right afterwards. The couple were not close on their honeymoon, and Zach Justice said he didn’t “feel anything” during their first kiss. After they returned to Washington, Zach refused to even move in with Mindy Shiben.

Despite her husband’s distant attitude, Mindy Shiben kept hope for their marriage and kept her promises. In the February 19 episode of Married at First Sight, “Home Is Where Your Spouse Is,” Mindy Shiben and Zach met in a park and discussed Zach’s lack of commitment.

“Long time no see,” Zach Justice said embarrassingly as he and Mindy sat together in a local park during the last episode.

The Married at First Sight couple soon entered into a deeper conversation about why Zach Justice refused even to take “small steps” towards building their commitment. Zach asked his wife how her counseling session with one of the show’s organizers, Pastor Cal Roberson, had gone.

“I was trying not to have expectations at first,” Mindy Shiben shared, “but I was really open to living together, so I was a little surprised when she decided to take a different path.

Mindy Shiben added emotionally, “The fact that I’m trying to keep my promise is taking everything I have literally.

The new bride told Lifetime’s producers that she was trying to be patient and keep her vows, but that she wouldn’t wait forever for her husband to make an effort and stop being so tired. “I need Zach Justice to do more,” Mindy Shiben said. I can’t be busy by myself.” Show me how committed you are.”

  1. If a man is not attracted to you why are y’all trying to push that woman to be with a man that does not find her attractive you have to be attracted physically to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with he obviously not attracted to her

    • Zach is gay. My ex-boyfriend acted in a similar way when we lived together. Although we did have a sexual relationship, sex was mechanical. He slept far away from me in bed, was always in front of the mirror, and fussed endlessly with his hair, and was considered a pretty boy. He finally “came out” after nine years of us living together. Tell Mindy she needs a heterosexual guy.

  2. I think Zack is gay. But I guess it really doesn’t matter if he’s just not attracted to Mindy no matter what the reason is. On top of it he’s just not really a nice person because even if he’s not attracted to a woman in this case Mindy he shouldn’t have entered into this experiment. He should’ve given it a try because he committed to it. He should’ve given time to get to know Mindy. But if you’re gay or you’re being dishonest and deceitful about the real reasons that you even went on the show and then I guess giving it a try would be a waste of time. 19 it’s a beautiful accomplished nice person. She can do a lot better each more easily find someone who really care about her. By the way Zack you are a terrible communicator. I’ve never seen anyone who says so much without communicating anything

  3. The reason I think Zack is gay is because of his behavior but also because at the wedding many of his friends were gay and knew personal physical details about him and one that made a speech joked for Mindy just not to show up at the gym when they were all there
