A woman who told her new husband he “wasn’t manly enough” has been criticized by Married At First Sight viewers.
Veterinary nurse Morag, 31, from Essex, married new husband Luke, 36, at the start of the E4 series, with the two traveling to Switzerland last night for their honeymoon.
However, the pair got off to a rough start during the intermission, as Morag told him to “be more masculine” and the “sexual connection” just wasn’t there between them.
Luke was in tears at the comments, and many of those watching the program called her “evil and “cruel.”
Veterinary nurse Morag, 31, from Essex, was slammed by Married at First Sight viewers last night after telling new husband Luke, 36, he wasn’t ‘manly enough’ for her
After it was announced that they would be traveling to Switzerland, Morag immediately said she was not impressed with the location of their honeymoon.
Once they arrived, she said she was still struggling to find the connection she’d hoped for.
She said, “Luke and I get along really well and I really like his personality. But he’s still very reserved and that’s the opposite of what I normally go for.
“And as superficial as it sounds, his wardrobe is really starting to scare me.”
Luke was left in tears after the conversation with Morag, in which she said they had no ‘sexual connection’
She said, “They definitely suited us for a reason, so I’m hoping by the end of the honeymoon that flame might be out there somewhere.”
But as the holidays wore on, Morag still didn’t feel the relationship growing.
She said, ‘Guys I’ve dated in the past, it’s like wham bam, thanks man. But Luke is a slow burner.”
Luke told her he thought they had “a connection” and said, “I like you more as we get to know each other.
Many of those watching were stunned by Morag’s comments to Luke, saying she had been “deeply abusive.”
“I just enjoy getting to know you… but I don’t want to come across as too strong.”
Morag said, “But you have to take it easy and be a slug. Let’s make a pact, if you want to hold back, we’ll do it.’
But halfway through the honeymoon, Morag still struggled to be attracted to Luke.
She said, ‘I’m a sensitive person, but we don’t touch. I need that. It’s going to be very difficult to talk to Luke about it. But I don’t feel it.’
During the honeymoon, Morag told her husband he was “not her normal type” because she usually “spends time with people who really care about how they look”
Raising the subject over breakfast, Morag told her new husband that he was “the boy from the valleys” and “brutal and funny,” but said she wanted a “sexual” connection.
She said to him, ‘How do you expect me to like you if you just act like my friends?
“I feel like you’re not treating me like your wife and I want you to be a little more masculine. I want to like you but I need more man than boy.’
Luke was shocked and explained: “Not to be called a man is a small blow. To me, being a man is being loyal, supporting you with your back. Your kind of masculinity confuses me.
The nursing home manager was shocked by Morag’s comments and told his wife that being called ‘no man’ was a ‘low blow’
“I wanted someone to like me for who I am.”
Morag continued, “You’re not my normal type. I spend a lot of time with people who care about how they look. I need more outside right now.’
“I literally always go for the same type of guy, I go to the gym every day and these gym heads are around me. You are the opposite of that.’
Luke said, ‘It’s hard all this, I find it hard. I think it’s heavy. My biggest fear in this is that my partner will not find me attractive. And that’s exactly what happened.’
Luke later burst into tears when he told the camera that hearing Morag’s comments was ‘really bad’
He was left in tears after the conversation as he spoke to the camera: “Being told you’re not good enough really sucks. I’m not a whiner, I don’t know how we’re going to get out of this.’
Many of those watching were stunned by the discussion, with one writing, “So cheeky Morag, “be more manly” for a guy with confidence issues about how he looks, we women aren’t all a******* Luke !’
Another commented: ‘Poor Luke, imagine being a gentleman and treating your wife nice and being told you’re not manly enough?! I’m sorry Morag, jog babes.’
A third wrote: ‘No, that’s just rude. Just say he’s not your type instead of saying he’s not manly enough. WTF.’
