Unfortunately, Mark and Lindsey’s marriage has been on a depressing downward trend spiral since the doomed date night Mark held during their honeymoon. Even though Married At First Sight fans were overwhelmed by Lindsey’s over-the-top personality by the end of her wedding day, Mark conveyed that he was eager to jump into a relationship with his arranged wife no matter how unpredictable she might be. After getting married, Mark and Lindsey’s relationship moved fast, which prompted the husband to request they slow their roll as they get to know each other. Fans believe this inspired Lindsey to punish her husband by fighting with him in public and revealing his secrets on TV. Fans think they discovered the reasons why Mark hasn’t left Lindsey yet despite her bad behavior.

Regrettably, Married At First Sight fans agree that Lindsey is doing her best to make Mark suffer, but the season 14 husband hasn’t been eager to exit their marriage. After returning to Boston, Lindsey picked a fight with Mark while on a group date with their fellow Married At First Sight newlyweds at a bowling alley. Lindsey called out Mark’s sensitive relationship with his mother and, during an appearance on Afterparty, Lindsey shared that her husband has a habit of dating women already dating other men. While Married At First Sight fans have noted that Mark feels uncomfortable around Lindsey, the husband hasn’t indicated that he’s ready to leave Lindsey just yet. One Reddit user shared, “Mark secretly hates Lindsey. He does all he can to not cringe every time she says something.” Fans think Mark’s still with Lindsey because he feels trapped in their marriage.
One reason why Married At First Sight fans think Mark hasn’t left Lindsey yet is the blows his self-esteem has endured throughout his marriage. Viewers think Lindsey’s delayed Mark from leaving her by consistently putting him down and attacking his dwindling confidence. A fan explained, “Mark’s personality has been completely squashed… Now he appears to be in survival mode.” The Married At First Sight fanbase fears that Mark won’t leave Lindsey because he doesn’t have the self-assurance to stand up for himself anymore. Another popular theory is that Mark is still attracted to Lindsey and wants to maintain his intimate relationship with her. One commenter assessed, “[Mark] does not like [Lindsey], although he seems to like her just enough to have sex with her.” Cynical Married At First Sight fans think sex is enough motivation for Mark to stay with Lindsey.
Even though Married At First Sight fans believe Lindsey’s bullying her arranged husband, Mark hasn’t made any attempts to terminate his relationship. According to viewers, the reasons why Mark hasn’t left Lindsey yet are his diminishing confidence and desire to stay intimate with Lindsey. Fans can only hope Mark can muster the courage to leave Lindsey by Married At First Sight season 14’s Decision Day.
