Vanessa Nelson Married At First Sight Exclusive Interview
Q: What made you want to go on this show?
A: I was always a fan of Married at First Sight and loved how the experts took so much effort to make the matches. I never had a problem meeting men, I was just ready to meet someone I could spend my life with. I learned so much from Married at First Sight even before participating.
Q: What was going through your head moments before you got married?
A: I was really nervous! Of course! I was insanely anxious and wondering if I made the right decision. I decided to be committed to the process and took the plunge.
Q: What was the hardest thing about being “married at first sight?” What was the easiest?
A: Communication and change. Marriage is all about talking about your perspective, feelings and your partners as well. I didn’t expect my entire life to change so rapidly but everything turned upside down in an instant.
Q:How has the show airing affected your life?
A: It’s definitely crazy to see myself on TV. I have met so many great people who watch the show. I love meeting couples that watch it together.
Q: What has people’s general response been to the show?
A: Some people think it’s absolutely insane. Others think it was a brave risk to learn more about marriage and relationships.
Q: Why did you feel Tres had growing up to do?
A: It was just my perspective from conversations we had on and off camera. Everyone is different and I definitely think Tres is responsible and a great guy. I think to be prepared for marriage you have to really know yourself well and have a variety of life experiences.
Q: Why did you care so much that he came home drunk? I know you talked about you not being able to depend on him then. Can you elaborate?
A: I am just not a fan of people drinking a lot in one sitting and it made me nervous. I love to go out, have fun and have a few drinks but I believe in self-control. The situation was more about our communication and feeling like I can depend on Tres as the man of the house. I believe Tres is able to handle himself in these situations as he sees appropriate and it was just my opinion.
Q: Was it an easy decision to “consummate the marriage” with Trey or was that a hard one because you still were getting to know him?
A: I wouldn’t describe it as easy, the right time rather. I am comfortable with my sexuality and understanding our compatibility in that area was important to me. I think many people think only the husband is concerned about these things but wives care about sex too!
Q: What can we expect from you the rest of the season?
A: You will have to watch and see! I really gave my best effort to our marriage and brought my guard down, which I am really proud of.
We really are enjoying Vanessa and the rest of the car this season and can’t wait to see how the show continues to unfold.
