The couple chose to stay married on "Decision Day," but Jephte and Shawniece's relationship fell apart once the cameras left. In fact, they temporarily separated.
Jephte admitted he had an extremely difficult time dealing with social-media backlash during his initial season, mainly because it was obvious he "wasn't feeling" his wife in the beginning of their relationship.
Once they reconciled, Shawniece and Jephte starred on Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After, which chronicled their journey to parenthood.
Jephte was shown trying to rebuild trust with Shawniece after sleeping with other women during their time apart, and Shawniece put all of her effort into putting the pieces of her marriage back together after getting hurt.
