On the April 15 episode of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, a Season 10 clip aired of Jessica leaving the newlywed couple's shared apartment the night before "Decision Day" because the pair had been asked to sleep apart.
"But at the same time, not having the greatest last dinner I guess before we left, yeah, that puts some bad thoughts in your head," Austin shared, referencing how he and Jessica argued at a restaurant over his job's travel requirements.
Married at First Sight expert Pastor Calvin Roberson joined Austin on Unfiltered and explained why the experts asked each couple to spend the night apart before "Decision Day."

"If they've done this correctly then they've built enough momentum in their relationships so that the night apart is not a big deal," Pastor Cal said.
"Like with Austin and Jessica, if this was school and they've gotten As their entire academic career, I'm not worried about whether or not they're going to pass, as opposed to maybe [Meka Jones and Michael Watson]."
Pastor Cal continued with a laugh, "They've had some tough quizzes... Like pop quizzes!"
"So the night apart can very easily go either way with [Meka and Michael], because you don't have the momentum that you've built in your relationship, where this is like, 'Oh this is [nothing]. I'm going to miss you being away,'" he said.
"If you're feeling like, 'Phew, I've got a night away,' that's a problem."
"Jess, it means the world to me, and I see you love me. I feel the commitment and I truly see you have my back, and it makes me know that I love you," Austin said.
"I love you too," Jessica replied.
"Of course I want to stay married to you, because I love you," Austin noted, before the couple kissed.
Austin said it felt great to finally reveal his true feelings, and Jessica seemed overjoyed. Pastor Cal and the other experts, Dr. Viviana Coles and Dr. Pepper Schwartz, cried with happiness and congratulated the pair, and Pastor Cal said he saw a bright future for these two.
"I definitely found what I was looking for, and more. I truly do love her and I just can't wait to see what comes next. This is the beginning of the rest of our lives," Austin said in a confessional.
"With great risk comes great reward, and I'm excited we're going to do this together," Jessica added.
