Virginia noted in the clip her "best friends are guys," and then footage flashed to Virginia crying to Clara about Erik's opinion and Clara advising her to "compromise" by letting Erik get to know the men in question in group settings.

"I think guys and girls can be friends. I would definitely say a lot of my closest friends are girls, but I have a lot of close friends that are guys," Ryan shared.
"And those different perspectives helped shape me into the friend that I am and the husband that I am now. I think it's healthy to have that balance, for sure, but there is also a lot of communication and respect that has to go into that, for sure."
To speak on what Ryan was saying, Haley added, "It's all about the conversation."
"I mean, there are times when [someone] is like, 'Oh, why wouldn't you date this guy? It's one of your closest friends!' And I'm like, 'Eww, he's like my brother,'" Haley admitted.
"You know? It's just a part of the conversation, but I do think, yeah, as long as you have that boundary, it's possible for guys and girls to be friends."
Virginia said she was used to going out and partying and then crashing on a guy friend's couch at the end of the night.
"I'm a married man and that's not okay with me. It has nothing to do with controlling my wife," Pastor Cal said.
"From my perspective, if my wife falls asleep on a guy's couch, I'm going to worry like crazy because it's my job, as the husband... [to] make sure my wife is okay... and not putting herself in a situation where some idiot is going to take advantage of her."
Virginia insisted that she has two best guy friends and she'd stay over their places all the time, but Pastor Cal reminded her that kind of behavior is for a single woman and not for a committed wife.
Other than a few minor disagreements, however, Erik and Virginia seemed happy in their relationship and revealed they had consummated their marriage.
