Jacob and Haley's marriage appeared to hit rock bottom when they fought about an $800 infinity bracelet Jacob had purchased for his wife for their wedding day that Haley hadn't worn one time or even kept at their apartment.
Jacob admitted he felt "disrespected" by Haley's indifference to the bracelet, and Married at First Sight expert Dr. Pepper Schwartz told the cameras Haley needed to accept responsibility for her role in the problem or else her marriage probably wouldn't work out.
During the April 21 broadcast of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, Jacob watched back a Season 12 clip in which Haley was shown FaceTiming with her mother.
"So Jake got upset about the bracelet again, so if you could please send it back so that he can have it in his possession and we don't have to worry about that anymore," Haley tells her mom.
"I will," Haley's mom replies.
"I will overnight it first thing in the morning. That is beyond tacky, like you signed up for it, but he just needs his bracelet back. He should have never bought the bracelet and bought a gift that he wasn't prepared to give."
Haley's mom adds, "If you're going to give a gift, you GIVE the gift."
And Haley gripes, "And if we could not bring up how much it costs again, that would be nice too."
"That's ridiculous. I hate that you had to deal with this," Haley's mom says.
Married at First Sight expert Dr. Viviana Coles acknowledged on the April 7 broadcast of Unfiltered it was probably difficult for Jacob to break through Haley's walls.
"He's in a really tough spot because if he tries too hard, that's unattractive to [Haley]. If he doesn't try enough, then she doesn't really have the motivation to move towards him," Viviana explained.
Jacob has said on the show he didn't feel like he could woo Haley because she simply didn't want his affection and so he allowed her to take the reins on what type of interactions they'd have.
