Married at First Sight star Jose has dished how he really feels about Rachel's revelation that she has cheated on a boyfriend before.
During the latest episode of Married at First Sight, four of the Season 13 MAFS couples played the game "Never Have I Ever" while enjoying a boat ride in the ocean during their honeymoon in the Florida Keys.

"I mean, we're all imperfect. We all make mistakes in life, and we're here today because of the mistakes and we grew from them and we learned from them and we know better," Myrla reasoned.
Jamie said taking accountability for one's mistakes is also "a great quality" in a partner.
On Married at First Sight's thirteenth season, Jose was surprised to learn that his wife had stepped out on a partner before, and he told the cameras that he believes cheaters are "very selfish."
Jose's father apparently cheated on his mother and so that's something Jose is now totally against.
Rachel, however, insisted she was "very young and dumb" when she cheated.
Although Jose and Rachel got along beautifully and were very attracted to one another, Rachel admitted she was struggling a bit to let her husband take charge and take on "that man's role" in a relationship as caretaker and provider given she had always been so independent.
Rachel, for instance, wanted to contribute to household expenses and not just bleed from a joint account.
Rachel was also concerned about the fact she and Jose had yet to consummate their marriage.
Intimacy is important to both Jose and Rachel, so Rachel said she feared not being sexually compatible or having that kind of chemistry once they decided to have sex.
Jose explained that he needed boxes checked from an emotional and mental standpoint before having sex with a woman.
"I'm so glad we're married," Rachel concluded.
"It just keeps getting better and better. I definitely think we're headed in the right direction. But I'm still like, 'We have to live together,' and I have a lot of pride in my independence."
In addition to Jose and Rachel, Married at First Sight's thirteenth season, which currently airs Wednesday nights at 8PM ET/PT on Lifetime, also stars Myrla and Gil Cuero, Johnny and Bao, Michaela and Zack, and Brett and Ryan.
