"But that's my friend, and her happiness is most important to me. If she came up to me and was like, 'You know what? We're working on it. We're going to counseling. He's going to do better and this is what makes me happy,' then I would support her."
Married at First Sight expert Pastor Calvin Roberson seemed shocked Taylor and Brandon even continued working on their relationship after Brandon's outburst during the couples' retreat.
Brandon voluntarily removed his microphone without permission, lashed out at production, taunted and berated a producer named Leif, and then yelled and cursed at Taylor behind closed doors for attempting to calm him down and talk things through.
"Pastor Cal, what are your thoughts on Taylor and Brandon staying together?" Unfiltered host Jamie Otis asked.
"If you had asked me on the wedding day, I would have said, 'Great!' Asking it now, on almost 'Decision Day,' I don't have a lot of faith in it," Pastor Cal admitted.
"A Married at First Sight marriage is very vulnerable, and to have that much drama and that much conflict in a marriage that's trying to build a foundation, it's just tough. It's tough to see that last."
Taylor and Brandon reconciled and attempted to work out their issues once they returned to their apartment in Washington, D.C. following the couples' retreat, but Taylor wasn't even sure Brandon would show up to their final meeting with the Married at First Sight experts.
On "Decision Day," which aired last week on Lifetime, Taylor said she never really felt supported or protected in her marriage, nor did she ever feel like she could depend on Brandon, who allegedly ignored her on a daily basis and didn't put much effort into their marriage.
Brandon did show up to "Decision Day," but Taylor wasn't about to deliver any good news.

"We've had some good times. I feel like you're on the brink of starting more communication, but um, with all the things that have transpired, it might not be the best for us to try to continue," Taylor announced. "With that being said, I would like to get a divorce."
"I'm over it," Brandon said, before jetting out of the room. "I'm over all of this."
Brandon subsequently told the cameras his relationship with Taylor had been "a lot."
"I got into this to find my soul mate and I wanted to be happy... but this is over and done with. I am ready to move on with my life. I wish her nothing but the best, but love don't live here no more," Brandon said.
Although many Married at First Sight couples have filed for divorce throughout the show's previous seasons, Brandon's move to file for an annulment is unprecedented.
According to Brandon's court complaint obtained by Reality TV World -- which asks for "annulment or, in the alternative, absolute divorce" -- once he and Taylor wed, "it became clear" that Taylor's intent had not been to establish a committed and lasting marriage but to "gain notoriety and attention."
In addition, Brandon's filing claims he also discovered Taylor continued to participate in online dating services throughout their marriage.
Without providing any additional details, the court document also alleges Taylor "committed adultery during her marriage" to Brandon and states he did not forgive or condone the behavior.
