"I think for me, if you do more sharing with the people who are not in your marriage, you're setting it up for failure," Michael said during the February 5 broadcast of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered.
On the Unfiltered broadcast, Michael watched back a Season 10 clip of Meka informing the other four couples during a dinner in Panama she felt uncomfortable in her marriage to Michael and had never imagined the process being so hard. (This conversation took place after Michael allegedly gave Meka an off-camera sex ultimatum that upset and offended her).
"You're already married to them, so there's nowhere you can go. There's nothing you can really do, and you're tied to this person," Meka was shown telling the group, with Michael quietly sitting next to her at the table.
"Everything feels forced. It shouldn't be hard for me to feel a connection or want to talk. Those things are hard for me, and so I don't even know the path... I don't know what the right answer is."
As a result, Michael revealed to the other couples in the clip he had taken off his wedding ring and didn't plan on doing so until their marriage was restored and he could live up to Meka's expectations of him as a husband.
"Michael, what is it like talking about such personal things with all of the other couples?" Unfiltered host Jamie Otis asked. "Do you feel Meka is oversharing?"
"Definitely," Michael replied, before making his comment about Meka allegedly setting their marriage up to fail.
"Everything we do is being done for first time as a married couple, and we are not in a good place."
