Pastor Cal agreed and added, "Staying over? There are so many things I don't do. Even though I may want to do them, I just don't do them because marriage is more important than that."
From the beginning of their marriage, Virginia found Erik's strong opinions or beliefs on certain subjects a little off-putting.
Virginia has complained about Erik being too controlling at times, and Dr. Viviana Coles said during a March episode of Unfiltered that Erik explains things in a commanding way that comes across demanding.
Not only has Virginia expressed annoyance over Erik's standards and expectations for a marriage, but Virginia also felt her husband had given her an ultimatum about having children.
Erik once told Virginia that he'd be "done" with their relationship if she didn't want to have a child with him, but he later backtracked when confronted and altered his stance on that a bit.
In the latest Married at First Sighttwelfth-season episode, Virginia gave Erik her own ultimatum -- that he must find them a new place to live in four months, when her own lease is up, because she didn't want to move into the apartment he already owned that's not pet-friendly.
Virginia also said she wanted her cats to sleep in bed with them despite Erik's allergy to cats and saying he'd "suffer" with that type of living arrangement.
Virginia determined that while she and Erik love each other, they may not like each other all the time.
