Married at First Sight star Virginia Coombs has been portrayed as a party girl and heavy drinker since Season 12 premiered, and now her fellow brides are opening up about whether they feel Virginia was truly ready to get married at age 26.
During Wednesday night's episode of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, Married at First Sight stars Clara, Briana and Paige watched back Season 12 footage of Virginia taking shots and getting pretty tipsy at her bachelorette party.
"I'm definitely ready to be married. I've been ready to be in a very serious relationship for a while. I want to continue partying and doing what I want when I get married; I just want him to add to it," Virginia told the cameras at the pre-wedding bash, before apparently throwing up in the bathroom.
"I want a husband who is like, 'Yeah, you want to go out?! Let's go out!'"

After the women all laughed, Clara elaborated, "I think Virginia is really good, too, at bringing out the fun side of everybody."
Briana could be heard repeating, "Yeah," and Paige flashed a big smile.
And on that note, Briana insisted, "I think Virginia is ready for marriage."
Both Clara and Paige appeared to agree, and then Briana continued, "I think she is a very kind person, she is very loving. And she is ready to settle down with someone."
Briana pointed out that marriage doesn't mean the fun has to stop.
"Getting married doesn't mean you have to sit on the couch at home," Briana explained.
"You and your partner should be able to have a good time. And so, I think that [Virginia] is ready for marriage. She just wants to continue having a good time, and that's okay!"
On the latest episode of Married at First Sight's twelfth season, Virginia was shown asking her bridesmaids for a shot while getting ready prior to the ceremony, and the bride seemed preoccupied with ordering wine during the wedding reception -- even if it meant her new husband Erik was awkwardly waiting for her from a distance.
Virginia also aggressively grabbed and tugged at Erik for kisses while taking their wedding photos, and while Erik laughed and played along, he appeared a bit overwhelmed.
Virginia's maid of honor also warned Erik during her speech never to let Virginia sit in the back of a car after a night of drinking because she gets sick.
Over dinner, Virginia shared with Erik that she loves sporting events, festivals, concerts, and going to bars, and Erik told the cameras, "From what I've gathered, she might go out a lot more than I do, so that's out of my comfort zone."
But Erik said he thought Virginia was "beautiful" with "nice and soft" lips and so he couldn't wait to get to know her better.
In turn, Virginia gushed about how she was "definitely attracted" to her pilot husband at first sight.
"I've definitely never had that instant of a connection. I mean, I haven't dated in five years really, and if I tried to date in the last five years, it was too much work and I gave up, whereas this is so easy and natural," Virginia said in a confessional.
Wednesday night's episode featured Briana marrying Vincent and Clara marrying Ryan in addition to Virginia and Erik's wedding. Two more Atlanta-based couples are expected to marry in next week's Season 12 Married at First Sight episode.
