Amani, Karen and Woody expressed how they're not sure Virginia and Erik have a future together in the process of making predictions and sizing up Married at First Sight's Season 12 couples, who will face Decision Day on the upcoming May 12 episode on Lifetime.
During Virginia and Erik's last dinner date before Decision Day, Erik got emotional over how much he loved his wife and wanted to stay with her. Erik gushed about being on "a high" in his marriage, but Virginia remained pretty tight-lipped.
Amani called the conversation "intense" because she's "not sure Virginia was there with him."
"There was a bit of a disconnect," Amani noted.
Karen acknowledged, "Erik did get very emotional, and she seemed a little withdrawn... But some people take their emotions back and process them [before speaking]."
Jamie added, "I don't know if she's disconnected... but I feel like she's just taking all of that in. It was a lot! Dude man is in front of you, like, crying it out! And you're just like, 'Okay, okay.'"
Amani therefore predicted Erik will say "yes" on Decision Day but Virginia "is still a little hesitant."
"I feel like she's in this and she's been committed, but I'm not sure how she's responding or receiving the demanding stipulations she's going to be under being his wife," Amani reasoned.

Erik also set standards and expectations for what he believes a marriage should be like and how a wife should behave.
As viewers have seen on the show's twelfth season, Erik anticipated Virginia would contact him basically every hour when she's away traveling, and he disapproved of Virginia crashing at a guy friend's house after drinking or "liking" her male friends' posts on social media.
"[Erik] is going to change," Amani said. "He's going to grow and realize he's been unrealistic in some of his requirements -- but can [Virginia] wait until he changes? [That's] the real decision."
But Karen asked her friend, "Does he want to change?"
"That too!" Amani replied.
Karen pointed out how Erik and Virginia's relationship has been "up and down" all season long and she can't wait to see what happens on Decision Day.
"I think they're going to stay together," Jamie chimed in. "I mean, I feel like they've got the chemistry and they've got the foundation. They just have to figure out how to be together day to day."
Elizabeth agreed with her husband that Erik and Virginia will probably agree to stay married.
"In short, it's ridiculous. I think Erik needs to have more understanding and less ultimatums," Pastor Cal said at the time.
"It's one thing to express the importance of wanting a thing, but you cannot always threaten your marriage with divorce."
On the latest episode ofMarried at First Sight's twelfth season, Erik made it known he planned on saying "yes" on Decision Day, but Virginia seemed hesitant given she and Erik still had a lot of issues to work through and tended to push their problems under the carpet.
Paige and Chris chose to end their marriage and pursue a divorce shortly before their one-month anniversary, but based on a preview for the upcoming episode, fans may be in for a big surprise on "Decision Day."
