Married at First Sight’s Nate and Stacia took a second leap by getting matching tattoos, and fans have a lot to say about the pair’s decision.
Stacia Karcher and Nate Barnes from Married at First Sight season 15 got matching tattoos, and fans have very strong reactions to that decision. If marrying a stranger, sight unseen, was not enough commitment for Stacia and Nate, they certainly showed how serious they were about marriage with permanent tattoos. The pair have had a rollercoaster relationship throughout the season so far, and fans are eager to see whether they decide to stay together on Decision Day.
Married at First Sight season 15 may have lessened its concern with cultivating lasting relationships, but it has not disappointed in terms of bringing drama. Stacia and Nate were one of the fan favorites at the beginning of the season, thanks to their instant chemistry, but things have not been smooth sailing for the pair. Things began to go sour for the couple as soon as Nate’s friend Megan overstepped, creating some doubt in Stacia’s mind.
Stacia and Nate have some communication issues that have been on display throughout the MAFS season. In their romance, Stacia doesn’t think that Nate is all-in, like she is. Meanwhile, Nate doesn’t believe that Stacia acknowledges his progress, as well as his seriousness. To reaffirm their commitment to each other, the pair got matching tattoos, leading Reddit users to sound off. While some halves of couples get their partners’ names tattooed, or opt for ink featuring hearts to signify their love, Stacia and Nate took a different route.
Both got their wedding date, in Roman numerals, tattooed on themselves. Fans brought up the fact that the MAFS stars not only married total strangers, but got tattoos after only knowing each other for four weeks. U/DaisyTheDreamer94 asked if viewers thought about: “how if Nate and Stacia break up they’re going to have to laser those tattoos off?” The Redditor added that they must have, “so much faith in their marriage.” Others thought it was Stacia’s way of tricking Nate into commitment, in a way that is quicker than the therapy he promised to look into.
With many of the Married at First Sight relationships in jeopardy, fans are rooting for Stacia and Nate to be the exception. They both seem committed to their relationship, but some fans are wondering if it just a ploy for more produced MAFS drama. Some Reddit users expressed doubt that they would last, with r/blewmonday jokingly saying, “they can just get the date of the divorce on the other hand.” R/Atrombit1975 brought up the unconventional nature of the entire show, saying that tattoos are “not crazier than marrying a complete stranger.” Other fans felt it was absurd that Stacia and Nate have not even said they loved each other, but felt they were ready for matching tattoos.
