Mates: Have These Relationships Survived?"
Today Larry follows up with some of this season’s
most memorable relationship stories to see how
things have shaped up since the show:
The first time Payton and his ex Erin appeared
on the show, Payton was trying to extract himself
from Erin’s life in order to be with his
new girlfriend Kristy. With children by both women,
Payton found himself in a tangled web and a fight
for his time and affection. Relations between
Erin and Payton had taken a bitter turn, but Erin
insisted that Payton was still sleeping with her
and lying about it.
Things hadn’t changed much upon their second
appearance on the show. Kristy accompanied Payton
to defend his honor and let Erin know that she
didn’t believe her accusations of infidelity
on his end.
Update: Today both Payton and
Erin say they’ve tried to take a more mature
and civil approach to each other for the sake
of their daughter. Payton is still with Kristy
and the couple is making plans to marry.
After Syndeity’s admission of multiple
affairs throughout her relationship with Aaron,
Aaron was having doubts about whether their daughter
Aubriann is truly his child. Syndeity resented
Aaron’s doubts though admitting infidelity,
attributing her straying to the fact that she
wanted more affection and romance from Aaron.
To put Aaron’s fears to rest, a paternity
test was performed by DNA Testing Solutions and
found that Aaron is indeed Aubriann’s father.
Update: Following two appearances
on the show, Syndeity and Aaron briefly broke
up but quickly realized they wanted to be together.
Now reconciled, the couple says they are much
happier and that communication is improving.
Sean and Mya appeared on the show in hopes of
reclaiming what they called “love at first
sight.” Things had deteriorated in their
relationship upon Mya’s suspicions of Sean’s
cheating and Sean’s accusations that Mya
is a control freak. Expert Stacy Kaiser gave the
couple tips on rediscovering their chemistry and
learning to compromise.
Update: The couple entered marriage
counseling after the show and says that their
relationship has improved “tremendously.”
Though Jason and Tara were preparing to walk
down the aisle, Tara was having a hard time moving
past Jason’s affair with her best friend
and other suspected instances of infidelity. Tara
said that until she found out the truth, Tara
wouldn’t be able to trust Jason to be a
loyal husband and father to her two kids. However,
Tara’s suspicions were causing her to act
overbearing and overly possessive of Jason, which
left him feeling smothered and frustrated. Despite
reluctance on Jason’s part, the couple agreed
to enter counseling at the urging of Larry and
Update: The couple now says
they are “happier than ever” and are
even considering pushing up their wedding date.
