Jamie Otis is not ready to give up on her marriage. As many of her fans know, Otis and her husband, and Married at First Sight, Doug Hehner have been married for 7 years.
However, the young couple has been going through a rough patch lately. And on Tuesday Otis and Hehner gave their followers a sneak peek into their marriage woes.
Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner Reveals They’re Fighting for a Marriage
“We’re not giving up on each other—not now, not ever,” Otis wrote alongside a photo of her and Hehner crying together in their car. “To be honest, sitting in the car in a random parking lot crying-like the hard ugly cry with snotty noses and hiccups-was not at all what I intended on sharing today, but here we are.”
As Otis revealed, they had “just finished a heated call with our therapist. It started with anger, yelling, blaming but ended with us holding each other and trying to figure out our next steps TOGETHER.”
The mom of two admitted that “a good therapist is everything!” Otis then admitted that her goal is to show her reality rather than anything else.
“I’m not gonna slap a smile on my face and pop up a pretty picture if that’s not my true reality that feels so fake and wrong. I’ve never been one to curate my Instagram ‘page’ to be aesthetically pleasing, not because I didn’t try to because at one point I definitely did. But that’s just not me.”
As Otis continued she said she hopes to always be the authentically “multifaceted, ever-changing person who is a complete mess at times.”
She’s a fighter and has been since she was born. “I’m a fighter. I have been since the day I was born & my mama had plans to adopt me out,” Otis wrote. “The couple was at the hospital ready to take me home but my mom said she took ‘one look’ at me and knew she had to keep me. I was legit born a fighter.”
Otis says she will always fight for her followers, her friends, her family, but right now, she’s “fighting for my marriage, my children, for me.” And that’s the battle she intends on focusing on now until she and Doug can get to the other side.
