Every couple knows that one of the largest steps in a relationship (you know, apart from getting married to each other) is moving in together. You’re with that person 24/7 and all your space is now their space, so you better have a really good relationship with them. Or, you know, have known them for less than a week.
Introducing: Hunger Games, relationship edition.
It’s around here that our couples start dropping like flies drunk on their own drama, aka my favourite time.
Christie definitely has the biggest move to make, shacking up with Mark in his remote countryside farm. Not only does Christie have to live and adjust to this new place, but it’s a new place away from EVERY other place. It’s almost immediately apparent to Christie that if Mark is a serial killer, no one will know for months when she’s murdered out here. But I’m sure it’s fine, as we’re constantly reminded their relationship is based on science, plus Mark doesn’t look smart enough to be a killer (or is that just what he wants us to think?!)

Despite all the big “routine” talk at the wedding, it seems that a boring monotonous life isn’t cutting it for Simone.
Failing to understand and process what exactly started the only fight on the show so far, Clare continues to make fun of Jono’s crocodile fears. That’s some nice logical reasoning, Clare.
Since she’s such a supportive partner, Clare very kindly went out and purchased a crocodile shirt and squeaky toy, for a man with an established anger problem. Jono awkwardly laughs as his wife (aka the crazy dog lady) continues to disregard his feelings.
I love Erin and Bryce, I do, but Erin has never lived out of home before. After living in exactly the same place all her life, Erin, who is also the youngest of all the newly weds, is now going to be living independently with a complete stranger. Oh, errr, I mean her husband.
Despite this, Erin actually handles things pretty well. She makes Bryce
