Emily was originally open to having sex on their honeymoon night or shortly thereafter, but she ended up opting to take things at Brennan's pace. Brennan does not believe in divorce, and he and Emily both come from homes with two parents. Brennan and Emily seemed very into each other during their honeymoon in Mexico with the other couples. They talked about their similar professional ambition and aligned goals for the future regarding kids and mutual desires.

The pair had one spat after Brennan became annoyed with Emily after she joked that he didn't know how to have fun. After that, they returned to Denver to start the living together part of the experience, and it's been downhill from there because of Brennan's feelings. Brennan's 'red flag' comment really hurt Emily, and his harsh words may have had particular intentions behind them and seem to have set them back.

Upon their return to Denver, Brennan did not move in with Emily and, instead, spent several days at his place. He cited that he was 'drained' from spending 24/7 with Emily for a week. Emily did not understand why Brennan was suddenly checked out and turned off. The Married at First Sight season 17 couple sat down with expert Pastor Cal (per Entertainment Tonight,) who tried to get Brennan to open up about why he wasn't feeling Emily anymore. Brennan refused to elaborate and deflected by saying he was not trying to hurt Emily's feelings.

Meanwhile, all Emily has wanted has been for Brennan to tell her why he no longer has romantic feelings for her. Emily has been resilient in the face of Brennan's waning feelings, but she has clearly been hurt by Brennan's lack of honest communication. Another expert, Dr. Pia, also tried to draw out of Brennan what he was feeling and why, and she got nothing either. Brennan seems to not want to dish out the real truth at all costs.

Emily's Struggle and Brennan's Refusal to Communicate

Given their uncomfortable and awkward circumstances because of Brennan's checked-out feelings, Brennan and Emily have decided to take things 'day by day.' Emily has been putting her own sadness and anxiety aside and has been respecting Brennan's closed-off approach to the situation with his attraction. However, Emily is clearly hitting a limit with the small amount that Brennan is giving her. The pair are living together, sleeping in the same together, and trying to mix into one another's lives while continuing in the experiment, so those are the good signs they have going for them with their delicate situation as they endeavor to connect.

Brennan said the loss of romantic feelings has never happened in his past relationships, which added insult to injury for Emily. In the latest episode, Emily was still not able to get anything profound or helpful out of Brennan emotionally when they had dinner together. Brennan reiterated the 'day by day' outlook they've taken on, which Emily has clearly grown tired of. However, Brennan did say one honest thing during the last episode regarding how he feels about why he lost the romantic spark with Emily.
