Katina Goode and Olajuwon Dickerson have shared they plan to divorce after one year of marriage. The couple met and married on the hit TV show, Married at First Sight. They were one of the five couples who were matched in Season 14 of the show, which was set in Boston.
During the show, the couple had many issues, including that Dickerson believed his wife was lazy and failed as a homemaker. However, the duo overcame these issues and decided to stay married on Decision Day.
While fans were initially surprised that the couple stayed together, the couple soon became a fan favorite as they posted travel photos and other cute adventures online. At the show reunion, Dickerson proposed to Goode with a ring and apologized for some of his behavior and the demands he placed on his wife, which also won over many fans.
Why Is the Couple Splitting?
Goode and Dickerson shared a joint Instagram post on November 11th concerning their decision to split. According to their statement, the decision to split was difficult but needed because of irreconcilable differences. Despite their decision to divorce, the couple shared that they still love and respect one another. With their split, season 14 of MAFS has yielded no successful couples as they were the only couple still together.
Both parties have shared that they are happy they participated in the reality show as they have grown and learned from the experience. In addition to personal growth, the two believe they have gained friends (with their castmates and in one another). In a statement to EOnline, Goode said she is “grateful that [she] got the opportunity to meet” and “find someone that she could fall in love with.”
The couple has asked for privacy during this time. Details are still forthcoming about the terms of their divorce.
