Dr. Pepper went on to note that the two are clearly good at observing one another, which made her question why they haven't improved in their marriage. Jacob said that what the expert is saying "makes complete and total sense."

"Something is going on here that has not been put out there," Dr. Pepper added. "Where were the positive feelings about at least some parts of each other?"

Jacob said that he's able to notice the good qualities that his wife has as a person.  "I think, as individuals, we can find positive attributes with each other," the IT analyst concluded. 

Haley nods along with her husband. As the two beat around the decision regarding their marital status, Pastor Cal Roberson asked the tough question that everyone has been wondering.
