Viewers of the popular reality show, Married at First Sight, have taken to social media to share their disapproval of Peggy's parents' decision to forbid her from sharing a bed with her newlywed husband, Georges. In the latest episode, Peggy took Georges to her parents' home, where she still resides at the age of 32. However, shortly after their arrival, Peggy informed Georges that her parents, who are described as "traditional," required them to sleep in separate bedrooms.
Fans of the show quickly expressed their astonishment on platforms such as Twitter, with some criticizing Peggy's parents for their antiquated views of marriage. One viewer wrote, "I understand fathers don't like their daughters sharing a bed with a boyfriend in his house but FFS they're married." Another commenter joked, "Peggy's dad definitely has CCTV installed in her room and a shotgun beside his bed to make sure there is no hanky panky going on."

Controlling classless berks who’ve mollycoddled an actual grown-up to that degree it's vile. She's got Stockholm syndrome. George should run for the hills."

The mixture of traditional antique style and sparkles, coupled with a bizarre half-naked mannequin, received criticism from fans. One fan on Twitter asked, "One question...
