If I was Brad's or Emily's friend or family member, I would say, "Whoah, steady. Too soon, You really want to do this?" Or are they just telling them what they want to hear?
    I think friends and family are too afraid of poking the bear and the babe to tell them the truth.

    She could simply have said

    "We are going though what most new couples do, trying to build a relationship that will be strong and last forever. There have been a few challenges but overall it has been the best thing that ever happened to me!"
    She didn't even have to mention the temper, the screaming, the "poking the bear", etc.

    If a woman ever treated me that way I would run for the hills!
    Very well put, and she said nothing of the sort. Interesting, to say the least.

    I think Miss Emily herself is realizing just what a "prize" she won. Unfortunately, I do not think Brad has yet seen just what's in the cracker jack box for him... give him time.

    Meanwhile, what's Chantal doing today? Facing media all day to talk about her public humiliation because the 'happy' couple need privacy. And what is she saying while she covers for them? That she wishes them well and is sure they'll make it because their is obviously something there. So while she's gracious and classy, they tear her down to build up insecure Emily.

    ...although it's only right that brad and emily finally got some privacy and some sense of normalcy since clearly they have a lot to work on (as they pointed out themselves).

    She might be one of those women that think that is "love."

    I hope they actually do take this chance to remain private and work on things, if only for that little cutie Ricki! To think they almost married with him only meeting her once -- whew, glad they put the brakes on that notion.

    After all it is much easier to *stay out* of something than it is to *get out.* Now is the time for them to decide just what is best for all of them.

    That roller-coaster ride Brad was avoiding with Chantal ~ he's been riding
    full tilt with Emily! Knock-down drag-out fights?? Really??

    You're right ~ I don't think it has anything to do with her insecurities with
    Chantal. Do us a favor, and let's not draw Chantal into THEIR
    dysfunction junction. What we're dealing with are two very volatile
    personalities. Let's not make excuses for THEIR behavior!
    Which part of what I said indicated I didn't watch ATFR?! I am not making excuses I am simply stating an opinion, MINE.
    I am allowed to do that here, right?!

    That's a good way of putting it!

    Why? Because the moment the show was over, they didn't automatically become two different people with the relationship skills, maturity, commitment, and level of self-awareness necessary to work out their problems. They're still the people we saw on ATFR last night, except they're not on TV anymore.
