Michael Goonan is one of the most outspoken grooms on Married At First Sight.
But he barely said a word after his “wife,” Stacey Hampton, was exposed as an adulteress woman at the reunion dinner Tuesday night.
And there was a very specific reason why the manager, 29, was silent when Stacey’s one-night stand was discussed at the table with Mikey Pembroke.

After the episode aired, Michael revealed that he didn’t “bury” Stacey for other couples because he took into account her children’s feelings.
The 26-year-old law graduate has two sons from a previous relationship, Kosta and Kruz.
“Even if you are wronged in life, you weigh the damage you can inflict on someone and their children,” he wrote on Instagram.

“No child needs to see his mother in a bad light. I had a split decision to bury her or keep her grace.
“We’re all f ** k up, believe me. I am not a saint. Thought it was me and only me who was betrayed (Mikey was single) I’m not in pain anymore. ‘
Michael then thanked Stacey for cheating on him for meeting his ‘perfect match’, KC Osborne, with whom he had been quietly dating for months.
He concluded: “In the end I won in a strange way. That is life, karma and lessons learned. Thanks, Stacey. ‘

“That was heard to see you crushed. Your way of showing such dignity and respect at the time was something to see. ‘
Another wrote: “I admire you for that. It says a lot about your character. ‘
A third supporter added: “You did a good job … you are my favorite this season as you saw [through] all bulls ** t. Good luck to you and KC. ‘

Stacey’s one-night stand with Mikey was featured at Tuesday’s reunion dinner.
Operations manager, 29, said, “One thing led to another, Stacey and I had a drink in Ivan and Aleks’s room and we slept together.”
Stacey repeatedly denied the allegations, even after Mikey drew up support text messages that they had spent the night together.

Aleks Markovic and Ivan Sarakula also alleged that Mikey’s clothes had been dropped in a Mecca Cosmetics bag in their apartment after the alleged incident.
Shocked, Michael said, “I forgive Stacey if it happens. I will not forgive her if she lies about it. That is definitely the limit with me. ‘
The reunion was filmed in mid-January, and more than two months later, Stacey denies ever sleeping with Mikey.
