Underneath Audrey’s photographic post, she invited her 1.4million Instagram followers to share their thoughts on approaching a relationship like a business.
The responses were mixed with many thinking it was a great idea and others questioning the need for such a concept.
One of her followers slammed the process, writing: “No because we don’t run our marriage as a business…”
Audrey politely replied, asking: “have you ever thought about your marriage having a greater purpose beyond itself?”

To which the follower questioned: “greater purpose like profiting off it? No.”
“No. Not like profiting off it,” Audrey hurriedly replied.
The 29-year-old seemed to realise she wasn’t going to bring the follower over to her way of thinking and left to answer some other, more positive questioning.

Viewers of the show have expressed that Audrey and Jeremy’s marriage reads as “forced,” as the pair tells long “anecdotes” about their relationship.
The star recently posted a video dancing with Jacob in the kitchen and a second from their wedding night.
In a lengthy caption, the mom of two revealed that she wants to be more “intentional” about creating “cheesy” moments with her beloved.
Many of Audrey’s followers were not pleased by the sentiment, as they felt that her desire to be “intentional” is a forced interpretation of love.

One commented: “Also shouldn’t a love story be more natural? Not a bunch of forced events strung together.”
Others called the young wife “annoying and pretentious,” and always “trying way too hard.”
Jeremy and his wife have also faced backlash over past comments on same-sex marriages.

In a blog post that resurfaced from 2016, the couple admitted that they “don’t agree” with same-sex unions and their platform will not cater to those who identify as such.
She explained: “We are not claiming to be a resource for same-sex marriages. It’s not something we agree with.
“Know that our content is not written to same-sex marriages, so to say that we don’t offer advice for that side is accurate.”
