After thirteen weeks of amorous peregrinations in the fields, here is the last chapter of this 18th season of "L'Amour est dans le pré" on M 6. This Monday, November 20, the second part of the report, understand the moment when the farmers take stock of their adventures with Karine Le Marchand, gave a large place to the most emblematic, the most commented and the most unstable couple of this 2023 vintage, Patrice and Justine.
First news: while the viewers had left the lovers in the middle of a clash, Patrice threatening to leave Justine because of his character, here they are both again in front of the host. This year's "The Couple" isn't done with the twists and turns just yet. At the beginning of the conversation, the beauty recalls that she fell for "Patrice's smile and lack of tenderness" without his disability (he is hemiplegic) bothering her. However, the debrief quickly gets to the heart of the matter, namely the pretender's military directives.
"We mustn't take revenge on our Patrice, eh, we care about it"
"We thought you were sweet, shy, but when we saw the images, we said to ourselves, 'She's back on her feet, you're in control of everything, all the time, have you always been like that?'" "It's been since I was subjected to domestic violence during my marriage. I rebelled and that's when I created this shell," she replies.
Karine Le Marchand takes it over. "We mustn't take revenge on our Patrice, we care about it," she warns before launching images from previous episodes where the young woman attacks everyone who crosses her path. "It's my nature, but I don't realize that I'm like that, especially since I'm very much into communication and sharing," says Justine... Immediately cut off by the presenter. "In sharing... No! It's the way you decided to do it and no one can do it any other way. You ask for other people's opinions, but you do as you please, especially at the supermarket with your shopping list. Véronique, the second suitor still present, had also received orders.

"At first, it didn't bother me," adds the cow farmer, who says he has been speaking better despite his disability since the program. The two girls on the farm, it was a bit complicated. My crush on Justine appeared after the first two days. I was happy to go for a walk by the sea."
Lack of potty, it was during this walk that Justine refused to kiss him on the mouth... With the tongue! "Why without the tongue? Don't you know how to do it? But no one goes to university with shovel rolling! says Karine Le Marchand. You train on your own like everyone else when you're 13 years old and then one day you do it for real. Am I the only one who did? It hurt me, he's never kissed a girl, he comes in with his tongue and you reject him! It's kind of like You disgust me. Patrice, you also lacked authority. Although the couple has since tried the exercise, it does not necessarily predict a serene future, even if each is sitting on the same sofa.
"If you keep going like this, Justine, I'll end the relationship"
After replaying the sequence of Justine's improbable move, where she had been unbearable, the host implored the suitor to "set her alarm clock" to follow the farmer's rhythm and look for work, assuring her that "in Normandy, there is work" and "at 35 years old, you can work full-time". All of a sudden, Patrice takes the reins of the conversation. "If you keep going like this, Justine, I'll end the relationship," he complains, getting out of his funk. I can't go on like this. You're going to tire me out. In agriculture, you need to be organised, I can't continue as we are today. It's impossible, I'd rather be honest with you. I'm on the verge of breaking down. »
Karine Le Marchand concludes: "If you get up at 10:30 a.m. every morning, you don't do anything all day, and you wait for him to make food, there is not a farmer, or an average person who will accept the situation. He's handicapped, he's alone on the farm, he can't have a ball at home. Who, on top of that, is super bossy. Not only do you not do it, but you also yell at you. That's a lot. »
The sequence ends in tears... And in uncertainty. Finally, a final video shows the duo happier. "I've taken over the reins of the house," swears Patrice. Let's hope it lasts.
