Rodney introduced Matthew to Teresa several years ago and since then, they have been the perfect couple. Both he and Teresa are very busy professionals but they always make time for love.

Matthew is supportive of his famous fiance and their bond is unbreakable until Ali appears on the scene. Matthew, who views Teresa in a positive light starts to think that Teresa may not be as faithful as he initially thought. His suspicions drive a wedge between them making the situation ripe for Ali to exploit.
