Tuanphan is correct, that will hide the line-through. It's actually an underline with the line height set to 0px, if you want an underline as it's designed, then you'll want to set the font styling of the navigation items to have a line height of at least 1em. Having it set to zero is also causing this problem on your website, where the navigation items overlap:

@Ziggy this is what I ended up using, for now anyway lol. Thank you for your help!

//Active Nav title text bold//
body:not(.header--menu-open) .header-nav-item--active>a {
  font-weight: bolder;
  font-size: 1.2em;
 background-image: none !important;

//Nav width to not overlap//
.header-layout-nav-center .header-nav{
      width: 50%;
    text-align: center;
    flex: 1 1 50%;
