Finding love is not easy, whether broadcasted nationally or trying to make it work in real-time. Some settle, others give up and stay single forever and then there are those take a note from the great, late singer Aaliyah and “dust themselves off and try again.” Each season, Married At First Sight has gotten us deep in our feelings as we watch the progression of the couples paired up for wedded bliss. But it isn’t all love, in fact there tends to be a lot of drama—and we love it. From getting arrested on the way to honeymoons to explosive revelations about babies on the way, viewers are super invested in the wellbeing of these marriages and have developed a sense of commitment to seeing them through.
Since the show has aired, more than 65,000 people have signed up to find their chance at love but only a few are chosen. What happens to the rest? Well, we’re about to find out.
