How many previous Married at First Sight couples are still together? – The Sun
MARRIED At First Sight UK is returning with season six, and will once again put complete strangers together looking to find love.
From Australia to the UK, the show has created some long-lasting relationships – here's a look at how some of the couples fared since being on the show.
Which Married At First Sight UK couples are still together?
From the first and second series of hit Channel 4 show Married At First Sight, none of the couples have stayed together.
However, they definitely gave it a good go!
Find out here what happened with their relationships, and whether they're still in touch…
Emma and James
The pair, who were the first ever couple to walk down the aisle, ended their marriage 34 weeks after the wedding.
The reason for their divorce was that they weren't sexually attracted to each other.
Kate and Jason
Kate and Jason went through with their wedding, but split just days after – because Jason was caught using Tinder.
He has since remarried, while Kate remains single.
Sam and Jack
This couple didn't even go through with their wedding – mainly because her family pressured Sam to back out.
The pair dated away from the show, but split within four months.
Lucie and Steve
Lucie and Steve split after six weeks together, but have remained friends and still meet up regularly for a coffee and a chat.
Melissa and Clark
The pair went through with their wedding and moved in together, with Clark quitting his bachelor pad in Milton Keynes and living with Melissa at her home in London.
However, they didn't stay together and split after just five months.
Sara and Adam
Sara and Adam lasted a year together – even though they had a huge fight on camera after Adam got drunk on their honeymoon. They moved in together, but got divorced after 12 months due to lack of chemistry.
Caroline and Adam
Caroline and Adam split after a year, even though they bought a pet rabbit and lived together.
Caroline has since found love with a new man.
Stephanie and Ben
Stephanie and Ben had instant chemistry, and both thought they'd found their perfect match when they walked down the aisle.
They enjoyed a passionate honeymoon, but things turned sour when they got back home and they struggled to live together.
Ben apparently got cold feet, and he left his wedding ring at home, stopped sleeping with Stephanie, and ran away to Portugal.
After property millionaire Ben whisked Steph away on a holiday to one of his apartments in Cyprus, the couple had a heart to heart and began to work on their issues together – and it seemed to work.
But just one week after the show ended, Ben revealed that he had left Steph and that he had already moved on.
As their divorce finalised Ben went into the Celebrity Big Brother home and revealed that he was having a baby with his mystery girlfriend.
Harriet and Richard
Scientifically, Harriet and Richard seemed to be the strongest match – but it wasn't meant to be.
Richard tried his best to win Harriet over, but she couldn't feel the spark.
In the series finale, they filed for divorce after sleeping in separate bedrooms just a week into living together.
Speaking to the experts after revealing the decision to divorce, finance director Harriet said: “Obviously I didn’t want, expect it to end in divorce so I think I definitely leave with a heavy heart.”
However, police officer Richard, 28, admitted he was downcast by the decision and said he would have liked to give it longer.
He said: “It feels so rubbish to kind of not make your wife feel that way. I think deflated just hits the nail on the head.”
Jonathan and Stephanie
In the first episode of series three, property manager Jonathan, 35, said: “If this can’t work with so much preparation matching us, what can?”
And the first impressions are looking good, with nurse Stephanie, 28, saying: "When I first saw him I thought ‘Oh, he’s smiling,’ which is a good sign. It’s felt very natural and normal throughout.”
However, things did NOT work out for the couple.
The Sun exclusively revealed how they split up just days after tying the knot.
Jack and Verity
Office manager Verity told the Daily Mirror: "The show’s always fascinated me. This year I thought I’m prepared to take the risk – it’s my last resort to be honest.”
Jack was seen sinking a shot before walking down the aisle, explaining: “I’ve always gone for the wrong person before.
“My parents think I’m bonkers. I saw my mum earlier and as she looked at me she said: ‘You can still run.’”
But despite early reservations the pair got on well and decided to stay married – despite never getting sexual.
However, it wasn't meant to be and Jack pulled out of the marriage six weeks later, leaving Verity heartbroken.
Married At First Sight Australia
The couples from the Australasian version of the show have had slightly more success than their UK counterparts.
Unlike the UK version of the show, the couples do not partake in a legally binding marriage.
Let's get the lowdown on their romances…
Zoe Hendrix and Alex Garner
Zoe and Alex, who appeared on the first series of the show, never got married but have a baby together.
They welcomed Harper into the world in November 2016.
Despite fans' thinking their relationship was going to last forever, they announced their split in 2018.
Erin and Bryce
The couple, who "tied the knot" on season two of Married at First Sight, are still going strong and Erin revealed that she's keen to walk down the aisle for real.
In 2018, the pair shared that they were planning to say their "I do"s and have a small and affordable wedding ceremony in the near future.
The couple celebrated their five year anniversary in 2020.
They have also spoken with New Idea about babies, with Bryce telling the publication: "Erin would make an amazing mum!"
In 2019 the couple moved into a new house in Melbourne.
Sarah and Telv
Sarah and Telv were involved in an explosive breakup.
Sarah accused Telv of owing her money, and telling her she can't wear high heels because of his insecurity regarding his height.
Telv denied all of her claims and said Sarah's lies ruined the experience for him.
Sarah revealed that she was going through with IVF treatment to have a baby as a single mother.
Jules and Cameron
Jules and Cameron fell in love instantly on season six of the show.
The pair officially tied the knot in November 2019.
The couple also announced in April 2020 that they are expecting their first child.
Oliver Chase Merchant was born on October 3, 2020.
Martha and Michael
Martha and Michael also decided to stay together during their final vows.
There were rumours they had later split up when Martha was spotted hanging out with an ex.
However, they seem to be going really strong and still together with Martha admitting on the 2021 reunion show: "We're more surprised [that we're still together] than the rest of you guys to be honest!"
Elizabeth and Sebastian
Seb excited fans when he was spotted looking at wedding rings back in June 2020.
The pair announced that they would be moving in together.
Elizabeth and Seb were planning to officially tie the knot, but shockingly ended things in January 2021.
Elizabeth shared the news alongside a photo of herself with Seb.
She penned: "We have mutually decided to end our relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend. We want to thank everyone for the endless support we have received on our platforms."
