Married at First Sight debuted in America five years ago and has broadcast seven full seasons starring 21 couples so far, with Season 8 having just premiered on Lifetime on New Years Day.
Every season of Married at First Sight -- which is based on a Danish series -- features couples (previously three couples, however Season 8 features four couples) who are paired up by relationship experts and agree to marry when they first meet.
Complete strangers become husband and wife in a matter of seconds, and then their lives are documented by cameras over the course of four to eight weeks (seven weeks, in the case of Season 8).
The Married at First Sightcouples typically enjoy their first night together in a hotel after exchanging vows -- with some couples deciding to consummate their marriage immediately -- and then they embark on a honeymoon, move in together, and simply attempt to conquer the struggles of daily life as man and wife.
At the end of the extreme marriage experiment, each couple must decide whether they'd like to stay married or get a divorce on "Decision Day."
Married at First Sight has had mixed results over the last few years. While many couples choose to stay together and continue on with married life at the end of their season, the real world away from cameras seems to hit them hard, resulting in a split only months later.
Do cast members see a different side of their spouses once cameras are turned off, or do the romances naturally fizzle over time?
Some Married at First Sightcouples are still together to this day and are extremely happy. Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner from Season 1, for example, welcomed their first child together in August 2017, a baby girl they named Henley. And several other Married at First Sight couples are also expecting children!
However, then there are Married at First Sight relationships that ended badly. Jessica Castro from Season 2, for instance, accused her ex-husband Ryan De Nino of alleged death threats, and she went on to file a restraining order and lawsuit against him.
Are the remaining Married at First Sight couples lovers, friends or enemies?! What about early season couples like Cortney Hendrix and Jason Carrion, Jaclyn Methuen and Ryan Ranellone, Vanessa Nelson and Tres Russell, Sonia Granados and Nick Pendergrast, and Lillian Vilchez and Tom Wilson?
