While getting ready to walk down the aisle, Brett shared, "I've definitely been hurt in past relationships, a lot, probably more often than one person should have to experience. I've tried really hard and I'm definitely a commitment girl."
"I just believe in honoring your commitments," she added, "but I haven't had that in return. I haven't kissed anybody in over two years and the next person that I do kiss is going to be my husband!"
During Wednesday night's episode of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, host Jamie Otis -- who starred on Season 1 of Married at First Sight -- ask how it's even possible Brett went two years without kissing a man when she had been dating for a large portion of that time.
"Here's the clearing up of that situation, please, because if I hear this one more time!" Brett began with a laugh. "The first year of the two years, I was seeing somebody."
Jamie asked, "And you didn't kiss him?"
"No," Brett replied.
"During that whole time that you were seeing him?" Jamie questioned.
Brett confirmed there was no kissing and explained, "No, no. Because we weren't boyfriend/girlfriend. We weren't super romantic. It was a very emotionally-connected, like, sort of like a friendship but just more."
Jamie, however, admitted she's never seen or heard of a couple dating exclusively for a full year without having some sort of physical intimacy.

"Religious reasons," Brett clarified, which finally put the puzzle pieces together. "Yeah."
Given Brett married a complete stranger on television, Jamie joked, "I'm assuming it's his religious beliefs."
After Jamie laughed, Brett confirmed, "Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah."
Brett went on to say, "And then 2020 happened. Who was kissing in 2020?!"
Brett was obviously referring the global outbreak of coronavirus in 2020 and how the majority of people stopped in-person dating and quarantined at home. Government mandates also required people to wear masks in public, which clearly prevented kissing of any kind.
"So I want to really say I went one year without kissing, okay?" Brett suggested. "Let's just take COVID out of it!"
Brett therefore went into her marriage to Ryan not having been intimate with a man for quite some time. Ryan, on the other hand, was described as a "reformed serial dater" finally ready to settle down.
After Brett and Ryan got married as strangers, Ryan gushed to the cameras about how his wife is "beautiful" and she has "amazing eyes."
"The first impression could not be better!" Ryan said. "She's so positive and she's incredibly attractive too!"
Ryan admitted Brett wasn't exactly what he had described as his physical type toMarried at First Sight's experts but her appearance "totally works" for him.
Brett in turn confessed to Ryan's groomsmen that Ryan isn't necessarily her type either, initially, on a surface-level, but she said his character traits were "on point" and she thought he's cute and liked his beard.
Brett determined that Ryan may be a good balance for her because she's a realist and he's very positive and cheery.
Brett hoped Ryan would be able to bring out the best in her, but she questioned whether she would fit into the life Ryan was used to considering he has country roots.
The couple continued to bond on their honeymoon and open up like never before. They discussed sex and having children in the near future, and Brett gushed about how Ryan was making it easy for her to let her walls down.
Ryan told his wife, "I know it's a difficult subject, but I am a pretty sexual person."
But Brett shared in a confessional, "I want to make sure the feelings are there before anything physical happens."
Brett admitted that she was falling in "like" with her husband, and he seemed equally as pleased about his match.
"I feel like it hasn't been that long but I want to be around you," Brett told Ryan.
