Final Decision: Stayed together

Current Status: Divorcing



Katie Conrad and Derek Sherman from the Washington, D.C. area got off to a great start in their relationship because they had a mutual attraction and got along great on Season 10 of Married at First Sight, which aired in early 2020.

But as Katie got to know Derek more, she became frustrated with his boy-like wonder in that she accused him of having "unrealistic" dreams and not having his priorities of marriage and starting a family in check.

Katie also claimed Derek didn't put much effort into their marriage, although viewers saw Derek buy Katie gifts, befriend her family members and be patient with his wife when she'd spark arguments over little things in order to get attention.

Katie's main insecurity in the marriage was that Derek might never fall in love with her given he had never been in love with a woman before.

She also struggled with jealousy issues, and Derek wasn't convinced he and Katie were entirely compatible.

On "Decision Day," Katie felt torn and wasn't sure Derek was "the" guy for her.

Katie said she had been hoping for a more mature, manly-man at the altar, but she decided to continue working on their marriage on "Decision Day."

Derek chose to do the same because he really liked and cared for Katie, and then the pair moved into a new apartment together under a one-year lease.

But the couple's relationship came crashing down about two weeks after "Decision Day," when Katie asked Derek to just be friends and then eventually requested a separation.

Katie said she and Derek had failed to establish an emotional and physical connection, and she called him "fake" and said she was never going to fall in love with him.

But Derek accused Katie of cheating on him twice with her ex-boyfriend during their marriage, both during filming and after.

Katie denied having slept with her ex after her honeymoon with Derek, but she did admit to a "physical slip-up" after "Decision Day."

Katie also admitted to going on a date with Season 10 co-star Zach Justice before Married at First Sight Season 10 premiered in January.

In May 2020 -- only a few weeks after Married at First Sight's Season 10 finale aired on Lifetime -- Katie went Instagram official with her new boyfriend Brandon Eaves after spending Mother's Day with Brandon's mom.

"Spent the weekend celebrating this amazing guy's mama in his hometown and couldn't be happier #happymothersday," Katie captioned a photo of the cute couple standing outside on a sidewalk.

In the photo, Katie was wearing a black shirt, black jeans and a gray cardigan, while Brandon was wearing a blue striped button down shirt with jeans and a blue baseball hat.

Brandon is an Air Force officer from Chattanooga, TN, who's currently attending Marine Corps University and living in the Washington, D.C. area.

Katie had mentioned and shown Brandon in some of her Instagram Stories and Instagram Live postings in the weeks prior to her Instagram post.

According to Katie, she and Brandon met on the Hinge dating app and began dating in March.
