About the series
Married at First Sight is an Australian reality TV series that features couples that were matched by relationship experts and agreed to get married when they first meet at the altar. Based on a Danish program of the same name, this series differs in the sense that the couples do not legally get married, but rather hold a commitment ceremony. Attracting 1.2 million viewers, Married at First Sight season 1 premiered in Australia on Nine Network on May 18, 2015, and the second season followed on April 4, 2016.
In this series, eight people that have never met before are paired by experts to share a life together. The first two episodes introduce two couples each and show them commit to each other. In the fourth episode all of the participants of the program meet and discuss their experience, and in the following episodes the viewer becomes witness to what it’s like to live with the person that someone else believes is the perfect match for you. The experts include a psychologist, sexologist, sociologist and a spiritualist. After several weeks of sharing a life together, the participants must decide if they want to remain in the relationship or not.
