Eight singles (out of thousands of applicants), chosen by clinical physiologist John Aiken, neuropsychotherapist Dr. Trisha Stratford and psychologist Sabina Read, come to find themselves looking for love on a TV show. Married at First Sight takes these eight singles, makes them four couples and has them meeting for the first time at the altar. These couples are not actually married for the show, yet do go through a commitment ceremony. This reality series is an experiment based on real life occurrences for these 'couples', as they go through an accelerated relationship cycle.
As the final dates wrap up, it's the last chance for the couples to ask the big questions and address problems and insecurities before the renewal of the vows.
After eight weeks, the social experiment is coming to an end. The couples are brought back together for one final dinner party before they head home to deliberate over the renewal of their vows.
The experiment is coming to an end and the couples must now part ways and leave their apartments and return home to make the most important decision of their relationship.
It's the twins turn to make the biggest decision yet, whether or not to renew their vows and spend the rest of their lives with the strangers they met at the altar eight weeks ago.
The final two couples, Nadia and Anthony and Susan and Sean, spend a week apart before their vow renewal ceremony, where they make the ultimate decision: to renew their vows or to part ways for good.
The experiment is over. And the four couples who have renewed their vows, return to their homes to start the marriages outside the experiment. This is where the hard work really begins.
The four remaining couples continue their lives and marriages in the real world. Whilst Alene and Simon's relationship deepens, Nick's family tragedy put his marriage to the test.
The night of the reunion dinner party brings everyone back together for the first time in two months. This is an opportunity to catch up and address long standing issues.
