MAFS Couples Together
Lifetime
Married at First Sight - Doug Hehner and Jamie Otis
Lifetime

Jamie Otis & Doug Hehner (Season 1)

Status: Married

Nurse (and former Bachelor contender) Jamie and Doug, a salesman, took it slow on the show, and it paid off: They renewed their wedding vows on their first anniversary. They welcomed a daughter named Henley Grace in August 2017.
Sadly, the couple has suffered two miscarriages, but in 2020 they welcomed their second child, a son named Hendrix Douglas.

Married at First Sight - Jason Carrion and Cortney Hendrix
Lifetime

Cortney Hendrix & Jason Carrion (Season 1)

Status: Divorced

Cortney, a makeup artist, and Jason, an aspiring fireman, seemed made for each other from the start, but, as seen on Married at First Sight: The First Year, real life intruded after the show: Jason’s mother died; Cortney lost her job; and the couple argued over money. Sadly they weren’t able to figure things out as the pair decided to end things in 2019 after five years of marriage.

Married at First Sight - Vaughn Copeland and Monet Bell
Lifetime

Monet Bell & Vaughn Copeland (Season 1)

Status: Divorced

Despite doing the deed the same night they tied the knot, Monet, a product developer, and Vaughn, a field service technician who now runs an organic food business, were the only couple not to go the distance the first season. Though the sex was, in Monet’s words, “awesome,” they just weren’t a match. Monet parlayed MAFS into a spot on FYI’s dating show Blacklove, while Vaughn found a new love with whom he welcomed a son, Zaire, in 2016.

Married at First Sight - Sean Varricchio and Davina Kullar
Lifetime

Davina Kullar & Sean Varricchio (Season 2)

Status: Divorced

Davina Kullar is now Davina Davis, and eagle-eyed viewers will note that is not Sean’s last name. It clearly wasn’t meant to be between Sean, a trauma nurse, and Davina, a pharmaceutical saleswoman. They never really gelled and couldn’t even live full-time together. But less than two years post-MAFS, Davina tied the knot with beau Donald Davis. The two welcomed their son Hudson in May.

Married at First Sight - Jaclyn Methuen and Ryan Ranellone
Lifetime

Jaclyn Methuen & Ryan Ranellone (Season 2)

Status: Divorced

After a rocky start, Jaclyn, a vodka sales rep, and Ryan, a real estate agent, became a MAFS fan favorite, and they elected to stay together on Decision Day despite their cultural differences — she’s from Jersey, he’s from Long Island. They had split up by the reunion show, and though they agreed to give it another go, they never hooked up again on any level.

Married at First Sight - Jessica Castro and Ryan DeNino
Lifetime

Jessica Castro & Ryan DeNino (Season 2)

Status: Divorced

They had the most tempestuous relationship of Season 2, but the fighting didn’t stop Jessica, a receptionist, and businessman Ryan from deciding to stick it out on Decision Day. We didn’t have high hopes for the marriage, but we certainly didn’t expect Jessica to file for a restraining order against Nick, who allegedly threatened to kill her and “disappear” her family. Needless to say, they are dunzo. Jessica now bills herself as an actress and appears to be single, while Ryan’s new love, judging from his highly political Twitter account, is Donald Trump.

Married at First Sight - Vanessa Nelson and Tres Russell
Lifetime

Vanessa Nelson & Tres Russell (Season 3)

Status: Divorced

The physical chemistry wasn’t an issue for Vanessa, a corporate events manager, and Tres, a luxury car salesman, but that couldn’t help them overcome serious trust issues and miscommunication. Though they were the only couple in their season to stay together after Decision Day, the duo announced they had called it quits at the reunion.

Married at First Sight - David Norton and Ashley Doherty
Lifetime

Ashley Doherty & David Norton (Season 3)

Status: Divorced

Ashley, a nursing student, and David, an IT project manager, had a rough go right from the start. He felt her heart wasn’t in it, and she felt betrayed when he reached out to another woman on social media. She ultimately opted for divorce — and only later found out that David pleaded guilty years earlier to disorderly conduct following an argument with his then-girlfriend. He still went on to star alongside Vanessa Nelson in Married at First Sight: Second Chances.

Married at First Sight - Samantha Role and Neil Bowlus
Lifetime

Samantha Role & Neil Bowlus (Season 3)

Status: Divorced

Though Samantha, now a client services manager for ADP, was initially cool on Neil, a laboratory manager, it was Neil who pulled the plug on their marriage on Decision Day, devastating Samantha. They split up, but their social media feeds show they’re still friendly. Role welcomed a daughter in September 2018 and in early 2019, she announced she’d secretly married Chris Wise almost a year prior.

Marriage at First Sight - Lillian Vilchez and Tom Wilson
Lifetime

Lillian Vilchez & Tom Wilson (Season 4)

Status: Divorced

Tom, a peripatetic surfer who outfits yacht interiors, decided Lillian, a high-end real estate agent, was worth settling down for. At the reunion, they confirmed they had moved in to a new place together and that their sex life is “very healthy.” Alas, this love was not meant to last. In May 2017, the couple announced their split after 14 months of marriage.

Married at First Sight - Sonia Granados and Nick Pendergrast
Lifetime

Sonia Granados & Nick Pendergrast (Season 4)

Status: Divorced

The most up-and-down couple of the season, social worker Sonia and Nick, a vacation rentals manager, seemed committed to making it work on the reunion show. But in March 2017, the couple revealed that they had filed for divorce, though they also appeared to have few regrets: “We look forward to growing and continuing to learn about ourselves from what we still consider to be a meaningful experience with MAFS.”

Married at First Sight - Heather Seidel and Derek Schwartz
Lifetime

Heather Seidel & Derek Schwartz (Season 4)

Status: Divorced

The magic was gone by the second day of the honeymoon, and the couple agreed to split after only two weeks—the soonest of any couple so far in the series. Heather, a flight attendant, blamed his smoking, but Derek, an account executive, says it was clear that she was just not that into him.

Lifetime

Cody Knapek and Danielle DeGroot (Season 5)

Status: Divorced

The couple split after one year of marriage. “We value and respect marriage, but life is short and we also value happiness. While this was a difficult decision and divorce is not something either of us hoped for, we decided we will be happiest separating,” she wrote on social media. During the show, the couple had issues over consummating their marriage.

Lifetime

Nate Duhon & Sheila Downs (Season 5)

Status: Divorced

The couple called it quits on their marriage after, Duhon, a business manager, confirmed on the news on Twitter, and denied cheating allegations. But Downs contradicted her ex and wrote on social media, “My husband & I had problems. Yes. He was dishonest and there were women throughout our ENTIRE marriage.”

Lifetime

Anthony D’Amico and Ashley Petta (Season 5)

Status: Married

The Season 5 alums are actually stronger than ever and welcomed their daughter Mila Rose in January 2019. “We have both always dreamed of having a child and we are so happy to finally be making our dreams come true together,” they said on social media.

Lifetime

Molly Duff and Jonathan Francetic (Season 6)

Status: Divorced

The two split up and Francetic was reportedly spotted kissing Dr. Jessica Griffin, an expert on the show. Those two announced their engagement in April 2019… so, we guess the Lifetime series works in mysterious ways.

Lifetime

Jaclyn Schwartzberg and Ryan Buckley (Season 6)

Status: Divorced

They only stayed married for 10 months. “We have split and trust me we are both much happier and healthier this way. Thank you so much for all the love and support,” Jaclyn shared on social media.

Lifetime

Dave Flaherty and Amber Martorana (Season 7)

Status: Divorced

The couple couldn’t make it work post filming even though they decided to stay together on Decision Day. “He just kind of felt more like he doesn’t know if he could fall in love with me,” Martorana said on the reunion special. “I moved out. I felt like maybe he needs more time to know if maybe I’m the person he wants.”

mafs7_tristanandmia_05082018_vc_00312_f

Lifetime

Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd (Season 7)

Status: Married

The couple welcomed their daughter Olivia Nicole in February 2019. Bergman said to Doss on Decision Day, “I’m just completely head over heels in love with you. This is by far the best thing that has ever happened to me.”

MAFS 1 stephanie AJ
Lifetime

Stephanie Sersen and AJ Vollmoeller (Season 8)

Status: Married

Even though AJ’s temper was a bit of a hurdle for the couple’s relationship they decided to stay together. Time will tell if the marriage can survive long-term, but for now, they’ve found some solid footing.

MAFS 3 Kate and Luke
Lifetime

Kate Sisk and Luke Cuccurullo (Season 8)

Status: Divorced

Throughout their season, Kate and Luke’s relationship seemed less than perfect. After unshared attraction and accusations, this couple decided to call it quits by the end. Even the experts agreed it was for the best.

MAFS 4 Jasmine and Will
Lifetime

Jasmine McGriff and Will Guess (Season 8)

Status: Divorced

Despite somewhat connecting this duo didn’t stick it out for the long haul. While Jasmine wanted to give their marriage more time, Will didn’t want to waste it and asked for a divorce by the end of the season.

MAFS 2 Keith and Kristine
Lifetime

Kristine Killingsworth and Keith Dewar (Season 8)

Status: Married

This couple has had its ups and downs as they worked to find common ground, but ultimately they agreed to stay married. Keith says his wife pushes him to be a better version of himself and that’s why he wouldn’t give up on their relationship.

Deonna McNeill & Gregory Okotie (Season 9)

Status: Married

This duo who took some time to warm up to one another ultimately chose to stay married. It seems like Greg’s play-it-safe nature and Deonna’s outgoing ways made for a perfect match when they mutually agreed to see their relationship through on Decision Day. And when the reunion finale took place months later, they’re still going strong with their relationship.

Lifetime

Elizabeth Bice & Jamie Thompson (Season 9)

Status: Married

Elizabeth and Jamie kicked off their marriage with an immediate connection, but viewers learned they could fight as fiercely as they love. Many times Jamie left their shared apartment following volatile arguments and while divorce was mentioned, they chose to stay married on Decision Day. Whether that’s for the best or not remains to be seen as they were still together when the finale reunion rolled around.

MAFS gallery season 9 2
Lifetime

Keith Manley & Iris Caldwell (Season 9)

Status: Divorced

On paper this couple seems perfect but in the end Keith couldn’t get past the fact that his bride’s relationship experience was limited (a.k.a. her virginity). On Decision Day Keith broke Iris’s heart when he didn’t want to stay married as she did, but towards the end of the episode he did say hope wasn’t lost for a possible reunion. That hope remained but only slightly when they appeared on the reunion finale episode. Even the other couples wished aloud that they would resolve their differences.

Lifetime

Matthew Gwynne & Amber Bowles (Season 9)

Status: Divorced

Despite an initial connection, Matt and Amber’s relationship quickly fizzled once his lack of commitment to their marriage became clear. On several occasions, Matt would stay out all night and not return home, when Amber found out he had been making time with other women she asked for a divorce which he happily agreed to. Meanwhile, the animosity remained intact when they reunited for the finale, but seemed to both be in a better place post-divorce.

MAFS Season 10 Jessica Austin
Tawney Holmes for Lifetime

Jessica Studer & Austin Hurd (Season 10)

Status: Married

From the moment they met, Jessica and Austin’s shared quirks proved them a match made in heaven. Though there were concerns over work travel and debates over when the right time to say “I love you” is, the two made an obvious decision to remain wed. When they met for the reunion, the pair had become stronger than ever.

Taylor Brandon MAFS season 10
Belinda Green for Lifetime

Brandon Reid & Taylor Dunklin (Season 10)

Status: Divorced

This pair appeared to hit it off when they first wed but when the honeymoon took a sour turn for Brandon with production, it set the tone for the rest of the season. Despite many attempts at working things out, Taylor and Brandon were ultimately too different to stay married because on Decision Day she chose divorce. After the reunion, it was revealed that they eventually filed restraining orders against each other after a post-season run-in.

MAFS Season 10 Katie Derek
Victoria Vazquez for Lifetime

Derek Sherman & Katie Conrad (Season 10)

Status: Divorced

Before walking down the aisle, Katie expressed doubts about participating because she still had feelings for someone else. Ultimately, she chose to wed Derek and the pair had their share of highs and lows including some tender moments and some baffling disagreements. Despite Katie’s apprehension to Derek and their emotional connection, she revealed that she wanted to stay married as did Derek on Decision Day. But the peace didn’t last long and it was mere weeks before the pair separated and eventually chose to divorce after affair accusations and poor communication.

MAFS Season 10 Meka Michael
Tawney Holmes for Lifetime

Meka Jones & Michael Watson (Season 10)

Status: Divorced

On their wedding day, Michael and Meka appeared to be a good match, but when they arrived at their honeymoon, Meka claimed Michael had given her an ultimatum about consummating their union. This began a long string of lies, awkward silences, tension and disagreements throughout the eight weeks. Despite trying to reset more than once, Meka revealed she wanted a divorce on Decision Day while Michael claimed he didn’t believe in it. When they met for the reunion, not much had changed as they remain happily unwed.

MAFS season 10 Zach Mindy
Victoria Vazquez for Lifetime

Mindy Shiben & Zach Justice (Season 10)

Status: Divorced

This couple didn’t even last through the eight week experiment as Zach couldn’t “build attraction” with Mindy. After weeks of trying, Mindy saw that Zach wasn’t worth her time when she learned he’d been speaking to one of her close friends behind her back. Needless to say, on Decision Day, Mindy stood by the choice to divorce. Mindy remained pleased by her decision when they met again for the reunion.

MAFS Season 11 Bennett Amelia
Lifetime

Bennett & Amelia (Season 11)

Status: Married

This quirky twosome were an early favorite, and their wedding and marriage have proven they’re a perfect match. Throughout a season of enjoying each others past times and getting to know one another, it was no surprise they decided to stay together on Decision Day. And the couple kept viewers’ hope for their relationship alive as they were still blissfully married in the Reunion episode.

MAFS Season 11 Amani Woody
Lifetime

Amani & Woody (Season 11)

Status: Married

These two from New Orleans both have strong personalities, luckily they seem to mesh perfectly. Amani and Woody turned out to be one of Season 11’s most successful couples as their love grew throughout the lengthy process. Despite going through a pendemic together, Woody and Amani’s bond only grew stronger. Even after saying yes to staying married on Decision Day, they have continued to stick it out as Woody gifted Amani with a diamond ring at the Reunion.

MAFS Season 11 Christina Henry
Lifetime

Christina & Henry (Season 11)

Status: Divorced

It was not a match made in heaven when Christina and Henry met and it continued down an awkward path throughout Season 11. After several bumps in the road including an accusation of a gay affair for Henry, it wasn’t shocking to see this couple go their separate ways on Decision Day. The bad feelings didn’t fade leading up to the Reunion as the former spouses revealed they haven’t talked since they stopped filming.

MAFS Season 11 Miles Karen
Lifetime

Miles & Karen (Season 11)

Status: Married

There’s a slight age difference between this couple, but the experts didn’t foresee that becoming a major problem for these two who appear to be perfect on paper. Desptie some struggles and growing pains in their relationship including her aversion to physical intimacy, Karen and Miles said yes to one another on Decision Day. Their marriage was even stronger once the Reunion rolled around, revealing a more comfortable pair.

MAFS Season 11 Brett Olivia
Lifetime

Brett & Olivia (Season 11)

Status: Divorced

This duo have a shared love for cats, but not much else seems to connect them based on the experts’ matchmaking. That caused cracks to form early on in the bonding experience and their equal inabilities to be flexible ultimately ended their relationship. Before Decision Day even arrived, Brett and Olivia decided to divorce. When they did reunite for Decision Day the animosity from Olivia was plain on her face. That attitude continued into the Reunion episode as the pair argued over the reason for their marriage’s demise.

Remember when Fox's reality special Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire blew our nation's collective moral gasket?

Fast-forward years later, and Lifetime has concluded its 11th season of Married at First Sight, in which moralizers can at least take comfort in the fact that the couples are paired up by relationship experts (and that, unlike Multi-Millionaire, there is no swimsuit competition).

But is MAFS' concept a formula for wedded bliss? The results are mixed — twelve couples are currently still together following Season 11's Reunion episode. And out of those remaining couples, five have started a family together.

Click through the gallery above to find out which Married at First Sight couples are still together and which opted for a divorce.
