The “Married At First Sight” Season 1 finale airs Tuesday, and fans will finally know if the three couples stayed married or got divorced. The experiment married complete strangers who were perfect matches on paper. Four experts matched them, but that doesn’t mean that that their relationships will definitely work out. The couples had a month to determine if the experiment would end in holy matrimony or divorce. Two out of three couples on the Danish version of the TV show stayed together, so the experiment could be successful. Who will stay together? It’s time to take your best guess in our polls!
Cortney and Jason: This couple has been seemingly stable. They worry about making their schedules work once Jason starts training at the fire academy, but they already have been going out of their way to make sure that they see each other and get quality time together. Their weakness is Jason’s insecurity. He has had girlfriends cheat on him before, so he has taken a lot of time to open up and be vulnerable with Cortney. He hasn’t even introduced Cortney to his mother yet. While he says that they haven’t met because his mother is too ill, some fans wonder if it’s because he isn’t ready to share such a personal experience with his wife. Cortney seems ready for marriage, but Jason is the wild card in this relationship. Will he be ready to open up to his wife?
Monet and Vaughn: This is easily “Married At First Sight’s” most tumultuous relationship. The two had immediate sexual chemistry, but they lacked communication skills. The two have fought in almost every episode about everything: Vaughn wanted Monet to cook; they were mad that they had spent time apart; Vaughn brought up threesomes; Monet wanted to have friends over. They fought about the littlest things, but in the last episode they finally understood each other. They spoke about what they needed and how they can clearly communicate — but was it too little, too late?
Jamie and Doug: Jamie and Doug started out as the couple who didn’t really seem like a match. Doug was immediately attracted to Jamie, but his wife didn’t share the same reaction. Jamie wasn’t immediately attracted to him, and that made her panic on her wedding day. However, that changed as she started to spend time with him. She is definitely attracted to him, but Jamie has a lot of walls up. She had a rough childhood: she watched women in her family get abused, she doesn’t know who her father is (despite four paternity tests), her mother abused drugs and she grew up in poverty. So when Doug lied to her for the first time, Jamie freaked out. She knew that bad relationships started with one white lie and escalated. She has forgiven Doug for the lie, but it seems unlikely that she’ll forget the misstep. She might not be ready to trust someone enough for a marriage. Will Jamie be willing to overcome her issues for her marriage?
The “Married At First Sight” Season 1 finale airs Tuesday, Sept. 9, at 9 p.m. on FYI.
