The “Married at First Sight” Season 2 couples finally met in episode 2, and now it’s time to start the rest of their lives together — or at least, the next six weeks. Three women and three men married complete strangers that four experts say are their scientific matches. Now that they’ve gotten married and made their first impressions, they have to see if they can survive the next month and a half. At the end of that time, they’ll have to decide if they’re ready to spend their lives together or get a divorce. So who will find their soulmate and who will find a divorce lawyer? It's time to make predictions based on first impressions of the newlyweds.
Davina Kullar and Sean Varricchio
Pros: This couple had immediate chemistry. Despite Davina’s claim that she could never kiss her husband at the altar minutes after meeting him, the two shared a steamy liplock in front of everyone.
Cons: They don’t have support from their families. While Sean’s family seemed to come around after the ceremony, Davina’s family didn’t show up. She claimed they would change their minds once they saw how happy she was. If she’s wrong, that could add stress to the marriage.
Do you think Sean and Davina will stay married?
Jaclyn Methuen and Ryan Ranellone
Pros: Ryan said he really thinks Jaclyn is the woman for him. He enjoyed her personality and understood why they were matched. Jaclyn also seemed to appreciate his relationship with his family, which plays a huge role in his life.
Cons: Jaclyn wasn’t attracted to Ryan. She expected love at first sight and was disappointed when she didn’t feel it. If she opens up and sees beyond his looks, this could mirror last year’s situation with Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner, who are now happily married. However, if she wallows in her disappointment, the marriage could turn toxic.
Do you think Jaclyn and Ryan will stay together?
Jessica Castro and Ryan De Nino
Pros: They were attracted to each other right away. They also had similar upbringings, including being raised by their stepfathers. Their families even bonded immediately.
Cons: These two haven’t seen much conflict yet, but they might soon. Jessica comes from a religious Catholic family and Ryan is Jewish. Both said they were fine with being married to someone from another religion, and that will be put to the test as the holidays come around. Even if they’re fine with blending traditions, their families might not be.
Do you think Jessica and Ryan will stay married?
