Married At First Sight couples: Who’s still together? Where are they now? 2021 update!

Who's still together? Who's still married or divorced?

Married At First Sight is back for a new series – but where are the other couples now?


Married At First Sight sees total strangers getting married before being followed around for their first six weeks together.

At the end of the ‘experiment’, they have the choice of whether to stay together, get divorced or, if they’ve not consummated the marriage, get an annulment.

Chosen from thousands of ready applicants, individuals looking for long-term love are invited to be assessed by a panel of experts in the fields of psychology, social & evolutionary anthropology and theology.

Once matched by the experts the highly compatible couples go forward to enter into a legally-binding marriage with a complete stranger – only meeting for the very first time at their own wedding where they’ll declare ‘I do’.

Here we look at who’s still together and married and who has split up over the past and current series…
