Married at First Sight cast member Amber Bowles divorcing Matt Gwynne is a major topic among Lifetime watchers. Even after their disaster of a marriage on the matchmaking show, turns out the pair are still legally married. Amber recently talked about her plans and what she wants to do to move on from her husband completely. What did she reveal?
Married at First Sight: Amber Bowles & Matt Gwynne Still Married
Even though Amber Bowles and hubby Matt Gwynne agreed to part ways on Decision Day on Married at First Sight, they’re still technically husband and wife. And, as a result, the season nine MAFS pair haven’t been able to completely move on from a legal standpoint.
Turns out, Matt Gwynne refuses to sign the divorce papers and finalize things with Amber Bowles. This halts the process and makes it difficult for his wife. But, even with Matt acting as a roadblock, Amber has some other plans in the works to finally free herself of this Married at First Sight union.
MAFS: She Wants an Absolute Divorce from Matt
Amber Bowles claimed recently that Matt Gwynne is “homeless and jobless”. According to her, he lives on his friend’s couch. And, she claims one of the reasons he refuses to sign the Married at First Sight divorce papers is because he doesn’t want to pay the $7 notary fee for it.
But, even without her husband’s cooperation, Amber has alternatives she can pursue. She revealed that she is going for an absolute divorce. When it comes to this type of divorce, marriages dissolve in the eyes of the court – even without a spouse’s signature.
Amber Bowles said Matt doesn’t want to sign the papers out of “spite and laziness”. But, an absolute divorce gives her a way out even without his participation. So, when their divorce is official is certainly something to watch for moving forward.
What’s Next for the Lifetime Star Amber Bowles?
Even with the lingering issues from Married at First Sight husband Matt Gwynne, Amber Bowles doesn’t let that stop her from living her life. She moved on with a new man. And, the pair seem happy together. Matt treated her poorly on Married at First Sight. And, she gets a lot of sympathy from viewers. In addition, most are happy that she’s in a healthy relationship now.
Amber said her new man is “awesome” and “very emotionally available”. Matt Gwynne ditched his wife and wouldn’t come home on Married at First Sight. And, she even confirmed he cheated on her. But, it looks like her new beau is present in her life in a way her husband wasn’t. And, she seems much happier as a result.
Amber said she’s planning a divorce party in July. So, based on that timeline, she may not be bound to Matt much longer. Finalizing this divorce is the last link she has to this train wreck of a marriage. In addition, it’s worth watching what she does once she’s legally free. She even talked about eloping with her new man. And, she can certainly do that once she’s no longer bound to her Married at First Sight spouse.
