‘Married at First Sight’: 18 Couples In 6 Seasons – How Many Still Married?

Married at First Sight is in its seventh season. How many are still married? Out of the 18 couples selected for the experiment in the previous six seasons, only four of the couples are still married. Two couples from the first season have not divorced.  All nine couples from seasons 2, 3, and 4 are divorced. Only one couple from season 5 and one from season 6 are still married. 

Season 7 of MAFS just started, and is already filled with controversy.  Husband Tristan Thompson made some racially insensitive remarks that outraged some fans. Things went from bad to worse when his wife, Mia Bally, was arrested for allegedly stalking an ex-boyfriend.

Season 1: Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner

Married at First Sight: Jamie Otis Doug Hehner

When Jamie Otis met Doug Hehner at the altar, she thought it was the worst day of her life. Of the three weddings that took place in the first season, Jamie struggled the most. She didn’t like Doug at all.  She pushed through and by the end of the season, Jamie and Doug had a strong marriage.

In 2016, Jamie had a miscarriage. She and Doug named the little boy Jonathan Edward. They welcomed a baby girl named Henley Grace on August 22, 2017.

Jamie is part of the Married at First Sight team. She interviews the couples throughout the season to keep viewers up to date about what’s going on in their lives.

Season 1: Cortney Hendrix and Jason Carrion

Cortney Hendrix and Jason Carrion got married when Jamie and Doug did. Both couples were featured in a spin-off series, “Married at First Sight: The First Year.”  Cortney and Jason had some bumps in the road along the way. However, their marriage is still surviving four years later.

Three couples were matched and married during seasons 2, 3, and 4. All three of the couples divorced even though some of them said they would stay married.

Season 5: Ashley Petta and Anthony D’Amico on MAFS

During the fifth season, three couples married. Fans rooted for all of them to stay married. Ashley Petta and Anthony D’Amico are the only ones still married from that season. It is interesting that viewers thought Ashley and Anthony would divorce.

Some people thought it was going to be a deal breaker when Ashley insisted she was not going to take Anthony’s last name. Apparently, they compromised and concluded that it didn’t matter as long as they were together.

Season 6: Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre on Married at First Sight

Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre met at the altar and married just as the other couples did. Like most of the couples, they had some ups and downs. However, they worked things out. At the end of the sixth season, the couple shared some exciting news. They are expecting a baby later this year.

Shawniece and Jephte are over the moon about starting a family. Their followers on social media are looking forward to the arrival of the little one. Some of Shawniece’s family members jokingly asked her if she was going to give them “a little Shawniece” or “a little Shawnephew.”
