Have you seen Married At First Sight? According to the website this show is an extreme social experiment following six brave souls who are yearning for a life-long partnership as they agree to a provocative proposal: getting legally married the moment they first meet. Four specialists – sexologist, Dr. Logan Levkoff; spiritualist, Greg Epstein; psychologist, Dr. Joseph Cilona; and sociologist, Dr. Pepper Schwartz – will create what they believe are three perfect couples, based on scientific matchmaking. The couples will never meet or know each other until they walk down the aisle and see each other face to face, for the first time, when they get married. Each episode of “Married at First Sight” will follow the classic lifestyle stories of newlyweds – from the honeymoon to early nesting to other relatable events of married life. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to separate?
I am now 3 episodes in and I am thoroughly intrigued. It certainly takes a brave soul to marry someone the first day they meet them. I certainly couldn’t. The premise is quite interesting as we watch them marry, consummate and live together in wedded bliss or diss. My favorite couple so far are Monet and Vaughn. They have all the makings of what could be a successful couple but you can see that they encounter alot of bumps on the road along the way. One of his chief complaints(on day three of knowing each other) is that she isn’t very open or affectionate with him. However, that type of intimacy takes time to build. Strangely enough they are also one of the few couples that decide to actually consummate the marriage on the first night they meet, also their wedding night.
This makes for interesting TV if nothing else. Check it out and let me know what you think! Below is a sneak peek of the pairing of Vaughn and Monet.
