I’ve got this – Marrying a stranger is a huge risk Oh, my gosh But I want someone to share my life with, and I want to find love – Four weeks ago, eight singles took a brave leap of faith in order to find love – Hi – They married as complete strangers – Kiss your bride! [cheers and applause] – It feels great to say I have a husband now – Hi – Hi – Hey – Last time, our couples explored each other’s pasts in an attempt to figure out their future – Back home – Hey, baby – This is where we spent most of our time – Yeah, we used to play wall ball right there We didn’t have racquets, so we just used our hands – Oh, wow This has definitely been eye-opening for me, because we didn’t grow up the same way – So this is my parents’ place – Our parents’ place – Yeah, yeah [laughter] – I’m ecstatic I got married at first sight to Stephanie Growing as an only child, I’ve always dreamed about marrying into a bigger family And it just couldn’t have been any better of a situation – You can start cooking more – You want me to cook? – Yes I’m definitely not cooking three meals a day I’m not a housewife You keep saying you had this traditional upbringing I had a traditional upbringing My dad cooks, like– [sighs] I don’t know – I just feel like I’m putting in everything that I can, and this is me, and there’s really nothing else that I can do [upbeat music] – Tonight, with only three weeks until decision day, the couples celebrate a huge milestone, their one-month anniversaries – If we’re as happy as we are in one month, I don’t even know where we’re gonna be in a year – We might explode – We might explode [laughter] – I made dinner – I don’t believe it – You don’t believe it? – Mm-mm – Well, you gotta taste it to believe it – Like, if he keeps doing things like this, then I just may fall in love with him – So what would you rate me as a wife? – I’m gonna say, like, uh, 6.8 – A 6.8? Whatever I just feel a little shocked by this and kind of a little hurt – I woke up today just hoping There’s, like, a little sliver that, it’s our anniversary Maybe we can do something nice today, and– [indistinct speech] I can’t [indistinct speech] [sobbing] – Four couples were matched by experts and married as strangers Then, after seven weeks, they must make the decision for themselves – So at this moment, you have to decide– – Do you want to stay married? – Or do you want to get a divorce? [bright music] – ♪ No holding back ♪ ♪ No holding back ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ It’s all or nothing ♪ – This is “Married at First Sight.” – ♪ There’s no other way ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ It’s all or nothing ♪ ♪ ♪ – ♪ Hearts are spinnin’ ♪ ♪ Dancin’ through the light ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ Tomorrow we return to nothing ♪ – I always wanted to go here – [indistinct speech] – Yeah – We’re over halfway through the experiment, and our couples are on the eve of their one-month anniversary It’s so important to celebrate anniversaries and milestones for any couple, but it’s especially important for our couples, who met and married as strangers – Whoo. Hi – Hello. How are you? – So on the behalf of my colleagues and myself, we are kicking off this milestone with a special dinner for our couples, who have all come so far in a very short period of time This is a celebratory night A month might not be a lot in other people’s lives, but in your lives, it’s been a big deal – Yeah – And it’s a big marker So given that you have taken on a particular type of marriage with many more requirements than almost everybody has to face, why should anyone get married? What is it that you found that it offered for you that was, you know, either what you expected or what you hoped for or was a surprise about marriage itself? – Waking up every morning with a smile – Aww, that’s cute [laughter] – I love it – Am I blush–I feel like I’m blushing [laughter] – Yeah – You are – Aww – I can just see, like, Steph is very happy, and I wish that it could just be like that for Luke and me I think that after one month, it feels a lot different than I thought it would feel to be married I knew it was gonna be hard Didn’t think it’d be this hard – What are, like, the biggest challenges of this experiment, either with each other or just the documentation?

– I don’t know I feel like I’m really, like, putting myself out there, you know, and even after the few, I guess, arguments or disagreements that we had, it’s, like, be willing just to look forward, you know, and not run at the first, like– you know, like, sight of an issue – That’s one of the things I’ve learned in marriage, is you’re not gonna love everything about somebody else, but if you can accept them and still love them, that’s as good as anything, I mean, because that’s what you want back – Right – So now I have an exercise for you all, so I want you to get a card and get a pen ♪ ♪ Okay, so you’re gonna give yourself a number from one to ten about how you feel you’ve been as a spouse ♪ ♪ – Oh, my God It’s not rating Will It’s rating me as a wife, and that’s kind of–you know, it’s intimidating when you really think about it, because you have to be honest with yourself – All right, first couple, one, two, three ♪ ♪ Tell me why you gave yourself your numbers – Doesn’t surprise me that we oddly picked the same thing – I also didn’t give myself a ten, because I realize that I have had frustrations that she’s had to help me through I mean, you–they should have told us Homework is normally done at home This isn’t detention This is homework – And we did think that, like, this was a possibility Do you want to bring that? – I mean, we can have a discussion about it, but I’m not just gonna start ripping this place apart right now – City Tap – Let’s–let’s just go somewhere We’ve been talking about it for 20 minutes We’re gonna end up not eating anything – Oh, no, no, we’ll definitely go – I feel like she hasn’t seen the absolute best version of me at all times Everybody has room to do better, myself included – For only a month in, we’re doing pretty damn good, and where we see we both individually can improve, because you’re your own worst critic, we know that together we’re stronger, so I think that we just have a really good partnership ♪ ♪ – I– – No cheating – He’s trying to change it No changing it Don’t try to change it now [laughter] – Okay – Give me the pens – Okay, you guys ready? Okay, one, two, three ♪ ♪ You’re both sevens ♪ ♪ Okay, let’s explain why you think you’re sevens – Just because there is room for growth, and we are opposites in different ways, so it has been a adjustment just kind of, like, learning his personality ’cause he’ll come home, and he’ll be, like, “I need to run, and I need to go to the gym.” And I’m just like, “No, come watch this show with me.” So it’s, like, just kind of just learning each other in that sense – I think slowly but surely I’ve started compromising Like, I’ll go run and then just kind of come sit on the couch and, like, you know, watch some TV show, like, that I’m really not interested in, but, you know? My comfort level with Jasmine has grown tremendously – Well, at least they’re like, if you’re ready or nah – They’re prac–Yeah, they’re practicing safe sex – Yup, that’s right Do you feel like I’m not attracted to you? – No – As long as you know that I’m attracted to you and you don’t look at me like, “Oh, yeah, he’s cool This is my pal.” – Yeah Your romantic fantasy – You could wear some glasses, like a librarian type of look going on – Okay – And now a month later, we joke a lot, so I’m happy with the progression of our marriage – Thank you Okay, we’ll do a one, two, three over there – Oh, goodness – One, two, three ♪ ♪ 8, 8.9? [laughter] – 8.9 – Not a perfect 90, you know, but– – 8.9’s pretty good – [inaudible] – It’s up there – Girl, you a nine Just round up – Why you gave yourself– – Because I’m not perfect, but I think I’m doing great, you know? I like to–I’m trying to help him adjust to our lives – I’m not the greatest husband, but I do try to please her as much as I can – He does He’s very thoughtful I feel like he is doing a great job, you know? I have a few complaints This one snored – Oh – [laughs] – If I could wear it every day, I would My friends’ll tell me, “No more.” – Yeah, I already say no more I don’t know; I feel like you think I replaced your grandma, get three meals a day, and all ask you to do is clean But, like, we still have great chemistry And to be honest, he could have went a little bit higher, and I wouldn’t have complained about that [laughter] – All right, last two Let me give you one, two, three – 7 1/2 Both: 7 1/2 – 6.5 – 6 1/2? – Aww – Oh, come on, Kate – Kate – I feel like you’re doing better than that ♪ ♪ I didn’t expect it to be, you know, 100% perfect, but it’s very shocking to me that Kate’s rated herself so low I guess I thought she thought higher of herself in our marriage I can’t read her mind – We’ve talked about this already He knows where I’m at

– No – What? – I don’t know how you think about yourself – This is, like, how I feel about it – Okay – Luke put himself at, like, a 7.5 That’s a little high [laughs] But I gave myself a 6.5 as a spouse because I feel like I am trying, but I’m not getting results I mean, it was obviously on my mind that I wasn’t sure, like, if you were attracted to me Luke and I just kissed for the first time He said that he felt dead inside – He’s worried you’re drinking too much – So if this doesn’t end the way that you want it to, will you feel like you’ve put forth your best effort? – Yes, I do ♪ ♪ – If it’s not getting traction in the way you want, it doesn’t mean you aren’t doing a good job as individuals You’re doing your very best, and my sense of it is you probably are way up higher on what you’ve done and all the things everyone’s had to put into this to be where we are now So I do want to congratulate you all for what you’ve put in and all the growth you’re obviously experiencing – Thank you so much for having us – Thank you for having us – It was really fun ♪ ♪ – ♪ Circles falling through the atmosphere ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ These are things that you don’t want to hear ♪ – Um So why’d you put yourself so low? I don’t think you’re doing that bad – Like, a 6.5? – Yeah You don’t feel like you’re doing anything wrong, do you? – I feel like in every other relationship in my life I’m at a 9.9, but with this one I’m at a 6.5, and I’m just, like, stuck, and I have no idea how to get higher I just feel like it kind of doesn’t feel like a marriage right now, because there’s no romantic part of our relationship So that’s a big part of marriage, and that isn’t there, so I need to say something I mean, it’s cool if I’m just not doing it for you – Don’t do that – What? I mean, that’s what it is I’m just trying to be realistic ♪ ♪ If the issue is that I’m just not, like, the person that he was hoping to marry in this, then that’s the issue, and, um there’s nothing that I can do about that I have given you everything that is me, and that’s okay Like, you married a stranger, and this isn’t the stranger that you wanted to marry, so that’s fine I’m just saying, like, tell me ♪ ♪ And then you just sit there, and you just don’t say a thing – I don’t know what to say – Well, what are you thinking? ♪ ♪ I’m trying to talk to you – You know what bothers me – What? ♪ ♪ – Come on – Whatever you want to say – That you drink so much – Yeah, and you drink too – Yeah – You threw up at 3:00 in the morning and didn’t come home the other night ’cause you were so wasted So, like, how can you be mad at me, because we both drink? – Yeah – You’re–what are you– – Luke continues to bring up this issue about Kate’s drinking as his impediment to physical and emotional intimacy with his wife However, the last time I met with Kate and Luke and I asked him point-blank to be honest about his feelings about Kate’s drinking, it seemed as if it was just an excuse for his feelings and his behavior – I’m just worried that I have put her in a situation where she’s not comfortable, and she– – And drinking as a result of that? – And drinking as a result of that – Can you give me an example? ♪ ♪ No – Whatever Kate’s drinking may be, it feels that Luke’s conversation about it is really a deflection about his lack of affection and feelings for his wife This is unfair to Kate, and if they don’t develop better modes of communication, this marriage may be doomed – I guess it makes me feel– I told you it makes me feel bad that you can’t handle the situation or that it’s, like, that terrible ♪ ♪ And I don’t want you being in a space that it’s that uncomfortable or that terrible – [sighs] – ♪ Today’s the day ♪ ♪ I’ve been waiting for ♪ – For most couples, a one-month wedding anniversary might not be a hugely momentous occasion But for our couples, a one-month anniversary
