The extraordinary social experiment, proving a ratings hit around the world.
In “Married at First Sight” singles who have failed to find love put their hearts in the hands of a team of experts, who select their perfect partner. The couples then meet for the first time at the altar.
After the wedding and honeymoon, the married couples move in together and start their new lives.

Six weeks of marriage later, the couples have to make a decision: stay together or file for divorce.
