What does it really take for a person to marry a stranger? That is the question asked to six singles, all strangers to each other, from New York City. The fascinating and controversial show “Married at First Sight” returns for its second season on Tuesday night, Mar. 17, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. on A&E.
We have seen matchmakers on the screen who look for compatible dates for their clients. We have seen shows like the one on TLC’s “90 Day Fiance”, which shows couples who just met on vacation or online coming together in the US and for three months, must decide if their wedding is already unbecoming.
Then here is “Married At First Sight” that probably takes a little of those formats, but with a shocking detail. On this show, singles are match, however, they never see each other up until they meet at the already to say their “I do’s” and live a married life together. After which, the couples will be living together before they decide to whether they stay together or just split up and divorce.
According to MailOnline, four specialists have come together to find the perfect match for the three women based on their needs and created what they thought were the “perfect couple” based on the scientific aspect of matchmaking. They are sexologist, Dr Logan Levkoff; psychologist, Dr Joseph Cilona; sociologist, Dr Pepper Schwartz; and spiritual advisor, Greg Epstein.
This, probably, may not be the good choice of the reality show for people who firmly believe that marriage is a sacred pact. But, if you are captivated with this social experiment, then this show will serve you on for a treat.
“Married at First Sight” season 2 airs Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. EST on A&E
