The huge success of “Married at First Sight” season 1 enthused the showrunner to rethink for season 2 including the entry of same-sex marriages. However, the way season 2 fell short in matching the couples for wedding doubts the renewal of show in future. The majority of couples who were married at the show terminated their relationships including a typical ending of one couple who got death threat from the other. Just a few like Emma Rathbone and James Ord-Hume who were said to have decided for staying together and had baby plans. Read the news to find out the future of the show.
If you are unfamiliar with the concept of “Married at First Sight,” let us give you an outline of it. A team of specialists, which included psychologist, psycho-sexual therapist and anthropologist, studied the participants and accordingly created the pairs. The pairs were gathered at a church on the wedding day where they would come across each other and tie the knot. It is reportedly said that this marriage was just like accepting a freak unknown person without even knowing about him/her.
After the wedding, the newlyweds were allowed to stay together, take the essence of a marital couple for a period of six weeks. After that, they had been offered full freedom to make the choice of whether or not they would go along with the relationships. Do you think this sort of nuptial can turn into a prolonged handsome relationship?
As stated by Gospel Herald, Chris Coelen, the executive producer, stated while defending the show that the “advanced casting team” are sent to various geographic areas to search the eligible singles, and the men and women were treated exactly the same. If it was so, why is that the casting for next season is halted?
According to news published by Realty Today, there is no update from either the network or the showrunner about the possible renewal of the show. Oppositely, the new FYI series “Seven Year Switch” (which was made to resolve the problems between the couples) was described as “an open assault on the institution.” It was reportedly said that it had an initiation to turn marriages into social experiments just for the purpose of business.
