Married At First Sight

Which Married At First Sight couples from 2020 are actually still together?

Who are this year's Cam and Jules and who are this year's lovesick fools?

By Alex Lilly
Married At First Sight and long-lasting relationships don't exactly go hand-in-hand.
But after seeing the first ever legit MAFS wedding between Cam Merchant and Jules Robinson, our faith in the experiment was restored ever so slightly. So what hope do this year's couples have?

All up, only three couples in the history of the show have gone the distance and are still romantically linked.
Season two's Erin Bateman and Bryce Mohr are the franchise's longest-lasting couple, though the two are notoriously private on social media. Perhaps that's the secret to their success?
Aside from season six golden couple Cam and Jules who tied the knot for real in a televised special on A Current Affair, the third couple who are still united are Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli.
So how have the class of 2020 fared? Here's everything we know.

Poppy and Luke: Kaput

Down-to-earth couple Poppy and Luke looked like they were a perfect fit at first, but after that wedding meltdown, their relationship was pretty much doomed.
On the night her wedding aired, the Daily Mail snapped photos of Poppy at a bar surrounded by friends but her husband Luke was nowhere to be seen and the mum-of-two looked teary though she later composed herself and was seen smiling with her pals.
Woman's Day also obtained snaps of Poppy smooching a mystery man that most definitely wasn't Luke in her hometown of Wollongong.
The news was confirmed just after the first commitment ceremony when Poppy decided to leave the experiment to be reunited with her kids.

Cathy and Josh: Still loved up

We have our fingers and toes crossed for these two. (Image: Nine Network)
It was love at first "struth" for Josh and Cathy and after a telling interview, we have reason to believe the two are still going strong.
Appearing on Fitzy and Wippa's Nova breakfast radio show, both Cathy and Josh avoided answering questions about their relationship but Fitzy noticed a big clue that the two were still a couple. Or at least that they don't hate each other.
"Before we came in for the interview, Cathy was picking at Josh's hair, saying 'You've got something in your hair'. Now if they weren't together, there's no way you would have done that," he remarked.
At that point, Cathy tried to hide her laughter and then avoided eye contact with the radio hosts with a smile on her face. Guess the honeymoon phase may not be over just yet!

Natasha and Mikey: Their love is as dead as a dodo

It's not one of the experts' best matches in our opinion. (Image: Nine Network)
When Natasha and Mikey met at the altar, you could feel the nerves and awkwardness through the screen. And it's not looking promising for these two "alphas" in the real world.
Mikey paid a visit to Fitzy and Wippa the morning after his and Natasha's wedding episode aired but his on-screen wife was noticeably absent, prompting the hosts to ask where she was.
He tried dodging the question but eventually responded by saying, "I'm just letting Natasha sleep in this morning, she was a bit tired." Yeah sure.
To make matters even juicier, Woman's Day obtained some of Mikey's text messages begging blonde beauty Stacey Hampton to couple swap with him.
Seeing as Natasha has already said Mikey isn't her type and Mikey admitted that brides Hayley and Stacey caught his eye, we reckon these two are all over red rover.

Amanda and Tash: Destination Splitsville

It was a bitter split between these two. (Image: Nine Network)
They were looking for that "soul-level connection" but Amanda and Tash's love story ended before it even began.
As the first same-sex couple since marriage equality became legalised, Australia cried happy tears watching them exchange vows but even before their official split on the show, Amanda shared a now-deleted post on her Instagram stories that slammed her wife.
"Who you are and how you hold yourself through the bad times is what defines your character," she wrote in a post revealed by the Daily Mail.
"Anyone can have an entourage of false followers to help mask your s--tty personality, but who you are alone says it all."
On top of that, Tash admitted to NW that she found it hard connecting with Amanda due to their "completely different lifestyles".
"We are so incompatible and have really different values – her family is European, traditional and old-fashioned. I'm quite open-minded and progressive with gender," she said.
"We have a different sense of humour. I'm quite quirky and edgy, and I'll say things, then she doesn't know what to do with me. She's got a dad sense of humour and it's dorky. Amanda can be very controlling too."
Just before their breakup in the second commitment ceremony, Tash also went public with her new girlfriend- and Amanda even called them a "pack of fake plastic try hard moles."
Looks like those bridesmaids were right after all!

Hayley and David: The signs point to no

Things have gone to s---. Literally. (Image: Nine Network)
Their wedding was something out of a fairytale, but after their big day things turned sour between truck driver Dave and finance worker Hayley.
Things got off to a bumpy start on the honeymoon when Hayley teased her hubby about his $25 an hour wage but the two patched things up after the first week.
However, the Daily Mail unearthed a shocking video of David scrubbing faeces off a toilet bowl with his wife's toothbrush!
Hayley "found it completely vile", a close pal told NW before adding, "Like, who the hell does that?! He's a disgusting human."
Not the sort of behaviour you'd expect from your one true love...

Chris and Vanessa: We really hope so

How cute do these two look? (Image: Nine Network)
Bride Vanessa felt self-conscious on her big day because of her acne scars and groom Chris fretted about telling Vanessa about his son, but things seemed to be relatively drama-free at their wedding and honeymoon.
However, after the Daily Mail noticed some telling now-deleted Instagram photos, things could all be over between the pair with the publication adding that they are one of the first couples to call it quits on the show.
In Chris's post, he held a microwave meal up to the camera, adding that he was back to eating "dinners for one," while Vanessa's (uploaded three days later) showed her out on the town with her friends, including maid of honour Toobi. Well, it was sweet while it lasted.

Aleks and Ivan: This year's perfect match?

While many think Cathy and Josh could be this year's Cam and Jules, but Ivan and Aleksandra could be this year's ultimate pair.
The real estate agents, who both come from fiery Eastern European families, hit it off on their wedding day and Aleks even called him "the male version" of herself.
While they kept things hush hush, the two appeared on Fitzy and Wippa's breakfast radio show together and were reportedly holding hands when they arrived and Ivan also called his "wife", baby at the studios.
And it seems Ivan is head-over-heels for his bride. In an exclusive video for Now To Love when asked who his favourite person to stalk on social media is, he replied, "I don't really do too much stalking, maybe Aleks." And if that's not a declaration of love, we don't know what is.

Connie and Jonethen: Please be a thing

These cuties need to stay together to not destroy our faith in love. (Image: Nine Network)
Introvert Connie seemed to meet her Prince Charming in Jonethen and we really hope that they're still an item.
Rumours have circulated that Jonethen and Cathy were caught locking lips, but that was just in the first artsy trailer for the show and many predict that Jonethen and Cathy were paired together in the ads to throw the audience off the scent.
What's more, in exclusive pics obtained by NW, Jonethen was spotted flirting up a storm with a mystery brunette at Sydney's Bondi Beach
"He was acting very, very friendly towards her," one onlooker told the publication. "I definitely wouldn't have guessed that he was a married man by the way he was flirting with her."
Please please please let these two work it out!

Mishel and Steve: No chance

As the show's oldest couple, we were hoping they'd bring some maturity to the show. (Image: Nine Network)
After Steve dropped the bombshell that he'd cheated in a previous relationship, it looked like his marriage with Mishel wouldn't be as rock-solid as we'd hoped.
And it seems as if the experiment's oldest couple could be over, judging by some awkward photos snapped back in November when filming was still going on.
In the pics obtained by the Daily Mail, Mishel and Steve appear to have a very tense conversation outside the apartment where they lived throughout production. And when you see the photos, they don't look loved-up in the slightest.
And after Steve was slammed for the way he spoke to Mishel and she herself opted to leave at the second commitment, it's not looking like these two will patch it up.

Michael and Stacey: Bye Felicia

Could this be the worst pairing ever? (Image: Nine Network)
Stacey and Michael's wedding was cringe worthy to watch and seeing as the only moment Stacey showed interest in her husband is a "successful businessman", it seems like they won't be there for each other for rich or for poor.
Michael's drinking and poor behaviour on the honeymoon just reinforced this and despite their united fronts at dinner parties, it's rumoured that both are set to cheat this season.
Groom Michael all but confessed it telling TV WEEK, "We were having a few drinks and hanging out. We were all joking and having a laugh. We were mucking around with the phone and were like, 'Oh, how funny would this be if this got out?'"
"We were fully clothed, just being stupid, being loose, having fun, not really understanding the implications of what rumours can do to your life."
