Married At First Sight: Looking back at some of the couples we thought would go the distance

Happily (almost) ever after!

By Zara Zubeidi
If there's one thing we know about the relationships on Married At First Sight, it's that the marriages tend not to work out. In fact, just one couple from the series' six season run is still together.
But over the years, there have been several promising matches who seemed like they might just make it in this crazy world.
We take a look back at some of the MAFS couples we thought would go the distance.

Erin & Bryce: Still going strong!

Season two favourites Erin Bateman and Bryce Mohr are the only MAFS couple left standing after "marrying" each other.
They recently celebrated their third anniversary and have revealed plans to tie the knot in real life and start a family.
"When the time is right, we definitely want kids," Erin said.

Carly & Troy

Troy Delmege and Carly Bowyer were the couple we never saw coming after they ditched their respective partners and arrived hand-in-hand at the final dinner party. However, after nine months, it was all over.
"We've had to make the incredibly difficult decision that our lives no longer align and we are unable to make this work," Carly said.

Zoe & Alex

They had planned to say "I do" for real following the birth of their little girl Harper in 2016. But three years on from their series, Zoe Hendrix and
Alex Garner announced they'd split in April last year. Zoe later claimed Alex was the one who walked away from their relationship.

Sharon & Nick

After six months of a long-distance relationship, Sharon Marsh made the move from Perth to Melbourne to be with Nick Furphy – only for the pair to call it quits just eight weeks later.
"I soon realised I'm not in love with him," Sharon said. "I've shed many tears over this, because I really wanted it to work."

Alene & Simon

They were the darlings of season four, but on-and-off couple Simon McQuillan and Alene Khatcherian ultimately couldn't make it work, splitting in late 2017.
"Besides the distance, there was a huge difference in our goals," Alene said at the time.

Sarah & Telv

Sarah Roza and Telv Williams' relationship quickly turned sour after their split in March last year.
Things came to a head months later when the pair appeared in court after each taking out an Apprehended Violence Order, which prevented them from speaking publicly about one another.
Halfway through the current season of MAFS, it looks like we may have another successful couple to add to the list.
Everyone's favourite couple Cam and Jules still seem to be going strong well in to the series. We'll be keeping our fingers crossed!
Married At First Sight airs Monday to Wednesday, 7.30pm, and Sunday, 7pm, Nine Network.
