They've faced some pretty big obstacles in their short, mainly clandestine TV relationship, but the forbidden love between Married At First Sight's Jess and Dan is about to be tested like never before.
"He's been charged with aggravated fraud and there's every chance he's going behind bars soon," says a family friend close to the stocky, former Currumbin Eagles rugby league player.

"Word is he might go inside for six months and that's really going to put pressure on his new relationship with Jess."
It was lust at first sight for the pouty-lipped 27-year-old when she spotted "intruder" Dan gatecrashing the MAFS dinner party with his new wife Tamara.
Jess made no secret of the fact that she wanted Dan for herself, choosing to stay in the experiment with her very-unhappy husband Mick purely so she could continue to see Dan, 35.
And in a move that's sure to shock critics of their romance, it seems Jess is willing to stand by her man if he ends up doing a stint behind bars.
"Jess is used to being around people who are a bit rough around the edges," says the source, acknowledging the reality star's reported bikie links and heavily inked former boyfriends.
"But if I were Dan I'd be wondering if she would want all of this new drama in her life."
The Gold Coast-based former telemarketer was charged in 2016 for his alleged part in a $20 million scam.
He's one of seven people accused of cold-calling 600 vulnerable Queenslanders and "manipulating vulnerable people" to become directors of 12 fake companies. It's understood the punters were asked to pay between $500 and $1000 to road-test investment software.

"Dan is really worked up and at breaking point at the moment," leaks the family friend, adding there's extra pressure now that Jess has moved to Queensland to be with the father-of-one.
"There's a lot of love there, but they argue a lot – especially after watching MAFS together."
Dan's next court date is scheduled for May 3.
