How does Married At First Sight work?
Married At First Sight sees single people looking for a relationship paired with another singleton looking for love.
The couples are matched together based on their compatibility and are selected by a team of relationship experts.
The new pairings meet for the very first time on their wedding day when they said 'I do' and become husband and wife. They then move in together and live as a married couple, while interacting with the other brides and grooms in the experiment.

When does someone leave Married At First Sight?
Each week the couples take part in a commitment ceremony where they discuss their relationship with the experts and the rest of the group.
The brides and grooms then choose whether stay in the experiment with their partner, or leave the process, ending their relationship with their significant other.
However both people in the relationship need to vote to leave in order for them to exit the experiment. If one person writes 'leave' and the other writes 'stay', both must remain in the process for another week.
How does Married At First Sight end?
Married At First Sight ends with the Final Vows, which sees the remaining couples make a decision on whether to continue into the outside world with their partner, or leave the relationship for good.
Over the years many couples have chosen to stay together, however there have been some shocking twists in the past so viewers will be on the edge of their seats during the finale.
