Are Booka and Brett from Married at First Sight Australia still together?
No, the couple are no longer together and left the show before it finished.
Mental health worker Booka, 31, and psychology student and electrician Brett, 31, went to the South Coast in New South Wales for their honeymoon.
However, after a string of arguments, the pair ended things on good terms and decided to stay friends.
Booka saying at the final commitment ceremony: “I’ve written leave but it’s a smiley face and a love heart because Brett’s a legend.”
Brett added: “I think there was such a tug of war going on between us to try and understand one another and then things eventually exploded and then once the dust settled things evened out and I think we found where we were with one another.”
The MAFS star later explained the real reason they decided to go their separate ways, adding: “Booka and I were hanging out one day and we were just having a chat about life and all kinds of things.
“I think we both just came to the realisation that it wasn’t something we wanted to pursue outside of the experiment.”
