‘Married at First Sight’: Did Amelia and Bennett Stay Together After Decision Day?
Bennett, 28, and Amelia, 27, might have had very different professions – a playwright/theatre director and a resident physician, respectively – but they were similar in nearly every other way. Both creative, quirky, and free-spirited, they appeared to share similar values and worldviews, as well as chemistry.
Amelia and Bennett said yes to each other on Decision Day. And on the October 29 Married at First Sight reunion, hosted by Kevin Frazier, they revealed that they continued to say “yes” to each other each and every day afterward.
Bennett moved to Virginia to be with Amelia
After Decision Day, Bennett moved to a small home in Richmond, Virginia, for his wife’s residency. Amelia told Frazier that she would be practicing family medicine, explaining that she loved the field because she could help people and families of all ages and backgrounds.
The Married at First Sight star also told Frazier that, while it was a little overwhelming to be working as a clinician during the COVID-19 crisis, it was great to be able to help others.
Some Married at First Sight fans were concerned about Bennett’s future in a new city, since his creative work as an artistic director was so tied to the city of New Orleans. But the 28-year-old got a job earlier than he thought he might. He became a solar consultant – the perfect fit for him, Frazier pointed out, due to his passion for environmentalism.
The couple reflected on how their relationship had changed since Decision Day
As for what had changed in their marriage after Decision Day, Amelia and Bennett explained that, just six months into their relationship, they had far less time together.
“More than anything, what’s been different from the start of our relationship – when neither of us had a full-time job – now Amelia has immersed herself into this job,” Bennett told Frazier. Amelia often had to be at work from 5:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day, sometimes leaving little time for them to be together outside of late nights and evenings.
Amelia added that she appreciated Bennett’s flexibility. In fact, they often went to bed together at 8 p.m. so she could get enough sleep.
“It’s just a new kind of circadian rhythm that we’re calibrating to,” Bennett said, adding that they were remaining “transparent and communicative about the challenges” of their new schedule.
Despite some exhaustion, the Married at First Sight stars said they were both excited about their jobs and their future together.
“We’re both engaged and feeling pretty fulfilled,” Bennett said optimistically, “and we’re very grateful to have the kind of support network we have in one another.”
The newlyweds said they weren’t rushing to start a family just yet
Frazier asked about Bennett’s relationship with Amelia’s family, who lived nearby in Virginia. The couple told him they saw Amelia’s family about once a week for dinner. Fortunately, Bennett said, they’d been “getting along wonderfully” so far.
As for starting their own family, Amelia revealed that that would probably come later. Neither spouse was quite ready for that milestone just yet, and they didn’t want to rush things.
“Because we were talking about it so much on, like, the third day of being with each other,” the Married at First Sight star told Frazier, “and it was all so out of order…now that we’re sort of free and on our own, we’re sort of just talking about normal stuff.”
Needless to say, Bennett and Amelia seem to be going strong in their marriage. Married at First Sight fans were thrilled to watch their love story unfold, so many of them would be happy to see the couple on future reunion specials or spinoffs.
