‘Married At First Sight’: Which Couples From the Series Are Still Together in 2021?
Married At First Sight first premiered in the United States back in 2014; it stemmed from a similar Danish TV show. Since then, numerous couples have married and divorced, but each season it seems that there is at least one lucky couple who has a strong connection that they want to see through.
The show has been running for nearly seven years. But who is still together?
Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner have been married since ‘Married At First Sight’ season 1
Married at First Sight stars Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner are the only couple between seasons 1 through 4 who have remained together. The couple’s season certainly came with its ups and downs, but ultimately, they decided to continue with their marriage at the end of the show.
On their first wedding anniversary in 2015, the two renewed their vows, and they’ve been going strong ever since. In August 2017, the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Henley Grace. Jamie later opened up about going through two miscarriages after welcoming Henley. Jamie and Doug announced that their second child, a son named Hendrix, was born in May 2020.
Only 2 ‘Married At First Sight’ couples between season 5 and 6 are still married
Seaons 2, 3, and 4 didn’t see any successful marriages. But once couple each from seasons 5 and 6 has remained intact. Anthony D’Amico and Ashley Petta, who wed during season 5, are still married. The two have been going strong, and Petta documents her family life on her Instagram account. The couple welcomed their first child, Mila Rose, in January 2019, and their second child, Vaeda Marie, in February 2021.
Jephte Pierre and Shawniece Jackson of season 6 have remained married as well. The two, who first tied the knot on the show in 2018, welcomed their daughter, Laura Denise, that same year. However, the couple reportedly went through marriage troubles during that first pregnancy. They spent some time apart, but they reconciled and remain a couple today.
Seasons 7, 8 and 9 of ‘Married At First Sight’ have seen several couples stay married
The only two from Married at First Sight season 7 who remain together today are Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd. The two welcomed their first child in 2019, and they recently added to the family, welcoming a son in Dec. 2020.
Season 8’s Stephanie Sersen and AJ Vollmoeller have also managed to make their relationship work. The couple’s last photo together is from Thanksgiving 2020, proving they’re still going strong. Kristine Killingsworth and Keith Dewar have also remained together, despite having somewhat of a volatile first few weeks on the show.
Deonna McNeill & Gregory Okotie from season 9 have also remained married; they’ve proven that opposites attract. In Sept. 2020, the two announced that they’re expecting their first child. Season 9’s Elizabeth Bice & Jamie Thompson also chose to continue their marriage on Decision Day and remain together today.
Seasons 10 and 11 have 3 couples who haven’t split up
Seasons 10 and 11 had a number of successful couples. Jessica Studer & Austin Hurd got along from the start, so it’s no surprise these two made it to Decision Day and beyond. The two are the only ones from season 10 to have stayed together.
Bennett and Amelia of season 11 actually knew each other prior to filming, and it’s possible that that’s what helped them develop a strong connection on the show. They’re not the only season 11 cast members who remain wed, though — Amani and Woody, plus Miles and Karen, are also still together, making season 11 one of the most successful Married at First Sight seasons ever.
