Four surprising Married at First Sight couples are still together
In fact, here are some truly surprising couples from Married at First Sight that continue to thrive.
Miles Williams & Karen Landry
Miles Williams and Karen Landry wed during Season 11 of Married at First Sight. Looking in, this couple seemed like a perfect fit for each other. But, they had a difficult time connecting. Karen wanted more of an “alpha male.” And, Miles didn’t think Karen was affectionate enough for him.
Today, the couple have a YouTube and Instagram together. They dote on how happy and in love they are. Likewise, they are very affectionate on camera.
Jamie Otis & Doug Hehner
Jamie Otis didn’t find love during her appearance on The Bachelor. So, she decided to take a stab at marrying a stranger on Married at First Sight. As fans of the Lifetime series recall, Jamie was not feeling her husband Doug Hehner. In fact, fans of the series recall a very dramatic meltdown. This meltdown followed with her bridesmaids encouraging her to push forward.
Now, Jamie Otis very openly admitted she just didn’t find Doug Hehner to be that attractive. Surprisingly, this relationship turned out very well. Today, Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner celebrate seven years of marriage. They have children. And, Jamie proudly hosts Married at First Sight: Unfiltered.
Elizabeth Bice & Jamie Thompson
MAFS fans thought Elizabeth Bice and Jamie Thompson was too much fire in a single relationship. Many feared the marriage would take an explosive turn in time. Despite a few heated arguments… They seem happy together. Likewise, they’ve even discussed the desire to have children!
Shawniece Jackson & Jephte Pierre
Fans of the Lifetime series know Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre got very physical very fast. In fact, fans learned the couple were with child before their season – Season 6 – even concluded.
