How are the MAFS graduates doing a year after yes?

At the time of publication, it is exactly one year since Sonny and Dylan pledged their undying fidelity to each other in ‘Married at First Sight’. High time to look back at all the couples who took the plunge last season.

“I thought it was intense that we had to keep our relationship a secret for seven months”

Once again, seven brave couples say ‘yes’ not only to this TV adventure, but also to their still unknown love. Blindly, they tie the knot in the hope that their trust in the experts and science will tie them to the right one. For some, that dream has truly come true.

Sonny and Dylan

Sonny and Dylan couldn’t be happier together. They are one of the successful couples of the past season Married at First sight and after twelve months it is still thick.

After filming, they will shout their love from the rooftops, but they will have to wait until the series has aired in its entirety. “I thought it was intense that we had to keep our relationship a secret for seven months,” Sonny says LINDA. “We were really in hiding.”

Still, the couple didn’t just have to hide at home: They could visit family and friends “who had also signed a nondisclosure agreement.” “But after a while you’ve had it.”

In the video below, the couple – who have been married for a year – tell how things are going.

Sander and Astrid

Despite their promising start, the marriage between Sander and Astrid fizzles out. Nine weeks after the wedding, Sander decides to end their union. Although there is no romantic click, Astrid is initially shocked by the decision.

“The butterflies weren’t there, but I thought, this is just the beginning,” she says. “I thought: now it doesn’t start until after the couple’s weekend. Then you’re in real life.” It is unexpected that Sander does not want to do more for her.

As far as is known, Astrid enjoys herself mainly with her friends, and there is no talk of a new love yet. Sander dates and hopes that the early love between him and a new woman will blossom into something beautiful.

Joep and Caroline

For every success story, there are a couple that don’t make it. Although sparks seem to fly at first, Joep soon makes it clear that he is not interested in Caroline despite the marriage. Something that obviously hurts her a lot. She still blames Joep for not being given a real chance.

It is unknown how they feel now. The ex-lovers are removing their social media accounts after uproar over their participation.

Jan and Birgitte

The total mismatch of the season is Jan and Birgitte. They both hope to find love, but are matched with someone who doesn’t really suit them. It is therefore not surprising that no romantic feelings arise and that both Jan and Birgitte choose to hand over the wedding ring.

The two are both left with friendships from the adventure, but they are still looking for love.

Maurice and Arjan

Maurice and Arjan may have had the worst experience. Arjan panics at the wedding, then throws in the towel before the honeymoon. Since Maurice is not yet done with the experiment, the experts give him another chance. He goes on dates with three men before deciding that he wants to move on with Dennis.

Unfortunately, that relationship does not last. As far as we know, both Maurice and Arjan are still single. After MAFS Arjan gets to know a new man, but for security reasons they have to end the relationship.
