ET is checking back in with the couples from the first season of Married at First Sight as they enter their second year of marriage, and some are still going strong!
The FYI reality show introduced audiences to what seems like a totally insane concept: marrying off couples who meet for the first time at the altar, with mixed results.
Jamie Otis was not into her match, Doug Hehner, when the two first met, but the pair made it work. Now, Jamie admits that the couple is struggling to keep things together.
"The second year of marriage is definitely a lot more rough than the first," she told ET. "Because I think that our first year of marriage started off real low, obviously, and we had nowhere else to go but up."
Otis admits that she and Hehner have trouble seeing eye to eye on everything from residual feelings for their exes to household chores.
"If he would listen the first time, I wouldn’t have to nag," the former Bachelor contestant said. "I guess this is normal married life."
Jason Carrion and Cortney Hendrix couldn’t get enough of each other when they first met, but the couple has also had their struggles with wedded bliss since getting spontaneously hitched. It’s not all that surprising, given that none of the couples from the show’s second season are still together.
"It's hard when you're living with somebody but you have to be able to make it work no matter what circumstances you're in," Carrion said. "If you want to be married you got you know put in the work."
Season two of Married at First Sight: The First Year airs Tuesdays on FYI.
