In season five of “Married at First Sight,” Chi-Town based singles yearning for a life-long partnership agree to a provocative proposal: getting legally married to a stranger the moment they first meet. A team of experts that includes sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz; communication and relationship expert, Rachel DeAlto; and marriage counselor, Pastor Calvin Roberson, create what they believe are three compatible couples based on scientific matchmaking. The couples will not meet until they walk down the aisle and see each other face-to-face, for the first time, at the altar. The series will capture each couple’s journey as they go from wedding, to honeymoon, to early nesting, to the daily struggle of working on their marriage. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to divorce?
