The hit docuseries heads to Charlotte area singles who have agreed to a provocative proposal: getting legally married to a stranger the moment they first meet, at the altar. A panel of experts – psychotherapist Dr. Viviana Coles, sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz and marriage counselor, Pastor Calvin Roberson, will create what they believe are four compatible couples based on scientific matchmaking and continue to counsel and mentor each set of newlyweds throughout the experiment. The ninth season of Married At First Sight moves to its new night, Wednesdays, premiering on June 12th at 9pm EST/PST.
The series captures each couple’s journey as they go from wedding, to honeymoon, to early nesting, to the daily struggles of working on their marriage. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to divorce?
