Married At First Sight Australia has been around since 2015 and has matched up so many couples, we can’t keep count.

Aussies have developed a deep love for this iconic reality TV show over the years and for a very good reason… we love the drama!

There are so many shocking twists in each season and from the fights and feuds to the deep connections some people have found on the show, MAFS has made its name as one of the most popular and entertaining dating shows in the realm of reality TV.

Despite the effort put in by the three experts, MAFS’ success rate when it comes to long-lasting relationships isn’t exactly great.

For ten seasons we have watched numerous brides and grooms meet for the first time at the altar and have watched their relationships pan out over dinner parties and commitment ceremonies and while many couples prove to be doomed from the start, there are some who have stood the test of time and whose love has continued to grow, even after their time on the show. 

Below we take a look at the MAFS couples who have found themselves lucky in love and who have proved that a reality TV show can change lives.

Erin Bateman and Bryce Mohr, Season 2

Erin Bateman and Bryce Mohr appeared on season two of Married At First Sight back in 2016 … if you’re a dedicated long-time viewer we’re sure you’ll recall these two love birds! The good news is, Erin and Bryce are still together and as happy as ever! The two did break up briefly in 2017, however, their separation didn’t last long and have been together ever since, making them the longest-lasting MAFS couple. Erin and Bryce keep a relatively low profile on social media and have previously talked about how they do this intentionally as they see it to be the key to a happy relationship. 

“I don’t think it’s normal. I know personally people who portray their relationship on social media as this fairy tale, who are some of the most miserable people I’ve ever met, in terms of relationships,” Erin said to fellow MAFS star Bekka Frizza on her podcast, THE D&M. In February 2020, Erin revealed in an Instagram post that she and Bryce had bought a house together. Now, Erin regularly posts vegan recipes to her Instagram account to inspire her 45,000 followers, continuing to keep their private life out of the spotlight.

How we going here?’ Then… one thing led to another,” he continued. Evelyn and Duncan moved in together in August 2023 into a luxury townhouse in Balmain, Sydney.
