Evelyn began her final vows by saying that she’s “developed genuine strong feelings” for Rupert. However, Evelyn quickly made it clear that she did not want to be with Rupert romantically.

“Your words and actions have been hard for me to comprehend. It took you six weeks to take me on a single date and that was only when I asked you. And that says a lot. Someone who sees my worth would have put his ego aside and fought for me, as I fought for you every single day in this experiment,” she said before adding:

“So, for this reason, I choose not to continue on this relationship.”

Luckily, there were no hard feelings as Rupert also didn’t want to continue the relationship. Before the couple kissed goodbye, Rupert told Evelyn, “I really do hope you find the love of your life because you deserve that.” What a sweet and amicable breakup!

Tahnee and Ollie

Tahnee broke down in (happy) tears during her final vows. “It’s hard for me to picture what life would look like without you in it. Ollie, I am falling in love with you and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us,” Tahnee said.

In his final vows, Ollie spoke about how hard it will be for him and Tahnee to be in a long distance relationship – he lives in Perth and she lives in Sydney. But then, adorably, Ollie said:

“Tahnee, it doesn’t matter where I am. We could be anywhere, as long as I’m with you. This is not the end of our experiment; we’re just getting started. Am I falling in love with you? Yep.”

Lyndall and Cameron

Lyndall, after a tumultuous few weeks with Cameron, finally stood her ground and told Cam how badly he treated her.

“I constantly had to beg for a shred of affection, your time, your attention and support when I was hurting… I drove myself insane trying to figure out how to be the partner you wanted. I’ve realised that there was never anything I could do to be the partner you wanted because you simply don’t want one,” she said.

Lyndall added, “This entire relationship has been on your terms and your terms alone,” before she ultimately broke up with Cam.

Then, just as Cam was about to start his final vows, Lyndall essentially said that she wouldn’t change her mind, so there was no point for him to read her his vows. In a burst of anger, Cam threw his vows on the ground and said, “Perfect, you can have them then,” before storming off and demanding MAFS producers get him a car.

Layton and Melinda

In his final vows, Layton did acknowledge that he and Melinda’s relationship was at times “stressful” and “tough”. But ultimately he revealed he wanted to be Melinda outside of the MAFS experiment.

“I’m ready to take that risk with you today… and I am falling in love with you, Mel,” Layton said.

Melinda also referenced how their relationship was tumultuous and had been full of “big highs AND big lows”. And when Mel said, “I’m not sure we can find a way to bring out the best in each other and I worry, at times, that we bring out the worst,” it seemed for a moment that she was going to break things off with Layton.

But then Melinda went on to say that she loved Layton and wanted to continue to see each other outside of Married At First Sight.

“I love you and I want us to be together,” she said.

Alyssa and Duncan

Alyssa’s final vows to Duncan were extremely loving; although she did mention the tough times the couple experienced during the MAFS experiment.

“It’s easy and magic. You can make me feel like I’m on top of the world. But the last few weeks have been incredibly difficult…” Alyssa said.

But then she added that, despite those difficult times, she couldn’t “imagine” her life without Duncan and wanted to be together.

However, Duncan made the difficult decision to break up with Alyssa. “I don’t want to hurt you and I don’t want to continue getting hurt. So, I have to say goodbye,” he said.
