Lifetime’s controversial series, Married at First Sight, returns with a new season this Wednesday. The show, known as a “dynamic social experiment,” is set to bring 10 singles and turn them into married couples.
Relationship experts Pastor Cal, Dr. Pepper, and Dr. Viviana Coles bring together two strangers and get them married. The two-hour episode features the couple going through a wedding, honeymoon, and everything that happens between a newlywed, for eight weeks.
After two months, the couples can take a call whether they want to stay in the marriage or get a divorce.
The official synopsis of Married at First Sight reads:
“Season 14 is destined to be romantic, surprising and wickedly entertaining as ten brave singles meet their stranger spouses at the altar and enter into a marriage without ever meeting before.”
