Married at First Sight premiered first on FYI television on July 8, 2014. During the reality show's fifth season, it moved to its present location on Lifetime television.
The show had only three couples for the first seven seasons. During the eighth and ninth seasons, there were four couples. From Season 10 to the present time, there have been five couples. That means there have been 54 couples who met and married at the altar over 14 seasons. Thirty-three couples decided to stay married on Decision Day. By the time of the reunion, many of them had decided to get a divorce. Today, more than half of the couples have since divorced. That leaves only 15 couples still married.
Seven of the couples have children. Three couples have more than one child. All ten of the Married at First Sight babies are pictured above.
