“In terms of educating people when it comes to relationships, and what can be unhealthy in relationships, the show is fantastic at doing that,” Martha told the publication.
“[Married At First Sight] depicts real life in the sense that it opens the door and puts a microscope on to the positives and negatives of relationships,” Michael added.
“Gaslighting is horrible and we’ve seen first-hand what it does. I hope that there is a woman or a man, anyone sitting at home watching that, thinking, ‘I can actually relate to this.’ And it’s opening their eyes to see that maybe they’re being manipulated, maybe they can take a step back and see their relationship for what it really is and be able to learn from it.”
Martha and Michael first met when they exchanged wedding vows on Married At First Sight in 2019. While they admitted at the time that it was love at first sight, Australians around the country got to watch the adorable couple as Martha gave Michael a total makeover and they fell - hard.
And, two years after being on the show the couple is still going strong! Back at their Final Vows, Michael promised Martha he’d move from Melbourne to Sydney to be with her, and early last year, the pair moved into an apartment in Sydney’s Bondi Beach.
