This season of Married At First Sight has seen an array of breakdowns – everything from cheating scandals to contestants throwing tantrums for not getting their way (hello, Nasser?), but one couple that has been consistent is John Robertson and Melissa Walsh and the stars have revealed what their secret to a happy relationship is.
Speaking to Confidential, Robertson revealed that while the younger couples “ended in tears”, he and his bride wanted to take things step by step.
“We wanted to get to know each other as friends first, rather than just jump into bed on the honeymoon — which we’ve seen has ended in tears,” he said.
On last night's episode, John chose to stay with this blonde bride in the final commitment ceremony.
“John and I, being in our 50s, have been in relationships we’ve tried to force. So we just said let’s see how we feel with each other,” Walsh said.
“We were just trying be as practical as can be, letting things evolve naturally in an unnatural environment.”
As the couple try to give their relationship the best shot, they also opened up about fellow faves Sarah Roza and Telverne “Telv” Williams.
“They have a good foundation. While it’s a little bit tumultuous, there are deep feelings between the two of them,” Walsh said.
John claims: “They’ve only had their moments because they are so passionate about each other.”
We hope so!
