Unlike its American counterpart, audiences of "Married at First Sight" Australia still believe in the experiment, inspiring Channel 9 to move ahead with season 2, which will include same-sex couples as well.
The reality series has started posting applications for 2016 all over the internet, and in the application form, is a clear box for the gender of the partner you are looking for.
Channel 9 had said even before the confirmation of season 2, that if "Married at First Sight" were to be locking in for another season, they would definitely add a provision to include gay couples as well. However, what makes "Married at First Sight" Australia different from its sister shows across the world, is that instead of holding actual marriage ceremonies, the series only holds commitment ceremonies.
Although many critique the show for mocking marriage, this would prove lucky for the gay participants, as gay marriage is will not legally recognised in the island nation.
In season 1 of "Married at First Sight", four couples – Michael & Roni, Clare & Lachlan, Zoe & Alex and Michelle & James – were matched, and of them, Roni & Michael called it quits before the final decision. Among the three couples that decided to stay together, Michelle-James and Lachlan-Clare also separating, making Zeo-Alex the only couple that still remain together.
