The Channel 4 show takes the wedding dramatically, as two singles say their vows the first time they look at each other.
Married At First Sight puts dating aside and skims over the engagement stage, matching two people in front of each other – on their wedding day.
While divorce may be considered for some married couples under general circumstances, viewers questioned the option of annulment.
So, can the couples on Married At First Sight get the cancellation? Let’s find out…
How does marriage work at first glance?
Two singles are matched by relationship experts and get married the day they first meet.
They are then put to the test through several challenges, including moving in together for 8 weeks, as well as going on a honeymoon (for a fee!).
Each couple regularly attends relationship counseling with experts.
They also have the choice of having a vow renewal ceremony towards the end of the series, depending on how they get along.

Can couples in the series be canceled?
- Yes, but they will have to go through legal proceedings
For example, Michael and Meka, from Married at First Sight season 10 (US), got an annulment after claiming their marriage wasn’t real.
Meka took to Instagram to tell her followers that they initially agreed to divorce, before Michael decided to try an annulment instead.
They went to a virtual court to get it annulled, Michael reportedly said he didn’t believe the televised marriage was real and that Meka’s name change had led him to believe she was hiding something.
Does Married At First Sight Pay For Divorces?
As reported by Closer, the show’s executive producer revealed that he only provides assistance “within a certain time frame” to cover legal fees.
He also said that the amount provided is very symbolic.
So while the show helps couples pay for divorces, it is likely that they may have to contribute their own share to formally annul the marriage.
