Hey guys! If you guys are following me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or any other social media site, you are probably aware that I have been watching the show, Married At First Sight. The show is about six adults (3 men, 3 women) who volunteer to participate in an experiment where they meet with experts who analyze and survey them in order to, scientifically, determine their perfect match. They then meet their matches….on their wedding day. Yes, they really do get married.
If you aren’t following me….you need to be, first of all lol. But I have written recaps on the 2nd and 3rd episodes for Gossip & Gab, so you can go there and read more about the show and catch up with the rest of us.
I enjoy watching the show, writing the recaps, and reading comments from viewers. Many people, including myself, just don’t understand how someone can marry someone they literally just met. It takes a really brave individual to go through with it.
I decided to research and develop my own conclusions.
Now, this goes along the lines of love at first sight, which I personally do not really believe in. Why? Because I don’t think you can just look at someone and be like,”Oh, I’m in love!” That person could be gorgeous but have a terrible personality, which I feel is much more important. Secondly, I am a huge thinker and I analyze things. If I met a man and he asked me to marry him, whether at first sight or after a few years, I would still need time to think. There’s so many things to think about, especially when marriage is involved. That’s a life-changing thing, and in this case, since they’ve never even had a conversation, there’s a possibility of divorce. I don’t know about anyone else, but once I get married, I want that to be it.
Plus, I just don’t get how science alone can make people perfect for each other. People who get on dating sites or have a Catfish-type situation don’t see each other, but they do actually have a conversation and learn each other in order to develop an attraction of some sort. It’s just weird ha.
I read that some people are against the show because it makes a mockery of marriage, which I kind of agree with. It makes it out like,”Yeah, you’re gonna get married to a complete stranger, but don’t worry because you can always get a divorce!” They make it sound so much easier than it really is. I don’t know, it’s just a mind-boggling concept to me.
Nonetheless, the show is interesting. Do I believe just science alone can help find your match? Possibly. But do I think that it can help find your true love? No. I think that’s something only God and the heart can determine. But again, that’s just me.
Have you seen the show? What do you think? Do you believe at love at first sight? Express your opinions!
