It was a definite first in the history of Married At First Sight when fans realized that Amelia had actually met Bennett before the show. While many wondered if this reality TV bride and groom had hooked-up previously, Amelia, 27, and Bennett, 28, did show signs of super-strong chemistry right off the bat. With their similar quirky personalities and matching moods, the Lifetime pair did disappoint a few fans by their big revelation being just an innocent mutual friend. Amelia and Bennett, though smitten by each other’s eccentricity, had their fair share of problems, including her new job in particular. The bride’s dream to become a doctor called for Bennett’s uprooting himself from a city that was his home for six years. To add to their woes, the newlyweds had to quarantine together during the coronavirus pandemic. But as it is with all feel good fairytales, this made-for-each-other Married At First Sight couple has their happily ever after all figured out.
Amelia and Bennett were the first couple to face the experts Dr. Pepper, Pastor Cal, and Dr. Viviana Coles on Decision Day after four months of togetherness. The MAFS pair discussed the strain that COVID-19 put on their marriage but, also shared how it added an interesting dynamic to their relationship. “In this moment that we’re going through such strange, intense, unpredictable times, I felt so lucky,” Amelia confessed, before thanking Bennett for giving her “this other lens on what was going on in the world.” The very much in love Bennett looked into Amelia’s eyes and gushed, “You’ve helped me stay afloat,” as he revealed that this has been the first serious romantic relationship he’s been in where “a sense of love and adoration has not been coupled with a sense of danger.”
Amelia spoke about having to move to Virginia as soon as the interview ended, and also how Bennett had told her that moving would boost his creativity. “It’s been nothing but a source of joy, having you in my life,” Amelia’s husband told her before showing off his surprise. It was Bennett revealing a tattoo of Amelia’s initials with a heart on his booty that made their fans believe that they were rooting for “the greatest MAFS couple of all time!”
The success story leads of Married At First Sight currently stay in Virginia and are of course, still married. Since it’s Amelia’s first year at the job, she’s been working from 5 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. every day which is why they attended the reunion via video call. Host Kevin Frazier spoke about 2020 being a wild ride and the world needing the positivity that Amelia and Bennett exude to which she agreed that, “It feels really good to be contributing as much as I can and helping people.” Amelia shared that her specialty is family medicine, and Bennett too, revealed that he now has a full-time job as a solar consultant helping people switch to solar power in their home. The MAFS pair did confess that barely getting to spend “nine hours together in a day” including sleep hours has been putting a strain in their relationship, but Bennett added in his impeccable English that, “a new kind of circadian rhythm that we’re calibrating to.”
The couple has not been focusing on kids as of now, as they “feel fulfilled” with their hectic schedules, but they do make time for Amelia’s family by meeting them every week. Bennett’s bohemian lifestyle and Amelia’s strenuous career as a doctor might have not made Married At First Sight fans believe that they would last for long. But now, most can agree that just like Bennett’s bum tattoo, this Lifetime pair is going to stay together for their entire lifetime, and more.
