'Married At First Sight' Grand Finale: VIDEOS + Why DID we love this season so much?

So, why did we connect so much with THIS season of 'Married At First Sight'? It's the fifth season, after kicking off with such huge disdain in the first year especially, way before same sex marriage laws were passed, and people were generally confused about the format, and questioned how people could possibly do life stages in reverse: meet, get married, get to know each other, commit, maybe marry for real and have kids.

Now, several years later, 'MAFS' has well and truly ignited the imagination of viewers who never deigned to give the show their viewing numbers, even kids who insisted to their adult relatives: "You HAVE to watch 'Married At First Sight'!"

And so, why?

We think it's because the issues which arose were relatable.

Sarah and Telv arguing before a family dinner over social media, in this instance, Snapchat. And apparently ignoring her in the process.

Nasser wanting his space after years as a bachelor and having never lived with a woman.

Blurred boundaries on what constitutes cheating (emotional, physical, sexting, etc) and how frail relationships can be, especially when these elements are thrown in the mix. 

An older couple wanting to find love but still raising teens (thanks to childbirth later in life) while embracing grandmother-hood.

It was all there!

Oh, and let's not forget having a go at a relationship, then it falters, then you try again and an ex is inexplicably jealous when she's the one who dumped you, and you dumped her...

And, breaking the bro code on boy's nights out.

Missed the whole hoopla or just the finale?

The BEST bits are here... you are welcome.
