I might be a little late catching on to this, but my latest streaming obsession has been the reality tv show, Married at First Sight.
And just in case you're wondering, it's exactly what it sounds like.
A team of experts matches individuals together based on their personality, preferences, and lifestyle. And the first time these individuals meet each other is on their wedding day at the altar!
They go on a honeymoon, move in together, merge their families and friends, and go through various exercises and counseling sessions held by the experts that matched them together. After 8 weeks, they decide if they want to stay married or get a divorce.
It's so funny to see how blissful the couple is until about 2 weeks before "Decision Day." Around this time is typically when the emotional rollercoaster begins and the number of arguments increases.
This is also when my frustration begins with how unsure the couples become about whether or not they are "in love" yet. They talk about how they're not "there" yet but they have no idea what "there" would even be for them.
They wait around for love to fall on them like a piano from a window and proceed to jerk the other person around by sending mixed signals and creating huge arguments over small matters.
It may sound crazy, but what I wish more people understood about love is that your feelings can't tell you whether or not you're in it.
