Married At First Sight Viewers Shocked As Wife Slams 'Boring' Husband

Married At First Sight Viewers Shocked As Wife Slams 'Boring' Husband

Turns out that marrying someone straight after meeting them isn't always the fairytale you might think.

Some viewers of Married At First Sight were left fuming after Thursday's episode. If you don't know what that is (and that's a definite possibility) it's about as simple as it sounds.

Two people meet up after having been scientifically (sort of) matched with each other and get legally married straight away. The programme then shows how they get on and whether they stay together or not.

Well, two of the people pitched into this are Richard and Harriet. Their wedding was shown last week, but already - and slightly predictably - the cracks are starting to show.

You'd almost think that it might be a good idea to get to know someone before you get married to them. Ridiculous.

You see, Richard owns a dog called Merlin that he really loves. Like, REALLY loves. He even rehearsed his first dance with her. Never mind that Merlin is a boy's name, there is a bigger problem.

His scientifically matched partner, Harriet, is actually a cat person. This is a pretty big deal.

During the show, Harriet told the camera: "Where the dog is concerned, there's some level of trepidation because I'm not actually a dog person, dare I say it.

"It's a different lifestyle and not one that I'm used to.

"I don't know if I'm going to end up attached to the dog so I'm not going to say anything just yet. I'm going to leave it a couple of weeks."

Later on in the show there was a shot of Merlin trying to play with Harriet, but she was having none of it. She just went back onto her Kindle and left the dog to please itself.

She then had go at her husband after he bought her a board game. Some people are never happy, are they?

She said: "I haven't actually connected. There's no spark there. The conversation doesn't flow back and forth like it should.

"The kind of mundane coming home, having dinner, watching TV and going to bed every single night - it's not what I'm looking for.

"And the kind of looking after the dog as well when you add that into it - it's a different lifestyle to what I have currently - it's not what I signed up to."

Needless to say, Twitter has an opinion on this - most of them think that dogs are great and that Harriet is being unfair.

Imagine, right? Imagine going on telly to marry a total stranger. Oh wait.
