I don’t have cable so it wasn’t until I was home at my parents’ house when I first saw “Married At First Sight.” I’ll be honest at first I found it disrespectful. I appreciate the sanctity of marriage and take it seriously. It just seemed like the show was going to be making a mockery of the whole thing, all for some ratings.
But then I started watching. And after the first ten minutes, I was all in. All the way in. The concept was fascinating and I really believed that the couples really were adamant about being married.
