MAFS couple John and Melissa confirm split in emotional post

Much-loved Married at First Sight couple John and Melissa have confirmed they’re no longer together.

The pair, who seemed extremely loved up and well-matched on the popular TV dating show, both broke the sad news in separate, but very similar statements to fans on Instagram today.

“It has been a very difficult decision and it makes us both very sad to say we have decided to no longer continue as a couple,” they wrote.


“We still have the utmost respect for each other but have found significant differences in our lives and expectations in relationships.

“We have spoken at length about how to make it work and have been spending time with each other to let our relationship unfold but both agree it doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere.

“We still care deeply for each other as friends and will never forget the incredible times we have had together.

“We lived together so easily and it reminded us both how wonderful it is to be married and have a supportive, loving partner which is something neither of us have had for a long time.”
