ABOUT MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT
The lucky number seventh season Married at First Sight heads to Texas where six Dallas area singles yearning for a life-long partnership agree to a provocative proposal: getting legally married to a stranger the moment they first meet, at the altar. A panel of experts – psychologist Dr. Jessica Griffin, sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz and marriage counselor, Pastor Calvin Roberson, will create what they believe are three compatible couples based on scientific matchmaking and continue to counsel and mentor the couples throughout the season. The series captures each couple’s journey as they go from wedding, to honeymoon, to early nesting, to the daily struggles of working on their marriage. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to divorce?

Married At First Sight is produced by Kinetic Content (a Red Arrow Studios company). Executive producers for Married At First Sight are Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Sam Dean, Kimberly Goodman, Ally Simpson and Jen McClure-Metz from Kinetic Content and Gena McCarthy from Lifetime.
