Each season of 'Married At First Sight' always sees one couple whose drama is often over the top. This season, it was Zack and Michaela who bagged the title. Everything seemed to go stunningly well for the pair until Zack got Covid-19 during their honeymoon. With that particular time compromised, their relationship from there on was a ticking time bomb.

Each time they tried to make their marriage work, it somehow ended up in even more explosive fights, with Michaela getting violent and Zack removing himself from the situation entirely. However, the two of them continuously expressed the desire to stay together, and decision day was not different.

As they sat down with the experts, Michaela explained that even though a lot transpired in the past few weeks, she has learned from it and having seen her actions wants to work on herself. Zack, too, opened up with a heartfelt letter about their marriage, going as far as to claim that Michaela is an amazing woman, only second to his mother. For him, actions matter and the fact that even though they argued, she showed up each time meant that she really did care for him. So when it came down to making the final choice, everyone was confused that Michaela said yes to being married while Zack said no.

Zack stated that he was saying no to their past, and by getting a divorce, they could explore their romance from a fresh start. The experts countered that getting a divorce meant the relationship ended and if he wanted to be with Michaela, 'no' was not the answer here. However, Zack stood by his choice to get a divorce, stating that Michaela had misinterpreted what he wanted for them.

Fans, at this point, were done with their antics. "The mixed signals Zack was giving. Like wtf. Does he want to just be boyfriend/girlfriend instead of husband/wife?? #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight #marriedatfirstsightHouston" tweeted a fan. "If you want to work on your marriage why get a divorce?? Bye Zack! #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS" added a fan. "Michaela said Zack played her and I have to agree. He played her at her own game She thought she was the only one who can get in her feelings and overreact. He proved her wrong and hit her where it hurts #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS" tweeted a fan.

"Zack needs to be in a hospital too. He’s an emotional terrorist  #mafsHouston #MAFS" added another. "Zack is the type who likes to come in & knock the dust off. Then goes home & don’t talk to you til he’s ready to dip in again. He’s gonna waste 2 yrs of Micheala’s time & she gonna go to jail at least once behind this. #MAFS" tweeted a fan. "Lmaoooooooooooo Zack is a sociopath. Why would you cry and say them nice things then turn around and say no #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight" said a fan. "People with abandonment issues will hold on to the slightest bit of hope because of the fear of being left alone. I hope Michaela gets the help and support that she needs to move on. Shame on you Zack for playing with her mind and heart  #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS" pointed out a fan.
