If 13 seasons of 'Married At First Sight' have taught us anything, it's that no two people are alike. But when it comes to marriage, it does help if you and your spouse have the same wavelength. One thing is for sure, Season 11's Bennett Kirschner and Amelia Fatsi know how to keep it interesting.

If you're curious to know what they and past 'MAFS' couples have been up to, then get ready for Season 2 'Married at First Sight: Couples Cam'. A self-shot series, 'Couples Cam' gives us a look into the lives of 'MAFS' couples, which involves dealing with a pandemic to working on their relationship and in some cases, taking care of their growing families.

The couple's storyline had an unexpected twist

Bennett Kirschner and Amelia Fatsi were Season 11's fun and quirky couple. Kirschner is an artistic director of a theatre company while Fatsi, who was studying to be a doctor, was in her residency. Fans fell in love instantly. The couple was fun, a little quirky and laid-back. They both seemed open and ready for an adventure, making them seem like the perfect match.

Kirschner did not seem to have much luck in love until his marriage, where he found a perfect partner in Fatsi. But it was at the end of the show that people started questioning if the couple would last or not. Fatsi had revealed that she was never really ready for marriage. However, she saw this show as a fun way to get on reality TV and take on a new adventure. Kirschner was taken aback by this truth and fans were left wondering if this would be their make it or break it moment. But on decision day, the couple chose to be together and they seem to have found happiness in each other ever since.  

They live in separate states

Both Kirschner and Fatsi are incredibly independent people who have vastly different careers. Seeing that Kirschner's work has him in New Orleans and Fatsi's residency is in Virginia, the two are currently in a long-distance marriage. However, they do take time out for each other and are committed to making their relationship work. After all, absence makes the heart grow fonder.

The couple keeps the magic alive in unique ways

Kirschner and Fatsi aren't your average date night couple. The two of them love to keep it interesting. So it comes as no surprise that their idea of dates are slightly out of the box. As reported by SoapDirt, the couple went paragliding together in December. Talk about being adventurous.
