For the couples of 'Married at First Sight', their marriages so far have not been an easy ride. Nearly all of these couples started their relationship with a bang, seeing that they were all in with passion and more. However, the heat seems to have fizzled out, and now, they have to confront some genuine issues.

Ryan is still struggling to process any romantic emotion for Brett, while Johnny isn't as forthcoming with Bao about their relationship. Even Jose and Rachel hit a very rough patch when Jose's controlling ways made it ways to the surface. Among all these issues, the most unlikely couple that has persevered is Myrla and Gil

That man needs to feel appreciated for the patience and effort he's constantly putting in, otherwise he's going to ask for a divorce and break your slow moving heart #mafs" added another. 
"Myrla's skill of not being offended ever is what is keeping this marriage. Gil would have already offended me so many times. You all are not giving this woman her props. #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight" tweeted a user.
