How to watch

You can watch Season 13 of 'Married at First Sight' on Lifetime.


As with the previous seasons of 'MAFS', Season 13 follows the same format -- five couples will meet for the very first time as they walk down the aisle in an intimate ceremony consisting of 25 family and friends.


These two people are strangers, looking to find love and have been paired together by the expert panel after a thorough vetting process. Post the wedding, it is up to them to make their marriage work, as they navigate through their group honeymoon, moving in together and dealing with all the baggage that comes with being a couple. After three months, the couple gets to decide if they've truly found the one or choose to go their separate ways.


As per the official synopsis -- "Off the heels of the most-watched season ever of Married at First Sight in franchise history, the Critic's Choice Award-winning hit series keeps growing as the show heads to Texas for season 13, premiering with a three-hour episode, July 21 at 8 pm ET/PT on Lifetime. Season 13 is set to be the most romantic and surprising season yet as ten brave singles meet their new spouse at the altar and enter into a marriage at first sight.


The memorable season will also feature 'MAFS' first Asian-American couple who celebrate their marriage with a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony and because everything is bigger and better in Texas, the season wouldn't be complete without horseback riding, skeet shooting, home cooking and BBQ! As the experiment goes on some marriages will survive and one husband gets caught in a situation that no one saw coming.


Each week will feature two-hour episodes and capture each couple's emotional journey as they go from wedding to honeymoon, early nesting and eventually dealing with the daily struggles of working on their marriage. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together for a happily ever after, or decide to divorce and go their separate ways?"



Rachel and Jose
Rachel, 33, hasn't lost her faith in love, despite her recent breakup and her own parents' divorce. Now, she's hoping to find her own happily ever after. Jose, 35, grew up in a middle-class family in Pearland. Although his family had their struggles, he was always cared for. Jose wants a family of his own but has lucked out when it comes to meeting women who want something more long-term.

Bao and Johnny
35-year-old Bao is the daughter of Vietnamese refugee parents. Bao never really considered marriage up until now, but on entering her 30s, she figured she might want someone to grow old with after all. 


35-year-old Johnny from Houston was raised by a single mother who worked hard to provide for him and his sister. Seeing his parents divorce, he's rather specific about the qualities he wants in a partner but hasn't had any luck finding her to date.
