Are Ryan Oubre and Clara Berghaus divorced? Here's why 'MAFS' stars ditched vow renewal plans
Despite planning a 2022 vow renewal earlier this year, 'MAFS' stars Ryan Oubre and Clara Berghaus have taken a tough decision about their relationship
For the Season 13 couples of 'Married at First Sight', each pair is set to tie the knot and start their lives together. Or at least see how it goes before choosing to stay together forever.
But let's hope they won't be taking too much inspiration from Season 12. While three couples came out of that season married, it looks like only Briana Myles and Vincent Morales' relationship has stood the test of time. So yes, if you were wondering, Ryan and Clara Berghaus have also decided to call it quits, along with Erik Lake and Virginia Coombs.

Ryan and Clara had an interesting run on the show. While they seemed compatible for the most part, with Ryan becoming quite the dog dad to Clara's husky, Miska, their apparent lack of chemistry was glaring. The couple shared a range of intimacy issues, such as not sleeping together despite being married, and Clara even claimed that she used to help him out sexually while gaining nothing in return. Plus, there was also the question of religion where they didn't quite agree, as Ryan was religious and grew up in the church, while Clara had gone down that path and chosen to stay away from it.
However, post the show, the two decided to stay together and seemed to have worked through their issues. They were even planning a grand New Years Eve vow renewal ceremony, seeing that their TV wedding happened alongside their other castmates with a limited set of friends and family. However, the pair have now decided to end their relationship, as reported by PEOPLE.
"After taking some time away from cameras, we have reached that point in our marriage where we know it's better to go our separate ways," they told PEOPLE. "It's not an easy decision to make it, nor we do we take these next steps lightly. Grateful to all who stood by us, and continue to stand by us as we make this very difficult decision. It goes without saying, we remain friends and hope for nothing but the best for each other," the former couple added.
Clara even took to social media to talk about her split. "After an interesting turn of events," she posted, alongside coverage of the news, "it looks like I will be relating to Taylor Swift's rerecording of the Red album after all." She even replied to a fan's comment on TikTok regarding the couple's 2022 vow renewal plans. "If you know anyone who wants a couple hundred dollars worth of New Year's Eve party decorations, send them my way," she wrote to a fan. The pair were planning a celebration and were also looking to invite their fellow 'Married at First Sight' castmates, seeing that they had grown rather close during filming.
Here's hoping both of them can find what they're looking for. Till then, all eyes are on the cast of Season 13, to see which of these couples make it out unscathed.
'Married at First Sight' Season 13 premieres with a three-hour episode on July 21 at 8 pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
