Following two disastrous seasons in which all three of its arranged marriages resulted in divorce, Tuesday’s “Married at First Sight” Season 4 reunion special ended with good news: Two couples are still married six months later — tied with Season 1 for the FYI network reality show’s best success rate.
The secret to the show’s matches? A series of changes made this past season, including additional questions on the personality evaluation, two new experts and a more active role in the couples’ well-being.
“Nobody’s ever done this exact experiment before, and so we’re becoming more intuitive and more scientific in terms of what we ask and what we look for,” Pepper Schwartz, Ph.D., one of the series’ matchmakers, tells The Post. This season, the experts added questions about applicants’ openness and had them submit photos of past lovers to discern their physical “types.”
