17 Episodes 2017 - 2017
The reality show's fifth season, set in Chicago, features three couples matched by relationship experts: the six strangers agree to get married at first sight and only have two weeks to prepare their weddings. On their honeymoons, the three couples start getting to know each other, but it isn't until they're back home that the troubles begin: from dealing with the in-laws to facing intimacy and trust issues, the newlyweds have a tough road ahead. Thankfully, the relationship experts that paired them in the first place are still around to offer advice; after eight weeks of living together, however, they will have to decide if they're willing to give married life a try or if they'd rather get a divorce.
