Married At First Sight's first gay couple call it quits

TWO couples officially call it quits tonight on Married At First Sight.

After an emotional flight response from Craig, who felt Andy wasn't being affectionate enough with him, the show's first ever gay couple finished on amicable terms.

The men met up in Sydney, after parting ways during their honeymoon in New Zealand, to talk things over and promised they would meet up for a drink after the show was over.

Andy admitted he felt a lot of pressure as the show's first same sex couple, especially in light of the current national debate around Malcolm Turnbull's proposed plebiscite.

"The fact that Craig and I were the first same sex couple to be married in this experiment, I guess there's a lot riding on us being right and us making it work due to the marriage equality debate going on at the moment," he said.

"It's a damn shame we're not still together and you can see two men living harmoniously together.

"But if I spend one day with Craig that's keeping him one day from not being with the right guy for him then I've stolen that day. He's a great guy and he's going to make somebody a lovely husband; it's just a shame that person is not me."

Things weren't so cordial between the show's other failed marriage between Jess and Dave.

Jess confronted Dave during their honeymoon about him giving her the cold shoulder and he admitted he couldn't see a future with her.

Jess was clearly hurt by the rejection just four days into their experimental relationship.

"It hit me like a ton of bricks," she said.

"It's embarrassing; it's really embarrassing.

"I went in there with the best intentions and now I got hurt, and now I'm back in Sydney by myself again."

The remaining three couples were then filmed moving in together for the next phase of the experiment.

Bella and Michael declared their love for each other, while Keller and Nicole and Monica and Mark were taking things more slowly.

The couples will meet for a dinner party tomorrow night, where tensions are expected to flare between Keller and Michael.

Married At First Sight airs tomorrow at 8.40pm on Channel 9.
