John And Melissa From MAFS Have SPLIT

Out of all of the couples on Married At First Sight we had really high hopes for John and Melissa. Not only because they were simply adorable together but because we knew that the experts weren’t trolling John this time around (like when they paired him with Deb…) and he and Melissa were truly the perfect match!

But sadly, it has just been announced that our favourite MAFS couple have decided to call it quits and all of our hopes for a happily ever after on this season have been shot.

John and Melissa both released statements via their Instagram accounts confirming that they had broken up.

“It has been a very difficult decision and it makes us both very sad to say we have decided to no longer continue as a couple,” wrote John on Instagram.

I had a fantastic time with Melissa on married at first sight . We really loved spending time together and getting to know each other .and had an instant connection . We lived together so easily and it reminded us both how wonderful it is to be with a partner. We thought there would be some issues when we got into the real world outside but decided to give it a go and see it there was true feelings between us. It has been a very difficult decision and it makes us both very sad to say we have decided to no longer continue as a couple . We still have the utmost respect for each other but have found significant differences in our lives and expectations in relationships. We have spoken at length about how to make it work and have been spending time with each other to let our relationship unfold but both agree it doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere . We still care deeply for each other as friends and will never forget the incredible times we have had together. @melissa_mafs #mafs #marriedatfirstsight

“I am very disappointed that it hasn’t worked as I went into the experiment looking for true love,” added Melissa to her own Instagram post.

As you can all see, John @john_robertson_1962 and I have had an amazing experience together over the past six months . You have followed our journey and saw our caring for each other grow over the experiment. We genuinely adored spending time together and getting to know each other . We hit it off straight away and felt an immediate connection and mutual respect for each other . We lived together so easily and it reminded us both how wonderful it is to be married and have a supportive , loving partner which is something neither of us have had for a long time .We did think there would be some obstacles outside in the real world but thought we had a strong enough bond to overcome them . We know there’s been a lot of speculation about whether we are together any more and wanted to be fully transparent and let you know where our relationship is at as you have all been so encouraging and supportive of the two of us . It has been a very difficult decision and it makes us both very sad to say we have decided to no longer continue as a couple . We still have the utmost respect for each other but have found significant differences in our lives and expectations in relationships. We have spoken at length about how to make it work and have been spending time with each other to let our relationship unfold but both agree it doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere . We still care deeply for each other as friends and will never forget the incredible times we have had together. I could not have gone through this process with anybody else as John is a wonderful and kind man . I am very disappointed that it hasn’t worked as I went into the experiment looking for true love . I had been through hell with my last marriage as you know and thought I wasn’t meant to have a relationship ever again. Being part of this experiment was the best thing I have ever done as it reminded me that perhaps there is a love out there for me and I thank Married at First Sight for opening my world again to love. #mafs #marriedatfirstsight #marriedau
