Keith and Iris met and were married on Season 9 of Married at First Sight. The couple made show history as Iris was the first virgin to get married on the Lifetime series.

Keith struggled through the season trying to get Iris to open up and be a little more comfortable and Iris, understandably so, was not sure if she was ready to do anything of a sexual nature, especially on camera.

The hurt on Iris’ face when Keith said that he wanted a divorce is one you can’t forget and it was heartbreaking to see. Keith decided that he and Iris were in two different places mentally, and considering Keith was experienced in things of a sexual manner and Iris is, well, a virgin, you can kind of understand where he was coming from.

After viewers hoped that the couple would change their minds and get back together, we were all disappointed when they didn’t. So what have these two been up to since their split?

Keith has been doing quite a bit of traveling since the show aired. According to his Instagram, he most recently was in California.

He has also been pretty active with his fans, doing a regular Q & A with them, discussing all kinds of life topics.

Iris seems to have found her niche with modeling. She has created one heck of a portfolio on Instagram.

She even included her friend and former cast member, Amber, in on the fun.

Iris also does a pretty regular Q & A with her fans, where she is asked a lot about her ex-husband and her virginity. She has said on these, that she and Keith do not talk at all.

  1. I wanted these two together. I feel that Keith thought that if Iris loved him, she would have given herself to him. I think he was hurt.

    Iris is beautiful, kind, and moral.

    Give it another try!!!

  2. She didn’t fulfill her marital duties as a wife, or even make a promising effort to get there. I mean they were married, so what was she waiting for? I don’t blame him.

  3. She was just immature and never willing to have deep meaningful discussions. She kept talking about her virginity and she is the one that made it a Barrier in their relationship. She was quite annoying about her precious virginity.

  4. I believe he was just as disappointed. It wasn’t so much as the virginity as it was the fact that she didn’t express herself intimately to him. He respected her virginity, but was cautious of her lack of physical attraction, maturity, and progression.

  5. I believe Keith lost interest once he saw that she was not open enough to talk about sex on a intimate level or mature enough to even try. The only way they were going to have sex is if she was the assertive one and gave herself to him. Was not going to be the initiator. He did not want that responsibility it was too much and it scared him. I really liked them together. I can tell Iris cared about him and I believe she wanted him to makes a move the way she looked at him. They were both too scared to make a move.

  6. All Keith wanted was sex. Thank God Iris had enough common sense and dignity to withhold sex from a complete stranger on a reality TV show for 8 weeks until she knew his true motives. I was very proud of her for maintaining her self respect.
