Brett Layton and Rachel Gordillo divorced their MAFS spouses
Rachel was matched with Jose during the Houston season, and Brett was matched with Ryan.
Rachel and Jose hit it off immediately on their wedding day and appeared to be in an elated honeymoon phase at the start of their marriage.
However, their relationship took a nosedive after Jose went off on Rachel for calling her by another man’s name.
Jose and Rachel agreed to stay married after Decision Day and tried to make their marriage work away from cameras, but ultimately chose to divorce.
Brett and Ryan had a rocky relationship from the start with little in common and no spark.
Brett and Ryan divorced on Decision Day.
