Clara asked others how their family would respond to them marrying a stranger on television, and MAFS stars chimed in with answers from their personal experience.
Married at First Sight Season 13 star Rachel Gordillo commented, “my mom thought I was joking.”
Clara replied, “literally same.”
Married at First Sight Season 4 star Sonia Granados provided a detailed and humorous story of her dad’s reaction to her joining the show.
Sonia wrote, “sooo I told my dad before the cameras (obviously lol) and when it came time to record it I think he thought he was debuting as an actor because he made a face like OMG so the producer was like ‘ok Armando, we know you know. You can relax.’ He was excited for me ONLY after he said was it a little desperate of me.”
Married at First Sight Season 10 star Meka Jones commented, “Lmaooo I was so nervous and then literally my entire family was so happy and supportive.”
Clara replied to Meka as she further elaborated on her family taking a minute to warm up to the idea of their daughter being on MAFS.
Clara wrote, “awww that’s so sweet! My family definitely needed time to adjust to the news but then they were amazing!”
It seems the ladies’ families were overall supportive of their daughters’ joining Married at First Sight.
