The relationship between Amelia Fatsi and Bennett Kirschner has fans believing in the Married at First Sight experiment again.

The bohemian bride and her thespian husband are both unapologetically themselves on the new season based in New Orleans.

From his nightgown to her funky style, they’ve been able to appreciate the quirks in each other and understand why they were matched.

The couple is a fan favorite

Amelia and Bennett also happened to be the first couple in Married at First Sight history to meet before the wedding – so it’s safe to say the experts got it right when it came to their social behaviors.

Due to their instant chemistry, the two were more than willing to give the marriage a shot when they met at the altar.

The couple has been relatively on the same page for most issues. From agreeing on considering adoption to household chores, the chemistry between this new connection has produced smooth sailing.

Where other brides complained about the size of their spouse’s home, Amelia appreciated the creativity and uniqueness of Bennett’s self-built home.

Amelia also appreciated that Bennett would feel more than secure about her being the breadwinner in the family. As a child, Amelia was cared for by her father while her mother worked as a doctor.

They had one small problem on the horizon

According to the online medical network Doximity, we see that Dr. Amelia has secured a residency in a city that isn’t in Lousiana.

Although she was studying at the University of Queensland Medical School in New Orleans, Amelia has secured a residency near Richmond, Virginia.

Amelia has confessed to living a more nomadic lifestyle, while Bennett is very comfortable with his roots in New Orleans.  This has been the couple’s biggest hurdle as Bennett is heavily invested in the city with his tiny house and theater company.

We have seen Bennett rethink previous decisions in his past, but will he be convinced to leave? He has confessed to seriously seeing a future with Amelia, but only time will tell if he makes the move.

Many viewers agree this is one couple they hope to see work it out and decide to stay married at the end of the experiment.

Will the couple survive the move, or will they divorce on decision day?

Married at First Sight airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Lifetime.

I know a married couple who got through the same .. by keeping face time touch twice a day, visiting by meeting midway between both places as often as possible on time off of work, and doing romantic things throough tthe mail or on the phone even in the dark with a candle or meals and catch up talk on the phone. They are now still VERY happily married, living together with a rescued dog and no one could break their bond. Each partner has a strong and iindependent loyalty to their work and this only has strengthened their bond. I would feeel sad to see Bennett leave the band, as he writes and is lead singer, but he could write from anywhere and perhaps raise funds for the band to travel and meet him halfway if he goes to Virginia. Those twwo are such a source of humor , inspiration and joy for me, sitting up here in a 3 room apartment in quarantine, with a torn ACL and a husband with bad back pain every day. I SOOO look foward to watching those two and Bennetts outfits. The cap and gown on Unfiltered was the best and very flattering. Amelias very genuine laughing fit when Bennett asked to borrrow ssocks–that was so real and so funny I watched it 4 times in a row. Thanks you adorable Angels for lighting up my room and giving mee lots upon which to reflect. Bennett–I watched TV Pole Shine on You Tube and it was AMAZINC! Congrats! and good luck with the album. I am in love with you both—I dont just love you—I fell easily in love from day one. Thank you. You are among thee very rare angels disguised as peoplee wwalking tthe earth to bring us help and happiness. Gratefully Yours, Maxine Klein . I would be in Heaven to receive an email from you! WOW!
