MAFS Season 9 in Charlotte brought a lot of firsts to the show. It was the first time the show came to North Carolina, it was the first time couples lived in neutral apartments provided by the show, and it was the first appearance of our beloved relationship expert, Dr. Viviana Coles.

Five couples went into the Married At First Sight Charlotte experience…let’s see how many couples came out of it.

Matt Gwynne and Amber Bowles: Divorced

Unfortunately, this divorce was no surprise to anyone. After weeks of living a double life, Matt Gwynne finally showed his true colors when it finally came out that he did seem to have a lady or perhaps multiple ladies, on the side.

Matt spent weeks leaving Amber home alone, sometimes for days at a time, while still claiming to Amber and the experts that he wanted to work on his marriage and have it be successful.

Matt had gone into the marriage claiming he wanted to put down roots in Charlotte, end his career as a professional basketball player, get married, start a business and begin his life. Slowly but surely it became apparent that none of that was true.

Matt admitted that he had had offers to start a new contract for professional basketball abroad and was considering taking it, which would mean leaving Amber behind for 9 months at a time.
