in Shows by

Married At First Sight’s Sonia Granados and Nick Pendergrast file for divorceSad news in the divorce world, one of the Married at First couples from last season has called it quits. Sonia Granados and Nick Pendergrast are filing for divorce. The pair announced the news in a joint statement via Twitter on Wednesday, March 22. This couple had a rough time during during the first few weeks of their marriage experiment. Although, it appeared that they would be getting divorced at the end of the season, they decided to stay together and work it out.

The statement that the ex-couple posted on Twitter was a very sweet statement. The statement read, “We are sad to share that after almost a year of marriage we have decided to separate and file for divorce,” the statement read. “Thank you in advance for your love and support through this difficult time! We look forward to growing and continuing to learn about ourselves from what we still consider to be a meaningful experience with MAFS”. Granados prefaced the posted statement with her own statement. “Don’t be discouraged. This is still a love story”.

Granados and Pendergrast met on season 4 of the A&E series. They struggled a lot early on in their relationship. The first issue that arose is that Granados was scared of dogs and Pendergrast owned a dog. She struggled with the acceptance of his dog. The second issue that arose was when Pendergrast stated that he wasn’t physically attracted to Granados. After one particular explosive fight, Granados moved out, unable to deal with the tension anymore. Even after all those issues, at the end of the season, they decided to stay together much to the surprise of fans.

But it looks like that happy ending that we all hoped for was not meant to be. Although, no further details have emerged at the time, it does appear that the split was amicable. We wish these two the best even if that means they can’t be together.




Another Married at First Sight Divorce Disaster?

in Shows by

mafs_s4_nicksoniaShockingly enough, (sarcasm, sarcasm, sarcasm) another Married at First Sight couple’s relationship has hit the skids. Soon after the Derek/Heather fiasco, another couple seems to have found themselves heading towards divorce. Pastor Calvin has got his work cut out for him.

This time Nick Pendergrast, 32, claims he and his wife Sonia Granados, 33, never consummated their marriage, and he is ready to walk away from it. Sonia, however, denies that and says that they consummated their marriage more than once. The issue started when Sonia asked Nick to open up to her about his feelings about her. Anyone following the series knows that Nick has always been cold towards Sonia. It was sad to watch her try to drag anything out of him. Finally, Nick blew up at her and told her he wasn’t attracted to her. Viewers everywhere just cringed when he yelled that at her. Upon hearing this, Sonia packed her stuff and walked out.

In comes Pastor Calvin to try and fix this mess but it seems that Nick is not really feeling it at all. Nick claims that they never consummated the marriage and that it isn’t a traditional marriage. Pastor Calvin asks Nick about the fight and how he felt about it.  “The attraction has dwindled from the beginning, and it’s not something that she’s done. I don’t think she’s ugly by any means,’ Nick explains. ‘We’re married, but do I feel like I’m a husband? I want to feel that way with someone.”  Pastor Calvin tries to get Nick to see that this in indeed a marriage but Nick confirms that he thinks he should be able to just leave the marriage without consequences because it isn’t a “real” marriage because it was never consummated. He said, “I get at least one “Get Out of Jail Free” card. How am I supposed to support her emotionally if I don’t even know how to do that yet?”

Well Sonia has a different story. When Pastor Calvin questions her about their marriage, she claims that the couple have been intimate and when the Pastor tells her that Nick said they have only kissed, Sonia said, “We had sex — not just once,’ she reveals. ‘Like we’ve had sex.” So who is right? We have a feeling that Sonia is right and that Nick is trying to find anyway to get out of this marriage.

Poor Sonia. You could tell that she really wanted this marriage to work. You can see it in her sad, desperate face. Nick on the other hand, looks like he would rather put a campfire out with his face than spend another moment married to Sonia. Well, Tom and Lillian it’s up to you now.

Divorced Already? Married at First Sight Sees its Quickest Divorce Yet

in Shows by

mafs_s4_heatherderek1The FYI Channel’s “Married and First Sight” has already seen its first casualty of its “Social Experiment”. Heather Sediel and Derek Schwartz called it quits after a very tumultuous honeymoon. The couple had only been married for two weeks before Heather decided that she just couldn’t be married to Derek anymore. This split is the quickest in the show’s history.

Fans following their story on the show, recognized that Heather was not overwhelmed with attraction when she first saw Derek at the alter. She recognized that she would have to get to know him first and hoped the honeymoon would bring them closer together. Derek was gung-ho from the beginning and was excited to be matched with Heather. The disastrous honeymoon however proved that this couple was not a good match. Heather was upset over Derek’s “occasional” smoking every day of their vacation. During the interview process, Heather told the matchmakers that she didn’t want a smoker, but occasionally smoking was ok. When Heather confronted Derek about his smoking on the honeymoon, he thought it would be a good idea to call her an alcoholic. After that it was a downward spiral of awkward, cringe-worthy fights and a whole lot of side eyes from Heather.

They decided to call in the big guns, Pastor Calvin Roberson, to try and help them work it out. Derek was on board but Heather had had enough. “I am really sorry about how things have gone,’ she told him. ‘I don’t think you are a bad person at all, and I am sorry that I can’t move forward with you. I cannot be married to you and I hope that you understand that.” Derek was visibly crushed by this statement. Apparently, he wanted to push through the full six weeks before a decision was made. I don’t know if I could have made it through anymore episodes of this couple and frosty awkwardness.

Tune in to next weeks episode at the other remaining couple’s try to navigate being married to someone that they barely know.
