Are Richard and Andrea still together?

Unfortunately for Richard and Andrea fans, an insider has told Yahoo Lifestyle that the two are no longer together post-experiment.

"They're no longer a couple," they said, going on to to say the pair haven't "really kept in touch" post-filming the show.


It also appears Andrea is not following Richard on Instagram on his non-MAFS account that he uses for his motivational speaking work, another hint that things may not have worked out between the pair... however he is still following Andrea.

While there was no further information as to how long the two last in the experiment, expert Alessandra Rampolla told Yahoo Lifestyle before the season premiered that adding an older couple to the experiment brought a new perspective to the show.

"Watching them go through the experience is really interesting," she said. "Being able to see an older, more mature couple perhaps handle conflict differently in ways that may be helpful to others, and having an older couple learn from younger generations and how they view relationships can be very positive and useful. It's a fresh perspective into relationship dynamics."
