Who doesn't love a happily ever after love story? And while Married At First Sight doesn't have a particularly good hit rate at pairing up compatible partners, we love that some couples have actually found true love on the show – or are giving it their best shot anyway.

Here are the five couples who are still happily together in 2021.

Cam and Jules

It was obvious that Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant were fairly smitten from the beginning. Both Jules and Cam went into their 2018 Married At First Sight experiment serious about trying to find true love and fans were just as thrilled as they were when they found it.

They have had each other's back since day one and shared similar dreams and values so it was unsurprising when they decided to tie the knot for real in 2019. The wedding was such a big deal that it was covered by A Current Affair.

"It was a fantastic day. Just the best!" Jules told Who magazine. "Obviously, we got married on TV and we both don’t really remember that day because that was a whirlwind. [This time] everything was more than we could have imagined. Like a fairytale."

Since then the couple have welcomed their son, Oliver Chase, in September last year. "He really is gorgeous, isn’t he?! We couldn’t be happier," Cam gushed to Who.

And when asked if they were open to having more children, Jules responded: "Absolutely – give us 18 months!" 

Martha and Michael

She was a headstrong princess and he was her accommodating prince and despite their sometime fiery arguments on the show, MAFS 2018 contestants Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli are still going strong. 

Michael gave up his job as a teacher and he and Martha moved in with each other in Bondi, Sydney and have become Instagram influencers. And while they still argue, they are 100 per cent there for each other.

"She brings something out in me and I can calm her down," Michael revealed at the MAFS Grand Reunion this year. "I'm an introvert, I don't say a lot. Two years ago I probably didn't have the confidence – Martha's been able to pull that out of me and make me feel comfortable to speak my truth, and I feel like for me that is a huge personal growth," he added.

Martha meanwhile said she's almost forgotten that they met on a reality show. "It's not that we look back and want to forget it. It was an amazing time in our lives but it doesn’t feel like that’s how we met," she revealed at the reunion. "I sort of forget we met on a reality TV show."

Erin and Bryce

Erin Bateman and Bryce Mohr met on the second season of Married At First Sight and have been together over five years now. Despite meeting on a reality TV show, the couple are now pretty private these days.

"I'm sure it infuriates a lot of people that they're not kept in the loop because the nature of reality TV is you then go on to flaunt your whole life on social media," Erin told Bella Frizza’s podcast The D&M last year.

"I don't think it's normal. I know personally people who portray their relationship on social media as this fairy tale, who are some of the most miserable people I've ever met, in terms of relationships. 

"The Bryce I got the day that I met him is the Bryce I have today. He hasn’t changed at all. He is exactly who he is, and I’d like to think he feels the same about me," she added. 

Despite not updating the public on what they're up to now, their fans are just happy that their love is still strong.

Melissa and Bryce

They may have met less than a year ago but Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson are taking their commitment serious. Not only are the couple engaged to be married (properly now!), they are also expecting twins in about three months time.

"It's all happened very fast," Bryce told New Idea.

"It's been a whirlwind, but we're so incredibly happy," Melissa added.

While their relationship on the show was controversial, Melissa says Bryce is the one for her.

"My heart is full. I love this man so much and we truly make each other happy every single day," she said in an Instagram post. "While it might be hard for some to believe, it is my decision, my life and my choice. And I choose him. He is my partner, my lover and the man that I have fallen head over heels for. Our love story is what I asked for; an all consuming and unconditional love. And I have found that with Bryce ❤️💋🥰."

Johnny and Kerry

Six months after their TV wedding and things are still going strong for Johnny and Kerry. But they are not rushing to tie the knot legally any time soon since both have experienced that before.

"I think the unique thing for us after both being in serious relationships in the past neither of us are in any hurry to marry again," Kerry explained to Who magazine. "We’ve both done it and now we’re here because it’s a choice."

But they have moved in together to a little townhouse in Brisbane - Awww.
