WARNING: The below contains spoilers about Sunday night’s episode of Married At First Sight. If you don’t want to know what happens, do not scroll down.
Phew, the past week of Married At First Sight has been quite a doozy and it all came to a head at Sunday night’s dramatic commitment ceremony.
Well… almost. We were missing a very controversial couple who caused quite a stir in the past week, Ivan and Aleks.
The pair, who had been a golden couple throughout the whole experiment, were shaken by claims that Aleks had been unfaithful after she suddenly became unattracted to her TV hubby. Everyone, including the participants, expected a full showdown with all truths laid out.
However, we weren’t blessed with those scenes. Instead of putting on a brave face, the pair did a runner and escaped the commitment ceremony. It wasn’t clear if they left together or separately, but their peers were not impressed.
Some MAFS viewers thought it was pretty poor form for them to leave the show like that.

However, some viewers actually backed Ivan and Aleks for walking away.
Natasha and Mikey didn't attend a dinner party…Poppy and Luke left mid-week and nothing was said. Yet Aleks and Ivan get raked over the coals?! #MAFS

Aleks: tries to defend herself and offer her own explanation
The group: doesn't believe her and attacks her
Aleks: decides not to come to the commitment ceremony
The group: how dare she not want to be attacked all over again while we ignore what's she's saying #MAFS #MAFSAU

Regardless it’s really sad to lose another couple, especially now Cathy and Josh have called it quits too. Hopefully love will stay in the air for the next couple of weeks!
