WARNING: The below contains spoilers from Sunday night’s episode of Married At First Sight. If you haven’t watched it, you have been warned.
If you’ve been up to date with Married At First Sight, you’ll know Aleks and Ivan have been one of the more colourful couples. They both come from families with similar values which have altered their experience in the show in comparison to the other participants.
One of the subjects that continues to arise with these two is their refusal to discuss their sex life with the relationships experts and the other couples, who are becoming increasingly curious.
Aleks and Ivan seemed prepared to face intimacy questions at the commitment ceremony and rightly so, as the experts John Aiken, Mel Schilling and Trisha Stratford got right to it.
Despite being told that it was the expert’s business to know the details of their intimacy, Ivan revealed to share details of how the pair were going behind the scenes. He even threw out a comment that the show wasn’t an ‘adult film’. Yikes.
Schilling gave him a grilling, which lead Aleks to threaten she’d rather leave the experiment to pursue Ivan on the outside. Ouch.
It was a frustrating moment for the pair, but they will be pleased to know that Australia has praised them for their ability to stand up to the experts in the intense environment.
Respect to Ivan & Aleks on #MAFS tonight. Stand by each other like you did against the experts & the couch. Loved the way you supported each other against such pressure to comply. You showed great dignity.

Ivan telling the experts that his sex life is no ones business but their own and shutting them down is exactly what I needed to see. pic.twitter.com/A8MnWIYeVb

Since everyone else is on a rocky road, Aleks and Ivan could be the golden couple we’ve been missing all along. Good on them for being true to themselves and their relationship!
