WARNING: If you haven’t seen Sunday’s episode of Married At First Sight, stop reading now to avoid major spoilers!
The first commitment ceremony was always going to be fiery. It is the first time the couples get the opportunity to be honest with themselves, each other and the experts since they walked down the aisle.
It’s heartwarming when participants are having a wonderful time, but heart-wrenching when it’s the total opposite for the others.
Luckily, we’ll get to see all the couples continue the time in the experiment, although there were some rough moments that have a lot of fans talking.
First off, many viewers have opinions about Poppy’s decision to stay with Luke despite her deep need to see her children. Her motherly instincts have held her back from plunging headfirst into the experiment and at times, it has been hard to watch.

Luke doesn't have a chance at making this experiment work.
Let's just match him with Elizabeth and send Poppy back home

Another hot topic was the rocky relationship between Hayley and David, who have had many conflicts during the series. The couples’ couch session was very firey with John Aiken required to step in…
You just know David will say leave Hayley will say stay and that’ll be his lot for the week #MAFS
