Meka Jones and Michael Watson, stars of the hit reality series Married at First Sight, had a rocky start to their marriage during an earlier episode of the show. The reality stars weren’t on the same page when they discussed having children, and it was clear they were both a bit uncomfortable and awkward following the wedding, so fans might be wondering what’s going on with Meka and Michael today, and if they are still together.
Although it would normally be too soon to tell, some spoilers have popped up online regarding Meka and Michael’s relationship status today, and what they inevitably chose to do on Decision Day.
Warning: some MAJOR Married at First Sight relationship spoilers on Meka and Michael ahead! Turn back now if you don’t want anything ruined for you before Decision Day! Read on for our MAFS spoilers on the reality couple:
The Reality Couple is No Longer Together & Michael Filed for an Annulment
According to Instagrammer MAFSFan, Meka and Michael separated shortly after Lifetime finished filming Season 10, and Michael reportedly filed for an annulment of their short-lived marriage.
On January 21, MAFSFan posted that the reality couple decided to go their separate ways at the end of the marriage experiment. The Instagrammer didn’t have many details on the split, although the person noted that they “hoped to have the receipts to share soon.”
MAFSFan also added that Michael and Meka’s marriage was “not consummated,” so we have a feeling the two might end up dealing with more intimacy issues throughout upcoming episodes of Season 10 (do we have another Keith and Iris situation on our hands?). Meka already accused Michael of threatening to end their marriage if she didn’t have sex with him during the honeymoon, so those issues will likely play out over the rest of the reason.
Update: MAFSFan also added to his Instagram stories that Michael reportedly tried to quit the show after the honeymoon, but the network threatened to sue. The screenshot above reads, “Michael tried to quit the show after the honeymoon and the show threatened to sue him and his family.”
The Instagrammer also shared a series of other spoilers in their stories, including a few updates on other couples who decided to split right after filming ended, but we won’t share those spoilers in this post.

Meka Didn’t Find Michael ‘Immediately Attractive’ When They First Met
Viewers watched as Michael and Meka walked down the aisle in the episode titled “I Married a Stranger,” which aired on January 15, 2020. The two already had a few awkward exchanges, and weren’t on the same page when they discussed having children, so it was obvious from the start that they were going to have a rocky road ahead of them.
In an interview with SoapDirt published in January, Meka also admitted that she didn’t find her husband “immediately attractive.” While she said she went into the experiment of marrying a total stranger with an “open mind,” she still wasn’t totally thrilled with who the experts set her up with, so it’s not altogether surprising that the two called it quits in the end.
It’s worth noting that everything stated above is mainly speculation at this time, and nothing has been publicly verified by the reality stars just yet (and probably won’t be until after the Decision Day episode airs). Fans likely won’t know for sure what happens with the couples until the end of the season, as contractual obligations to Lifetime stops them from sharing much in terms of their relationship while the season is airing.
Fans will just have to keep tuning in Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. EST/7 p.m. CST on Lifetime to catch Meka and Michael on Married at First Sight and see how everything plays out for the reality couple.
