SEASON 12 of Lifetime’s Married at First Sight features five couples who courageously take the plunge into matrimony.
The brides and grooms included on the reality show don’t meet until they are “at the altar.”
Who is Jacob from Married at First Sight?
Jacob is paired up with a woman named Haley on season 12 of the Lifetime reality show Married at First Sight – and their union has been shaky so far.
He is 38 and “tired of dating,” according to the show’s website.
Jacob “wants children and knows that he’s not getting any younger,” the website explains.
“Jacob already believes that arranged marriages are typically more successful than traditional ones. Therefore, the opportunity to get Married At First Sight is a win-win in his eyes.
“He is looking for a deep and meaningful connection and loves the idea of working with experts who have the same goal in mind.”
Haley, who is 10 years younger than Jacob, is a homeowner, has a dog, and “is supported by a huge network of close friends.”
She “admittedly has trust issues and would benefit from the help provided in the Married at First Sight process,” the website reads.
“She thinks that having professional guidance in those early crucial weeks of marriage will enable her to break down her walls in order to find happiness and longevity in her marriage.”
When did Jacob and Haley get married?
All ten singles met their spouse at the altar in the early episodes of season 12, which launched in January of 2021.
The five couples – including Jacob and Haley – spent their first night together on the episode that aired on February 3.
“Before heading on their honeymoons, they’ll have to face their new in-laws,” reads the episode description.
“Will the newlyweds experience complete joy or will they question whether they’ve made a huge mistake?”
Jacob and Haley have had some rough moments after tying the knot, and their future as a married couple appears in doubt.
At one point Haley bought Jacob a set of new clothes to wear in attempt to steam things up, according to Reality tv world.
“If there’s no physical attraction, then honestly I don’t know if we really have kind of a shot,” Jacob would say, according to the outlet.
