We have shocking news to report from the world of Married at First Sight:
One of the couples featured on this Lifetime reality series has called it quits.
Why is this so surprising, considering the finale of each Married at First Sight season ends with twosomes deciding to give their love an extended shot ... or to go their separate ways?
Because this break-up has taken place during the season.
Indeed, with new Season 7 installments airing every Tuesday night, Mia Bally and Tristan Thompson* have announced that they can't pretend any longer.
They can't spend another moment as husband and wife.
They are getting a divorce.
(*No, not that Tristan Thompson; not the basketball player who has scarcely met an Instagram model he didn't want to bend over and simply pound. We're talking about this other one.)
According to People Magazine, Bally filed for this legal split in Dallas County, Texas, on September 4.
It shouldn't come as a shock to anyone who's been watching Married at First Sight that this relationship has come to a conclusion.
It's only unexpected that Bally is the one who has filed the paperwork.
Over the course of the past few weeks, Thompson has been struggling with a few issues from Mia's past, specificially that she was arrested years ago on a charge of stalking.
This information came to light after Mia was detained and questioned at the airport while the newlyweds were set to embark on their honeymoon.
Later on, Tristan learned that Bally was still active on a dating app, even while the two were married.
That was yet another major bump in the romantic road, but Thompson (on air, at least) had been willing to try and overlook the obstacles and remained committing to his union.
That said, there were very clear signs of tension.
All of this is piling up, and now I’m sitting here not knowing who I just married," Thompson said at one point.
He added during another scene:
“This entire marriage I feel like I’ve been completely honest with Mia, and I’ve told her to just give me the truth, and it seems like she’s gone out of her way to hide things from me.
"I honestly don’t know what to feel or what to believe right now. I thought we were done with all the secrets and lies.”
Like we said: it's no surprise these two didn't work out.
We're just taken aback that Mia is the one to have pulled the plug.
But we guess Tristan just didn't live up to the expectations she had in mind for a husband.
"I feel like I lead a simple life," she said in the past, explaining:
"I do go to church every Sunday.
"I am part of a Bible study group on Tuesdays. So that’s what I want is a man to lead me closer to Christ, or even a goal, us have a goal together, and he leads me towards those same motivational values that we have."
Oh well. Better luck next time, guys!
Married at First Sight airs on Tuesdays at 9/8c on Lifetime.
