Hard work does not save reality show marriage from divorce

On Behalf of | Apr 3, 2019 | Divorce

Many Ohio marriages are hard enough under normal circumstances. When a marriage is under a public microscope, even the strongest marital bonds can crumble, leading to divorce. Former participants of the reality show “Married at First Sight,” Jason Carrion and Cortney Hendrix have chosen to divorce.

The series was introduced in 2014 on the premise that couples are matched according to scientific methods set forth by relationship experts. The couples are not to have any contact with each other until their wedding day and then everything they go through during the first few weeks of the marriage is documented. The couples have to decide whether to continue with the relationship.

The marriage between Carrion and Hendrix lasted five years, where he says they were truly in love during that time. They both took steps to make it work and even considered getting a divorce and beginning again by dating and following a traditional path to marriage. In the end, however, they decided to separate and then, finally, to divorce. He states it was somewhat difficult to make their decisions, as their fans were continually asking for updates on the relationship. They both say they are determined to remain friends no matter where their paths take them.

No matter what obstacles finally end a marriage, trying to move on can be emotionally exhausting. However,  there are decisions that cannot always wait, especially if children are involved. Having the support of an experienced Ohio divorce attorney who will see that the legal process goes as smoothly as possible will allow for greater peace of mind.
