What did Married At First Sight Australia fans say?

And viewers were quick to call out Matt for completely “discarding” Lauren.

Taking to Twitter, one said: “Matt is making no sense, you slept with Loz and are now not a virgin then you’ve discarded her.”

How could Matthew announce to the whole world he is not attracted her without raising it with her first – he truly is a selfish, egocentric big baby

Another added: “Genuinely upset about Lauren and Matt here. I get why she picked leave she was hurting. But I feel like Matt gave up when there was so much more potential to grow.”

A third wrote: “Matt went from virgin to [bleep] boy real quick.”

A fifth commented: “I feel devastated for Lauren – how could Matthew announce to the whole world he is not attracted her without raising it with her first #MAFSAU – he truly is a selfish, egocentric big baby.”

“When it comes to the bedroom, she is really adventurous and open to anything, even threesomes and intimacy with the same sex.
