Married at First Sight Season 9~Amber’s Exuberant Affection vs. Matt’s Quiet Reserve

Amber is a 27-year-old 8th grade English teacher who considers herself a tomboy. When her mother left her at the age of seven, she developed a fear of rejection. Now she’s ready to put her trust in the experts and is committed to making her marriage work. Amber is honest and open about her instant attraction to Matt. She’s so thrilled with her match, she can’t stop kissing him.

Matt is a 31-year-old professional basketball player. After spending many years traveling for his career, he’s ready to focus on settling down and planting roots in Charlotte. Matt is introspective and low-key, contrasting with Amber’s energetic and upbeat personality.

At first sight, (pun intended) the experts did a great job matching these two. They both embrace an active lifestyle and have a special passion for all things basketball. Their opposing qualities seem to balance each other out.

Having said that, everyone has a different comfort level to the documentation process and outward affection in general. Matt’s body language showed signs that he was apprehensive. Was it awkward kissing the wife he just met? I’ve got your answer.

You seem somewhat reserved in nature. Did Amber’s multiple exuberant requests for you to kiss her make you feel more comfortable or cause you some unease?

I don’t mind physical affection, but I don’t like to do it in public. Also, we had just met. It was a bit much for me at first, but she had just met me and didn’t know I’m not into PDA.

Initially, it may have been a bit awkward. However, Matt became more comfortable as the day progressed. He even initiated some of the kissing by the end of the night.

I think Amber’s open affection could be a good thing. It has the potential to alleviate some insecurity brought on by his parent’s recent divorce. The challenge will be if Matt can completely open up and bring his walls down.

What do you think? Is this a good match?

    It looked like Ambers Bridesmaid was attracted to Matt on Wedding Day. She went up to Matt and hugged him after they waved at each other. At first Matt and Amber seemed very happy to be together. I think Amber scared him off with talk of making a baby named Matt Gwynn The 5th just a few days after they got married. Amber was very clingy. Matt said it when they moved in together. Amber and Matt both look like great people. Matt seamed to have a fear of comittment. I don’t think Matt should feel so guilty for staying out. I have watched every season of Married at first sight. The Experment puts couples through an excellerated relationship. No Dating first. Married, Honeymoon, moving in then deciding if they want to stay Married.
    I have seen parts of the Australian ‘Married at First Sight’ this year. Couples were more attracted to the other person’s husband or wife and hooked up on the show.
    Matt seemed like a great guy. Too much pressure to spend so much time together.
