WASHINGTON, DC: Davina Kullar and Sean Varricchio decided to end their six-week marriage at the end of the reality television show “Married at First Sight,” but they both said on the series finale that they don’t regret going through the social experiment.
The reality TV series, which airs on FYI Network, documents the lives of three couples who meet on their wedding day. After six weeks of marriage, they must decide whether to stay together or get a divorce.
“At decision day, we had a friendship going into that and he really blindsided me with some really negative comments,” Kullar, an Indian American, told the New York Post. “It makes it difficult to have a friendship because a friendship is based on trust, based on components of character, and those were unfortunately laid to the side.”
Reportedly, Kullar and Varricchio never had sex in the time they stayed married. Differences cropped up when Kullar wanted her new husband to move to Manhattan from New Jersey, which he found difficult. That proved to the deal breaker. Allegations against Kullar include that she only visited new husband’s place in New Jersey 3-4 times, and never felt comfortable there.
According to Daily Mail Online, Varricchio quickly grew irritated when he learned that Kullar, 34, needs a “really strong man” by her side.
“I am not a weak person,” he told the show’s cameras before going on to to say that he judged Kullar for the way she spoke to people, noting that she can be “rude” and “mean.” And while Kullar said she was frustrated that he never tried to help or support her, he called her “egocentric.”
“I was constantly walking on eggshells, where it definitely became difficult to see how we could grow a relationship,” Varricchio told the New York post during a one-on-one interview before informing the newspaper that the two have not spoken since the end of the show.
On a more positive note, both Kullar, a biopharmaceutical sales rep, and Varricchio, an ER nurse from New Jersey, said they’re hoping to marry again in the future.
“I think I’ll give it the regular vetting process this time around, though,” Pullar said, according to Hollywood Life.
