“Married at First Sight” golden couple, Ben and Stephanie, the last remaining pair on the Channel 4 series, have confirmed their divorce on Thursday.

Ben, 36, and Stephanie, 32, met and got together on season 3 of the popular reality tv show. Their initial attraction soon wore off after they realized they just wanted to stay friends.

Fans were counting on the couple to tie the knot and stick with it. However, Ben said that him and Stephanie are still friends, but couldn’t actually give each other what they wanted or needed. He also asserted that since time is an important factor in relationships, they didn’t want to waste each other’s anymore.

“It killed me. After the end of the show we were giving it a go, but as my mum said, you don’t know someone until you’ve lived with them,” said Ben. He also had a lot of positive things to say about his estranged wife, calling her a “lovely girl.”

Ben claimed that he found her beautiful and also phenomenal, but just couldn’t find chemistry between them. Ben and Stephanie found this out the hard way when they both went back to their lives after the show ended.

The newly married couple lived apart and away from each other. Ben admitted that he had tried to keep the marriage intact for Stephanie’s sake, since she really wanted it to work out. However, he felt really odd and unsettled whenever she called him her husband, because he just didn’t know her properly.

“One of the things I didn’t like was when she said, “You’re my husband,” and I was like, “OK, but I’ve got to get to know you first,” he said.

Things weren’t always this bad for the couple. When they first met, they actually felt like they had found a missing part of themselves.

Ben felt the divorce very keenly. Even though he has moved on since him and Stephanie became estranged, he said it broke his heart. “I couldn’t give someone so lovely and so nice what she wanted,” he said, mournfully.
