From the beginning of the episode, audiences knew they were in for a disaster. The lead-up to the wedding truly felt like a slow-burning nightmare we couldn't look away from. 

Melissa was looking for Thor at the altar; a big, rugged man who could live up to every fantasy. 

Enter Josh.  A quiet father who loves Disney.

Whilst it looked like we would be watching the worst MAFS wedding of the year, we were pleasantly surprised when Melissa jumped in.

"The experts have hit the jackpot!" she excitedly exclaimed, much to her friend's disbelief.

Whilst the wedding may have gone smoothly, the night of their wedding was anything but. 

The day after Melissa and Josh’s wedding a MAFS producer asked Josh whether he and Melissa “consummated” their marriage and Josh replied, “No, last night we just had a really lovely kiss and cuddle and went to bed.”

When pushed further by the producer Josh said: “Ah no, no intimacy progressed. We’re older, we don’t have to jump into any of that stuff. We’ve got a lot of time to get to know each other so there’s no need to rush that aspect.”

“The way that a relationship normally progresses is that, you know, either you get involved in that kinda stuff straight up or you don’t. I’m open to taking the time to see when we’re both comfortable around that stuff,” Josh added.

However, Melissa told MAFS producers a completely different story.

“Was sex last night with Josh good? Yes. Last night went off with a bang! I was looking for a big, burly man to throw me around on the first night and let me tell you, Josh has it covered. Thor does have a big hammer and Thor does not disappoint. I’m on the Josh train now. Boop boop; I’m not getting off,” Melissa shared.

So which one of them was telling the truth?

Well, it turns out that Melissa was, but Josh stood by his decision to keep his sex life away from the prying eyes of the Australian public. 

"I’ve got some integrity where I’d keep some things for us,” Josh explained.

“I would never talk about that stuff in real life. I’ve got Christian conservative parents, so I didn’t feel the need to shout it from the rooftops. In my heart, I feel something for Mel but I don’t really wanna share everything with everyone. I want to keep some things for us.”

Whilst it sounds pretty reasonable, Mel was not impressed and chaos ensued. Will they be able to overcome this hurdle? Only time will tell...

Married At First Sight Australia airs Monday to Wednesday, 7:30pm, and Sunday, 7pm, on Nine Network and 9Now.
