Married at First Sight season 12 airs Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET.
It's on Lifetime, but you don't need cable to watch.

Hi, nice to meet you — "I do." It's time to watch Married at First Sight season 12 online. The Lifetime reality show is back to match up 10 singles and see them go from strangers into spouses. The episodes follow the cast as they learn they're engaged, pick out wedding dresses and tuxes, celebrate their bachelor and bachelorette parties, meet at the altar and then get married. 

Later weeks will see the couples move in together, hang out with their friends and families and discuss important issues like finances and kids. Eventually, they'll reach Decision Day, when they must choose to stay married or get divorced.

Married at First Sight season 12 returned to Atlanta (the location of season 3), but while it's familiar ground, there are several firsts for the show — like its first divorced cast member.

Married at First Sight is a hugely popular show for Lifetime and has spawned several spinoffs: Married at First Sight: The First Year, Married Life, Married at First Sight: Second Chances, Jamie and Doug Plus One, Married at First Sight: Honeymoon Island, Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After, Married at First Sight: Couples' Cam and Married at First Sight: Australia.

She loves that the MAFS experts match candidates with a partner who is not only compatible but also someone who shares the same core values. Briana is devoted to the experiment and is ready to give it her all.

Vincent (27) was ready for marriage in a past relationship, but his partner was not. Despite his heartbreak, he hasn't let go of the dream of happily ever after. Vincent doesn't hold back when it comes to his feelings and he'd love the help of the MAFS experts to help match him with his dream girl. He embraces his Dominican culture, loves music, and is ready to find his salsa partner for life.

Clara's (27) last relationship didn't go as planned and she was left reimagining a new future. She wants to start the next chapter of her life and has no interest in dating around. Clara wants to get Married At First Sight because she believes in fate and that everything happens for a reason. She is all in and ready to give the process everything she's got.

Ryan (29) is ready for marriage and is absolutely husband material! His parents have been married for over three decades, and Ryan feels that his father laid out the blueprint for what a supportive husband and dad should be. Ryan is hopeful the experts can find him a wife he can build a family with, and finally make his parent's dreams of being grandparents come true.

Haley (28) is a homeowner, has a dog she loves, and is supported by a huge network of close friends. She is more than ready for the experts' help to find a loyal and trustworthy partner. Haley admittedly has trust issues and would benefit from the help provided in the Married At First Sight process. She thinks that having professional guidance in those early crucial weeks of marriage will enable her to break down her walls in order to find happiness and longevity in her marriage.

Jacob (38) is tired of dating. He wants children and knows that he's not getting any younger. Jacob already believes that arranged marriages are typically more successful than traditional ones. Therefore, the opportunity to get Married At First Sight is a win-win in his eyes. He is looking for a deep and meaningful connection and loves the idea of working with experts who have the same goal in mind. Hopefully, they can help him find the happy ending he's been searching for.

She's stable in her career and is ready to start the next chapter in her life and be a wife. She wants to be Married At First Sight because she truly believes in the process and trusts in the experts to find her the right man.

Chris (27) has dreamed about getting married from a young age. Raised by Pastors, his faith runs deep, and he firmly believes in the power of prayer. He knows God will bring him his wife and he's confident Married At First Sight is a sign of answered prayers. Alongside his wife, he wants to be co-CEOs, leaving behind a legacy for the many children he hopes to have!

Admitting that she has a history of self-sabotaging relationships, Virginia is ready to overcome her fears and commit to love.

Erik (34) has been ready for marriage for a long time now and because he's been married before he doesn't want to waste any time finding his perfection match. Erik has accomplished everything in his life and is ready to start the next chapter with a family.
