Married At First Sight UK watchers were left shocked at last night’s episode (Wednesday 29 Sept.) when Marilyse made the decision to remain with her husband Franky at the vow renewal ceremony.

In last night’s episode, three couples had to make the ultimate decision whether they would stay with their partners at the vow renewal ceremony until after the programme had ended. But recently, fans have been concerned about Franky’s behaviour towards Marilyse, with some encouraging her to leave the relationship.

Franky has also had the intention to move back to the UK from Dubai to live with Marilyse and her two children, but Marilyse has been worried that this would put more pressure on her and the relationship.

When it was time for their vow renewals, Franky read out his vows in the form of a poem, where he thanked her for sticking by his side and making him complete. At the end of the poem, Franky declared his love for Marilyse.

In her renewal vows, Marilyse said, “Thinking back to when I first met you on our wedding day, I have to admit that it was one of the best days I've ever had. I just knew you were in for a good ride.”

She continued, “I saw you fight through criticism from others because you came across too guarded. But from day one you showed me the real Franky and that's all you cared about. I’m so pleased because you showed everyone just how special you really are.

"I really don't want to hurt you. But we have had a few struggles mid-way which did make me question our relationship. I didn’t know if we were right for each other. But, I do want you to be part of my world, so let’s take each and every day as it comes. 

"Thank you for being my husband in this experiment. I couldn’t have gone through this with anyone else other than you.”
