“MAFS” Couple Melinda Willis and Layton Mills Announce Shock Split: “For the Best”
Just weeks after celebrating their one-year anniversary, “Married At First Sight” couple Melinda Willis and Layton Mills have confirmed that they’re parting ways. This shocking announcement has left fans and followers of the couple in disbelief.
From the moment the pair tied the knot on Season 10 of the show, their relationship became more public than most. Viewers watched them navigate the ups and downs of married life, making their eventual separation all the more surprising.
In a statement, the couple acknowledged their supporters, saying, “Hi all. We wanted to keep this private for the time being, but we have a lot of supporters that are invested in the relationship and owe it to you to be transparent.”
Why “MAFS” Melinda and Layton Parted Ways
The couple revealed that this decision was not taken lightly. After much thought and consideration, they decided that taking some time apart was the best course of action.
“After a lot of thought and consideration, we have sadly decided to both take time apart. We still care very deeply for each other, and this doesn’t mean our lives can’t come back together, but as of now, this decision is for the best,” the statement read.
“We want to express our heartfelt gratitude for all your support throughout our journey; it has meant the world to us. We hope you can understand and ask for your kindness and respect during this time. With love and gratitude, Mel and Layton.”
The announcement comes shortly after the couple celebrated their one-year anniversary in September. On social media, Melinda shared their joy and reflected on the past year.
“On Sunday night, we celebrated the 12-month anniversary of Melton ❤️🥂. Who would have thought! What an absolute crazy ride it’s been, and you guys have been there with us, through it all,” she captioned on Instagram.
The post also featured the beautiful eternity ring Layton gave her, a poignant symbol of their time as a couple.
It’s worth noting that Melinda and Layton faced unique challenges even after leaving the “MAFS” experiment. Layton lived in Sydney while Melinda resided in Brisbane, making their love story a long-distance journey from the start.
While it wasn’t the happy ending we all hoped for, we wish Melinda and Layton all the best.
