Reality TV shows might not be your first port of call when it comes to life lessons, but Married at First Sight is proving to be an epic education in all things love. Only two weeks in, we've already learned that looks aren't the important part, but they do matter, that similar routines are important but a shared bonding experience is more so and, um, how not to fight in a new relationship.

Of all the couples, Jono and Clare struggled the most with their new-found marital status — so much so, they split just a few weeks into the experiment. Their strong personalities didn't make for an easy transition into cohabitation, but it's not just them: many couples will experience a similar situation when they move in together for the first time. As the show's psychologist, John Aiken, explains, relatability is part of the beauty of the show. "Everyone is able to look at the couples, invest in them and see that, 'Wow, there are certain things they're doing that we do. And you know what, the way that one of us is talking, we can't do that.' So they're sort of learning along the way as they watch the show."

To see what we can learn from Jono and Clare (in particular, how not to break up), we asked John, pictured above, for his wisdom.
