What happened to Ning and Mark on Married at First Sight Australia?

Mark Scrivens and Ning Surasiang got off to a rocky start on their wedding day with Ning candidly admitting at the altar, "I'm just here for the food." But the couple then had many up moments, including their trip to the Gold Coast.

Hairdresser Ning and ex-army officer Mark had a number of fiery rows on camera but looked as if they patched things up when they made it all the way to the commitment ceremony at the end of series six.

Ning and Mark had their ups and downs on the show

However, viewers saw things take a dramatic turn when Mark dumped Ning while giving his vows. He told Ning: "Ning, I came on here to find love, but I haven't found it with you. Even though my feelings for you are strong, I don't see these feelings being strong enough to survive for you after this experiment ends. And they aren't strong enough to ask you to move your entire life and three children to a new city, just for me."

The couple then parted ways, and Ning even teased that the might have reconciled at the reunion. She later said: "Let's just say I went back to his place after the reunion.

"Look, anything is possible, and of course we still talk. I don’t want to give anything away, but women and men need to have some hope in their lives, and it’s not over until the fat lady sings, and hopefully I can become that fat lady one day."
