They've been through the ups and downs life has thrown at them, they've put their relationship to the test in a relatively low-stakes situation, and they've come to a conclusion that they're ready to commit to a life together. For others, like the cast of Married at First Sight: Honeymoon Island, marriage is something that happens after spending a few weeks with someone on national television.
But hey, who are any of us to judge? Whether you're a hopeless romantic, a Bachelor Nation devotee who just can't wait for Colton's season, or simply someone who likes to watch messy drama unfold on a beach, this Lifetime show probably has something for you.
