MARRIED At First Sight were shocked as Arthur Poremba snubbed the reunion show after being savagely dumped by wife Laura.
Last night the couples reunited for the final commitment ceremony of the series.
But it was clear that a few people were missing including Nathaniel Valentino, who was partnered with the show's first trans bride Ella Morgan Clark.
Tennis coach Arthur also decided to skip the reunion not long after his wife called it quits at the final vow ceremony.
Relationship expert Melanie Schilling told the couples: "Before we dig into the relationships, we just wanted to say thank you to each and every one of you for letting yourselves be open and vulnerable throughout the process.
"We know that this can be really tough but we hope regardless of whether you are sitting here tonight with your soulmates, that you've personally benefited from the graft that you've put in."

The love guru then revealed: "Now Arthur and Nathaniel can't be with us today but we wish them both all the best."
Many fans were gutted that Arthur was missing from the last episode.
One wrote: "So why was Arthur and Nathaniel not there? I’m sure that was a tweet where Paul C Brunson said Nathaniel would be there when someone asked."
Another posted: "Arthur! It would have been nice to see him at the final reunion, but I guess he’s checked out & moved on. I just hope he finds someone who loves him for him, as he’s adorable."

MAFS UK Laura ended her relationship with Arthur in their final vowel renewal ceremony.
Earlier this week he revealed his true feelings about Laura.
Writing on Instagram, Arthur said: "Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
"Thank you for what’s probably going to be one of the best experiences of my humble life.
"This journey has taught me a few things. I’ve learnt that it’s ok not to be ok, you don’t always have to pretend that you’re the strongest person alive, it’s ok to be vulnerable at times and show your feelings and emotions when needed."
He added: "Thank all the crew and cast members but most importantly Laura for putting up with me behind closed doors -I’ve said and done so many things that didn’t even make the edit!"
Arthur was left visibly upset during Monday night's show after he expressed a desire to stay with Laura.
However she did not feel the same and told him: "I know we've grown as individuals in this process, but the more I grow as a person the more I grow apart from you.
"I've always been a fixer, but I've realised this relationship is something that can't be fixed.
"You helped me realise what I don't want and I'm going to give you this [wedding ring] back, but thank you for making me realise who I am.
"You'll be perfect for someone, but it won't be me."
Arthur later revealed the brutal dumping made him feel "like crap" and said: "I didn't really see it coming."
