The batch of couples on Married at First Sight season 13 isn’t known for being the most compatible bunch, but Myrla Feria and Gil Cuero clash more than any other pair on the season. The newlywed’s differences were exposed from the start, as even Gil’s appearance was an immediate dealbreaker for Myrla. From different political opinions to Myrla from MAFS‘s demanding nature, fans don’t have faith in Myrla and Gil’s marriage lasting beyond the show.
Myrla and Gil’s marriage seemed like it wasn’t meant to be from the moment the season 13 stars laid eyes on each other. Before she even walked down the aisle, Myrla was nicknamed the “Picture Perfect Princess” because of her perfectionist tendencies. On the other hand, Gil has demonstrated that he is a flexible partner. While Gil might be willing to bend over backwards to make the marriage work, Myrla appears to be uncompromising when it comes to her marriage expectations. Whether they’re just not meant to be or the Married at First Sight experts set them up for failure, Myrla and Gil’s marriage appears doomed.
Myrla came into Married at First Sight with a long list of demands for the series’ infamous matchmakers. While some fans are critical of Myrla having requirements, others appreciate that she was honest about what would allow her to have the best chance at a successful marriage. Myrla told Pastor Cal Roberson that she didn’t want a husband that was bald. This might come off as shallow, but Myrla simply asserted that she wouldn’t be attracted to a man without a head of hair. It’s hard to imagine that this Married at First Sight pair will have a long-lasting marriage if Myrla isn’t attracted to Gil. Another dealbreaker that doesn’t have a solution is Myrla’s distaste for dogs. The Married at First Sight season 13 husband has a strong bond with his pet pit bull. He won’t give up his pooch for Myrla.
Myrla and Gil further exemplified their incompatibility when the topic of politics came up. While on their honeymoon, Gil explained that he wouldn’t have a problem being in a relationship with someone who has opposite political views. Myrla laughed at this and joked that she wanted “the divorce check” right away. Although Gil assured Myrla that they’re both in support of the same political party, Gil explained that he can back whichever political candidate is best for his career. As a staunch Democrat unable to embark on a relationship with a Republican sympathizer, Myrla might not be able to withstand her husband’s political leniency. The pair’s contrary responses to political issues underscore just how different Myrla and Gil from MAFS are on a fundamental level.
No couple is perfect but Married at First Sight‘s experts really missed the mark while matching Myrla and Gil. From ignoring Myrla’s request for a husband with a head or hair and no dog to their opposite takes on politics, these two seem remarkably wrong for each other. The couple still has time to find some common ground, but Myrla and Gil may prove that tying the knot on Married at First Sight doesn’t always lead to a happy ending.
