Sunday night’s episode saw Matthew tying the knot with Lauren in Byron Bay on the New South Wales coast.
After the nuptials, Matthew pulled his new bride aside to discuss something that had been on his mind.
‘For me, honesty is very important. I feel like there’s something I want to tell you and something you should know about me,’ he began.
Fears: Prior to the couple’s wedding on Sunday night, Matthew was petrified of revealing to Lauren, 31, that he was still a virgin
‘I’ve sort of been on the fence about whether or not I should tell you because you know it’s been weighing on me a bit, it’s a big thing.’
Gaining the courage to do so, Matthew finally told Lauren that he’s ‘actually still a virgin’.
While her initial reaction was just ‘s**t,’ she later told Matthew that it wasn’t a deal-breaker.
Raw emotions: Seated outside of their reception venue, Matthew told Lauren that he wanted to be honest with her from the start of their relationship
‘In no way would I ever have expected to do that tonight,’ Lauren said. ‘I know it’s a wedding and everything, and that’s what people do, but to me, I want to get to know you on a deeper level.
‘I want to be able to trust you and have a deeper connection before we do something like that,’ she added.
Married At First Sight continues Monday at 7.30pm on the Nine Network
