EXCLUSIVE: Ashley Petta- Here’s Why I Wanted To Get Married At First Sight
This season of Married At First Sight– which was moved to Lifetime- is off to a great start. We recently got the chance to exclusively talk with star Ashley Petta about why she wanted to get married at first sight, what was going through her head when walking down the aisle, and more.
On why she wanted to get married at first sight, Petta told us that, “I wanted to get married at first sight because I was sick of the dating scene. I was finding it difficult to find someone that was willing to make a long term commitment. So I figured at the very least whoever I was matched with was willing to make a commitment and that’s a good start.”
So how was it actually walking down the aisle, preparing to marry someone she’d never met?
“I don’t even really have words to explain how I was feeling,” Petta shared. “I wasn’t really nervous. I was just anxious to get the whole wedding part over with so I could finally meet and get to know the man I could potentially be spending the rest of my life with. The two weeks leading up to the wedding were an emotional roller coaster. The unknown drove me crazy. The day of the wedding we were so busy I barely had time to even think about what was actually happening.”
“I didn’t have any regrets right away,” she added. “I felt a sense of relief after meeting Anthony. He was not bad on the eyes and he seemed pretty normal. I was thinking, ‘okay this might actually work!'”
“I think it (the idea that I was actually married) set in right away for me,” Petta wrapped with telling us. “It felt pretty surreal to be married to someone I barely knew but I knew what I signed up to do!”
We look forward to continuing to watch Petta’s journey on Married At First Sight tonight.
