‘Married at First Sight’s Rachel Gordillo, 33, and Jose San Miguel Jr., 35 have chosen to go their separate ways after 8 months of marriage. While the couple got married after meeting each other on the show, they admit that they aren’t the perfect fit to each other.

Rachel Gordillo & Jose San Miguel Jr. revealed to People exactly what made them take the grave decision moving forward. Even though they claimed that they tried to make it work, they figured that they do not belong together.

Gordillo and Miguel Jr.’s relationship faced a lot of issues before, and were even covered in the last season of the show. Rachel is a special education evaluator while Jose works as a mission flight specialist.

After much thought, we have decided that we are better off going our separate ways

The couple still feel that they learnt a lot from each other, even though it was not meant to be. They added that the decision to separate is the best thing for their future.

It’s a decision we do not make lightly, but after some back and fourth and trying to make this marriage work we know this decision best serves our future. The MAFS journey taught us a lot about ourselves and what we both need in a partner. We are grateful to all those who stood by us throughout the last 8 plus months.

Jose and Rachel’s effort to make the marriage work was evident in their time on the show. While they’d seemed optimistic for the future, their decision is in-keeping with their consideration for their futures.
