Late last summer, we reported that divorced Married At First Sight star Jon Francetic was dating Dr. Jessica Griffin.
They’ve been an item for a while now — since a little over five months after Jon Francetic’s season concluded filming.
Now, Jon and Jessica havea very exciting announcement: they’re engaged!
Jon Francetic rose to fame on Married At First Sight, but ultimately ended up getting divorced.
But that show still helped him find love, if indirectly — because he’s now engaged to the show’s relationship expert. Dr. Jessica Griffin.
“I just love how happy she looks,” Jon writes alongside a sweet photo of the couple on Instagram.
“Oh, and we got engaged at the Grand Canyon yesterday!” he announces. “And now @dr.jessicagriffin is mine foreverrrr”
Jon then includes the tags: “#shesmine #nervouswreck.”
“I have always said,” Jessica writes. “You can find love in extraordinary ways.”
She expresses: “you just have to follow your heart and be you, nobody other than you,”
“And,” the relationship expert continues. “The right person will find you.”
Jessica then jokes: “(if he’s persistent enough and eventually hunts you down and won’t take no for an answer).”
She’s joking a little, here. If a man actually hunts you down and won’t take no for an answer, please call the police.
“For the first time in my history of knowing him,” Jessica writes. “Jon was at a loss for words and a total adorable mess on his knee.”
That sounds so precious.
“So, of course, I said yes,” she gushes.
Jessica then jokes that she was “just helping a guy out.”
Real talk: sometimes, pity engagements happen. But this was clearly not one.
“Today,” Jessica shares. “We celebrated yesterday’s Grand Canyon engagement by a sick mountain bike trail ride in Sedona.”
Unfortunately, as is always the risk when you accellerate your body on a thin metal frame with minimal protections, things went sideways.
Jessica divulges: “where I decided to faceplant via an endo (where you flip head over feet over your handle bars)”
“And landed on face,” she admits. “Likely breaking nose, bike landing on top of me and jacked up both legs.”
“Hey,” Jessia writes. “In my defense, I was a little distracted by this incredible guy.”
She concludes by gushing: “I love you with everything I have.”
As we mentioned, they waited more than five months after the season wrapped filming before they began dating.
It has now been more than half a year since the two of them announced to the world that they are dating.
Some fans of Married At First Sight have been worried that perhaps Jessica unintentionally breached ethical boundaries.
After all, she’s an expert with “Dr.” in her name and she’s dating a guy who, some would say, was essentially her patient.
But please keep in mind that she was essentially playing a role on a reality television show. She was not his real-life therapist.
Nobody’s preying upon someone else or grooming them into some sort of rebound spouse.
Two adults just met under unusual circumstances, fell in love, and got engaged. Congratulations to them both!
