Good episode? Give it some love!
There’s plenty of criticism about the gaslighting on display in the current season of “Married At First Sight” and concerns that it's triggering viewers and victims of domestic abuse.  Former MAFS contestant Natasha Spencer joins host Sami Lukis to talk about her own traumatic experience with domestic abuse and to discuss whether gaslighting and this kind of disgusting behaviour should be shown on reality TV.
