Zach Justice and Mindy Shiben had one of the worst marriages on the show. It was no surprise when they divorced, but what are they up to now?
Mindy Shiben and Zach Justice first appeared on season 10 of Married At First Sight, but where are they now? On the show, their marriage never quite took off, as Zach decided not to move into the apartment participants are given on the show. Zach was closed off from Mindy and never fully opened up to her. They struggled to connect due to Zach’s indifference, so it was no surprise to fans when they chose to divorce. Now, they’ve both ventured out on their paths and appear to be happy, although Mindy has spoken out many times after the season about her time on the show.
Mindy and Zach were at odds throughout the entire process. On their honeymoon, Mindy felt as though her husband was treating her too much like a friend. Although Zach said he wanted a friendship to grow between the two of them, he later admitted he hadn’t built any attraction towards her. This was probably the beginning of the end. As the process continued, Zach drifted further and further away from Mindy. He wasn’t interested in spending time with her or getting to know her. The final nail in the coffin of their marriage, however, was when Mindy found out Zach had been inappropriately flirting with one of her friends. Unsurprisingly, the pair divorced. Luckily, it wasn’t the most disastrous divorce on the show.

Since their time on the show, Mindy has spoken out about her experience numerous times. According to Soap Dirt, Mindy had a bit of advice for future participants on the show. She said conflict resolution is an important part of making the relationship work. Mindy also says the show “never goes away.” The star claimed that, even after the season ended, fans still reached out to her and asked about Zach. In fact, the post-show drama was too much for Mindy, and she ended up moving to Mexico for a much-needed fresh start. She looks happy in her new home, and often posts travel pics and cute photos with friends on Instagram, showing her life wasn’t ruined by her MAFS experience. It was rumored she is dating a new man named Wil Slickers, though he doesn’t appear anywhere on her social media.
Zach, on the other hand, has been focused on his fitness career and business. He regularly posts pictures on his Instagram highlighting his impressive physique and giving tips to fans for workouts in the gym. He’s currently focused on his business, The Casual Athlete, and doesn’t appear to be dating much. At least, there’s no trace of a new special someone on his social media. Zach’s home base is Washington DC. Beyond his many gym pictures and videos, he also posts the occasional photo with his dog. He seems to have completely moved on from his time on MAFS. However, both he and Mindy seem content and happy in the post-reality TV lives.
During their season, Zach and Mindy weren’t the only couple that chose to part ways. Katie and Derek also divorced, despite initially staying together on decision day. The process can be tough on any relationship, and Mindy was correct in highlighting conflict resolution as an important aspect of the process. Many couples don’t know how to look past their anger and simply forgive the other person, which is a struggle many couples on Mindy’s season faced. Married At First Sight is an intense process, and the low success rate simply shows that not everyone is built for it.
