‘You took every part of my heart and crushed it’: Married At First Sight’s Stacey Hampton slaps Michael Goonan on the last vows – before choosing to stay with him for being in love
Married At First Sight’s Stacey Hampton scolded Michael Goonan during their last vow ceremony on Sunday evening for his false scandal with Hayley Vernon.
The 26-year-old told Michael, 29, that he had made her feel “worthless” and “crushed her heart with his hands” – just minutes after he announced his love for her.
However, Stacey admitted that she has since forgiven Michael the pardon and agreed to leave the show together, eventually getting her ‘fairytale ending.’
The final blow: Married At First Sight’s Stacey Hampton (R) satirized Michael Goonan (L) during their last vow ceremony on Sunday evening over his deceptive scandal with Hayley Vernon
Michael was the first to read his romantic vows at their open-air ceremony.
He stumbled, “What a journey we have started. It feels like a lifetime since you were a stranger to me. You met me as a confused young boy. And now I stand before you as a more mature man and husband.
“I was arrogant, naive and immature. I thought I knew everything when it came to relationships – but how wrong was I? You could have given up on me so many times, but I know you saw the good in me. I am eternally grateful for this.
“You have become my stone and you make me a person that I am honestly proud of. Stacey, this decision is simple, you are my best friend, lover and soul mate. ‘

Stacey seemed overwhelmed by Michael’s words before reading her own words.
She started, “When I first heard you speak, I was concerned. I thought, “Here we go, another immature boy I’m about to take and give everything for” – but during the honeymoon, things started to change.
“I couldn’t remember the last time I laughed for so long – and I started to find hope in us. I started to feel comfortable and safe – finally my fairytale happened. Then it all fell apart. ‘
“You’re my best friend, lover and soul mate”: Stacey’s harsh words came after Michael confessed his love for her – saying he can’t see a future without her in it
The mother of two discussed Michael’s alleged drunk kiss with Hayley, who she said had happened repeatedly, but he claims to have no memory.
Stacey continued, “You were accused of cheating on me, and then all my hopes and renewed happiness disappeared. My heart stopped and I realized I was an idiot who let you in. I told you how the impact of my brother’s death and my father’s loss hurt me.
“I opened up and told you I just wanted to love and be loved. You took every part of my heart and crushed it with your hands. You made me feel worthless. ‘
“You did what you said you would do and you changed through actions”: Stacey further admitted that she has forgiven Michael forgiveness ever since, and that she is hopeful for their future
“I love you Michael, and nothing would make me happier than going here hand in hand with someone who can finally show me love and laughter,” she gushed
However, she added that despite this, Michael has proven to be reliable.
Stacey concluded, “I know you can talk your way out of a paper bag, so it was actions I had to see. Those actions started when you sent me flowers on my brother’s birthday. Then you stopped drinking alcohol and stopped attending events with the boys for six weeks.
“You did what you said you would do and you changed through actions. So here I am, share my deepest, darkest emotions with you. I know what we have is not perfect, but it took tears, heartbreak and a lot of compromises to get here – we are us and we are unbreakable.
“I love you Michael, and nothing would make me happier than going here hand in hand with someone who can finally show me love and laughter.”
The pair then shared a kiss before leaving the show together.
