There’s no denying that political differences can get in the way of a relationship.
So it was no surprise to see Married At First Sight’s Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli looking rather tense while waiting in line to vote in the federal election in Sydney on Saturday.
Martha, 30, looked frustrated as she clutched a yellow flyer from Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party.

The pair appeared to have a difference of opinion, with Michael, 27, holding onto a flyer that encouraged people to ‘vote for a safer climate’.
It’s unclear if Martha was for or against the United Australia Party, but the brunette looked annoyed, with her eyes wide and bulging as she waved it around.
Michael later attempted to soothe the makeup artist by rubbing her shoulders, but she looked unimpressed, crossing her arms and pouting.
Who is she supporting? Martha, 30, looked frustrated as she clutched a yellow flyer from Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party
‘I can’t believe you’d vote for them!’ The couple may have been having a disagreement over who to vote for
‘You can’t be serious!’ The 30-year-old looked stunned as she clutched the Clive Palmer flyer
However, the pair appeared to be in better spirits after casting their votes.
They held hands as they crossed a road, before sitting in a local cafe for a friendly conversation.
Martha recently admitted that she and Michael had been fighting recently in a video shared to her official YouTube channel.

‘I’m exhausted from fighting,’ she said, after boyfriend Michael made a surprise appearance during the YouTube Q&A.
Michael then asked his girlfriend to let him know when she was finished filming, to which she replied: ‘We’re fighting! I’m exhausted from fighting.’
She added: ‘I leave for Sydney tomorrow at 5am. I’m done now. We have to fight for 10 days straight. I’m not ready to just do forgiveness.’

Before leaving the room, Michael said he would like to speak with Martha privately before she leaves Melbourne.
‘No you won’t, babe! I’m banning your number from Optus. Don’t kiss me goodbye,’ she snapped.
Martha and Michael are one of just two couples still together after MAFS season six wrapped in December last year.
The other couple are Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant, who got engaged during their final vows ceremony.
