MAFS Australia: Are Melissa Sheppard And Joshua White Still Together?

On MAFS Australia, Melissa Sheppard even did not shy away from confessing that she is very comfortable with her sexuality and expects her sexy man to keep up with her. And recently, amid the release of the show, she teased on social media to think before judging, criticizing, and drawing conclusions on her journey on MAFS. “Remember you only know what you think you know”, she dropped confidently.

So, once on the reality show, she got married to Joshua White. They had gotten married in August 2022 in a $60 million heritage-listed gothic mansion in Darling Point.

In a clip from the show, the very husband of Melissa was seen complaining that he is not keen on being seen as “sexual eye candy” by his wife. Melissa, on the other hand, kept confessing that she is a “little freak in the sheets”. Viewers could even see her get giddy over a pair of handcuffs. No doubt, she is dubbed the “h*rniest bride” this season. Twitter users went wild over her frank discussions about her s*x life. One thought she had had a wine or 12.

Having said that, more details concerning this couple were yet to follow. Both had not yet come out and about with their relationship status.

Joshua, according to his LinkedIn profile, has been working as a senior marketer at a marketing agency in Sydney’s CBD for some good time now. His outstanding CV, which spans nearly 15 years, also includes work with entertainment giants like Electronic Arts (EA), Universal Pictures, and SEGA.

Joshua actually also helped launch The Sims 4: Cats and Dogs.
