The story surrounding how Myrla Feria’s father died was unveiled on Married At First Sight on August 11, which led to an uproar from fans.
Following the blind wedding on Lifetime’s MAFS, it’s crunch time, when the couples attempt to get to know each other to see if they really do match.
However, when Gil opened up to Myrla about how his father died, it appeared that she shut him straight down in the eyes of viewers.
This led to the discovery about how her own father was murdered, leading fans to search the Internet to find out what happened to him.

- Myrla did not name her father, but her mother is Bertha Feria
Myrla Feria, who did not name her father, was married before his death.
The MAFS star wants to honor her dad’s last name, which led fans to think that she does not want Gil’s surname added to her title.
Her mom, who is believed to be called Bertha, currently lives in Roma-Los Saenz, Texas, and turned 50 in January 2021.
Gloria Feria, who lived in Texas and is currently 33 years old, is also thought to be Mryla’s younger sister. She also has a brother.
Myrla has revealed that she is very money-driven, as she grew up in an “extremely poor” environment.
What happened to Myrla Feria’s father?
- He was allegedly killed by Myrla’s half-sister
She opened up to Gil about how her father was murdered at the hands of her half-sister, which led her to bond with him about their shared tragedy.
However, some fans think it may have been her step sister, as it was allegedly the daughter of the woman her dad married.
When she asked Gil how he felt about changing her last name, he told her he is traditional and thinks she should.
However, she thought otherwise. Myrla said:
For me, it would mean something more significant to change my name. It’s more symbolism for my dad, my dad is no longer with me.
She went on to add that it is “complicated”. But viewers suggest that she could hyphenate her father’s name and Gil’s together.

When he opened up to Myrla about how his father died, viewers thought she shut him down completely, which is suggestive of her own tragedy.
However, others thought the couple bonded over their loss of fathers.
