I watched it this morning!
I really liked the part where one of the counselors says that it’s not about finding/marrying the right person, but being the right person that will make all the difference in your marriage. It was totally scary to hear stats like:
8/10 marriages (I think in the US it was) involve infidelity.
Over 50% of married women admit to infidelity.
But it was nice to see that it can be overcome with some hard work… (Obviously it’s not right for every couple…) I just liked a lot of the things they said about relationships. (It really made me think that with all the stress going on right now like school, graduation, money, friends, wedding, family, moving, job applying for my fiance, an upcoming trip, etc. that I really haven’t been putting enough energy into my fiance (not that I think he’s anywhere near cheating!)…)
Anyone else watch? What did you think?

That is TERRIFYING. 8 out of 10? REALLY? That is my worst nightmare, ugh!

Yeah I am not so sure they were right on that statistic…And I’m not sure it necessarily means intercourse? Still, very scary, I agree! I’m not sure where they got that but it is very scary!

Did anyone watch today’s (6/6) show??
It focused on two women. One woman had an affair after feeling emotionally distant from her husband. She cheated with a co-worker but the husband never found out until after the divorce (which he was blindsided with). They had two beautiful little girls. Anyway they ended up being divorced for four years. The woman stayed with the co-worker but realized she made a huge mistake and she broke it off, went to therapy, and she got back with the ex-husband four years later!
The OTHER story , was with an Asian couple. They got married and began to have arguments about the house, etc. The husband would rage during the fights causing emotional distance. Then they tried to have children and the wife miscarried about three times, causing more strain and distance. She reconnected with an ex boyfriend who was a Black man. They of course begin to have sex for a year. Then what happens? She becomes pregnant, and realizes she cannot tell whose baby it was. She lies to her husband about the whole thing, pretending that’s his child until she has the baby and surprise, the baby is brown. The husband leaves the delivery room. A few days later, the wife goes to her “boyfriend’s” house and a woman answers who happens to be his WIFE. The boyfriend shows up, acts like he has no idea who the Asian woman is and basically wanted nothing to do with his son.
Anyway, the main couple decided to work it out, but the husband wanted her to give the baby up for adoption since the baby was a constant reminder. They give the baby up, and a year later have a baby of their own.
I mean WOW. Can you imagine being in that delivery room? What a horrible horrible thing to have happened. For him to forgive that is amazing, I know he was probably holding his breath during the next pregnancy.
I like that the show highlights the positive outcomes. I haven’t seen the other shows, but hopefully they’ve shown both the good and bad. I like that they feature therapists as well.
I liked that the therapist for the first couple said that people most always want to work the marriage out and should because most likely that person was the right person for you because you both chose one another.
I guess that’s why it explains why the relationship with the “other person” seems to never work out because it wasn’t about choosing that person because that person could have been anyone.

Oh My GOODNESS….
That is intense!
I dont want to say it is her fault, but i dont blame the husband, a brown baby? How could you even look at your wife when you know it couldnt be yours!
