I haven’t watched it, but can bet it is scripted and creates intentional drama to increase viewership. While I am sure there are couples who struggle, I doubt there is as much drama among most couples.

We have been married 1 1/2 years (together for 11 1/2 and living together for 7 years), our first year was great. But I am sure it would have made for really boring tv. 

Now, with all that said…I will be changing the channel to at least “check out” some of the show. 🙂

i also agree with the poster above, my marriage (1.5 years, together 6 years) is pretty “boring”. We have a house and a baby and 2 dogs. We rarely argue and a hot night out for us is watching Downton Abbey and enjoying some takeout sushi. It’s quiet and peaceful. 

One of the guys on the show is a former good friend of my husband’s going back to their days at college (they were also in the same frat). He chatted with the guy the other day on facebook about their role on the show and we’re watching it now just to laugh at how it’s been edited.

  • Wedding: October 2013

My first year of marriage went something like this: went on honeymoon. Moved in together. Bought fluffy white dog. Hung out with friends. Went to lots of restaurants and made lots of homemade dinners. Enjoyed being married. Biggest fight- Dh had an issue with moving the shower head and getting water outside of the tub. Fixed issue with new shower head. 

I can’t imagine what issues we would have to have to be on a reality show about our first year married, but this concept doesn’t sound great for those dramatic couples.
