Remember when marriage was a sacred thing and involved extended courtship followed by an engagement? Not anymore. Marriage is a joke now, hardly worth the paper it’s written on. Courtship? What’s that? Ain’t nobody got time for that! In fact there is even a reality show called ‘Marriage At First Sight’.
“Married at First Sight” is an extreme social experiment that follows six brave singles yearning for a life-long partnership as they agree to a provocative proposal: getting legally married to a complete stranger the moment they first meet. Four specialists – sexologist, Dr. Logan Levkoff; psychologist, Dr. Joseph Cilona; sociologist, Dr. Pepper Schwartz; and spiritual advisor, Greg Epstein – create what they believe are three perfect couples, based on scientific matchmaking. The couples will not meet until they walk down the aisle and see each other face-to-face, for the first time, at the altar. Over the course of several weeks, episodes capture each couple’s journey as they go from wedding, to honeymoon, to early nesting, to the daily struggle of working on their marriage. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to divorce?
Do you believe this? Are you still wondering why this place is so messed up? Beam me up, Scotty. Quick!
