I'm Married to a...
- 1 Season
In this reality television series each episode features two couples that have had to overcome various obstacles to maintain a successful relationship because of the unconventional nature of their match-ups. Often some aspect of one of the partners would be a deal-breaker to most people looking for a long- term relationship. In what has become the norm in reality TV programming, the more unusual the people being profiled the better. The couples are interviewed explaining how their day-to-day lives play out and how their marriages may seem shockingly unusual to most outsiders, but in fact they relate to each other in a loving and committed manner that has more in common with traditional relationships than one might expect. In addition to the interview segments, viewers see the couples interacting with each other at home, as well as in their frequently controversial working environments. Some of the episodes have dealt with such couples as the following: Reid and his wife Kelly who stars in her own Internet sex show, Virginia and Alayne who are both strippers in a three-way marriage with the same man. Michael is a quadriplegic. He and his wife Dana are coping with unique challenges as they decide to try to start a family. Josh appears to have a solid traditional marriage with his wife Lolly considering that he is a Mormon who also happens to be gay. One segment is devoted to the story of Ian who is in a relationship with twin girls. Major conflicts arise when the girls family threatens to disown them when they become aware of what is going on. Included among some of the other couples featured have been cross-dressing husbands, closeted lesbians and a man who claims to have been abducted by aliens. While the program is chock full of transgenders, gay porn stars and little people, the common thread running through all these stories of odd couples is that love and compatibility come in all shapes, sizes, and orientations.
