When it comes to our marriage, i’d say my husband and I are like two peas so to speak.

Reality Television Gone Too Far..

Really Married At First Sight? Could we come up with a more terrible premise for a reality show? Absolutely preposterous yet I can’t look away. It’s that sick need to look at a train wreck as it’s happening. Watch someone squirm in pain and anticipate what will happen next. My husband and I were glued to the tv! Embarrassing but true.
