Reality TV Show “Married at First Sight” Highlights Marriage Difficulties

February 16, 2016

Marriages are hard enough when the parties have had a long buildup to the official union. The premise of a popular reality television show, “Married at First Sight,” places even more pressure on marriage by requiring couples to get married without ever laying eyes on one another. A man and woman, who agree to marry before appearing on the show, meet for the first time and are then whisked away to a marriage ceremony. Over the course of the next six weeks, they live together as a married couple. At the end of the six-week period, the couple decides whether to stay married or get divorced.

The third season of “Married at First Sight,” which airs on the FYI network, just started. This season features three couples in relationships that are under heavy strain, with more than one couple appearing to be on the verge of breaking up – and divorcing – before the season finale.

Early episodes this season suggested that only one of the three couples would end up sticking with their marriage. While all of the pairs seemed to get along, the reality behind this reality TV show is that there are many different issues that can arise, and cause complications, during a marriage. For example, Vanessa and Tres, perhaps the show’s strongest couple, have already openly discussed whether they want to have children – a common issue that would-be married couples typically discuss before tying the knot.

Children can also be a major issue when a married couple makes the difficult decision to get a divorce. For example, child custody is often contentious, particularly when both spouses want to maximize the amount of time they get to spend with their children after the divorce is finalized. Additionally, many divorce settlements are made more difficult when there is a disagreement over the amount of child support that is to be provided by one spouse.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
