    Anyone watching this show on 7? My DH is away for work this week so I get free rein to watch whatever trash I want 😂

    The only thing I am thinking is how sad I feel for the people involved. If they had developed a show about couples struggling in their relationships and following them through constructive therapy and how they tackle their different m relationship difficulties then yeah MAYBE that would be a reasonable tv show.
    But they're putting people in troubled relationships essentially in situations to tempt them to cheat and see what the grass is like with a different partner. Without even going into the actual people involved I think the premise of the show is really off.
    Anyone else catch this and what do you think?

    We watched it and I have no idea why.
    I feel a bit sick at the whole premise.
    Don't try and dress up drama as genuine caring for participants.
    One bed, tropical paradise location, alcohol - all designed to cause as much drama as possible.

    I want to slap myself! Hahaha I can't believe I watched it and that I let it make me so angry!

    I watched it with H. I said to him I wish we could go on it. I can see our relationship in so many things these couples said..

    Agree - it's basically Temptation Island. I figured that going in though so not angry here! I do wish they hadn't chosen couples with children though, that makes it seem much more exploitative.

    I hope this isn't too forward @Louise41 and I'm sorry you feel your relationship has those issues. Would you be ok on the partner swap with the set-up aspect of the one bed, spa etc? Or just the opportunity to take time to look at your relationship with professional assistance?
    I'm just not sure how well these couples are going to do in actually repairing their relationships under these conditions, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. Although DH will be back and on holidays for 2 weeks after the weekend so I'm not sure I'll get to see the next installment as he totally loathes reality tv 😁

    U can sleep in a bed with opposite sx and not have touch so that doesn't worry me. Same with spa.

    I think for me I'd like to see how my H would be with a different woman. Is the lack of affection and intimacy in our marriage due to me or is he really not a person that wants or needs to touch his wife. H doesn't show me any physical affection or attention. Does that make sense

    What's there to feel sorry for them fot gingermille..they chose to go on the show and air their whole relationship. They are being paid for it. They out themselves in that situatuon. The whole idea is a bit sickening person to me. What person sees that as a way of fixing their relationship ? !?

    I didn't watch but I feel uncomfortable with the idea that the fix to relationship problems lie outside the relationships. Seems like a recipe for disaster to me
