    It's perfectly fine for 2 wannabe "Reality Star," Heteros to get wed after only knowing each other through selfies and meeting each other for the first time in person. But two same sexers that might truly love each other isn't ok b/c it desecrates the "Sanctity of Marriage?!!!" icon_rolleyes.gif

    I don't know about this show. More background info, please. Because I'm missing your point.

    OK, I quickly looked into this reality show. Looks like a televised version for the US market of standard wedding practices in Afghanistan - the arranged marriage. And it is in fat being decried by some religious leaders, for violating the "Sanctity of Marriage".

    Only, of course, if you believe marriage to be the exclusive, sanctified property of God and his self-appointed servants. When in reality, in the US at least, marriage, all marriages, are civil ceremonies. Whether performed by clergy with all the church trimmings or not, or by a civil judge, that's what they are.

    The GOVERNMENT determines what is marriage in the US, not God.

    BTW, these instant TV marriages are called "social experiments" managed by the likes of show staffer Dr. Pepper Schwartz. Could I make that up?

    The title itself sounds like a paid joke to me . . . "married at first sight" . . . be glad it doesn't piggyback off of slice tv's "the undateables" lmao
