The Truth About Marriage

Directed By: Roger Nygard | Runtime: 89 min | Plays In Short Block: None

A Malibu screenwriter marries a much younger bride imported from Prague — over the years their roles reverse. A couple in Eugene, Oregon marries after agreeing they will continue dating others after the wedding. An American rapper living and performing in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil vows to be single forever — six years later he is married with a four-year-old daughter. Their stories are full of twists, surprising lessons learned, and advice for others facing relationship problems. We all know the problems and the statistics: marriage rates are down, divorce rates are up, and over time people become more and more unsatisfied in their marriages. Never in human history have human beings expected so much from romantic partners. Monogamy is the rule, but humans are constantly violating it. Is love a spiritual thing or is it all chemicals? Why are men and women are attracted to very different things? Couples admit there is a big drop in sex after marriage, so how can they keep the passion fresh? What are the secrets that lead to happy relationships? Nygard tracked down the experts — and some extraordinary regular folks — to find all the answers to these questions.
