These people convinced me that they are REAL people, a bit exaggerated to be sure, but these couples CAN happen. In today's society, on your own street, we can have various levels of economic prosperity.
A poignant comedy about three contemporary married couples whose lives become intertwined despite their radically different lifestyles and past. Radically different jobs, upbringing, social status. They are brought together by their children's, or step-child's in one case, school play. The play centers around the 60's, something 2 of 3 couples know anything about first hand.
This is one fantastic story about the way things are, not as we would have them. Try going to other strangers homes and have a conversation. That's our couples situation at first, but they meld pretty well despite their present lives which are quite different.
In the end, all that glamour wears off and each couple finds their marriages in real trouble for several reasons each encounter through the film. I found this film entirely watchable and indeed, recomendable. If you are adult enough to appreaciate the human situation, one of good times and really bad times... check this out.
Ultimately, the title: Married To It, simply means you married it, you deal with it. If marriage means anything, it means hanging on, no matter what or whatever, because the alternative has no satisfaction for sure either.
