A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

All of the couples profiled are committed to their marriages, which is a good message in today's disposable culture.


Fistfights are sometimes discussed as the stars deal with fans and get into rowdy situations.


Plenty of sexual innuendo. The frequency depends on who's being profiled; in the Sebastian Bach episode, for example, his wife was very open about their active sex life.


Bleeped out curses galore, depending on the stars being profiled.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Depending on the couple profiled, can run the gamut from very little to heavy drinking and smoking.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this reality show centers around how stars and their non-celebrity spouses make their marriages work. Showing musicians and other stars who are committed to their relationships work is a nice change amid the typical dirt of other celeb-focused shows. That said, some episodes do involve excessive drinking, talk of drug use, and sexual innuendo.

What's the story?

In VH1's I MARRIED..., viewers get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how celebrities and their non-star spouses make their marriages work. In each episode -- in between interviews in which the featured couple talks about how they first met and what it was like when they were dating -- viewers are treated to footage from the celeb's youth and time spent in the spotlight, as well as photos from the couple's personal stash. Then viewers hear how they made it to the altar and what life is like for them and their families now. For the most part, the stars who are profiled are decidedly C-list: Carnie Wilson, rapper MC Hammer, Hootie and the Blowfish's Darius Rucker, rockers Sebastian Bach and Sammy Hagar, and The Apprentice's Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth have all been featured.

Is it any good?

Though the underlying message -- that these couples are committed to each other and determined to make their marriages work -- is a good one, parents may want to base their decision on whether or not to let kids watch on which star is scheduled to be featured.
