I'm Married to a... features a wide-variety of couples who have found happiness with each other, but who must work through challenges posed by the differences that exist between them. While some couples try to find ways to live mainstream lives despite a spouse's physical limitations and/or disabilities, others must contend with the preconceptions and social disapproval surrounding the their partner's behavior or beliefs. They must also negotiate the disapproval and moral judgments imposed on them by friends and family who are unwilling to accept their unconventional ways.

The wide range of intimate scenes shown here, along with the moments in which couples reveal their secrets to loved ones, creates lots of titillatingly voyeuristic moments that will appeal to reality fans. But not everyone will be comfortable with some of behaviors featured here, or a spouse's willingness to accept them. Nonetheless, the show demonstrates how some folks are able to find love and happiness with someone thanks to their ability to open their minds and their hearts to individuals who are considered different from the mainstream.
