Light reality about money choices has some drinking.

This lighthearted series shows couples from all walks of life trying to decide if they're going to spend their money on a once-in-a-lifetime wedding event, or invest in a home that gives them long-term benefits. Each pair of lovebirds have their own dreams about their nuptials. They also have long lists of what they want their first home to have. As a result, couples often experience sticker shock as they learn the true costs of both.

Marriage Or Mortgage isn't the most exciting of shows, mainly because the overall series feels contrived from start to finish. The working relationship between Nichole Holmes and Sarah Miller is a professional mismatch, and how they go about ‘surprising' the couples with bonuses to entice them to choose one option over the other feels preplanned. Nonetheless, it's fun to see what the couples choose to do, and how it turns out in the end. Ultimately, it's worth tuning into if you're looking for some reality fluff.
