will give it another shot but over all slow and borring

ok I personally am not married I don't know if I am missing the jokes due to this or what but it just didn't do it for me It was sweet enough but at the same time very very borring will give it one last chance but will defenetly let it go fast if not funnier this week I liked the heart just not a lot of humor so try it for heart but don't expect much at all and ps I shouldn't have to say this but due to some people who may be wondering no its not for kids

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Family viewing it isn't. But Married might be the perfect match for mature viewers who have a soft spot for darkly crude humor and can take their main characters' motivations with a grain of salt. The series also puts a welcome spin on relationship comedy clichés and mines much-needed laughs from the flip side of marital bliss.

Greer and Faxon's chemistry is great -- in spite of the fact that their characters aren't supposed to have any in the bedroom. But their best friends (played by seasoned comedians Gelman, Slate, and Hodgman) are even better at doling out some of the worst relationship advice possible, particularly Slate, whose over-the-top Jess is the kind of friend you'd never want one of your kids to have.
