Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Married to Jonas features the now-married Kevin Jonas and his wife as they balance wedded life, in-laws, and the responsibilities that come with the Jonas' musical empire. No doubt that fans of the trio will want to tune in (especially since Nick and Joe are also on the show), but while most of the the content is mild enough for older tweens, it does contain some sexual innuendo (most of which will go over younger kids' heads), social drinking (wine, champagne), and mild arguments. The series is a promotional vehicle for the group's new album and upcoming tour.
What's the story?
The reality series MARRIED TO JONAS offers an inside look at the lives of Kevin Jonas, a member of the world-famous musical trio the Jonas Brothers, and his wife Dani, as they enjoy wedded bliss while dealing with loving but intrusive in-laws, Kevin's fame, and starting a family. Adding to the pressure is Kevin and his brothers' plan to release a new album and go on tour. Being married isn't always easy, but the two never forget why they got together, and work things out one day at a time.
Is it any good?
The voyeuristic series highlights some of the challenges and sacrifices the likable young couple faces as they try to negotiate their desire to have a family with the artistic and business responsibilities that Kevin's musical career requires. It also shows how the two work at understanding and interacting with their respective in-laws in a way that is both loving and respectful.
Jonas Brothers fans will delight in the chance to see what life is like at home and in the studio for Kevin and brothers Nick and Joe, who appear regularly on the show. But these young men are now adults, and so are some of the issues they are dealing with. Nonetheless, the overall show is pretty mild, and fans of the pop group will no doubt find it worth tuning in to.
