Kids say (1 ):

This silly reality show claims to be a social experiment designed to help partners gain a better perspective about their relationships with each other before deciding to tie the knot. However, the series is more sensational than insightful, and mainly focuses on flirtations, jealousies, and the inevitable emotional attachments that emerge between the participants throughout the process. Despite this attempt at creating dramatic tension as the couples must choose between getting engaged and breaking up, the overall series just feels flat and drawn out. But perhaps the most disturbing part The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On is the fact that few participants seem to fully grasp what marriage is really about, or why they aspire to it.
