    The non-toxic intimacy of these struggles--a rarity in reality TV--and the recognizable nature of these lives should keep plenty of viewers glued to the screen.

    While it isn't as tacky as the MTV hit, it does wallow in uncomfortable moments in therapy and exposes people at their most vulnerable. These couples should have checked their love handles in private.
