Would You Like a Relationship Ref?

Jerry Seinfeld's ability to find humor in everyday situations made me love him. Now he's hoping that this brand of laugh-at-life humor will make his new show The Marriage Ref a hit. On the show, celebrities listen to married couples describe an intractable argument. The panel includes celebs known for their stable family lives (like Kelly Ripa) and some known for messy divorces (like Alec Baldwin), who then discuss the dilemma and ultimately issue a judgment.

When I saw a commercial I found the premise promising, but after last night's sneak peek, many critics expect the show to be a dud. Still I'm curious how you like the concept of having strangers weigh in on your relationship arguments. When you can't decide what color to paint your walls, where to spend the holidays, or what movie to see on the weekend, would life be easier if you could just present your argument and let a relationship ref pick a winner?

Excuse me :) I just misspelled the words *television* and *embarrass* up there.

I wouldn't waste my time watching this trash. There is TOO much reality televison these days....now it's really getting ridiculous. If you're willing to completely embarass yourself or put your children through drama on television for you're own personal gain for a buck, then the networks will give you a show. The networks couldn't care less about the person or their children's mental well being as long as the ratings are good.

I watched this and was disappointed. That being said, how about just flipping a coin?

This could come it handy every once in a while for a laugh. My bf and I are the type of people that always think we are right about everything. Luckily we agree on most things. I'll give this show a chance and watch it.

Of course not -- part of being a grown up is being able to deal with conflict within your relationship with your partner. Hubs and I know when to work things out for ourselves or agree to disagree (in the case of little stupid things).
