A refreshingly honest look into marriage and commitment - and what those things mean to different people. No two marriages are the same, but one thing is for certain...marriage ain’t easy! But Jo Piazza’s fascination with this age old institution leads to a behind the scenes look at the successes (and failures) that lead to a long-lasting marriage.
The stories, which feature people from all different walks of life, will be an inspiration to everyone, whether you are newly married, divorced, adoring singledom or have made it 50+years.
Can’t wait to hear more!
