Gedeon and A&R director Alaska Gedeon, who are a bi-coastal couple balancing their careers and marriage, using their religious beliefs as Christians to guide them; Indian international pop-star Tina Sugandh and tech geek Tarz Ludwigsen, who have struggled to find time together over the years and are hoping that getting married will change that, despite Tina's rising success in music and Tarz's focus on his new business; and Kathryn Bougadis and John Lagoudes, who, after a few months of marriage, become owners/operators of a Long Island tanning salon, where their personality differences clash when running the new business.
