Jilted: Hetero's Sanctifying Marriage Reality TV Style
Ummm, yuck. So the premise is that a woman who is in a relationship gives her man an ultimatum: marry me (in a week's time) or we're breaking up...and my humiliation will be on the TeeeeVeeee if you "jilt" me at the altar. Once again, yuck. I'm fine with adults having serious conversations about marriage/commitment, maybe even timelines (reasonable timelines--one week is not enough for self-reflection), but this is just gross. Once again, hetero's are proving how very sacred marriage is and how soooo in danger marriage would be if the gay's got to do it.
