Re­spect needed in re­la­tion­ships

The TV Guide - - MR TELLY -

When watch­ing Mar­ried At First Sight NZ (was Three), I felt in­creas­ingly in­tol­er­ant and frus­trated. These peo­ple are look­ing to es­tab­lish a re­la­tion­ship but with so many of them it’s “I want”, “Please me”, “Give me”, “I need”, “You should”,“You don’t” and “You aren’t”. Re­la­tion­ships are built by con­sid­er­ing the needs of the other per­son, re­spect­ing their feel­ings and sup­port­ing one an­other. Some of the cou­ples demon­strated very lit­tle of that.

I think there is an old say­ing about some­thing you hate and fin­ish up lik­ing and that’s my re­ac­tion hav­ing watched Mar­ried At First Sight NZ. I hated it, but loved it. I can only say hav­ing cel­e­brated 54 years of mar­ried life, the ma­jor­ity of can­di­dates were so ill-matched.
