Following their dreamlike Hawaiian honeymoon, Kirk and Laura try to settle into married life but it's not so easy when Kirk would rather indulge in his expensive aquarium hobby than help Laura around the house. Erik and Nadine set off on their epic honeymoon across two continents, but soon realize that they may know less about each other than they thought. Tensions hit a boiling point when Laura gets fed up with Sam's meddling family, and she decides to let them know during a family barbeque. Meanwhile, Toi struggles to find her place in Hayward after giving up her fabulous life in LA, and Rouvaun's constant traveling only makes her feel more lonely.

The Newlyweds premiere show is pretty engaging--especially without the fake fights and forced drama.New York Post Full Review
The sincerity of the enterprise is in inverse proportion to its fun. [13 May 2013, p.49]People Weekly Full Review

Instead of mining the opportunity to expand its view of a meaty topic, Newlyweds falls back on the sort of bad habits that can ruin a relationship (made-for-TV or otherwise), and far from being fabulous in its design, has instead recycled Bravo’s same old pattern.Variety Full Review
Spontaneity is scripted; hopes and dreams are meant to be crushed; the woeful are exalted; characters are unsympathetic.Wall Street Journal Full Review
