Description

Boy meets girl. Boy loses girl. Girl marries girl. Boy gets girl back, but then her family can’t stand him. Wondery’s new series is all about love, relationships, and the sometimes bumpy road to commitment. Host Ingrid Haas (Chelsea Lately, Key and Peele) recently got engaged herself, and she will explore stories from real couples to learn what went wrong, and how they finally got it right. She’ll recount surprise engagements featuring pop stars and tense wedding ceremonies. And she’ll look for answers to the questions that keep us up at night: Will I ever find someone? If I like it, will I put a ring on it? And how the hell does anyone get to happily ever after anyway?

As soon as Chris and Kim saw Iceland they knew it was where they wanted to get married. They quickly realized that Iceland was totally impractical for their aging parents, and for their friend’s budgets and vacation plans, so they found a Plan B. That was the first concession. Soon guest’s requests snowballed. Parents were unhelpful and stress grew until their dream wedding slipped away. And Ingrid wants to know: who is this wedding for, anyway? Follow Ingrid on Instagram!

Andy and Naomi didn't see money in quite the same way. Andy had committed himself to a life in comedy, which is another way of saying he’d taken a vow of poverty. He lived day to day. Naomi dreamed of being a comedian too, but she never planned to leave her full-time job with benefits. When she was laid off, she began to wonder if she could commit to forever with a man who’d rather buy a band T-shirt than save for a rainy day.  How can you support The Moment?
