chaircover: To be honest, it is going to be virtually impossible to get this exercise to mimic the reality shows that we watch on TV.

Why? because first of all we are all a judgmental lot and no one is going to confess to insulting her husband/slapping his wife on here even though we know that these things do happen and also because as far as I know, there are only 3 married couples on nairaland. . . . of course there may be more but to get a real fly on the wall rounded view of the full marriage, both husband and wife have to be on here to give their own personal thoughts/views/narration of events.

I may also come and share something which may be totally different from the way that my husband sees it. So I am not really sharing the REAL BALANCED experience and I am just stating things from my own point of view which though may be true for me, may not sit the same way with my husband.

At most, what we will get from this is a diary of events seen from one part of the marriage side (which I gave an example on happy friday) and so I think that we should treat this as it is, which is just some fun to peer behind some curtains.
It is certainly not a marriage seminar or marriage counseling course, and therefore anyone should be welcome married or not, happy or not to share anything at all about their relationships.

I am glad you responded CC because tbh i see you are totally into the concept of the reality show because you share the same beleifs about marriage as the OP so birds of a feather flock together as the saying goes. Even if its one person sharing the expereince from the marriage it is ok. But let their be variety for crying out loud. Look marriage today with so many obstacles does not replicate the disney cinderella fairytale etc. People have issues and this good and bad marriage thing is simply too old and played out. You mentioned no one is going to say they slapped their wife/husband. Well perhapes you may not say so, but i have always been completly honest to a fault on NL and yes i would say if i fought physically with my DH.

The truth is some of you people are to secrative hiding behind you know what putting up a personna that does not exist. Making it look like your relationships are problem free, deceiving yourselves and that is why you cannot come and NL and admit to any issues in your marriage. Then their are teh one's like me who post with brutal honesty and get crucified for it. Any how you people do your show but in my opinion it showed be called fantasy land and not a "reality show" because it just does not have the fundations for such IMO.

Re: Family Section Reality Show - Keeping Up With Nairalanders by Nobody: 2:53pm On Nov 25, 2012
Can Tgirl please delete insulting comments on this thread? Else this thread will be detailed . If anyone has issues with a fellow nairalander's marriage or marital belief or what not ,seek another thread and trash it out with the person there. Some of you victim players are becoming boring and honestly all I just wanna do is yawn.

Thank you.

What a venomous post. Was the attack on CC necessary?

This is a beautiful thread that promises to be interesting and provide light hearted entertainment. Why turn it into a battle ground?

We all know this is work-in-progress and Tgirl's asked for suggestions on how to make it better. You started off with some good and positive suggestions. Your last paragraph however dripped with acid (literally).

I'd like to believe we're all responsible adults here, so pls let's act it. Now that's my 2 cent's.

Wislet: yea, I agree with CC.
NO JUDGING, NO SNEERS, NO RAISED EYEBROWS OR 'ADVICES'.
Just a REALITY show.
The participants should lay it down as it is, NO ONE is perfect.
There are no prices to be won. No marks to be awarded.
.
There'll be reactions though, to spice it up grin

Serubawon, up there is my response to ur concern. One of the conditions for the couples is that they have to be real as real can be. They only thing considered personal is any info that poses as a threat to their family now or in the future.

Also, though couples are expected to be plain and open, they however hold exclusive right to what they might want to share. U can't hold anyone responsible for hoarding gist. It's their lives, it's their business.

We can all lead by example by volunteering to share. wink

chaircover: agiboma there was absolutely no need for any of that and I am not going to go down into the gutter with you which is what you clearly want. You have been conveniently ignored for long enough and it will surprise me if anyone bothers to rise to your bait.

However for the record, By all means its a free forum, so feel free to paste whatever you want about your relationship. No one!!! absolutely no one!!!! is stopping you.

Just one small thing whilst I have your attention . . . .errrmmmmm how do you know that anyone is putting up a persona that doesn't exist & deceiving ourselves as you say? and since you know this already, shouldn't you just deal with yours and leave everyone elses? undecided

anyways have a good afternoon and I am looking forward to hear from a true marriage as per the gospel of st agi.

BB your attention is needed here!!

BB is not needed at all let the woman B. yes and please do keep on ignoring me, thats a good thing. You know i am very outspoken and must say things my way as you do likewise. Its a pitty i dont follow and belong to your group that is why i am considered an outsider hey that's ok with me. What work's in my house wont work in your and vice versa. Anyhow GL to you people with your show.
@Efenma not an attack just stating the obvious or perhapes you are part of them i am not sure i have not really read up on much of your post either way i must always voice my opinion till i get banned. Lastly my last paragraph dripped with acid because the truth hurts simple its human nature, maybe this rings through in your life IDK and im not making any assumptions but its time people step in to the reality of life which is harder for some to do than others.

I thank God we all communicate with a common language - English. I believe there's nothing on this thread too hard for anyone to comprehend. And just as Jenny said, plz carry personal beefs away from this thread. I intend for this thread to serve as the official comment. Kindly avoid derailing it.

Having said that, please expects update shortly.

Good evening all,

We are sorry the Nairaland online Reality Family Show would not premiere today due to reasons beyond our control.

We have 3 families on board:

The Naija Folks - Meet the Naija Folks
The Sienas - keeping up with the Sienas
The Jarus' - Mr and Mrs Jarus.

This show promises to be fun as these 3 families will take us on a ride into their world. We get to see the thrills, the excitement, the tears, the fights, the make-ups, the dates, the temptations, the lonely nights, the celebrations and all.

There's never gonna be a dull moment.

Programme Run-down (Naija time)

- Meet the Naija Folks - Mondays and Fridays, Between 5 and 6pm

- Keeping up with the Sienas - Tuesdays and Saturdays, between 5 and 6pm

- Mr and Mrs Jarus - Wednesday and Sundays, between 5 and 6pm.

Each show will run for a period of 6 weeks.
