This is a provocative exploration of the current state of our most fascinating social institution. For the first time in Canadian history, there are more unmarried people than married – a controversial tipping point and a dangerous one according to some. It’s prompted proponents of marital hearth and home to step up their support of the beleaguered institution. By using the stories of married and hoping-to-be-married couples, interwoven with expert voices on both sides of the campaign to rebuild marriage’s tarnished image, the documentary builds a provocative analysis of marriage in the early 21st century.
