Bridezillas Reality Show

Bridezillas Reality Show

If any show reveals the cracking foundation of American marriage, it is “Bridezillas.” The show follows the plights of women planning their weddings, becoming obsessive and controlling, and often breaking down completely while their tormented husbands and friends can do little more than watch.

With divorce rates as high as they are, it’s curious that people are even interested in making a big production of their weddings in the first place. On the other hand, divorce rates might be high because our society has placed such a high premium on outward appearance (manifested in weddings) and not on inner reality (as experienced in the post-wedding reality of a private relationship).

Either way, there are no such things as Happiness-zillas who go positively nutty trying to have a good, balanced and respectful relationship with their spouse. Just “Bridezillas,” who lose all sense of themselves and self respect for the sake of having a day that appears to anyone who doesn’t really know them, as perfect.
