A hit unscripted series in the United Kingdom, "Wife Swap," is making its way to the United States. The title, which conjures up visions of a 1970s swingers party, is racier than the concept: Two married women switch places with one another for 10 days, living with the other's family and taking on the other woman's household duties. At the end of the 10 days, the families get together to discuss what they experienced.
An ABC official tells the New York Post that the network is developing an American version of "Wife Swap." The stateside version will be called simply "The Swap."
The article is unclear as to the meaning of "household duties."
If you value marriage as an institution, you probably want your children to respect it as well. In that light, which image would you rather your children see: A reality show built around the swapping of spouses, or images such as these, from Massachusetts? I submit that the second is far easier to explain than the first.
Wow, what a great site. I will bookmark this site and return often. It's nice to see sites like this.
