The show’s premiere has introduced the lesbian couple Laura Leigh and Samantha Abby. According to IBTimes, the second season focuses more on how different are homosexual couples compared to the heterosexuals. The other three couples are TOI and Rouvaun, Erik and Nadine and Laura and Kirk.

Laura told E! Online that her perspective about motherhood depended on her spouse. She shared that all kinds of married couples have the same problems. She emphasized that homosexual couples are actually normal “just like everyone else.”

Laura and Samantha had been together for seven years before tying the knot in Sept. 7, 2013. Laura said that they have met at Emerson College in 2004 as sorority sisters.

The lesbian couple underwent lot of troubles in life, which eventually strengthened their relationship. Samantha confided losing her mother and almost losing Laura after a car accident in 2011.

On the other hand, Kirk and Laura Knight from Bethesda, Maryland decided to let the network document their wedding. Laura told Zap2it that the experience is actually “fun” and “interesting.” The couple met on a blind date six years ago. The other couple, Erik and Nadine Courtney, met online, according to Glamour.com.
