Okay so this movie (I Give It A Year) is actually pretty good. It is about a couple who got married after knowing each other for 7 months and within 9 months, *hated* being married. So they went to a therapist who suggested if they want to make it work, they aim for a year. For one entire year, be completely committed to each other. They started having a much better relationship- taking out the trash, sending roses etc. At one year they had a celebration and said in front of all their friends something along the lines of, “I don’t appreciate any of your small quirks and you deserve someone who does. We tried, it didn’t work, I love you but I am NOT in love with you, can we please get a divorce?” They are then able to both go chase the people they really do care about and find themselves better with.
Marriage is meant to be a forever thing but it isn’t for most couples especially in today’s society. That being said, I think it is really important to not shame people for making a healthy decision ESPECIALLY if they tried to make it work.
This movie did have a bit of cheating which I hate hate hate in romantic movies but they addressed it and I think that the couple and their friends were portrayed in a positive and realistic way. Also it is on Netflix.
