Bride And Prejudice

Bride and Prejudice, which has a similar tone to series such as Married At First Sight, explores what happens when love comes up against a prejudice so strong that it threatens to tear relationships apart. It tells the stories of six soon to be wed couples as they confront a deeply held opposition to their marriage from within their own families, whilst trying to organise their dream weddings. For each couple, there is at least one family member who is dead set against their wedding ever taking place. From race to religion, LGBT to class and age gap, the couples face countless questions.

Bride and Prejudice


Bride price, a common custom in parts of sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, including Indonesia, is a payment by the groom to the family of the bride at the time of marriage. Bride price payments (referred to as Lobola in parts of Sub-Saharan Africa) are substantial: in Indonesia, the mean bride price payment among ethnic groups that traditionally practice bride price is 51% of GDP per capita and in Zambia, it is 175%.

Many activists view bride price as repugnant, akin to the buying and selling of women. There have even been calls to ban bride price. However, when we discussed bride price customs with parents in Zambia, we learned that parents often view bride price as a compensation for investments in their daughters and as a substitute for the old age support that daughters can no longer provide if they leave the household to marry.

This season, Pastor Cal leads three couples from Atlanta, GA through an immersive experimental process with their loved ones to unearth the sources of their objections and perceived prejudice to help them find acceptance and support. Will these critical family members endorse the relationships and attend the weddings, or will they try to shatter their future happiness together? 041b061a72
