"Couple Fight 3: Weddings!" features real couples reenacting their real fights centered around love, weddings, marriage and friendship. Relate to the joys of relationships for better or for worse.

In Short: 
Although there have been two previous editions of Couple Fight, this was the first one we've seen. Wedding stress seems to be universal, but each couple has a different trigger point, causing meltdowns that were probably not amusing at the time. But with the benefit of hindsight, each brief scene takes a stressful situation and brings out the funny. Married or not, we've all had stupid fights, or at least known someone who's gone a little nuts over their nuptials. This fast-moving show packs a ton of laughs, and proves that "one day you'll laugh about this" can come true.
