Summary
Modern Love looks at remarkable individuals who are forging new relationship trends in the 21st century. The award-winning documentaries examine couples who have found new alternatives for building lasting love in our post-modern world. We see swingers; a multiple partner marriage; a marriage with one gay partner and one straight; and a lasting marriage of two women, one of whom used to be a man. Who said love was simple?Titles include:Same Sex MarriageNelly and Andrea are a real life Romeo and Juliet whose forbidden love for one another tears their traditional Portuguese families apart. The girls marry despite the wishes of their parents. Today they run an unusual business called Our Little Secret which specializes in gay and lesbian wedding planning. But can gay weddings really bring happiness and healing in the shadow of prejudice?MatchmakerWhy does the modern woman need a matchmaker to find a husband? Parl Livermore is an American matchmaker to some of the wealthiest, most desirable bachelors in the world. She gets them to donate big bucks to her private charity in exchange for finding them gorgeous, brilliant young women to consider as possible wives. But can lasting love really be brokered? Witness a true life Bachelorette drama in action.Gay/Straight CoupleDiscover a real life Will and Grave story- except in this romance, Will and Grace are married to one another and share a naturally conceived child. Meet university professors Terry and Deanne, a gay man and straight woman, who have found a truly modern love. But can a gay man and a straight woman really make a marriage work? Is this just a passing fad or a lasting commitment?TransgenderImagine your husband of 25 years comes home one day and says he wants to change his gender and become a woman. Experience the remarkable story of Gayle, a small-town wife whose husband PJ did just that. Is love truly blind? Follow the pair to their high school reunion, when they have to break the news to surprised classmates.Polyamorous FamilyCan a multiple-partner marriage work? Is 3 really better than 2? Dawn was first married to Troy, but then both of them fell in love with Lon. Now they consider themselves a married triad. How does the household work? Sleeping arrangements? Polyamory is not widely accepted and society's prejudice against this form of marriage causes this triad to lose custody of their young son.SwingersIs monogamy necessary for love? Meet one outrageous suburban couple who participates in an unusual community devoted to swinging - where couples partake in recreational sex with other couples. This is an organized phenomenon where the women wear the pants and make all the choices. But are affairs in the open still breaches of trust? We take you to the Swingers Convention in Las Vegas and let you decide.
