When Peacock debuted its show, Love for the Ages, the premise was one that some married couples may not want to ponder. Whether considered the ultimate hall pass or a test to determine if the grass is greener without the shackles of marriage, three couples looked to rediscover the spark that first ignited their love. The show’s host and new E! Reporter Adrienne Bailon-Houghton spoke to Culturess about her impressions of the show and the important relationship characteristic that is essential for most couples.

For those people who have not seen the Peacock show, three married couples are at their marriage-breaking point. For a period of time, they separate and open themselves to experience relationships with younger people. Whether this social experiment is a test of fidelity, ageism, or something else can be debated. The reality is that underlying issues are more than just enjoying a dalliance.

As the Peacock’s Love for the Ages host, Adrienne navigates the sometimes-fiery interactions between the couples. While everyone might have understood what they signed up for, living that reality can be a different story.

When the couples returned for the reunion show, Adrienne helped uncover some lingering questions. Although many of the couples found their spark, a few unexpected outcomes had people surprised.

During her recent conversation with Culturess, Adrienne gave credit to the couples who were willing to step into this social experiment. She said, “the thing that I really love about this show is the transparency and the vulnerability of these couples. The fact that they are willing to put it all out there, share what they have been through, admit to what they need to work on in the marriage, and look towards moving forward says a lot.”

Whether or not there should be a clear answer as to whether a marriage is greener where you water it or on the other side may not matter. The situation dives deeper into understanding who the individual is as a person and how they fit into that life as a couple. Personal fulfillment and couple fulfillment need to work in tandem.

Specifically, Bailon-Houghton believes that couples should understand what their personal expectations are. She believes that sometimes people have unrealistic expectations and sometimes those ideals need to be regulated. A relationship evolves. Anyone who has been together over a period of time can appreciate that there can and should be strong communication to keep growing both as a couple and independently.

Bailon-Houghton offered a great visual that she saw online. While a glass plate might seem pristine when it is held up to the light, as it crashes to the floor and breaks into pieces, that original plate is lost. Even if it is carefully put back together those fractures can still be seen. It takes a lot of communication, effort, and willingness to work together as a couple to overcome those breaks.

However, each person or couple who works on those trust issues is personal. From full disclosure to avoiding secrets, those items are personal choices. While Love for the Ages might delve into some of those concerns, the reality is that any relationship, whether in private or played out on screen, is a commitment between two people. The method that works for them may not work for others.

Although part of the premise of Love for the Ages was the age differential, Bailon-Houghton can appreciate that age differences can work. Given that there is a 12-year difference between herself and her husband, she found that his experience offered her some attributes that she wanted.

While Love for the Ages has come to a close, Adrienne Bailon-Houghton is keeping busy. The E! Correspondent is bringing her vivacious vibes to the entertainment network. She appreciates that her job allows her to be a present mom and finds herself finding fulfillment in everything she does.
