I think the show would be much better if the professionals were there for guidence....not to run the show. I have watched many episodes where the actual "couples" have had no say. This is a good way to loose a neighbor....I am a big fan of all the shows on TLC but not this one. The show would be much better if the actual people had the say, with some guidence. My husband and I got so frustrated on 1-27-01 that he had to leave the room.
