Marriage airs Sunday and Monday nights on BBC One at 9PM. The series has four episodes. The first two episodes air on 14 and 15 August with the final two on 21 and 22 August.

Alternatively the full series is available to watch online now via the BBC iPlayer here.

Stefan Golaszewski, the writer, creator and director and executive producer of Marriage, says of the show: “Marriage is a show about a couple and how they get through things together. I guess I’m trying to write about what it is actually like to be a person instead of what it is like on television or in fiction.

“People find things difficult and they don’t really know what they feel. They think they feel one thing but often feel something else. They often don’t know what to say to each other, which seems to be like a more truthful depiction of what it is like to be a person.

“In the show, that’s what I’m trying to do – connect with the audience about what it’s like to be them and live their lives in a minute-by-minute way as opposed to a broad plot thrusting way.”
