When Lifetime dropped ‘Marrying Millions’ in July 2019, it opened to a great response from the audiences and became the network’s strongest unscripted freshman debut season in over 3 years.

In simpler terms, one half of the couple belongs to an affluent class while the other half comes from a modest background. Apart from navigating the differences in their age, culture, background, and lifestyle, the couples also strive to figure out whether their romantic connection is based on love or just money before they take the leap of faith.
