Marry Me, Marry My Family
Season 1  |  Episode 2  |  SBS Viceland  |  July 22, 2020

Sri Lankan Hindu Lalith has gone against his parents' wishes for an arranged marriage and chosen Chinese Australian, Louise. His parents refuse to speak to her and they won't be attending the wedding. Lalith has a tough job on his hands trying to persuade his parents to acknowledge his bride-to-be before the big day. Childhood sweethearts Derian and Jye are planning an extravagant, three day, 500-guest affair. Derian is a Muslim Gypsy and has agreed to adopt many wedding traditions to keep her family happy. Derian's father, Izzy, has instructed easy-going Maltese-Aussie Jye that his daughter must be a virgin until she's married. Izzy will find out whether Jye and Derian have kept their promise on the wedding night, when the sheets will be inspected for blood. If she is, they'll celebrate with an ancient blood ceremony called a Blaga Rikija. If not, he will disown his daughter.
