Marry Me, Marry My Family
Season 1  |  Episode 3  |  SBS Viceland  |  July 23, 2020

When Travis swiped right on Tinder, he found himself in a fast-moving relationship with Rabia, a Pakistani-Australian. To continue the relationship, Travis converted to Islam and agreed to marry Rabia immediately. Rabia faces ongoing struggles within her Pakistani community, particularly with her devout mother, Nadia. Nadia thinks Travis has converted purely for the sake of marriage, and fears a backlash from the gossip-mongers in her Melbourne community. Meanwhile, Indigenous Wiradjuri woman Jessa plunges into Maori culture. Her wedding to important Maori leader, Areti, will be heavy on protocol, with Indigenous elders, politicians and even royalty on the guest list. Jessa's greatest challenge will be performing an ancient Maori song called a Waiata at the wedding reception. She's under pressure to get it right, or risk causing offence.
