Chip is unable to find his soulmate among reality TV’s hordes of dental hygienists and ex-cheerleaders, but back in Cincinnati, in the kind of suburb for people “who enjoyed owning horses or at least purebred dogs,” his ideal wife magically appears.

Jane, a beatific yoga instructor, has reconciled herself to single life and is seeking to get pregnant through artificial insemination. ’s clamorous topicality underscores the often-contradictory ends of contemporary marriage.

Chip and Jane, the failed dating show contestant and his bride, have the most faith in marriage as an act of love; tellingly, they’re also the only ones who never actually watch reality TV’s matrimonial spectacles.

Take one of the first and best: in a 1990s Beverly Hills high school.
