Rapid Fire: There's Just One Thing

He’s smart, kind, generous and oh-so handsome. You’re beginning to imagine starting a family with him. He’s everything you’ve ever wanted in a partner — but there’s just this one thing...

In this "rapid fire" episode, the Sugars read letters from four women who each have one not-so-tiny reservation about the men they’re dating. A black woman is dating a white man who is unwilling to talk about race issues, claiming that she’s “too sensitive.” Another woman’s boyfriend, a Christian, is having second thoughts about dating her because she’s an atheist. The Sugars tackle these issues and more, and weigh in on which can be ironed out and which should be deal breakers.
