In Channel Seven’s new documentary series, Seven Year Switch, four couples on the brink of separation will embark on a daring new social experiment where they’ll put their relationship on the line in order to save it.
The brave couples at a crossroads in their relationship will get the chance to live with
a like-minded new partner in an experimental marriage, to help them decide if they would be better off with someone more like them. Then they continue to support them offering tools and strategies that will help them unpack their issues.
This innovative experiment, called “Switch Therapy”, is radical, totally unpredictable and life-changing.
The series begins with the four couples embarking on an emotionally difficult journey to help repair their fragile relationships. Viewers learn each of their love stories – how they met, how they fell in love, how their relationships took a turn for the worst and why they are willing to risk everything to mend it.
Two relationship experts, Jo Lamble and Peter Charleston, will help guide the couples through the therapy process as they adjust to living with an experimental partner.
Before the four couples embark on this brave journey, Jo and Peter will visit them at home to assess their relationship and living arrangements, then continue to support them as they adjust to living with an experimental partner.
Will their experimental spouses be able to fill the void they’ve been yearning for, or will they discover that the grass isn’t always greener? At the end of the experiment, each of the couples will reunite and make the decision: to either part ways, or reaffirm their commitment for life.
