As kids, we all assume that adulthood is going to be this fantastically exciting perpetual vacation. No school! No parents! But in reality, being an adult often sucks. FX's new comedy Married takes on the crappier side of settling down, resulting in many laughs and all the feels.
Best friends (and husband and wife) Russ and Lina Bowman (Nat Faxon and Judy Greer), have it all — kids, a nice house in the suburbs, each other. But their life is not all it's cracked up to be: their kids are a pain in the ass, their house has put them in debt, and they don't have sex anymore. Even when you've won the privilege lottery, life can feel like a Sisyphean nightmare from which you are trying to awake. At least in Married, they've got Jenny Slate as their best friend girlfriend — most people are not so lucky.
FX's Married premieres July 17 at 10 PM.
