Is a Good Marriage Not Good Enough for TV?

I will confess...watching reality television is my weakness. Especially the ones with "wives" in the title. I was watching a reunion special and realize that another addition had been made to the cast - a single/divorced woman and the other I'm not sure. The thought crossed my mind that several of my fave shows now have single women as regular cast members EVEN though the title refers to being wives or being in love. I'm not hating on these women by any means, some happen to be my favorite out of all their cast mates.

The fact is, we rarely see examples of good marriages. Many of these women are in their second marriage, mid-divorce, or still in the "newlywed" stage. The marriages we do see on television aren't without their faults, but really whose is? There's maybe three marriages TOPS, out of five or more women on the show. And it seems a lot of the drama flows from the single or divorced women. Just saying.

So does that mean that a full cast of women with good marriages aren't good enough for tv? Or is it that they're just too hard to find? 

I don't know. What do you think?
