Bride and Prejudice: Forbidden Love airs Wednesday, February 26 at 10 p.m. EST/9 p.m. CST on Lifetime. The second season of the hit reality series, which recently switched from FYI to Lifetime, follows three couples as they deal with pushback from loved ones who don’t support their “forbidden” relationships.
Season 2 features three couples – Willi and Cameron, Blair and Chris, and Kiandria and Kareem – as they work closely with Married at First Sight‘s relationship expert Pastor Calvin Roberson to overcome differences in religion, race and age, while also attempting to repair their damaged relationships and uncover the real reason their friends and family are against their love.
The Lifetime synopsis of the series reads, “Bride & Prejudice: Forbidden Love is a social experiment following three couples who want to get married, but whose families disapprove of their relationships. Relationship Expert Calvin Roberson will lead the couples and their families through an intensive 4-week process to directly confront their issues. If their problems cannot be overcome, the couples will have to choose to get married without the approval of their families or go their separate ways.”

The Couples Deal With Issues of Racial & Religious Discrimination This Season
The social experiment, which takes place over a four-week period, follows three Atlanta couples as they deal with their disapproving families and attempt to figure out if they’re right for each other before they tie the knot. Meanwhile, Pastor Cal will also be working to uncover the deep-seated relationship issues between each of the couples, while also working closely with their families to “unearth the sources of their objections and perceived prejudice to help them find acceptance and support,” according to the Lifetime press release.
Blair and Chris will be dealing with issues of racial discrimination from Blair’s mother, who doesn’t want her daughter marrying a man with “communist” Asian roots. Kiandria and Kareem have a 4-year age gap which has put a deep strain on their relationship, while Willi and Cameron come from different religious backgrounds – Willi is Jewish and Cameron is Christian – and are facing religious discrimination from their respective families.
