I have not seen this version but I have seen renditions of this show. Questions that are asked are always something LIKE: "How often do you and your partner have sex?" "On what day of the week do you normally have sex?" stuff like that that NO ONE needs to know, let alone get paid to talk about! My Mom also hated it since a gay couple was once on and they kissed whenever agreeing on an answer-that doesn't bother me too much now but still-that could bother some people. Don't watch The Newlywed Game-it's just dirty questions.
