There is no question that “The Little Couple” has been through the wringer over the course of the past year. Jen Arnold has battled cancer, the two have adjusted to being parents of two children, and there were cameras there for almost the entirety of it documenting the show for TLC.
For any couple, this could be too much to bear, but these two managed somehow to rise above almost all of it on the emotional finale that aired Tuesday night. This hour-long special focused on the couple renewing their vows, and reaffirming everything they feel about each other after what they’ve been through.
This was a lovely moment between the two, and it even got casual fans of the show talking in a way that they do not always. How often is it that this show becomes a worldwide trending topic? We cannot recall too many of them, especially given that the series airs on a night of the week that also features another show in “Pretty Little Liars” that routinely monitors social media.
There are times when reality TV, especially the kind on TLC, can be easy to mock. Some of it is cheesy, drama-filled, or often just unnecessary or gross. “The Little Couple” proved again that they are none of these things, and they have crafted a show that is inspirational. We say this as someone who knows little about the couple save from what the show chooses to present us, but these two have managed to present the strongest side of themselves, and in between them and the network, set up a pretty captivating story.
