A note from Nina Raja, a SAJA friend now works with Jerry Seinfeld's "The Marriage Ref" on NBC:
The Marriage Ref is a show about couples that get into funny, quirky squabbles. A celebrity panel comments on the conflict and decides who is right vs. who's wrong. This is a funny, very light hearted show. We want the couples to have bragging rights and a fun experience.
Jerry Seinfeld is the Executive Producer of the show and comedian Tom Papa is the host. It came on Thursday nights at 9pm when the first season premiered. The second season
that we are currently casting for will premiere early next year.
We are seeking funny, married couples with big personalities throughout the United States. We want quirky, specific topics that are discussed, here are some examples at

If a couple is selected for the show:
- They get a $1,500 wardrobe stipend they can spend on whatever they want
- A second honeymoon
- The possibility of winning $25,000. Out of the three couples featured on each episode, one spouse is deemed the most right and they get the $25,000 prize.
- The "most right" spouse also gets a billboard saying "I am right" with the Marriage Ref Logo
This season there is a HUGE focus on diversity. We really want to represent Asian, Latino, African-American and same-sex couples. Heterosexual couples are required to be married in order to apply but same sex couples just need to have a long term commitment that resembles a marriage.
"The Marriage Ref" is a comedy panel show where celebrities help squabbling couples make peace. Created by Jerry Seinfeld himself, this is relationship advice... with a comic twist.
"The Marriage Ref" casting team is searching the country for outgoing and opinionated married couples that have a long-standing argument or issue that must be resolved. No
problem is too small or too strange!
Whether you argue about stuffing your family pet or installing stripper poles in the bedroom, we want to hear from you. Tell us why you absolutely NEED a MARRIAGE REF to
weigh in and proclaim, for once and for all, who is RIGHT and who is WRONG.
Couples across America … we want to hear what absolutely makes you nuts when it comes to your partner! Tell us your beef and you might just get the chance to state your case
on TV in front of your favorite celebrities.
"In every episode, the featured spouses who win their arguments will compete for
$25,000 and the distinction of being judged the 'most right' of the night."
