About the Show

For Better or Worse is an American comedy-drama television series created and produced by Tyler Perry and based on his film Why Did I Get Married? and its sequel Why Did I Get Married Too?, which follows three couples who are at various stages of their relationships as they go through the ups-and-downs of married life and dating.

Marcus and Angela were first introduced to the world in Tyler's hit feature films Why Did I Get Married and Why Did I Get Married Too.

Tasha Smith and Michael Jai White are back to reprise their roles in the half-hour show. Michael plays Marcus, a football player–turned–sports commentator who owns his own sports talk show. Tasha Smith also resumes her role as Angela, the edgy and outspoken wife of Marcus, who is dedicated to her husband, children and marriage.

The show follows the lives of Marcus' and Angela's friends as well. There's Joseph, Marcus' best friend and business partner. Joseph is left devastated by his breakup with his longtime girlfriend, Leslie. Tired of waiting for a proposal from Joseph, Leslie has moved on to bigger and better things while staying focused on her career and her undying friendship with Angela.

Keisha, Marcus' ex, continues to cause a world of trouble for the group of friends and colleagues. And, Jennifer and Todd are still as crazy as ever.

For Better or Worse explores the controversial and joyous moments associated with marriage and dating in a 21st-century world.

For Better or Worse is produced for OWN by Tyler Perry Studios. It is created, written, directed and executive produced by Tyler Perry.
