Using the traditional marriage vows to guide the narrative arc, the show investigates how each couple has managed to keep their promises to each other alive, and where they have fallen short.
They open up about all the joys, excitement and intensity that come with married life, but also speak candidly about the challenges and hardships they have had to face to make their marriages a success and build a rock-solid foundation for their families.

Based on the BBC Studios format Life Below Zero, the Canadian adaptation follows a diverse group of individuals from different cultural backgrounds, including Canadians, First Nations and Swiss trappers, giving an unfiltered glimpse into how they survive in the coldest and most remote regions of Northern Canada.
Filmed across the Northwest Territories, Yukon and Northern Ontario, with a crew of six people, 120 days travelling and over 500 hundred hours of footage shot, the eight-part docu-series captures the stories of five 'off the grid' Canadians who must navigate through deadly weather, with limited resources, to seek out food, water and shelter.
From long, dark, frozen winters to sweltering, bug-infested summers, Life Below Zero: Canada captures the day-to-day trials of people living in unforgiving environments.
The stars of the series include Becky Broderick, who left Sudbury, Ontario to start a family in the wilderness; Bentley Kakekayash, who was born in a remote North Caribou Lake First Nations community only knowing life in the bush; "Pike" Mike Harrison, a self-professed "lone wolf", who has spent the last two decades living in isolation in a cabin he built himself; and best friends Kim Pasche and Pierre-Yves Duc who moved from Switzerland 10 years ago to live off the land in the Yukon.
