When "Newlyweds: The First Year" returns on Bravo with the premiere of season 2 this Tuesday, 10 March, at 10pm, it will introduce lesbian couple Samantha Abby and Laura Leigh Abby to the viewers.
Though the reality series will also explore the life of other three couples -- Kirk and Laura, Nadine and Erik as well as Rouvaun and TOI -- the show will focus more on the difference between gay and straight couples.
"Viewers should tune in and watch us go through it. They'll see how we're similar and how we're different and what our ideas of motherhood are separately," Laura told E!Online.
However, she feels that all the couples share the same problems whether they are gay or straight. "People have a lot of misconceptions about what a gay couple looks like. But when they watch, they'll realise every couple—gay or straight—we fight about the same stuff you fight about. We have a pretty normal relationship just like everyone else. We wanted to show that transparency," she said.
Meanwhile, the newly wed also spoke about the problems they are going to face while representing the lesbian couple. According to her, there will be lot of pressure put on them to portray the gay couple across the globe but she believes that they can only represent themselves.
Samantha and Laura dated for seven years before getting married on 7 September 2013. "We met in 2004 at Emerson College. I was a sister and Sam was pledging and everything started from there. Eventually a relationship blossomed," Laura recollected.
In the meantime, Samantha shared some of their bitter experiences in life. "In 2011, my mom passed away shortly after that Laura was hit by a car and lost her ear. We had a tough year and I think I realised I didn't want to go through anything without her, good or bad. That's when I knew. She knew it too," she said.
