Bravo’s latest relationship reality experiment tackles a doozy: “Newlyweds: The First Year.”

The eight-episode “docu-series,” which premieres tonight, follows four couples from their wedding day to their first anniversary, with cameras capturing all the trials and tribulations that often come with the first year of marriage — a period of wedded bliss … and major adjustments. Watch the Fantasy versus reality of the First Year Above.

You know what they say about the reality TV show curse! (Reality shows “curse” marriages, with a high percentage of divorces happening after a couple appears on a reality series, from original “Newlyweds” Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey to “Real Housewives” Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy, and many, many, many more.)

“Newlyweds: The First Year” premieres Monday, May 6 at 10/9c on Bravo.

Meet the Newlyweds Below:

How We Met: Tina and Tarz

How We Met: Jeff and Blair

How We Met: Kim and Alaska
