Married: Babs (Amanda Abbington) has realised her relationship is in real trouble. She can no longer live with her useless, but lovable, husband, Dickie (Dean Lennox Kelly), who has a unique talent for spending his days and her income on 'great ideas', all of which never materialise. Frustrated by his frivolous approach to life, Babs is faced with one of the biggest decisions of her life. Should she divorce Dickie after all they've been through together?

Single: Clint (Ralf Little), Dickie's brother, has never dated the same girl twice. Until he meets Abbey (Miranda Raison), a gorgeous model, who turns his world upside down and makes him question his one night stand approach to relationships. For the first time in his life he wants a proper relationship. And in order to persuade her he's boyfriend material, Clint has to change his attitude to love and romance. Is he a confirmed womaniser or will he settle down and be faithful to one woman for the rest of his life?

Other: Childhood sweethearts, Lillie (Lucy Davis) and Eddie (Shaun Dooley), have been together for 16 years and are blissfully happy. Eddie has actually proposed on 16 occasions, but each time he crashes and burns. Lillie still refuses to wed Eddie, claiming she loves him too much to marry him. However, when she encounters an abusive husband, whilst working at the women's refuge, her opinion on life dramatically changes. She also realises how much her young son and child prodigy, Joe (Jack Scanlan) wants her to marry his dad when she finds his blue scrapbook containing all his research on weddings. This is a life-changing moment for Lillie as the impact of what she's discovered sinks in.
