Meet Gaynor and Ray Davies from Cardiff - two fifty-something newlyweds, both married for a second time. Gaynor's first marriage ended when she discovered her husband was unfaithful (multiple times); Ray's first marriage ended because he was 'impossible to live with' (or so his ex-wife never tires of telling him). But now they're both trying again.

In this 35 minute special we join Ray and Gaynor on their honeymoon to the Scottish Highlands where they meet a variety of characters and situations. And having only met six months ago, there are many things - not all of them endearing - that this couple keeps discovering about each other, often begging the question have they done the right thing?
