Netflix has once again come up with controversial content: The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On. The reality series is about 6 couples who have been together for some time and waiting to get married. However, one person in each relationship is not sure whether or not they should be getting married. So, in The Ultimatum, they have to choose a potential partner from other couples on the show, and in the end, they should decide if they are going to commit to their initial partners or move on.
Six couples on the verge of marriage are brought together because one person in each relationship isn't 100% sure they're ready to tie the knot — so for three weeks, they'll swap partners.
