True Life and falsehood

I'm trying to think of what wasn't discouraging about MTV's True Life, "I'm in an Interfaith Relationship," and I'm coming up with nothing. I'm sure there are people who've given honest, diligent consideration to differing faiths and their impacts on their relationships. Regrettably, they weren't represented by the two couples on the show.

Bottom line: I don't get how people can "observe" a faith that's shaped by their relationship (and thus, by implication, a God who's smaller than their relationship) rather than vice versa. At that point, why not just get a hobby or something?
