Teenage Newlyweds follows three couples graduating from young sweethearts into husband and wife. The A. Smith & Co.-produced series documents the wedding and the early days of married life as the couples navigate careers, finances and mortgages while still working through their teenage years.

The couples include Halie and George (pictured), members of the Mormon Church who got engaged after a few months of dating; Brenda and Travis, who got together in college despite “clashing beliefs and values”; and small-town high-school partners Emma and Joey, who have different career aspirations.

The series – which has received an 8 x 60-minute order – will premiere on May 31 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

“FYI continues to create unique and entertaining content that spotlights the many faces of American marriage,” said Gena McCarthy, senior VP of programming and development for FYI, in a statement. “Teenage Newlyweds joins Married at First Sight, Arranged and The Seven Year Switch as one of our latest relationship franchises that shares alternative paths to finding love.”
