In case you are unfamiliar with the show, the premise of Wife Swap is to take two different families and have the moms switch places to experience how another family lives. Half of the week, the mom lives the life of the family she is staying with. Then she introduces a "rule change" where she implements rules and activities that her family has. It's a positive experience for people to not only learn but teach about other families and other ways of life.

Wife Swap airs on Disney-owned ABC television on Mondays at 8 pm—the family hour! There is another show that copies ours. We focus on having fun, learning and teaching. They focus on conflict. I just want to make sure our show doesn't get confused with theirs!

Potential families can live anywhere in the United States, but we ask that families applying for the show consist of two parents and have at least one child, age 7 -17 living at home.

If you and your family meet the requirements as stated above and are interested in this opportunity, please contact me right away! This is a very unique experience that can be life changing for everyone. In addition, each family that tapes an episode of Wife Swap receives a financial honorarium.
