Teenage couple does the unthinkable in the name of love: they run off and get married at the tender age of 18. Their parents (also a nextdoor neighbors) are less than thrilled. As Tom and Jessie struggle to become man and wife in a world that still views them as kids, the tension between their families adds a dose of biting humour to their sweet love story.
Tom's mom, Judith, has a way of making Ben believe all her ideas are his, which makes her the real power of the house. Though her primary role has been Ben's Wife, Judith has had a few jobs over the years. When Ben was struggling to complete the bar, she ran a successful mail order business from home that more than paid the bills (though Ben's conveniently forgotten this episode of their lives). Still, she is much more comfortable exuding control from places that are hard to see. Judith is a traditionalist, and if the term may bother her feminist neighbours, well, she'll pour it on even thicker to rile them.
