KDramaCritic Short Review: 

I stopped watching Familiar Wife (2018) after three episodes.  The humor used in this romantic comedy is mostly cringe or awkward situations and I was not finding it to be funny.  

In addition, the marriage between Seo Woo-jin and Cha Joo-hyuk was clearly not in a healthy state.  In addition to the lack of communication, Seo Woo-jin throws items and yells at Cha Joo-hyuk.  In turn, Cha Joo-hyuk hides purchases and tries to avoid home (and by extension his children). 

When Cha Joo-hyuk wakes up to his new life with Lee Hye-won as his wife and she shows him basic affection, I decided that was a good enough ending.

So the three episode arc of man leaves unhealthy marriage for healthy one and has a happy ending was nice to watch (yes, I know this isn't the full story).

I even looked up the plot summary of the show to see if I was missing out and I still have no desire to watch more of the show.

My KDramaCritic rating is "Meh."  There are other shows I would rather watch.
