Netflix’s popular reality show, “The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On,” is set to return on August 23 with five new couples, and among them are a couple of Charlotteans. The show, which is a spin-off of “Love is Blind,” features couples where one partner is ready to commit to marriage while the other is not. The couples participate in a love experiment where they trade partners to explore if a different connection might be stronger before responding to their original partner’s ultimatum.
