A religious couple has agreed to switch spouses in a last ditch attempt to save their marriage after one of them moved out and stopped going to church. 

Charles and Kenya are one of four couples who are turning to switch therapy and spending two weeks in experimental marriages with other people’s spouses on the third season of the Lifetime reality series Seven Year Switch. 

In a preview clip for Tuesday night’s premiere, they explain how they first fell for each other — and how their relationship eventually fell apart after 10 years of marriage.

Back in the day: Religion was important to them when they first met 12 years ago, but Charles has moved out of their home and stopped going to church with her

‘What first attracted me to Kenya was her booty was just bootylicious,’ Charles says, and she admits with a laugh that she had ‘no idea’ it was her backside that initially caught his attention.

While he was attracted her physique, Kenya recalls liking his religious-oriented pick-up line.   

‘I mean there are very few guys that would approach you and say, “Hey are you saved?” 

‘So I knew that his faith was very important to him and it was extremely important to me as well,’ she explains. 

After two years together, they said ‘I do’ at a small church in Cleveland, Ohio, and Kenya can’t help gush about how ‘gorgeous’ their wedding was.

Looking back: When they first met, Charles asked Kenya if she was ‘saved.’ She admitted she liked his religious-oriented pick-up line because her faith is important to her 

They do! The two got married at a small church in Cleveland, Ohio, two years after they started dating 

A portion of the clip shows them interacting at home, and the honeymoon is clearly over the couple after more than a decade together.    

‘Are you really going to have me go to church by myself, huh?’ Kenya asks Charles, who hits back: ‘It wouldn’t be the first time.’

‘He’s chosen to take the selfish route and live life on his own terms, and they’re not the same terms that we got married under,’ she tells the camera. 

When Kenya asks Charles what he plans on doing while she is at church, he says he is going to ‘watch a little basketball’ at his place. 

Yikes: A decade later, Charles won’t even go to church with Kenya when she asks him to 

See ya: Charles and Kenya are also living in separate places, and he can be seen leaving her house after he refused to go to church with her 

‘Kenya has standards that have to be met, I am clearly just not meeting them,’ he says, and she agrees. 

The couple, who appear on the premiere of Seven Year Switch, which airs on July 17 at 10pm ET, then share a hug before he leaves and heads back to his place.   

‘We’re separated. She has her own space. I have my own space,’ Charles explains. ‘I love Kenya, and I want to get back to the love that we used to have. 

‘We are at a very critical time. This is a last chance, like the championship round of boxing.’

‘This is the last hurrah,’ Kenya adds.
