    An excellent, realistic episode albeit a little overly negative. Cory and Topanga return from their honeymoon to find they have no place to live, and must struggle to adapt to their new married life.

    Finally, a show that is not afraid to show the realities of married life for some people. Although it is somewhat out of character for Cory and Topanga (her especially) to have not considered where they would live after getting married, the writers present the issue in a fairly realistic way. The episode only highlights what their families had been warning them about: at such a young age, marriage will be very difficult, no matter how much they love each other.

    Others have complained about Cory and Topanga being whiny and overly helpless in this episode, however this seems a little unfair. The apartment they finally received is probably a little more disgusting than most newlyweds in their situation have to put up with. But it was a very good thing for the episode not to show them having an easy time of it right from the start. Newly married couples, especially those that are so young, typically do struggle that way. The only real complaint is that neither of them seemed to even consider getting a job. Their situation may be a little overly negative, as they have a very dirty apartment, no support whatsoever from friends and family, and no money. However, it serves its purpose to show that it is Cory and Topanga now, not Cory and his family. They had been repeatedly advised to wait until they were older or finished college, but they made their decision. At least the show was brave enough to tackle it in a realistic, even dark, kind of manner.moreless

    Back from the HONEYMOON!

    Cory and Topanga return and must face the real world. They have to find a place to live. Shawn moved into the apartment with Rachel and Angela and Eric and Jack moved into the dorm. Amy and Alan won't help Cory and Topanga by letting them stay there. They must live in the married couple's dorms. It's a dirty rotten dorm with a small kitchen. Babies are crying and couples are fighting. They are completely exhausted.

    This was a great episode! I liked it when Cory and Topanga were arguing with Mr. Feeny. That was hilarious!I thought that Cory and Alan fighting was really sad. I think that Alan and Amy should've at least let Cory and Topanga stay for a night. I loved this epsisode though and it gets a 9.5!moreless

    this episode is strange - it was ok but not the best (definitely not the best). cory and topanga act pretty much like babies instead of acting grown up because they ARE in college. they shouldnt like be going to class totally unkempt (i think that was this episode), but i just dont know about this one. and a married dorm in college? and the way that dorm looked? hmmmmm

    It's awesome how realistic this episode seems

    This episode is really interesting to watch because Cory and Topanga are finally thrown out on their own. For once, a TV Show is not afraid to show that it's better to force your kids to leave the nest rather than try to keep everyone around forever a'la The Waltons and 7th Heaven, where they try everything to keep their kids from moving away. It's even better next episode when they learn why Alan and Amy wouldn't let them stay there. All I've gotta say is...welcome to being married, Cory and Topanga. It's too bad those bugs are so annoying :-(.moreless
