Creating a healthy and functional family unit is challenging. Extended family relationships often create conflicts of loyalty that slowly erode trust and intimate connection. By understanding the complications of family dynamics from a holistic perspective couples have the opportunity to be more intentional in how they communicate and create systems that minimize conflict and encourage empathy and loving support.

They broaden the viewers perspective beyond the more typical discussion of healthy boundaries in extended family relationships.
