Plot Synopsis

Unconventional, no-nonsense therapists help real-life married couples make peace with their meddling in-laws, doing whatever it takes for them to achieve a breakthrough. When one spouse finds themselves in the middle of the person they married and a member of their immediate family, these relationship experts bring the family under one roof and force them to face their issues head on with sometimes unconventional treatments like: tying the families up with rope to force communication; duct taping the in-laws mouths shut to get them to listen; having a mother challenge her son-in-law to sell his beloved car to help with wedding costs; and surprising a daughter-in-law with a trip to the pawn shop where she must sell all the jewelry she's wearing to repay mother in law. One of the therapists, Mel Robbins, is a former trial lawyer and relationship expert who devises unique exercises to get to the heart of the issue. The second therapist changed each season: Dr. Tom Kersting (Season 1), was a psychology, counseling and human development expert who makes his patients face their issues head on; and Laura Baron (Season 2), is a life-coach and advice columnist who uses her intuitive and customized methods instead of traditional therapy.
