Meet the Families

Mandy and Jeff are seemingly the perfect couple. But scratch the surface and things aren't always as they seem. They live in a beautiful small-town community, where Jeff is a financial advisor and blogger and Mandy is a stay-at-home-mom to recently adopted Janella and her three boys. They are actively involved in their church and their community. Most recently, their lives have been turned upside down since their adopted two-year-old daughter has become a part of their family. Jeff and Mandy haven't been alone in months because Mandy won't leave Janella with a baby sitter and romance has turned into resentment. Can they get their relationship back on track before the cracks start to show in their "perfect on the outside relationship," and what does that mean for the couple who have their lives planned out with a 30-day, 90-day, 1-year, 5-year and life plan?

Tam, a buxom blonde successful business owner, and her part-time bouncer fiancé Paul are at a crossroads; to marry or not to marry. Tam struggles with the stress and anxiety over having to constantly keep tabs on Paul's social media relationships with ex-girlfriends. Tam and Paul have known each other for four years and been a living together for three. They had originally planned on marrying sooner, but doubts crept in from both sides due to more recent blow ups, so they decided to work on their relationship instead of taking the plunge. These two love each other and their passion is undeniable, but both want the drama to stop once and for all.

Childhood sweethearts married for over 17 years, Deena and Andy built a strong partnership with successful restaurant businesses and a loving home for their three daughters. But something in Andy's recent past has affected the family more than they want to face--Andy cheated on Deena. He claims it only lasted a couple of weeks before Deena found out and he ended it abruptly. However, Deena still wonders if it would have continued had she not caught him and she also questions how many other times it has happened. They still fight daily and everything is a trigger for Deena. Andy desperately wants forgiveness but Deena says that she can't put a date on the day that she will stop being angry. However, it's not only about Deena and Andy, this is also about how the daughters were affected. When the truth comes out in this family, will they grow stronger, or grow farther apart?
