Relationships 101 – Difficult Father’s Days and Family Conflict around Weddings

Not everyone is privileged to have a healthy relationship with their father. Kelly Meister discussed her long journey of healing from her father’s molestation and her stepfather’s verbal and physical abuse of her, in the context of Father’s Day. Then Samantha Goldberg, a celebrity wedding planner, and I discussed the conflicts that can arise between brides and their mother or mother-in-law, and strategies to keep them from overshadowing the couple’s special day.
