“Family or Fiancé” returns to OWN this month for another explosive season of couples seeking the blessings of their disapproving families before their upcoming weddings.
Under the guidance of host and relationship expert Tracy McMillan, the couples and extended families live under one roof for three days and participate in activities designed to strengthen their bond, unpack their differences, and show some very complicated relationships in a whole new light. In the end, the experience will either confirm the families’ concerns, leaving these couples to reconsider their unions, or provide the families with a renewed understanding and persuade them to give their blessings to the couple’s happily ever after. I will be apart of the roundtable discussion next week with Tracy, make sure to stop back to read all about it!
