  • I wish I had a nickel for every time I heard this. Our research finds that before a wedding couple satisfaction is mostly tied to, as you would expect-the couple. Couple satisfaction is a function of the couple's relationship. But, after the wedding, couple satisfaction is equally tied to the stepfamily stuff going on around them. Stepfamily couple satisfaction is a function of the couple's relationship AND the stepfamily dynamic. That's where they get blind-sided. Hey, we can help with that.
