Leaving and Cleaving: How to Protect your Marriage from Excessive Parental Influence | S3 E19

We're helping married couples step out from under their parents' influence and truly embrace their spouses as their primary focus - and helping the parents to develop healthy boundaries as their married children step out on their own.

Is your marriage too crowded? 

If you had to pause to think about that, you may be dealing with excessive influence from well-meaning but over-involved parents. 

In this refreshingly honest episode, Steve and Mary Alessi share their experiences and wisdom in 30+ years of marriage, and explain how they navigated leaving the protection and covering of their parents in order to build a new legacy. They open up about their new season of being the parents of married children and learning how to give them space to establish their own homes, and provide a template for young and experienced couples to truly embrace their marriages as their primary focus.
