OWN‘s hit reality television shows Family or Fiancé, hosted by relationship expert Tracy McMillan returns to television Saturday, Jan. 11 at 9/8c on the OWN television network. The hit television show follows engaged couples who bring their disapproving families together for three days under one roof.

In this high-stakes social experiment, the couples and extended families 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 families‘ concerns might leave the couples to reconsider their unions, or revelations might cause any concerns to fall away. Tracy McMillan returns as the voice of reason to work with the couples on ways to deal with their relationship problems and family issues head on in order to help resolve the conflicts that could undermine their future together.

“In normal everyday life, people suppress their issues,” says the relationship expert. The purpose of the show is to have those issues come up so couples can deal with them,” adds the television writer.

Check out the official trailer below:

McMillan offers, “When you confront issues, you get free.”

Family or Fiancé airs at 9/8c on OWN.
