Sometimes, a blessing won’t come

Dr. Louis advises the couple to have a direct conversation with the parents about how they can alleviate their concerns, but recognizes that sometimes, that will only go so far. “Sometimes they [the couple] just have to decide ‘I’m doing this. I want you to be involved. I want you to be okay with it. But if you’re not, I need you to be silently supportive. If you can’t say anything good, then just back up,” says Dr. Louis.
