Cindy claims her soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Marissa, has a very dark past, including prostitution. She and her daughter, Sarah, claim Marissa is selfish and manipulative and has lied about multiple pregnancies and miscarriages in an attempt to keep Cindy’s son, Daniel, trapped in a relationship.

Mother and daughter also claim Marissa has cut and hit Daniel, and say they fear she is putting him in danger. Marissa denies lying about a miscarriage and says she’s struggling to understand why her fiancé’s family hates her so much. She says if anyone is trying to trap Daniel, it’s his own family! Daniel says he’s had enough of being caught in the middle of these warring women. Dr. Phil sends Mike Bayer, a personal development life coach, to sit down with Daniel to find out what’s really going on. What does he discover?
