A new season of OWN’s Family or Fiancé will premiere in August with a new group of engaged couples and their disapproving families coming together to unpack unresolved issues.

In the trailer for the upcoming season, tears flow, clashes erupt and some of the couples have second thoughts about walking down the aisle.

Per OWN, “The new season kicks off with an episode featuring Shanika and Justin, a young couple ready to wed but unresolved family issues have put the celebration on hold. While Shanika attempts to reconcile with her estranged brother, Toney, information about her past, and a shocking story about a prior pregnancy and baby that disappeared, causes Justin and his family great concern.”
