Modern Love: Blended Families, Fluid Identities, and Digital Intimacies

This conversation will explore how blended relationships, gender roles, and sexual orientation have changed and continue to evolve. You will also learn how social media has impacted relationships, especially when people tend become more intimate with people online than with their partner.

Attendees will discuss:

  • Different kinds of modern relationships, and how people are learning to prioritize their blended families
  • How children change the dynamic of love relationships, and how couples are navigating this
  • How the concept of fluid gender and orientation identities is not just a phenomenon among millennials
