Tony’s family history and previous service in the U.S. Navy have been key factors in his regimented and calculated lifestyle. Angela’s constant pressure to dig into his family history before starting a family of their own has caused a major disconnect between the two. Things only seems to escalate as Angela and Tony both share the desire to focus on their own career, which may ultimately end with them on different sides of the country. Seeking understanding, patience and the ability to be heard by his wife has encouraged Tony to give switch therapy a try.
Angela is a confident and ambitious woman who grew up in a supportive and affectionate family. Her focus on her career goals and desire to start a family have put pressure on her relationship with Tony.

Bobby grew up in a lenient household where he learned to make decisions on his own. He is open and honest in his relationship with Rosslyn and hopes that one day they will achieve their dream of owning a home. While they both agree that having children is not in the cards, the challenge of justifying their decision to others often puts a toll on their marriage. Bobby’s difficulty with processing emotions of past experiences and his inability to be open with Rosslyn has made it difficult for them to connect. Fearing that Rosslyn may leave him, the switch is his only hope to avoid divorce.
Rosslyn’s outgoing and bubbly personality was the force that encouraged her to first approach Bobby at a party, not knowing that one day this man would be her husband. Rosslyn was raised by a single mother whom she lost to a pulmonary embolism, teaching Rosslyn the importance of family and spending time with loved ones. Though she and Bobby make each other laugh and love experiencing life together, Rosslyn feels she is not receiving the support and intimacy she had hoped for in her marriage. Constant fighting with no resolution has made Rosslyn contemplate divorce. Switch therapy is her last chance to make it work.
