Season 2
CC | tv-pg
Sterling K. Brown says that it's been difficult navigating his fraught relationship with his mother-in-law while at the same time trying to be empathetic to wife Ryan Michelle Bathe's own issues with her mother. The key is knowing what is a "deal breaker" and what you can just let go. "We get to determine for ourselves what we can and cannot live with," he says. "And sometimes you can't see how you're going to make it through. But if you just take it one day at a time, there's a way. There is a way if you are committed to finding that way."

Here, the Emmy winner opens up about how he approaches the challenges of marriage—and how parenthood has helped him keep his perspective about what is and isn't important.
