In family systems theory, this is called "triangulating. He has created a triangle in which his wife feels she is not his primary concern or priority. Eliminating triangles is one of the biggest challenges in all marriages, especially for newlyweds. Separating from one's family of origin and realigning one's loyalties with one's spouse is not an easy task.
Yet, it must be done before a strong marriage bond can develop between husband and wife. The problem of triangulating demonstrates the psychological genius of Judaism.King / Queen Relationship
The sages teach us that special attention must be given to the first year of marriage, in Hebrew reverently referred to as "shanah rishonah. There are many Jewish laws associated with this first year of marriage designed to give the new bride and groom every chance to bond and form an alliance like a "king and queen.

It becomes clear that it can take days for the couple to recover separately from an event like this. The role of the PACT therapist is to push couples down the tube of secure functioning, toward each other and into the couple bubble for protection. I invite them to stage in real time being the King and Queen in this case, host and hostess in the protection of each other with their challenging guests. I offer the psycho-education that they are in the role of protector of each other, as the public stewards of their relationship.
The process is to take a second pass through the scene, during which they can practice secure functioning.

Being side by side would leave them more prone to perceiving each other as predatory. They think up the ruse of tasting or stirring the gravy as a means to allow them to escape to the kitchen together and check in with each other.
I suggest eye gazing, making faces at each other, eye rolling at the stepfather, and embracing as means for arousal regulation through interaction and levity so they can respond as a couple to the activation they feel from the challenging personality styles in the family. She says that when she notices his arousal level shifting, she will suggest that he take the dog for a walk while she continues to host the guests.
He can reciprocate for her later. After dinner, they plan to sit their guests in front of the television with a box of chocolates while they clean up in the kitchen, which will give them more time together as a couple to decompress, connect, and protect.
PACT takes the therapeutic stance that one does not have to have a secure model growing up to have a secure, protected, loving, and nurturing relationship as an adult.
