What’s next for the newlyweds?

Tessa and Mariah’s wedding is a historic event for The Young and the Restless. Aside from marriage, the couple is also planning to adopt a child. However, the newlyweds’ happy life may be disrupted.

Soap opera fans know that all couples have drama, and Teriah may be in for more trouble. Speculation is that Tessa’s family may stir up chaos. Tessa’s sister Crystal Porter (Morgan Obenreder) is returning for the big day, but could her visit bring disaster for the newlyweds?
