How good is artificial intelligence at solving those complicated interpersonal problems that can strain our relationships?

Issues such as how to help siblings who fight over the best way to honor their dead mother or what we should do when a couple tries to involve us in their arguments.

Or how a wife should deal with her new husband’s demand that she go to bed at the same time as him, a source of significant friction in her life.
