Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Puppy Problem Or Parent Problem

man with puppy


Dear Mike & Liza,
My hus­band wanted a dog. We dis­cussed it and decided it just wasn’t the right time to add a dog to our fam­ily. The fol­low­ing week­end, his par­ents gave him…you guessed it…a puppy.
I was flab­ber­gasted! My sister-in-law told me his fam­ily had a lit­tle talk about how I “wouldn’t let him” have a pet, and they thought that was just ter­ri­ble. So his par­ents went out and got him a puppy!
I want to take the dog, drop it off at their house and drive away. He says we have to keep the dog and be cheer­ful about it so his par­ents never know how angry I am.
They don’t respect me. Why should I respect them?
Pam, Idaho Falls
