Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Sports Or Spouse

  Dear Mike & Liza, It’s foot­ball sea­son and that means I’m sin­gle again.  Not really, but it feels like it.  My hus­band only cares about peo­ple wear­ing shoul­der pads and hel­mets now, and I can’t get any atten­tion at all.  He doesn’t do chores.  He doesn’t want to go out.  And the only con­ver­sa­tion he’s […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Decisions Decisions

  Dear Mike & Liza, My hus­band is angry with me.  He says I make all the deci­sions.  I don’t know what to say other than “of course I make all the deci­sions!”  I’m the one that runs this house and orga­nizes this life.  I decide who is dri­ving the kids to what event.  I decide […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Isn't 40 The New 30

  Dear Mike & Liza, My wife will turn 40 in two years and she’s already freak­ing out.  Every day she looks in the mir­ror, sighs and says some­thing self dep­re­cat­ing about her crows feet or smile lines or freck­les. Of course I think she’s beau­ti­ful and I tell her that every day. I’m get­ting frus­trated with her bad […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Bathmat Brawl

  Dear Mike & Liza, My hus­band won’t hang up the bath­mat. I’ve asked him a mil­lion times since we got mar­ried in 2010 and he’s never done it once. Every time I men­tion it he says “Oh, I’ll remem­ber tomor­row.” He never does. Last night I was kind of harp­ing on him and he […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Baby Talk Or Smack Talk

Dear Mike & Liza, My wife is mak­ing fun of our baby. I know she’s jok­ing, but I think she’s going to do real dam­age. She coos at him and says “Why can’t you take out the trash? You don’t do any­thing around here.” When shes chang­ing him she does it again. “You made a […]
