Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Who Whacks The Weeds

  Dear Mike & Liza, My husband and I are fighting about yard work. I like to mow the lawn. I do NOT like to use the weed whacker. He insists that mowing is his job and I should just do the trimming. I really, really hate the weed whacker. Should I just call a […]



Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Whose Hair Is It

  Dear Mike & Liza, My 9 year old daughter wants a short haircut, but Daddy thinks it should be left long.  It’s summer.  It’s going to get hot.  She has to take care of it herself.  She’s going to be in the pool all summer.  It’s her hair!  I want to take her to my salon today, […]



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 […]



Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Disgusting Digestion Discussion

Dear Mike & Liza, My husband just turned 40 and now views food only in terms of his digestive health. He talks about it in detail all the time. We went out to dinner with friends, and he ordered extra broccolli, explaining the benefits of fiber to the whole table. He ended by quoting the […]



Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: More Mother In Law Troubles

  Dear Mike & Liza, I’m totally intimidated by my Mother-In-Law.  She’s very nice and I don’t think she’s ever really tried to make me stress out, but I still do.  My husband keeps telling me to relax around her and just enjoy our time together.  I can’t seem to do that.  I’m driving myself, my […]



Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Keep Complaining Or Quit

  Dear Mike & Liza, My wife needs to quit her job.  She comes home from work every night and complains, complains, complains about her job.  It’s not like she’s a top executive at a fortune 500 company.  She works in retail.  She can get another job selling clothes. I’m just tired of hearing her […]



Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Should A Spouse Have Password Privacy

  Dear Mike & Liza, My wife and I have a disagreement about privacy and technology.  She says that she shouldn’t have to share her phone, email and Facebook passwords with me.  I say if she doesn’t have anything to hide, it shouldn’t be a problem.  It’s not that I don’t trust her, it’s just […]



Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Healthy Habits Or Dangerous Dieting

Dear Mike & Liza, Have you heard the news story about the mom who put her 7 year old daughter on a diet?  Our 9 year old son is also overweight.  I want to help him create a diet plan and learn how to manage and control food.  My husband says putting a child on […]



Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Home Tour Troubles

  Dear Mike & Liza, My wife gives “the tour” of our house every time guests come over.  I think it’s really strange.  She’ll say “would you like the tour” and then show them every room.  They don’t want to see that.  I think there should be public areas of our house – the kitchen, […]
