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 phrase, “death […]

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 husband, […]

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 complain […]

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 that […]

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

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, the […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Boy Behavior

  Dear Mike & Liza, Our 4 year old son turns every­thing he touches into a gun. Bar­bie doll = gun. Paper towel roll = gun. And if it’s round, he tells me it’s a grenade and then throws in into the other room and shouts “BAM!” I’m try­ing to raise a non vio­lent man […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Hubs Hates Her Hobbit Habit

Dear Mike & Liza, My favorite book of all time is the Hob­bit. I have read it every year since I was ten years old… some­times twice a year. (I’d tell you how many times, but then you could do the math and fig­ure out how old I really am.) I have sev­eral collector’s edi­tions of […]
