Mike & Liza’s Marriage Ref: Don't Forget The Lyrics

Dear Mike & Liza, My hus­band sings the wrong lyrics to songs. Not cur­rent hits…songs that he’s been singing wrong for up to 20 years. I Google the lyrics for him and tell him what the real words are, but he just keeps belt­ing out his own spe­cial ver­sion. It’s dri­ving me crazy. Please make […]

Mike & Liza’s Marriage Ref: Team Effort Or Too Bossy

Dear Mike & Liza, My wife posted “our” New Year’s Res­o­lu­tions on the fridge this morn­ing.  She decided what “our” res­o­lu­tions were so “we” could work hard to achieve them in 2012. They are the usual, get of debt, eat more veg­eta­bles, and spend more time together.  I am just won­der­ing how she got to decide what “our” […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: No Follow Through Or A Nagging Wife

Dear Mike & Liza, My hus­band has the best inten­tions, but he’s con­stantly say­ing he’s going to do things (clean out the garage, put up the storm win­dows, replace that out­let) but he doesn’t do them.  When I remind him, he says I’m a nag. What should I do? Nancy, Rexburg

Is It Wrong To Kill The Hobos?

Dear Mike & Liza, My wife is so anti-killing I’ve stopped hunt­ing and fish­ing.  Now she wants me to stop killing hobo spi­ders.  I think they are a dan­ger to our 2 month old son.  AND, they’re just spi­ders. Tell her she’s nuts. Kevin, IdahoFalls

Can He Use Her Toothbrush

Mike & Liza’s Mar­riage Ref. Dear Mike and Liza, I have started hid­ing my tooth­brush.  I have even got­ten a decoy tooth­brush and put it in the holder, but I never use it. Why?  Because my hus­band is using it.  DISGUSTING!  We have been mar­ried for 18 months.  I have just dis­cov­ered this crime.  Should I divorce […]
