Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Whose Parents Are Worth More

Dear Mike & Liza, My hus­band has made a lovely, thought­ful, per­sonal and quite frankly expen­sive gift for his par­ents this Christ­mas.  When I told him I plan to spend the same amount of money on my par­ents he said he didn’t see why that was nec­es­sary.  He says the par­ents will never com­pare gifts and […]

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 […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Crafts Or Cash

Dear Mike & Liza I’ve been work­ing on craft projects to give as Christ­mas gifts.  They are gifts for neigh­bors, teach­ers and co-workers. My hus­band says he is embar­rassed by these presents and would rather give the cash equiv­a­lent.  I say small gifts, made by hand and given with love are the best.  Would you rather […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Forced To Have Fun

Dear Mike & Liza, My hus­band keeps push­ing me to have a “Girls Night Out.” This doesn’t sound appeal­ing to me at all. I think he read that doing this will make me hap­pier and more ful­filled. I’ve tried talk­ing to him about this, but he just can’t seem to let the idea go. Now […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Put Out By The Pooch

Mike & Liza, We got a puppy about a year ago.  When it was lit­tle and cry­ing all night, my hus­band thought it would help if it slept in the bed with us. Now, it’s not a cute lit­tle puppy any­more and we have a 50 lb mutt right in between us with its head on […]
