Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Airing Dirty Laundry

Dear Mike & Liza, My wife insists on doing the laun­dry. She makes a big deal out of it. No one is allowed in her laun­dry room. The prob­lem is, she’s bad at it. She doesn’t take things out of the dryer when the buzzer sounds, every­thing is wrin­kled, and I don’t like the way […]

Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Converting or Crafting

Dear Mike & Liza, We just moved to Idaho Falls.  We are not LDS.  The women in our neigh­bor­hood imme­di­ately started invit­ing my wife to evening get togeth­ers.  She says she’s enjoy­ing her­self and mak­ing new friends.  I think it’s wrong for her to attend these activ­i­ties when she has no inten­tion of join­ing their church.
