The show starts with an article that tells which “marriage rules” to break in order to help your relationship. A young teenage girl wonders if she is too young to date, a listener takes Mark to task on how he talks to people on the show, and another young woman needs advice on how to deal with the dysfunction in her family.
On a side note regarding the listener’s email criticizing the show, thank you Mark, Phil, and Diane (you poor, poor, poor woman) for being straight shooters instead of dressing up the truth or side-stepping it. This listener needs a reality check or just stop listening all together.
Sometimes, especially in times of renewing the heart and spirit, you need people to tell you the truth that you are being a moron. I can’t tell you how much this has helped me straighten up and fly right. (Cue that Andrews Sisters oldie gang!)
