Ask Laskas: It’s Your Turn To Give Advice

Jeanne Marie Laskas writes our magazine's monthly advice column; now you help counsel this couple with their marital problems for possible inclusion in an upcoming issue.

My wife and I have developed very different rhythms. She drives fast, I drive slow. She eats fast, I eat slow. She gets a second wind just as I’m falling asleep. Every night she’s in and out of bed, rustling papers and so forth past 11pm. It’s disturbing. What can we do?

We want to hear your opinions! Comment below to weigh in on how you would advise this couple to handle their tricky marital woes.

      To Distressed Bro, August 2013 issue: Call your sister and invite her to lunch or coffee at a restaurant on a weekend day. If she balks, tell her you have a HUGE problem and desperately need her advice. Once you’re at the table, ask her what’s wrong. It may be something involving you and/or yours, or it may be something entirely different. Talk it out.
