"Get My Groom to Grow Up!"

May 24, 2006

Do you have a man in your life who stomps his feet, pouts, whines and acts like a toddler? A bride-to-be is dealing with an immature fiancé and a meddling mother-in-law, and a mooching groom is living in his mom's basement with his common-law wife and baby. Today's guests are grown men whose loved ones want them to grow up!

 

 

Triangle of Trouble

Angee says she wants her fiancé, Bill, to act more like a man and cut the umbilical cord. She also says that her mother-in-law, Diana, tends to meddle in their business. Diana says she is tired of being dragged into the mess.

 

What does Bill have to say?

 


 

Aching for Attention

Bill says that Angee has some growing up to do herself. Even though they are supposed to marry in a few months, she still wants to be noticed by other men. She even has a profile on the Web site MySpace.com.

 

Are Bill and Angee grown up enough to tie the knot? 

 


 

Dependable Daddy?

Rachel says she feels like she's raising two kids, because her common-law husband, Tyler, is out drinking while she takes care of their baby and the bills. Tyler says he likes being a kid, and when he's told to grow up, it "harshes his mellow."

  

How will Tyler's behavior affect their 18-month-old son?
