          Roles in Marriage

          March 24, 2003

          Classic Dr. Phil

           



          Dr. Phil and his wife Robin trade roles for this show. It’s a “first” when Dr. Phil takes a trip to the grocery store, does the laundry, and bakes a cake (or at least tries to)! How did Dr. Phil do?

           

           

          See for yourself!

           

           
          While Dr. Phil and Robin have come up with a division of labor that works for them, these couples turn to Dr. Phil for help.

          When he comes home, Kenny feels entitled to kick his feet up, drink a beer, and watch TV. His wife works full time, and after 10 years of marriage, she’s on the verge of calling it quits.

           

           

           

          “What’d you do between 3:00 and 6:00?” Mark asks his fiancé when dinner isn’t made. “His fantasy would be for me to have the house spotless, waiting with dinner in hand, a beer, in my little French maid outfit,” says Molly. 

           

           

          Deb thinks her husband should expect dinner when he gets home, and shouldn’t be washing dishes or doing laundry. When he pitches in around the house, she feels like he’s taking away from her contribution, and she gets angry.
