On YouTube, a mother recorded her 4 year old daughter crying and asked her why she was crying.

Don't split household chores in your marriage!!!

A lot of talk yesterday about our Afternoon Game Show Question - "Couples that do this one thing increase chance of divorce by 50%.  What?"

The answer was splitting household chores equally.  Many people disputed this, so I thought I would post the link to this story.

The WIKY Facebook Page and a post yesterday

Mark Elliott – program director of WIKY Radio here.  Yesterday, a listener (Angie Walker Leslie) posted on the WIKY Facebook page about a news story.  I won’t recap the story here, as it was tragic and very personal for Ms. Leslie. (Click here for a link to the story in the Local News section of this site.)  However, in that post there were some claims about the news story that were not true.  We debated removing the post but thought it best to reply in the comments, which we did.
