Weekend Warrior: My Husband Wants a Motorcycle

Unknown-2

Dear Robin:

My 60 year-old husband wants to buy a motorcycle and I am dead set against it. He started making noises about this a couple years ago and I ignored him but recently he said he would be buying one in the spring. We argued – it was bad – and we haven’t spoken for two days.
