Couples Court: I Think I Look Great in Skinny Jeans, But My Wife Disagrees
Aging gracefully is a delicate dance — especially for men.
You don’t want to look like your grandfather, but you can look awfully silly trying to look like your grandson.
This week’s Couples Court case involves a plaintiff who’s trying to maintain his youthful sense of style. But maybe he’s trying just a little too hard.
Here’s the evidence …
Dear Rik and Michele:
I’m a middle-aged married man and I recently shaved my head, grew a goatee, bought some skinny jeans and got an earring. My wife thinks I look ridiculous, but I think I look hip and cool.
Is my new look appropriate for a 50-year-old? I feel I can pull this off but my wife disagrees.
Well, jurors? What’ll it be? Should he give his new look a shot, or should he just give it up?
