Let's get straight to the point -- because that's what this week's Couples Court case is all about. The point of a needle, to be exact. The kind they use to pierce ears ...

Dear Rik and Michele:

My ex and I are battling over our 7-year-old son's ears.

My ex wants to get his left ear pierced because he thinks it will look "cool." I think 7 years old is too young for a piercing and will invite bullying. Can you ask other parents what they think?

Who's right, me or my ex?


Yowch! Sticky one.

What do you think, Bull Pen jurors? Tune in Thursday morning as we try to reach a verdict.
