5:01 am
hotter than usual, that may not be your maimagination. globally this past june,
5:02 am
scientists say this was the warmest ever on record and there's no relief in sight. on the heels of a heat wave earlier this month that set records in parts of the country, americans are bracing for round two of what's becoming an especially steamy summer. >> sweaty. >> sweaty out. >> there's not one person who is not sweating now. >> reporter: temperatures well over 90 will be the norm for the nation. factor in the humidity and in many spots it will feel like the 100s. in atlantic city all bets were off, as mechanical problems left some casinos without air conditioning. >> there's no ice in the building that we know of so we're going to go down and beg for ice. >> reporter: but along lake shore drive in chicago, fitness fanatics were undeterred by the sweltering heat with temperatures hitting above 90 degrees and humidity at nearly 90% this week. forecasters say the heat is so intense, even in the desert southwest, temperatures could approach record-setting levels there this weekend. all of that will make its way
5:03 am
east in the coming days, enough heat to make the summer of 2010 a scorcher, compared to last year. >> this summer has been a lot hotter. the heat has covered a larger area, and we're not done yet. >> reporter: and for many, that means cool comfort trumps fashion. >> leave him half naked. >> if you got a nice long sleeved shirt, designer long sleeve shirt you want to rock today, don't do it. >> reporter: some good advice on a day like this particularly. it's not just been an especially hot summer. scientists say that so far this year, they've seen the warmest average global temperature on record, 58 degrees. chris? >> elaine quijano in central park in new york city this morning, thank you. here's betty. now to the gulf of mexico, where bp and federal officials are facing a couple of crucial decisions today. the cap installed thursday on the broken well is holding so far, and as of now, there are no signs of leaks. cbs news correspondent kelly coy
5:04 am
but cobiella joins thus morning. >> reporter: the government officials later today will have to decide whether to continue keeping that well closed off or reopen the valve. a mile under sea, the gusher is still gone, but the government's man in charge says they may have to reopen the valve, sending oil into the gulf again. >> the course ever action that we have taken thus far is to continue to closely monitor, continue to do testing, look for any deviations in the prerneur readings that would cause us to believe there might be a further breach. >> reporter: the pressure is above 6,700 pounds per inch and slowly rising. engineers were hoping for a higher number. instead they have more questions. is the well leaking deep in the rock or has so much oil escaped already that the pressure
5:05 am
dropped? >> 6,700 psi may be all this reservoir can put out and that's the most likely explanation. >> reporter: engineers are looking for leaks with rov cameras, sonar and seismic testing. so far they've found none. if there is a leak and they keep holding back the oil it could get worse, causing problems for the relief wells, the best hope for stopping the oil permanently. 5.2 million barrels of oil have flowed into the gulf already. admiral paul zucrunft is in charge of cleaning it up. >> reporter: we're talking months. we're prepared to be at this level through the end of the calendar year. >> reporter: that super skimmer called "a whale" will not be part of the cleanup. apparently the oil is too broken up for it to work effectively. officials say if they had used it much earlier in the cleanup before any dispersants were used
5:06 am
it could have been very, very effective. betty, another lesson learned. >> all right, kelly cobbiella in grand isle, louisiana. apple ceo steve jobs apologized to customers who have had reception problems with their iphone 4. he offered a fix but at the same time jobs said it was much ado about nothing. bill whitaker has this report. >> reporter: sleek and glossy the iphone 4 was the most anticipated apple product in years. early adapters lined up for hours to get their hands on one and immediately started complaining. >> you hear me? >> reporter: john than called ap. toll tell them -- >> the phone doesn't work. >> reporter: it frequently drops calls, he complains. >> hello? >> we couldn't really recommend it. >> reporter: after testing the phone, "consumer reports" found a problem with the antenna, with this uniquely designed built-in antenna wrapping around the edge of the phone it's easy to block reception just by holding it.
5:07 am
what mocking consumers call the death grip. >> this has been blown so out of proportion. >> reporter: with apple stock taking a hit since they rolled out the phone 22 days ago and the phone the butt of jokes. >> to make a call you have to insert a quarter. >> reporter: apple had to act. it's offering a fix, bumpers, rubber casings to keep fingers off the antenna, free to iphone 4 buyers. are you satisfied? >> the bumper is like a band-aid. >> reporter: a band-aid for apple's self-inflected wound. bill whitaker, cbss now, los angeles >> joining us to talk more about the iphone 4 is expert katie linendagh. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> how do you feel? >> if this was boost mobile or samsung omniia, we wouldn't be having this conversation.
5:08 am
"consumer reports" came out it was really the catalyst behind apple coming out and giving out these free $29.99 bumpers. "consumer reports" said they could not recommend the iphone 4. this was huge. "consumer reports" is a trusted source. amle stepped it up and it was great they said humbly "we're not perfect, phones aren't perfect but we're going to make you happy." this is as much a tech issue and a customer service and pr issue. >> you have customers that have the phones, one-half of 1% issued complaints. >> yes. >> with "consumer reports" not giving this the old hands on go for it and buy this thing, that was what really did it, was it not? >> understand here, 1.7 million people in three days alone purchased the iphone 4, so when all these things started coming out there was reception issues, people wanted an answer and initially steve jobs said you're holding the phone wrong. you can't tell a consumer that. you have to protect the image of
5:09 am
the brand and understand the customers want an answer. he humbly apologized and put a band-aid on the situation. >> is it a band-aid or long-term solution and what is the long-term solution? >> they hope to have something resolved by september. for now this is the best they can do. it was imperative they offered something. >> what are you hearing from the people who had complaints and they offer this up bumper, are people happy with that for now? >> the statistics were remarkable apple did release yesterday, .55% called in about antenna reception issues, not a lot. 1.7% have returned the phone, and according to the 3gs their gold standard 6% of people returned that phone so are we really concerned here about the phones not selling? go to any store in new york you cannot find an iphone 4. the phone is doing remarkable, jam packed with features. is a version 1.0 mistake. >> what did you think of steve getting on stage saying "hey we're not perfect."
5:10 am
>> they were also putting the owe news on a lot of other smart phones. we're not the only smart phone who has reception problems. i don't think it was a smart move but he admitted there was something wrong and there were 22 superior scientists and engineers working on the problem. >> katie, thanks so much. >> thanks. let's get the rest of the day's headlines, rebecca jarvis is at the newsdesk. >> good morning to everyone at home. a sharp downturn in consumer sentiment and weak revenue from two major banks sent stock prices as the week ended on wall street. the dow closed at 10,097, a drop of 2.5%. the dow was off 1% for the week. investors will be watching a new round of earnings reports in the week ahead. meanwhile the president left the heat of washington politics for a little r&r in the cooler climate of maine. the first family is traveling with him and so is chief white house correspondent chip reed.
5:11 am
>> reporter: the president came to try to relax and escape the pressure of washington but of course as president wherever he goes the pressure goes with him. on the coast of maine this weekend, president obama and his family are taking in the natural splendor of acadia national park. it's a well-timed break for the president who is celebrating two victories, congressional passage of wall street reform and progress at least for now on stopping the flow of oil into the gulf. >> we won't be done until we actually know that we've killed the well and that we have a permanent solution in place. >> reporter: but concern that the oil could start flowing again is not the only thing weighing on the president's mind, as he briefly shifts into vacation mode, including a stop for ice cream in the quaint town of bar harbor. >> i went with coconut. >> reporter: one big presidential worry is despite his legislative accomplishments, his approval rating continues to sink and now stands at 44%, that
5:12 am
makes it harder for him to help democrats keep control of the house. >> the president has accomplished a lot, but in order for those accomplishments to break through to people and to benefit democrats in november, it has to affect them in their daily lives. that's not happening. >> reporter: and it's not happening because of jobs, and an unemployment rate that seems stuck at 9.5%, no matter how much the president says the stimulus is working only 23% of americans think it's making the economy better. and while he's here, the president is getting briefed daily on the economy, national security, the oil spill and other pressing issues. for a president there never really is such a thing as a vacation. rebecca? >> cbs news's chip reid, thank you, chip. the so-called barefoot bandit will soon be heading home to washington state to face federal charges in a string of burglaries and other crimes. colton harris-moore is being
5:13 am

5:14 am
weeks ago. bahamian authorities caught up to him after a high-speed chase sunday, barefoot to the last. harris-moore ran away from a halfway house two years ago. he starts now down a long legal road, only this time it will be up to others to decide his destination. michael williams for cbs news, miami. it's about 15 minutes after the hour. here's our weather warrior, lonnie quinn with a first check of the heat. how hot will it get? >> we're fighting the heat across the country. here in the city feeling in the mid to upper 90s. the weather headlines it's simple. we have heat for the east, we have heat for the west, we have heat in between. as a matter of fact, just about 20% of the country under some kind of a heat alert and if we talk some actual numbers, i'm saying all over, las vegas will be 111 today, normally 105 for you. phoenix will be 111, normally 107. los angeles 92, normally 84,
5:15 am
sacramento 100 today, normally 93. let's go back to the east coast and look at more numbers all around the area. what we're dealing with right now is a big flux of air coming in from the southwest. kansas city 95 today, normally it's 89. we've got the city coming in at 94, normally 85. baltimore 96, normally 88 degrees, but all the numbers that i just showed you, keep in mind they're all between 5 and 10 degrees above average, i haven't even factored in the humidity. humidity will be making a good chunk of the u.s. of a. feeling like 100 degrees or more. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend. all right, everybody, you stay cool wherever you are and speaking of staying cool, somebody over here at the anchor

5:17 am
5:18 am
good morning and welcome back. the economy has been showing some signs of improvement, but
5:19 am
unemployment across the country remains stubbornly high. a new book has just been released with some very good news. some industries are growing rapidly. so where are all these jobs? joining thus morning is career expert lawrence schakin who researched and developed the book "100 fastesfastest-growing careers." >> good morning. >> let's get right to it, the top five jobs number five, what is it? >> up from the bottom? >> yes. >> number five we're talking about the accountants and auditors there, and every business needs these. you need bean counters, people have to keep track of where the money is going and inventory is. every business needs this or farms it out to an accounting firm and this is going to grow n small towns, it's in big towns, in big cities. they're needed everywhere. >> they're everywhere and the income range is what? >> about $60,000 on an average. that's a national average. there are going to be variations
5:20 am
from one place to another. you get a cpa, you'll get more income than someone who doesn't have one. >> number four, we want to save number one for last. number four, medical assistants. >> think of them as medical office assistant. there are offices everywhere, medical offices everywhere, doctor's offices. when you walk into one of those, my primary care physician, half of the space is taken up with paperwork and the new insurance law is not going to reduce the need for that so there's going to be a very big need for these workers, they are expanding. >> what kind of training? >> mostly trained on the job, you don't need a lot of training for this one. >> the income is? >> earning about $30,000 roughly. >> all right, very good. registered nurses, i've heard this a lot. >> that's the biggest health care job we have. there are about 2.5 million people working in this career and it's growing at a rapid rate, by about 20% and there are going to be about 100,000 openings every year for the next ten years for the workers and
5:21 am
partly because a lot of boomers can't take the physical work that's involved in this anymore so of course the population is also aging so there's a need for more health care and most of them work in hospitals in big towns and little towns. they're more in cities but still there are hospitals everywhere. >> it is throughout the country? >> it is throughout the country. >> the average income for? >> earning about $65,000. that's really good and there's lots of room for growth there. you get a masters in that and you could be earning six figures >> that's awesome, good information. something we also want to tell our viewers this is not just growth for this year and next year, we're working several years out. >> these are department of labor projections for the next ten years. >> number two, computer network system data base administrators. >> everything's on computer now and the networks are everytwr. the data base is everywhere. every time you buy something on the web you're interacting with the data base and with the network and we need managers for this. it's not growing as fast as some of the health care careers but because you need a lot of
5:22 am
qualifications, bachelor's degree and good background in tech subjects there's not as much competition as there is for some other careers. this one is growing by let's say 50,000 jobs per year or so. >> really? >> yes, and it's growing rapidly at about 20% growth also. >> any specific area in the country? >> this is again almost everywhere but more in the cities, that's where the computers are run mostly in businesses in the cities. >> and the average income? >> that one is about $65,000 to $70,000, and you need a batch lower's degree and some experience. >> do you need a little education with that one? >> you do. >> and the number one home health aides. >> a big, big kneeled for this. policy in hospital nowadays is 24 and out the door. someone goes home but need care, maybe not be needing to be in a nursing home but maybe someone to help them in and out of the shower, someone to make sure they take their meds on time. they don't need much education, they get trained on the job.
5:23 am
they're only earning $10 an hour but there's a fair amount of job turnover, people can go into this, maybe they lose interest, go into something else, get more training and go into nursing. it can result in about 100,000 job openings a year, new workers ands replacement workers and growing by 50% over the next ten years. >> that is tremendous. >> half as many will be at it. >> this is great information for people looking for a on. >> that's everywhere, this kind of care is needed all over the country. >> lawrence, thank you so much for this information today. we appreciate your time. >> good talking to you, betty. move over, rover, a different family pet and there is reason he's dressed for dinner, he's flying "under the radar" next. you're watching the "early" show on cbs. you want some fiber one honey clusters? yeah. you must really care about him. what? no, no. you gave him fiber. no she didn't. this tastes way too good to be fiber. they're delicious crunchy clusters with sweet honey

5:38 am
angeles. >> according to court documents, she filed in her divorce case, tanya said jackson threatened to kill her and their two daughters during their turbulent marriage. tanya young-williams, i can see you wince hearing some of the excerpts of the mel gibson tapes. when you hear these things what type of memories does it bring up, what type of feelings come to the surface? >> when i listen to the alleged tapes of mel gibson i feel a couple of things, first and foremost i'm enraged, because it wasn't a year ago that we celebrated as a country the fact that we put an african-american in office and we came together, and then you hear this, and you know that racism is still alive and thriving in the hearts and in the language of someone else that we celebrate, so on that level it enrages me but i'm also disgusted because yet again another man, powerful, a celebrity has the unmitigated gall to think he can threaten
5:39 am
and bully and berate a woman that has loved him and bore his child so for me it brings back a lot of memories of someone just taking advantage of your love and your generosity of spirit. it's very hurtful. >> we want to show the folks at home some claims you've made in court documents of how you were abused in your marriage and i just want to show some excerpts here, from the court documents, defendant acts of cruel and inhumane are too many in entirety. he referred to plaintiff as the "b" word, defendant punched his fist through car window while plaintiff was driving and children were in the car. defendant in drunken stupor and in the presence of the children threatened to burn down the home and break plaintiff's neck. was this a daily siege for you?
5:40 am
>> no, for ten years it was not, but also consistent with what you see happening with mel gibson, that when external pressures, whether it will be financial or professional or marital, when they begin to mount, these individuals no longer have the ability to effectively disguise who they really are so they begin to crack. so as in my marriage, when things were good in light of the fact we were fighting at trial things were good, jason was not this person but as our lives began to dissipate financially and emotionally as a family, he became more of an alcoholic, he became more addicted to drugs, sleep medications, and then you see these effects. >> how much did you fear for your life after some of those threats were levied against you? >> initially, because you want to say it's due to the alcohol, you just listen to them and you dismiss them, but when someone continues to make threats over and over and over again, at some point you have to stop back and say, how about if he acts on
5:41 am

so are you confused about whether to buy an extended warranty on the big ticket items or wondering if that lifetime warranty is really a lifetime warranty? well you are not alone. sometimes the cost outweighs the benefit, in our "saturday bargainista" segment, susan joins with us all sorts of information, great stuff on whether we should invest in the warranties. good morning to you. >> good morning. good to see you. >> every time i go to buy something electronic they pressure you, do you want an extended warranty. that's my moment of panic. i'm not sure if i should buy into it or leave it in the
5:46 am
store? >> in most cases no. stores bring in $15 billion a year selling extended warranties so it's great business for them. >> yes. >> it might not be so good for you. >> let's do the math on it, when we look at the particular items, a digital camera. >> digital camera rule of thumb no, do not buy the extended warranty. this camera was $100. the extended warranty was $60. you can buy a new camera for that and the rate of repair on a digital camera is about 10%. so the chances of yours breaking really not very high. >> i will tell you i did buy an extended warranty on a digital cam camera, $600 camera, it paid off. >> you got lucky on that one. >> it was one of a few that have paid off so far. when it comes to flat screens i've also purchased an extended warranty on this, too. >> the rate of repair on a tv, 3%. >> that's it? >> 3%. so the answer is no, extended warranty on a flat screen tv,
5:47 am
you probably do not need it. >> it was a two-year warranty, i never used it. >> okay. >> vacuum cleaner. >> rate of repair 13%, this vacuum cleaner was $150. the extended warranty they tried to sell us was $50. >> oh. >> you know, if i need a new one i'll buy a new one. >> exactly. plus if it goes out who wants to vacuum anyways, leave it broken. >> yes. >> laptops, this is something a lot of people get worried and confuelsed about when it comes to warranties. >> here we have a maybe, because the rate of repair on a laptop is 43%. so if you're somebody you know you're going to be carrying it around a lot, you might drop it, might be taking it on road trips. >> right. >> it might be worth your while to get a warranty. 43% need to be repaired within the first three to four years it might make sense for you >> okay, when it comes to, you know, those limited warranties, those extended warranties, those lifetime warranties. is there such a thing as a lifetime warranty? >> we hear about lifetime
5:48 am
warranties a lot. >> is that true? >> usually there are catches. you need to read the fine print. for example if you get a lifetime warranty on a roof on your house it may only be good for you, if you sell your house t may not transfer to the next owner, so you need to figure that out. sometimes the lifetime warranty doesn't cover the labor or the shipping and handling, those are other things to consider, it might not all be free in the long run. >> some credit cards provide you with some protection as well? >> that's the other thing you might have an extended warranty if you used your credit card to pay for the product. a lot of credit cards especially if you have a high-end credit card will offer you up to one year of an extended warranty. if your manufacturer gives you a one-year warranty your credit card company will match it. >> that's two years. >> two years. >> the warranty i bought on the television i paid double for something i already had. >> probably. >> you've had a pretty good experience with a lifetime warranty, right? >> with l.l. bean, one company

6:03 am
since thursday afternoon and the test results are generally good. the pressure is a little bit lower than scientists would have liked, but the underwater cameras, the sonar, seismic testing all of that have found no sign of leaks whatsoever. already more than 5 million barrels of oil have flowed into the gulf. the coast guard says they will be here until the end of the year, cleaning it all up but one other development that super skimmer "a whale" will not be part of that cleanup. apparently this oil is too dispersed already for that super skimmer to be at all effective. rebecca? >> what's the sense from the average folks on the ground there? is there a sense that this is the final and ultimate swing or is there a sense that this could also be a miss like so many other times? >> reporter: well, because of the history of this over the past nearly three months now people here are playing this very cautiously. yes, they were happy, excited to see that no more oil was flowing

6:08 am
up empty, but now, six weeks later, all the attention seems squarely focused on er terri horman, kyron's stepmother to w.h.o. took the photo. her husband filed for divorce, gained custody of the couple's daughter and forced her out of the family home. a landscaper told authorities she wanted to pay him to kill her husband. then came an alleged sexting relationship with one of his high school friends. she's now the victim of a media frenzy and that she's received threats of harm from people in the community. despite the family drama, authorities have few leads, no named suspects and no sign at all of the 7-year-old child missing for 43 days. >> i can't say it enough that kyron is still out there and needs to be home. >> and joining us now are
6:09 am
criminologist casie jordan and correspond end for "in session" on trutv beth karas. investigators are asking for anyone who may have video or pictures of the day that kyron disappeared to turn them in. it's been a month since he disappeared. why are they asking for that now? >> they are doing a thorough investigation and need every image of this little boy that exists to see the very last time anyone saw him and what condition was he in, with his glasses, was he with his mother, what school kids were around him. >> it's been a month. seems like this information would have come out by now. >> perhaps. there are so many people and they have to keep probing. this is not unusual. they're going to look at everything. we don't know most of the evidence. >> we have no idea where this
6:10 am
little boy is. casey, the latest development, let me get to you, his stepmother will be moving out. wouldn't police want to keep her in the home so keep an eye on her? >> they're going to keep an eye on her no matter where she goes. i'm sure they have 24-hour surveillance on her. she has to be out i think by 3:00 today. they have watching her. she's been sexting with a high school friend of her ex-husband. whether she lives in the house or goes home to her parents it does not matter. she may not be named as a suspect or if he lishl a person of interest but everyone understands she is. >> why isn't that? why hasn't she been named? is that part of the key to this investigation as well? >> i think it's part of the strategy of how they're trying to get the evidence that they need. it gives her enough line, enough flack. this is not normal for the stepmother forming relationships
6:11 am
to kill her husband. the more they let her go on her own the more likely they could get the clues. >> on her own there's a security issue at risk perhaps, beth i want to talk to but that. she's saying i'm getting death threats. so is this a problem for investigators, for police? are they putting her at risk? is the whole system putting her at risk saying you need to move out of her home? >> one could argue she put herself in risk. i agree with casey probably have her under 24/7 surveillance. it's not unusual to have these threats being made. we see this all the time. we saw it against drew peterson, for example, casey anthony, for example, illinois and florida, people hold up plaquards and taunt them. people are upset and want her to come forward with what she knows because people believe she's not telling everything. >> reportedly she failed two lie detector tests. is this going to be anything that will be admissible in court, is this a big deal?
6:12 am
>> it's an investigative tool, lie detector tests are very good for police to use but right now they're not admissible in court because they can get false readings. >> it will narrow down the information. maybe they can't explicitly say what they know but exclude information she's not being truthful about. >> beth and casey, thank you for your insight into this. we appreciate it. here's chris. we'll switch gears a little bit, when we come back, what drives married couples apart, our couples have problems, the experts have some answers, we'll offer some advice in our "early" show "marriage summit" next. you're watching the "early" show here on cbs.

according to the national center for health statistics, 43% of first marriages end in divorce. now many of the marriages are torn apart by hot button issues such as finance, children, intimacy. this morning, tips on how you can prevent them from doing damage to a relationship and joining us robbie and couple therapist lori peun. married couples have been kind enough to join us and make up our panel. collective good morning to everyone. first let me see a show of hands, how many of you have financial issues from a couples' standpoint. how many of you are savers? spenders? okay, so it's pretty much right down the middle. i want to start, lisa and greg, you guys have a little bit of financial strain in your
6:17 am
marriage now, lisa is starting her own business. what advice can we give to you help things out in the marriage? >> well, i am getting ready to open a children's yoga studio in hoboken called mmi kids yoga, and it is taking up a lot of time and money and we're wondering with opening the business and our financial living expenses how can we still manage to live our lives, save money, and squeeze in a vacation or some extra fun with the kids. >> it starts with keeping your business and your personal life separate. so for your business you need your own account, your own atm card for that and as far as saving up for the big, fun things like going out to eat, vacation, stuff for the kids, you need to pre-commit to saving for these things. discretionary income, that's basically where those expenses are going to be coming from and discretionary income on a general budget is about 10% of your take-home pay. go home tonight, look at how much money is coming in and
6:18 am
reasonably how much you can set aside for the "fun stuff" and work within those parameters. >> mike and janice, you work together at home so you're spending an awful lot of time together. what is that doing to the relationship? >> that's part of the problem, that's why we're here. basically we have a home studio, we're working together every single second. when we leave and shoot weddings we're together and that kind of puts a little strain on our personal relationship. also, the fact that working from home, the business kind of spills over into our regular life. >> lori, how do they break that up? >> mike and janice, your question applies to people who also don't work together where they start sitting down to dinner and all they talk about is work or children, all you talk about is children, that's a problem, too. the first thing is to recognize the research shows that after
6:19 am
about two years of marriage, those "i love you" tingles, they go away, and that's really normal, and what we want to do is work on getting new tingles so that we don't find a new person to give us tingles. how do we do that? we start by making sure we still like our partner. so for instance when you wake up in the morning, do you say "good morning honey." when you walk out the door, do you say "good-bye, i'll see you later," "hello," things like that can keep a connection alive. you want to separate out time for fun that, might mean monday is a day with less work, mondays we'll take off together, we'll september aside this time because i recognize that if i don't, our marriage will suffer. >> yep, richard, patricia, do you still get the tingles like the relationship is new type of thing or what would be your biggest issue if you had to pose a question to one of our experts, financial or emotional? >> my question is as i get closer to retirement, our
6:20 am
priorities change, and at what point should i start becoming more conservative with what the money that i've put aside for investment. >> that's a great question a lot of us are wondering, right now, richard you're about five years away from retirement, so really you can't be too risky at this point. the rule of thumb is you take the 100 number and subtract your age and that's how much money you should have in stocks, and if you've got all your money in stocks, i would say you want to pull back and reserve money in cash and more safety areas because you can't afford to be too risky right now. if the market tumbles in the next five years you may not be able to ride out those fluctuations >> we'll leave it there for a quick second, a quick commercial break. when we come back we'll talk about how children affect your marriage and how to keep that relationship strong when so much of your time is dominated by the kids. this is our "early" show "marriage summit." this is the the "early" show on cbs. , and not enough sleep. what i wouldn't do for a do-over.
