it's not surprising that you want as much control over the thermostat. but when others around you don't like the chosen temperature, does it mean the thermostat can create a tug-of-war in the home or possibly in the workplace? sometimes that thermostat cab good barometer of your pending relationship. >> reporter: mike and peggy have been married 34 years happily in you for the most part until you talk temperature. >> wintertime, i am perfectly content to have four layers on and have it set lower. . >> i don't like that i want to be comfortable and i am not comfortable walking around with lots of all bundled up. >> reporter: so, what do they do about it? >> this one likes it set down on 65 until i come home and then i turn it up until he realizes that and turns it back down. >> reporter: sound familiar? dr. greer says it's common fight between couples. right up there with all the
other big stuff. >> money, in-laws, sex, children, household responsibility. >> reporter: and in her book, "what about me" she explains this fight often has little to do with the temperature inside and more about something much bigger. control. >> if somebody is the controller. and if they are always setting the controls and the temperature being what they want, without considering the partner, that is a relationship that is out of balance and that is eventually going to have to resolve all the anger and resentment along with it. >> reporter: you are a lover not a fighter. what can you do. >> want a winning conversation with your partner? acknowledge how they feel, consider their feelings, and empathize with them. >> reporter: and dr. greer says show you care by coming up with a compromise. >> meaning, it's not going to be exactly what you want. it's not going to be exactly what they want. however, you can find middle ground. >> reporter: it may require you

told they have the job they just need to come for an interview. the only problem is they have to foot the bill for the flight. >> they capture the terms they want. be certain you will show up because they are investing in you. you should invest if them -- in them. >> reporter: wire the company to cover your trip but once you send the cash, you have been scamed because there is no job. so be weary of a company you are trade in asking for money up front for anything even travel. angie says you shouldn't supply your personal information to anyone until you met face-to-face and don't forget you can turn to reputable placement services to help weed out potential bad operators. >> it helps reduce the likelihood of falling into a scam as opposed to a well paying job. >> reporter: a job that brings you money and doesn't cost a dime up front. joce sterman, abc2 news. >> she says do plenty of internet shooting with any company that peaks your
interest. put names, numbers and addresss listed in the ad into google and dig up as much information as you can. that search helps the bbb figure out latest scam and it's used to advertise for all different types of jobs. megan. >> all right. thanks. well every monday carl delmont comes in and gibbs us great advice and answers questions. so, this morning, without further adue, carl from freedmont mortgage how was your weekend i always ask. >> good how about yours. >> thanks. good. the first question is from maggie in darlington who says my husband and i are veterans. and we use my husband's va benefits to buy this home. we have outgrown it and can wides -- with kids and home prices and low raids rates, we figure now is the time to move up we are use the va or is it gone since we only house. that's from maggie and todd in darlington. >> and the va is a great program but since they use the husband's eligibility, she has not used
her and she has the benefit. and they can bite next house in her name. not so much but both names but use her eligibility. that's great feature. they can do 100% financing no monthly mortgage insurance and it's great product. and the good news about va is the home they have is assumable. so someone can buy the house and take the payments. >> it's a benefit because they are veterans. >> yes if only one was a vet and a lot of vets who used their va eligibility think it's gone. and most cases you can reestablish your eligibility because times you don't use the whole thing or set it back up. so if you used it in the past you may be eligible again. >> all right. good stuff. next question let's get to it. i inherited a home a few years ago and i am thinking of selling it. what are the pros and cons of selling it myself or a realtor and that comes from matt and you hear that question a lot. with how hard it is now, people think why doesn't i skip the
fee. >> and they say i lost money or i wanted this much and i can only get this much so i will try to save. you won't don't want to be penny wise and pound-foolish. make sure you know what you are doing. because if there's a number things that are incorrect. we talked months ago. maryland has a loophole that the seller can actually rescind the contract. it's crazy things out there. i think at this point it's better to go with an expert. interview a couple realtors and you can cut a deal and say how about if we joint market i pay you smaller percentage if i find a buyer and there's things to work out. and realtors are look to work with you and compromise and help you market the property pu they know best and will have the legal and everything else behind it. so, while you can do it and if you know what you are doing, i would say the market if you don't know what you are doing, go with the experts. >> before we go forecast for next year? 2011 things will improve for the housing market? >> i think that the ecomony is starting to show signs of improvement. rates will go up a little bit and have been going up this
month. but what i am hoping is sometime maybe late first quarter early second quarter the fed may change the policy and start buying mortgage backed securities to keep rates down. and this last move was to keep stocks up. but if stocks go up the ecomony improve and rates go up too quick people lob locked out. people when they get jobs who missed out on the market will be able to refinance or buy a home. jobs will be a key component and should help housing. >> good stuff. thanks for coming in. >> thanks. every single monday. if you have a question, just e-mail us at morning show at wmar.com. charlie. megan thanks. time is 9:34. back to your two cents for the hot topic of the daych a bill signed by president obama will enforce new guidelines on school lunches. so on the facebook fan page we are asking you should the government be deciding what our kids eat at school. karen writes in saying if they change -- they change the menus

we will be watching radar with the snow and anticipation of getting a little more, ll disappointing out side the studios temperatures have dropped all morning. we are currently sitting at the daytime low 30 degrees. wind chill in the teens. and those winds are steady at about 15 to 20 miles per hour. so it's not an easy day to be outside. well, a take it up 95 and we have light snow and doesn't lock like it's sticking but south of bel air we have it towards aberdeen and havre de grace and cecil county where we have more snow. i guess as it pushes in your direction and you have another half-hour to hour to play with and more on the eastern shore as well. queenstown and easton and denton the stuff is crossing the bay heading in your direction. looks like caroline county may have a shot of picking up a coating or so of snow. moderation across the bay holding temperatures near freezing but we are very close to that mark. waterview one more time. watching this disturbance.
