By the eighth year, the honeymoon period had long given way to “the salt and vinegar of daily life.” “Even the tongue and teeth occasionally get in each other’s way,” Imagine saying this not to a marriage counselor, but to a man who goes by the title of 'Mistress Dispeller'.

Tune in, and uncover the enigma of Mistress Dispellers.
