LISTEN: "My husband is too attached to his first car"

There are few bonds as strong as the one between a man and his first car...

LISTEN: "My husband is too attached to his first car"

Every Monday, Rob Forbes and Rozanne McKenzie will sift through their mailbag looking to help a listener in need.

Not all are equally as serious, but no matter the issue, the team will address them all with the same intensity.

LISTEN: "I think he touches the console remote more than he touches me"

And with the help of Jacaranda FM listeners, the team will do their best to assist the person in need.

Here's a look at the e-mail we've received:

"Hi Rob and welcome back Roz!

I’m hoping you guys can find this in your Monday Mailbag and possibly help a girl out.

My husband and I have recently welcomed our first baby together and we are over the moon. Something we obviously now must consider since starting our family is that we are going to need a different type of car.

We both know that it’s time for a safe and reliable family car so together we’ve decided that my husband will be selling his car, which was his first ever car.

While he is happy to do it so we can find a better car, he seems devastated to be getting rid of his first wheels.

The way he talks about this old car, the way he looks at it and how sad he seems when we discuss the sale of it.

Can you please provide me some clarity? Why does he seem so attached to this old, worn-out car? Am I missing something?

 Thanks so much."
