Erik and Virginia
Y’all know Erik gets on my nerves. He’s entirely too controlling and acts like such a know-it-all when it comes to relationships. So I can’t tell you the absolute glee I felt when Dr. Pepper asked him straight up, ‘Why do you have to be that dog’s dad?!’ LOLL whew chile! That was the one. It’s not important. But it was clear Erik saw this as another opportunity to assert control in the house.
I was also happy to hear her tell him that it’s important to speak both truthfully and kindly. So saying if she doesn’t want kids, I’m out is not the best way to communicate that message. It was something Virginia shared with Pastor Cal as well. Along with her fear of having children–which again, is valid.
